Her Royal Spyness

(A Royal Spyness Mystery #1)

Berkley Prime Crime

ISBN #0425215679


Her ridiculously long name is Lady Victoria Georgiana Charlotte Eugenie, daughter to the Duke of Atholt and Rannoch. And she is flat broke. As the thirty-fourth in line for the throne, she has been taught only a few things, among them, the perfect curtsey. But when her brother cuts off her allowance, she leaves Scotland, and her fiancé Fish-Face, for London, where she has:

a) worked behind a cosmetics counter—and gotten sacked after five hours
b) started to fall for a quite unsuitable minor royal
c) made some money housekeeping (incognita, of course), and
d) been summoned by the Queen to spy on her playboy son

Then an arrogant Frenchman, who wants her family’s 800-year-old estate for himself, winds up dead in her bathtub. Now her most important job is to clear her very long family name.

(A Royal Spyness Mystery #2)

Berkley Prime Crime

ISBN #0425221636

The Queen of England has concocted a plan in which Georgie is to entertain a Bavarian princess—and conveniently place her in the playboy Prince’s path, in the hopes that he might finally marry.

But queens never take money into account. Georgie has very little, which is why she moonlights as a maid-in-disguise. She must draw up plans: clean house to make it look like a palace; have Granddad and her neighbor pretend to be the domestic staff; un-teach Princess Hanni the English she’s culled from American gangster movies; cure said Princess of her embarrassing shoplifting habit; and keep an eye on her at parties. Then there’s the worrying matter of the body in the bookshop and Hanni’s unwitting involvement with the Communist Party. It’s enough to drive a girl crazy…

A Royal Spyness mystery starring Lady Georgiana, thirty-fourth in line for the throne—and the mystery world’s favorite penniless heiress.

With its posh clientele in the country for the summer, Georgie’s housecleaning business has fizzled. So she tries hiring herself out as a dinner and theatre companion. But her first client has quite the wrong idea. To avoid further scandal, Georgie’s shipped home to Castle Rannoch, where her summer plans include honoring a promise to Her Majesty to keep Castle Rannoch’s divorcée houseguest from seducing the Prince of Wales. She’s also been coerced into helping Scotland Yard with a top-secret mission—namely keeping an eye on the shooting party at Balmoral and preventing someone from shooting the Prince. And Georgie must manage all this without strangling her odious sister-in-law Fig or spineless brother Binky.

In 1933, Georgie, the mystery world’s favorite penniless heiress, escapes to the French Riviera after Her Majesty the Queen sends her there on a mission to recover her stolen snuff box.

Lady Georgie is honored to be trusted by the Queen—and even more honored when she meets Coco Chanel and is asked to model her latest clothing line. But when a necklace belonging to the Queen is stolen on the catwalk, Georgie not only has to find two priceless items—she also has an unsolved murder on her hands and has to keep an eye on her love interest, Darcy O’Mara, who has been acting awfully suspicious throughout Georgie’s ordeal.

The Twelve Clues of Christmas

Published August 6th:  HEIRS AND GRACES.

(The seventh book in the Royal Spyness mystery series)

The perfect Fix between seasons for Downton Abbey Addicts!” New York Times Bestselling Author Deborah Crombie.

 

“Charming, witty, sassy, and brilliantly plotted, Bowen’s latest Royal Spyness book is perfect for steamy summer evenings.” RT Reviews, Top Pick.

Heirs and Graces is the seventh installment in Rhys Bowen’s utterly fabulous Royal Spyness Mystery series. It’s Agatha Christie meets P.G.  Wodehouse with a dash of Downton  Abbeythrown in for good measure, and it’s every bit as extraordinary as  its predecessors.  (The Season for Romance Magazine Review)

 

As 35th in line for the throne, Lady Georgiana Rannoch may not be the most sophisticated young woman,

but she knows her table manners. It’s forks on the left, knives on the right–not in His Grace, the duke’s back.

Lady Georgie’s help has been enlisted to groom the duke’s newly discovered heir, fresh from the Outback of

Australia, for high society. Who knew it would be such a dangerous job?

 

Audible Audio Version will be out on August 6th–the same day as the hardcover, Nook and Kindle releases.
