As the granddaughter of Queen Victoria’s least noteworthy daughter, Georgiana is thirty-forth in line to the throne and has all the expensive responsibilities of royalty, like having the proper wardrobe for official functions, but none of the money and being royal she’s not supposed to work. While r...

Oh, I really wanted to like Her Royal Spyness. It was a fairly decent mystery. I liked the premise, and the author did a reasonably good job of setting up those red herrings. But, did I know who did it and why before the denouement? Yes. The author didn't really give me any clues that lead me t...

Think of Bridget Jones, with a Royal Title, in Edwardian England and you'll have Lady Georgiana. Very light, funny and quirky mystery. Looking forward to reading the rest of these mysteries!http://stitchingmystressaway.com/blog/?p=780

Lady Victoria Georgiana Charlotte Eugenie grew up in a castle, always knows what fork to use, and could marry a prince if she'd only say "yes."Of course, the castle is drafty, the silver forks lift nothing better than baked beans, and the prince has no throne and no sex appeal. From the very first ...

It's the 1930s and just about everyone's having money problems, including Lady Victoria Georgiana Charlotte Eugenie (aka Georgie). When she overhears her brother and his wife discussing marrying her off to a cold fish of a man, Georgie decides to take a trip to London (Georgie lives in dreary Scotla...
