Publisher's Summary

The national best-selling author of Royal Blood whisks her heroine away to the French Riviera for fun-and danger.

Lady Georgiana Rannoch has once again been called into service by Her Majesty the Queen. This time she's sent to Nice on a secret assignment that's nothing to sneeze at: recover the Queen's stolen snuff box.

As much of an honor as it is to be trusted by Her Majesty, an even greater honor awaits Georgie in Nice - as Coco Chanel herself asks Georgie to model her latest fashion. But when a necklace belonging to the Queen is stolen on the catwalk, Georgie has to find two priceless items - and solve a murder. How's a girl to find any time to go to the casino?

What the Critics Say

“Katherine Kellgren's performance encompasses an astonishing range of personalities while remaining true to her impoverished sleuth's impeccable enunciation…Kellgren, undaunted by the burgeoning cast of characters, supplies plenty of distinctive accents and jaunty tones. The delighted listener wants the story to go on and on.” (Audiofile)

"Fans of Peter Lovesey''s hilarious books transforming the future Edward VII into an unlikely sleuth will relish Bowen''s whimsical fifth Royal Spyness mystery starring Lady Georgiana Rannoch, 34th in line to the British thrown (after 2010''s Royal Blood). Bowen successfully melds a whodunit with comedy as few contemporary writers can." (Publishers Weekly, starred review)

"The best part of this delicious series is the cast of characters (well known and otherwise), led, of course, by the level-headed and stiff- upper-lipped Georgiana, who tackles whatever is in front of her, be it murder or romance, with uncommon relish. A royal romp." (Booklist)

    "Lady Georgi At Her Naughtiest!"

    I absolutely loved the setting of Naughty in Nice, and though it was a perfect follow up to the dark castles, dungeons, and Dracula from book 5, Royal Blood (which I also LOVED). I've never really known much about the French Rivera, so all through this story I was looking up the cities, hotels, and reference points mentioned. I cant believe how spot on Rhyse Bowen was in capturing all the details. She described the scenes so well that the pictures I found online looked exactly like what I had been picturing.

    Aside from being obsessed with this era, I'm equally obsessed with this series, and thought I couldn't wait to start the next book. About an hour in to book 6, however, I realized I was still wonderfully hung over from my adventure in Nice, and decided to hold off so I could enjoy all the lingering effects of French men, high fashion, casino parties, and (sigh) Darcy O'Mara.

    Another extremely outstanding performance by Katherine Kellgren as well. She is hands down, one of THE BEST narrators ever, and we're so very lucky to have her as the voice of Her Royal Spyness series!

    "One of the best in the series so far!"

    Mystery, action, romance, and comedic relief in equal measures. Katherine Kellgren ' s narration also imparts such personality into each character, but especially Georgie. A definite joy!

    "Really fun book in this historical series"

    This book prompted me to look up photos of sporty, vintage cars from that era based on the fun description of riding in a car in Nice. These books are a fun glimpse into what life may have been like in that time period, and how different it would have been to be royal and yet also penniless, as so many other people were.

    Tiny spoiler below:
    I like the reason why the queen ends up paying for Georgie's trip to Nice, because we all know someone like her sister-in-law.

    "Great listen"

    Driving up and down the highway is more than tolerable as we listen to Bowen's pithy sagas.

    "enjoyed this one in the series"

    I lose some patience when a woman assumes stupid things without confronting and getting facts so I was a bit frustrated with this one but it was a generally enjoyable book. As always, the performance was perfection.

    "Really Wanted to Love This"

    Loved the location & most characters. Georgie needs to smarten up, & live more of her own life. How she can be so clever on one hand & yet so stupid most of the time? I start to like her & the story & then she does something stupid, & acts like a whiny teenager. It's unbearably annoying. Will try a later story and hope some age will improve her.

    What made the experience of listening to Naughty in Nice the most enjoyable?

    Great characters, voices, fun plot


    What does Katherine Kellgren bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She brings it to life. Her characters are true and their expressions are fun.
