Mysterious Saturday Review: Royal Flush

Lady Georgiana, 34th in line to the throne, still in need to money, decides to provide men with dinner and theater companions - ladies from well bred families, namely herself. As she provides an advertisement to the paper, she doesn't realize how her words will become twisted. After a dreadful night out and a heroic save by Darcy, her maybe boyfriend, she realizes the error of her ways.

She hopes that no one discovers this mistake, but she's not that lucky. Instead, she's sent home to Scotland. On the way there, Lady Georgiana bumps into a man from the Home Office who asks her to nose around the royal family. Apparently, there's been a number of accidents that may be deliberate. With the royal family on the Scotland estate, Lady Georgiana is in perfect position to pass information along the way.

When she arrives home, she realizes that her own brother's been involved in one of these incidents and there's a house party at the castle. A bunch of Americans have descended upon the house and Lady Georgiana's sister-in-law can't wait to get rid of them. With accidents hitting to close to home, Lady Georgiana is determined to uncover who might be behind these accidents. Could it be someone they count amongst friends?

My Thoughts: The third book in the Royal Spyness series is sharp witty series about a young royal with no money and a nose for trouble. I love reading about the class differences and the struggle to be normal, yet act in accordance with the royal rules.

Cover Thoughts: I adore it!
