Crowned and Dangerous
Crowned and Dangerous | Rhys Bowen
22 posts | 34 read | 18 to read
Nothing is simple when you re thirty-fifth in line for the British crown, least of all marriage. But with love on their side, and plans to elope, Lady Georgiana Rannoch and her beau Darcy O Mara hope to bypass a few royal rules... With Darcy driving me out of London in a borrowed motor car, I soon discover that he isn t planning to introduce me to the pleasures of sinning in secret as I had hoped but to make me his wife! Of course, there are some quibbles to be dealt with, such as my needing special permission from the King to marry a Roman Catholic and the question of where we might live after the honeymoon. Though he will inherit a title, Darcy is as broke as I am. Even his family s Irish castle has been sold to a rich American who now employes Darcy s father as a hired hand. Throwing these cares to the wind, nothing could deter us from our mission except perhaps the news that my future father-in-law has just been arrested. It seems the rich American was murdered and Darcy s father had more than enough motive to do the deed. With the elopement postponed, we head for Ireland where he insists he s innocent, and it s up to us to prove it for better or worse."

Not my favourite of the series - I thought the culprit was pretty obvious - but still too much fun to just get a so so. And some movement on the running plot lines too I think.

This next book in the Her Royal Spyness series finds Georgie trekking to Ireland to be with Darcy, when his estranged father is accused of murder. We are treated to some new eccentric characters and Queenie is actually quite endearing in this one. I only have two left before I‘m done with the series! 😩 4⭐️

I read this book as research for my #LetsGetCozy book exchange... to make sure I was happy with my idea for @Erika13137

In a twist of fate, I received books # 1, 2 and 3 of this series in my cozy gift from @Phancatherine

So, we're sharing our love of Georgie all around. Great minds think alike, they say 😉

Erika13137 That's so neat! Great minds indeed 😁 (edited) 2y

A great series; it breaks up the heavy reading series and the chaos of starting the school year!

Every year I wait (im)patiently for the newest Georgie book, and she has yet to disappoint. In this latest adventure, Darcy's father is accused of murder and Georgie and the usual wonderfully quirky cast of characters come to his aid, trying to prove his innocence. I chuckled, smiled, and just enjoyed the hell out of this book- actually I feel that way about all her books! She's a fave author for me, and I can't wait to see what G gets up to next!

As usual, Georgie Rannoch provides a breezy historical read. A nice light book along the same lines as the rest of the series.

Bookbeez I love this series. It's so much fun. 3y
LauraBrook Just brewing some coffee now so I can sit down and start this book! Can't wait! 3y
Suzze My sister just finished it a few minutes ago and liked it a lot. I haven't started this series yet, and I'm halfway through Molly. I had dinner with Rhys last time she was in town. I've been in an Internet group of about 50 women mystery writers and readers with her for about 15 years. 3y
GardenJess Read the first one a few months back. Need to get back I this series. 3y

I've been waiting for this for a year! I adore the Royal Spyness books, and can't get enough of Katherine Kellgren as the narrator. Such joy 😊
