Comments  Summary  Reviews  Author Notes

From Publishers' Weekly:

Set in London in 1930, this merry first in a new cozy series from Agatha-winner Bowen introduces a delightful heroine-Lady Victoria Georgiana Charlotte Eugenie. Thirty-fourth in line for the English throne, Georgie has been educated to curtsey, host lavish fetes and marry well. When her brother cuts off her pitiful allowance, Georgie leaves the family home in Scotland for London, determined to become a liberated woman. Lasting only a few hours as a saleswoman in Harrods, Georgie starts a maid service, but she turns detective after finding a drowned man in her bathtub. When her brother is accused of the murder, she must try to clear him and the family name. Quirky characters like her lovable grandfather; her estranged, oft-wed mother; and an incorrigible, sexy Irishman add to the fun. Georgie's madcap antics are certain to leave the reader eager for the next installment. Bowen is also the author of the Molly Murphy (In Dublin's Fair City, etc.) and the Constable Evans (Evanly Bodies, etc.) series. (July) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved

From Library Journal:

Bowen, author of the successful "Molly Murphy" and "Constable Evans" series, turns her attention to 1930s London and Lady Georgiana, great-granddaughter of Queen Victoria and 34th in line to the English throne. Despite their high-class breeding, the Rannoch family is quite broke, and Georgie must make ends meet in London with no money and no staff to take care of her needs. Then someone murders the odious Frenchman who had planned to seize the Rannochs' Scottish estate. Because Lady Georgiana asks questions to save her brother, who is the prime suspect, the killer's attention turns to her. Delightfully naive, charming, and quite smart, Georgie is a breath of fresh air. Don't miss this delightful cozy series launch. Bowen lives in Northern California.
