Summary
Penniless and without servants, Lady Georgiana `Georgie` Rannoch, 34th in line to the British throne is summoned to tea with the Queen. The Queen describes her intent to introduce the Prince of Wales to the Princess of Bavaria, Maria Theresa Hannelore Wilhelmina Mathilda, Hanni, who would hopefully lure him away from Wallis Simpson. The Queen needs Georgie to chaperone the visiting young princess. Hanni is a handful, her mind on men, shopping and fun. Unfortunate deaths occur when Georgie and Hanni are present and Georgie does some dangerous sleuthing at the request of the Queen.
Critique
The second entry in the `Royal Spyness Mystery` series is a treat to read. The same quirky characters present in the first book are back in full force. Highly recommend.
