    • wordnerdy/2015/08I'm really starting to lose interest in this series. It's just the same, same, same, all over again--Georgie worrying about money, until a task and a place to stay falls into her lap. Georgie worrying about Darcy, until he wins her over again (I have hopes that things are finally going to progress, but god, it took long enough). Georgie complaining about her ridiculous maid. Georgie stumbling across a body and solving a murder. In this one, the queen asks her to show the prince' [...]

    • It’s always a pleasure spending a few days with Georgie, aka Lady Victoria Georgiana Charlotte Eugenie, one of Queen Victoria's many great-grandchildren and currently (that is in 1934) thirty-somethingth in line to the throne. Georgie is expected to act Royal, but she doesn’t exactly have the funds to pay for such a lifestyle, which in itself leads her into all sorts of scrapes and awkward situations, but she also seems to be a favorite of Queen Mary, who’s always giving her assignments--l [...]

    • Rhys Bowen has a gift with words, and the latest Royal Spyness book did not disappoint! In Malice at the Palace Georgie is once again given a task by the Queen; to watch over and help a visiting princess before her royal wedding to the Queen's youngest son, Prince George. However, when a woman who was previously connected to Prince George is found dead Georgie must find the killer before the murderer finds her!I'm going to start with the end; the end of this book marked a major turning point for [...]

    • 4.5 starsThis newest entry in the "Royal Spyness" series featuring Lady Georgiana "Georgie" Rannoch, 35th in line for the British throne, was delightful! A return to the roots, so to speak. Overall, the series has been hit and miss for me, especially with some of the later books. (Mostly I always enjoy, but at varying intensity levels). Maybe it was my mood right now, or just what I needed, but I really enjoyed reading about Georgie's exploits. She really is such fun! We get a little Queenie, Gr [...]

    • *4.5 stars I just love Georgie & the rest of the cast! Still my favorite cozy mystery series:) I can not wait for the next book after the cliffhanger!!!!!! I'm so excited to see what happens!

    • In this ninth book of the series Georgie has been asked by the Queen to help Princess Marina from Greece to acclimate to the British lifestyle. She's to be married to the King's youngest son, George. She'll need help getting ready for the wedding and the marriage. So, Georgie is off to stay at Kensington Palace. She's not there long before she finds the body of one of George's mistresses. Did the prince kill the woman or did someone bring the body there to implicate him and cause a scandal?I do [...]

    • As one of the lucky fans Rhys Bowen choose to receive an advance copy of her new book I was very excited. I loved this ninth book in the Royal Spyness Mystery series. I have read all of the books in the series and enjoyed them all. This new book was possibly the best in the series. As always the characters were well written and the mystery was strong. I did not find out who committed the murder until Georgie did. I was happy all of my favorite characters returned, and I loved the new characters [...]

    • One of my favorite guilty pleasures is this series. This book doesn't disappoint. I laughed and chuckled all the way through and wished I had a glass of champagne and a box on bonbons on hand while I read it. I loved reading the gossip on the Royal Family and loved the cliff hanger. I can't wait for the next one.

    • Comfort food. World: Wonderfully simple and immersive. It's London through the eyes of Georgie and she's a great guide. I like that this one is once again set in London and it felt like a back to basics setting for me which was actually quite refreshing. Story: It's comfort food. It's what you're expecting from this series and what you get is what you expect. The story is well paced, Georgie is charming, the dialog is fun and the mystery is simple. A good fun comforting read. Character: Georgie [...]

    • 3.5 stars. I liked Malice at the Palace far more than the two previous books, thank the stars. The return to England, Georgie's royal relatives and upper class friends was a welcome one - Georgie is back on familiar ground and more comfortable in her own skin, unlike the slightly OOC creature we were introduced to during her Hollywood travels in the last story. Having been with Georgie through the thick and thin (so to speak), nothing gives me more pleasure than to see her experience a little lu [...]

    • There is going to be a royal wedding, and the Queen has asked Georgie to help the bride-to-be acclimate to her new home in England. However, when Georgie discovers a body just outside the palace, she has to work to uncover the killer while everyone keeps the murder a secret to avoid a royal scandal.It’s always a treat to revisit Georgie, and this book is no exception. We are transported back to 1934 London and given a bit of history as the fictional plot is based on some real people and events [...]

    • I love all the historical elements of the story, the characters, and the ending (!), but had to deduct a star for the "resolution" of the case. It seemed out of place for this series.

    • Georgie Rannoch is back in London where she belongs. She has some money in her pocket from Mummy, who has gone back to Germany to marry Max and a place to stay at Belinda's Mews cottage. When Belinda returns unexpectedly, Georgie is out on her feet again. Luckily, her royal relatives come to the rescue. Prince George, the King's 4th son, is getting married to Princess Marina of Greece and Queen Mary wants Georgie to show the Princess around and shield her from any nasty gossip about George's har [...]

    • Wonderful! This book was her best yet in the Lady Georgie series. We have Lady Georgiana requested to be companion to the Princess Marina and help her get ready for her nuptials to Prince George. She is staying at Kensington Palace with Marina. There is a murder of course and Georgie's love, Darcy turns up to make things more exciting. The book is one you won't want to put down.

    • In this 9th installment of the “Her Royal Spyness” series, Georgie finds herself in her usual predicament – no money and nowhere to stay. Even though her brother is in London, his wife clearly does not want Georgie around. However, the Queen comes to her aid. The King and Queen’s youngest son, George, is getting married to a Greek princess. The Princess will be staying at Kensington Palace until the wedding, and Georgie has been asked to help her get acclimated to England. Almost immedia [...]

    • Another entertaining addition to a fun series.Georgie gets a new assignment from the Queen as the companion of the arriving Princess Marina who is to wed her cousin, Prince George. Georgie is supposed to show Marina around London and help her acclimate to her new surroundings before the wedding.At the same time she is supposed to keep her cousin's past exploits from reaching Marina's ears, a task that becomes a trifle difficult when one of George's known mistresses ends up dead near the palace a [...]

    • I read this series for pure pleasure. I like the setting (1930's England), the recurring characters, and the premise, which is that Georgiana Rannoch, now 35th in line for the throne, is a young, sweet, smart, sometimes naive, Lady who refused to marry any of the unsuitable European princes that were paraded in front of her as husbands. As a consequence, she scarcely scrapes by with an odd job here or and allowance there. It would embarrass the royal family if she took a job, so she does so secr [...]

    • Another winner and as usual, excellent on audiobook, read by Katherine Kellgren. The plot in this one is above the usual, based around the Royal marriage of Prince George (the Prince of Wales' younger brother) and Princess Marina of Greece. Georgie has been asked by the Queen to help Marina become acquainted with London before the wedding and show her around. Georgie gets to move into Kensington Palace (temporarily) and - as usual - finds a dead body! The body belongs to a socialite drug addict [...]

    • OK sort of. The murder itself was quite interesting, even though I guessed the murderer almost from the start. I also liked the Belinda twist.Unfortunately those promising storylines were drowned in too much same-old: Georgie being a doormat to her stupid maid Queenie, Georgie doubting Darcy, Georgie starting out in the morning, travelling the length and breadth of England (or so it seems) and arriving back in London in time for tea. Was public transport really that much better in the 30s?Then [...]

    • Being stuck in the quagmire of house selling and buying and moving, I needed something light and frothy to read, and Rhys Bowen's aristocratic amateur sleuth, impoverished Georgianna Rannoch (32nd in line for the British throne at the time of Queen Mary) always provides a refreshing, amusing story. This is the 9th in the series beginning with Her Royal Spyness, and Georgie is still poor, homeless and still trying to avoid living with her unwelcoming sister in law. The Queen (as she is wont to do [...]

    • I liked this installment quite a bit. Georgie actually figures out the mystery here instead of more or less stumbling across clues and she doesn't get rescued either. I liked both of those developments. There is also some hopeful movement in her relationship with Darcy. I have this feeling something will happen to stand between them and their happily ever after, but I hope not. Georgie has proven herself time after time to be brave, smart and capable. Even though it is the thirties, she should w [...]

    • I actually got to read a Royal Spyness story while in LONDON! It was amazing. But it was also sad because the story took place at Kensington Palace, which I didn't have a chance to see while I was there. Regardless, it was still fun to read this while in the country! Per usual, Georgie was tons of fun, and the mystery was tricky to solve until the end! I think this particular book of the series did a wonderful job with her interactions with Darcy, the main love interest. It was great to see them [...]

    • I can't put my finger on it, but this one felt a little mean spirited. Georgie is holding a fair amount of moral judgement against her more "free" friends. That said, the ending means I will certainly be reading the next one!

    • Ninth in the Her Royal Spyness historical mystery series and revolving around Lady Georgiana Rannoch in the London of 1934.My TakeI don't know if I'm becoming more aware of Georgie's character or if Bowen is becoming more overt with Georgie's impetuous decisions. I could have sworn that Georgie never used to jump to conclusions on small bits of evidence?? Admittedly, the evidence of that bathrobe would make my eyes roll, and I'd be quite determined to find out what the truth was. But drug runnin [...]

    • This series is such fun, and even though I keep reading them out of order, each one has its own charm. In this one Georgie (34th heir to the English throne) is once more looking for somewhere to stay in London (other than with her brother and his obnoxious wife), when the Queen assigns her to be a companion to Princess Marina, who will be marrying Prince George soon. For the two weeks before the wedding, Georgie will live at Kensington Palace with the princess, and escort her to parties and club [...]

    • Lady Georgiana has her usual financial problems, but the Queen has a new assignment for her--be a companion to Princess Marina, who will be marrying Prince George in a short time. The Greek-Danish princess is new to London and--fortunately--knows nothing about George's terrible reputation. Georgie has to keep her in ignorance, which becomes much harder when she finds one of George's former mistresses dead outside Kensington Palace, where the two titled women, along with other royals, are living [...]

    • In all fairness, this deserves 3.5. I listened to the audio, as usual, and Katherine Kellgren is a genius as always. The issue was that one ancillary character had a tic that was used multiple times in each scene she was present in and it became so tiresome that I went searching for a summary so I could move on to the next book. Fortunately, there was no such summary and I was forced to press on, and the last third of the book picked up considerably. It’s possible this issue was more intense [...]

    • Great read another cozy mystery with my favorite character Georgiana. With the Queen's request for Georgine to help with a princess that's going to marry into the family. Of course Georgine can't say no. But where ever she goes someone is killed. SMH but hey it won't be a cozy mystery without a death. And Georgiana is on the case. And can't forget Darcy her love interest that she's in love with. But with their money issues it's hard for them to have their alone time and to tie the knot. But how [...]

    • Another fun outing with Lady Georgiana Rannoch complete with all the requisite name-dropping and period details. To get the most out of this series, it is best to start at the beginning.
