Agatha Award-winning author Rhys Bowen’s charming combination of intrigue and romance blended with a touch of humor shines when performed by Audible Hall of Fame narrator Katherine Kellgren, whose deft range and impeccable accent work make it hard to believe this isn’t a multicast performance.
In this irresistible cozy set in 1930s London, Rhys Bowen introduces the lively Lady Victoria Georgiana Charlotte Eugenie—or "Georgie" for short. Despite standing 34th in line for the throne and occasionally having tea with (…and spying for!) Her Majesty the Queen, Georgie is penniless and down-on-her-luck. And just when it seems things might be looking up, she finds a body in her bathtub.
Listeners are sure to be hooked on this royally enjoyable series—and luckily for them, the collaboration between author and narrator only gets richer over the course of 12 books.

I had fun reading Her Royal Spyness. Minor royals struggling financially, working at department store cosmetics counters to make ends meet, and crashing wedding receptions to eat a decent meal every once in awhile--Bowen makes these ideas work, and they make for humorous situations. I also enjoyed m...
I was already a fan of Rhys Bowen because of the other two series she writes but now I'm a fan because of this one too! I'd call this an updated version of a British cozy. It's fun, it's light, it's easy to read and the characters are very likeable. The heroine is a minor British royal who's incr...
