Malice at the Palace
By Rhys Bowen
Not quite a British "cozy," this delightful mystery has enough suspense and threatening situations to be totally absorbing and yet the light touch in the writing makes it a fine if not too serious read. It is London, England, 1934, and an unimportant and down on her luck "Royal," Lady Georgiana Rannoch, (Queen Victoria was her grandmother) finds herself swept up into the inner circle of the royal family and the preparations for the upcoming wedding of Prince George, when she's asked to be a companion to the foreign and beautiful bride-to-be, Princess Marina of Greece.
Ghosts, an ancient palace, and several dead bodies keep the pace and interest going as Georgie shows the Princess highlights of London's society including an evening with Noel Coward.
Not for the reader who wants a creepy, chilling and gritty read, this tale is lots of fun, my dear.
