I have just finished reading the book Royal Flush by Rhys Bowen. It is book three in A Royal Spyness Mystery Series. It is one of those series where you don’t have to read the books in order to still get drawn in. Once before I did that I bought a book without realizing it was like sixth in a series and I loved it and read more. I had a similar reaction when reading Royal Flush. It is a good novel and I may very well read the other books in the series if I can find them. The series follows Lady Georgiana who is 34th in line to the British Throne and she is penniless. It takes place in the 1930’s in London & Scotland.
Royal Flush Book Details: 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 divorcee 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.
