Malice at the Palace
Malice at the Palace | Rhys Bowen
15 posts | 29 read | 12 to read
From the"New York Times" betselling author of"Queen of Hearts"comes another mystery for "fans of P.G. Wodehouse looking for laughs mingled with some amateur sleuthing." ("Publishers Weekly")Lady Georgiana Rannoch won t deny that being thirty-fifth in line for the British throne has its advantages. Unfortunately, money isn t one of them. And sometimes making ends meet requires her to investigate a little royal wrongdoing. While my beau Darcy is off on a mysterious mission, I am once again caught between my high birth and empty purse. I am therefore relieved to receive a new assignment from the Queen especially one that includes lodging. The King s youngest son, George, is to wed Princess Marina of Greece, and I shall be her companion at the supposedly haunted Kensington Palace. My duties are simple: help Marina acclimate to English life, show her the best of London and, above all, dispel any rumors about George s libertine history. Perhaps that last bit isn t so simple. George is known for his many affairs with women as well as men including the great songwriter Noel Coward. But things truly get complicated when I search the Palace for a supposed ghost only to encounter an actual dead person: a society beauty said to have been one of Prince George s mistresses. Nothing spoils a royal wedding more than murder, and the Queen wants the whole matter hushed. But as the investigation unfolds and Darcy, as always, turns up in the most unlikely of places the investigation brings us precariously close to the prince himself."

I got a bit behind with my reviews so bear with me!

This is one of my faves in the series because of the bits about the real life people in this story, namely Prince George, Princess Marina, and the real life counterpart to the fictional murder victim in this story, Bobo Carrington. Makes me want to binge watch The Crown! 5⭐️

I enjoyed this much more than the last 2 in the series. Georgie is asked by Queen Mary to show Prince George‘s fiancé around London. Of course, someone gets murdered and Georgie gets roped into the investigation. I like the tidbits of real royal history thrown in at the end. 4⭐️

Book 9 finished! Fun to binge in the summer. What do you binge on, when and why? With this one I love the characters and lifestyle, time period. Just enough mystery to keep it interesting and different each time.

Pamwurtzler I binged on her last year - now just waiting for the next one! 4y
Sydsavvy @Pamwurtzler I hear it‘s coming in August!! And that she‘s still not yet married to Darcy! 😳😏🖤😎👏🏻. Good Lord❣️😂 4y
Pamwurtzler @Sydsavvy Good grief! I guess that is what the ‘maybe‘ is about. 4y
Sydsavvy Smart writer, lol. I love Darcy. Even though he‘s slippery as an eel. The audiobook narrator has the best voice for him. 4y

#spoiled by @CouronneDhiver for #letsgetcozy

I didn't sleep well last night because I was so excited to open my package. What a way to start the day. I feel like I stacked this book only a little while ago and I can't wait to dive in.

Thank you so much Danielle! Everything is so pretty and colour coordinated and you totally nailed it!

Thanks again @cobwebmoth for organizing this!

CouronneDhiver I'm SOOO happy that you like it!!!! I really had my fingers crossed that my pick would be suitable 🤞🏽 5y
Erika13137 @CouronneDhiver this was such a neat swap cause it's so hard to know what you'll receive. I'm totally psyched! Especially for the after eight in my new mug 😜 Thanks again! 💕 5y
mabell What a cool coloring book! 5y

I think I would have enjoyed this book more if I had started at the beginning of the series and had a chance to become invested in the main characters. I also happened to be reading a Secret Adversary, set in the same time period, and The Nanny ( when the David , Bertie etc are children) . Figured whodunnit very early on. I will definitely give the A Royal Spyness Mystery books another chance.

So I was wandering the aisles of the bookstore and #blameitonlitsy I recognized an author. The blurb claimed fans of Agatha Christie and PG Wodehouse would enjoy this book. Naturally I had to buy it 😀🐉📚#dinnerandabook

Excellent read. I love this whole series and this one was one of my favorites. The best ones are always the ones that involve some royal cousins.

I love this series…the characters continue to develop and progress. I'm hoping It continues to the start of WWII.

Is it life changing? No. Is it an enjoyable listen while cooking dinner and doing boring tasks at work? Most definitely. Lady Georgiana is back with her crazy lady's maid and living at the Aunt Heap. Another fun read/listen. A nice pick me up after Maisy Dobbs mystery (good, but serious).
