1930s London. Poor Lady Georgiana-thirty-fourth in line to the throne-has nothing to serve her Bavarian princess houseguest, even though the Queen of England has requested that she entertain her. Then there's the matter of the body in the bookshop and the princess's unwitting involvement with the Communist party. It's enough to drive a girl mad.

This is the 2nd book in the series-loved it! Very creative & informative about the "Royals". I like that Georgie is from both sides "of the tracks" with her cousin the queen & her grandad a former Bobbie!

Great story! This is the second book in the Her Royal Spyness series that I have read and it is still delightful! Georgie goes on more on an adventure this time with her side-kick, Hanni. There is more sleuthing going on and her Granddad is involved more, which I like. While fast paced, the story develops nicely. Good twists in the book as well. Definitely a 5 star for a period mystery!

Lady Victoria Georgiana Charlotte Eugenie of Glen Garry and Rannoch (Georgie for short) may be thirty-fourth in line for the British throne, but England is still in a depression following the Great War and she’s still stone broke.
Learning to fend for herself is a new experience, but as Georgie learns to do without, she also learns to do for others – she hires herself out as a maid. Her cousin, Queen Mary, has no idea that Georgie must now work for a living (she would not be amused) and gives her a different kind of task – playing chaperone for a visiting princess of Bavaria in hopes that the young royal will lure her son, the Prince of Wales, away from that dreadful American woman, Mrs. Simpson.
However, the lively young princess is a Royal Handful, and her unbridled enthusiasm soon lands both ladies in a pot of hot water when they are accidentally linked to a murder, then to the Communist Party and then to more murders - not to mention getting in between Georgie and the dashing Darcy O’Mara...
