Queen of Hearts (A Royal Spyness Mystery)
By  Rhys Bowen
Berkley
August 2015

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.
