Product Description:

Lady Georgiana Rannoch is off to solve a Hollywood homicide in the eighth mystery in the New York Times bestselling Royal Spyness series.

England, 1934. Georgie's mother, the glamorous and much-married actress, is hearing wedding bells once again—which is why she must hop across the pond for a quickie divorce in Reno. To offer her moral support, Georgie agrees to go along on the all expenses paid voyage across the Atlantic.

While her mother meets movie mogul Cy Goldman—who insists on casting her in his next picture—Georgie finds herself caught up in the secret investigation of a suspected jewel thief. Lucky for her, the lead investigator happens to be her dashing beau, Darcy!

Her mother's movie and Darcy’s larceny lead everyone to Cy’s Hollywood home, where the likes of Charlie Chaplin are hanging about and there’s enough romantic intrigue to fill a double feature. But they hardly get a chance to work out the sleeping arrangements before Cy turns up dead. As if there wasn’t enough drama already...



It sounded like a good idea at the time. Lady Georgiana “Georgie” Rannoch’s mother Claire Daniels wants Georgie to accompany her on an all-expenses paid trip to America. Once there, Claire intends on traveling to Reno, where she will obtain a divorce from her current husband Texas rancher so that she can marry her current paramour. However, Georgie’s hopes that the trip will offer her a vacation from playing detective are immediately dashed.

First a clever jewel thief strikes while Georgie is onboard the Berengaria. Things later escalate to murder when Georgia and her mother land in America and Hollywood movie mogul Cy Goldman, who planned on making Georgia’s mother the star of his latest picture, is killed at his palatial California estate. So is now back to work for Georgie if the killer is to be caught.

Readers who haven’t yet discovered Bowen’s superbly written “Royal Spyness” series are in for a real treat. The author’s bright and breezy writing style perfectly complements the book’s expertly evoked 1930s setting. Historical figures such as Wallis Simpson and Charlie Chaplin artfully play cameo roles in the plot, and classic film fans will especially enjoy guessing which real life figures provided the inspiration for Goldman and his Hollywood coterie.

Generously seasoned with a deliciously dry sense of wit and imbued just the right dash of romance, Queen of Hearts is completely charming.
