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)

    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.

    Any additional comments?

    Book: 3 1/2 stars
    Not enough Darcy! It was a quick read and I wasn't super engaged, but it had a pleasant setting.

    Audiobook: 4 stars (Katherine Kellgren)
    The audiobook is better than the book, as usual, due to the stellar narrator, this time doing a number of French voices.

    Story
    "some positiveness for our Georgie."

    If you are a follower of this series, you know how bad Georgie has had it, with her sister-in-law, her finances, and even her ladies' maid

    In this story, however, she gets some positiveness in her life-she gets to live with her mother, she gets some better clothes, and she has female help in solving the mysteries in this story, and she gets admired by a man of her class-who is charming, rich, and respectable, a boost i'm sure to her self-esteem, but Georgie being Georgie, it does not change her.

    very enjoyable--thank you Rhys, and thank you audible :-)

    I don't usually rush out for all the "best sellers", but give each intriguing book/author a look. I have found many diamonds in the rough.

    Story
    "Jewels and Pools in France"

    This series is one of my favorites, it is always entertaining, humorous and creative. In this addition Georgiana is off to Nice with the hope of inter-mingling with the notorious, young, European jet setters. Her main adjective is to retrieve a snuff box that was taken from a gathering hosted by The Royals. It must be a clandestine operation because it would not be appropriate to implicate any of the attendees, however, the Queen is quite certain she knows who the culprit is.

    Georgiana's adventure takes her on quite a ride surrounded by the privileged and all the regular eclectic characters of the series. Her romantic life becomes highly tumultuous and as always the story is laugh out loud funny.

    These are wonderful, feel good cozy's that include historical incidents and characters that collide with Georgiana's erratic kookie life. Katherine Kellgren does a great job narrating and is the perfect voice for Georgiana.

    "Best Book Series EVER!!"

    I absolutely adore the royal spy Ness series. It keeps me enthralled from the first moment to the last. I still don't know how Kellegren can keep all the voices straight, but she surely makes the book come to life. Thank you both!!

    "Too short"

    You really don't want such a delicious story to end. I have throughly enjoyed this series. Enough violence and intrique to keep the plot moving but in no way graphic.

    Story
    "Wish there was some character growth..."

    This series is starting to suffer from a lack of character growth. Nothing changes for the main character. She is still in an odd, undefined relationship with Darcy, poor and unable to take care of herself. Her circumstances get neither better nor worse compared to book one. While the mystery aspect of the individual books remain entertaining, as a series it is starting to become dull and repetitive.
