6 posts | 4 read | 2 to read
Sheer entertainment Bennett infuses wit and an arch sensibility into her prose This is not mere froth, it is pure confection. New York Times Book Review on The Windsor Knot Amateur detective Queen Elizabeth II is back in this hugely entertaining follow-up to the bestseller The Windsor Knot, in which Her Majesty must determine how a missing painting is connected to the shocking death of a staff member inside Buckingham Palace. At Buckingham Palace, the autumn of 2016 presages uncertain times. The Queen must deal with the fallout from the Brexit referendum, a new female prime minister, and a tumultuous election in the United Statesyet these prove to be the least of her worries when a staff member is found dead beside the palace swimming pool. Is it truly the result of a tragic accident, as the police think, or is something more sinister going on? Meanwhile, her assistant private secretary, Rozie Oshodi, is on the trail of a favorite painting that once hung outside the Queens bedroom and appears to have been misappropriated by the Royal Navy. And a series of disturbing anonymous letters have begun circulating in the palace. The Queens courtiers think they have it all under control, but Her Majesty is not so sure. After all, though the staff and public may not be aware, she is the keenest sleuth among them. Sometimes, it takes a Queens eye to see connections where no one else can.

I just love the whole concept of this series so much. Rozie is a fun amateur sleuth, and the "insight" into the Queen's mind is pure wish-fulfillment gold. #murdermystery

This has been my nighttime book, but I had less than an hour left, so between my walk and some work listening, I finished it. I love these books where Queen Elizabeth II and her assistant, Rozie, solve mysteries. This one involves a piece of art that was stolen from Buckingham Palace. It was an interesting story. Rozie and the Queen are both great characters. The mention of political events going on outside the palace was a nice touch. #audiowalk

KathyWheeler This is my evening book right now, and I‘m enjoying it. (edited) 2mo
mcctrish @KathyWheeler it‘s written so well, I almost believe the Queen is in cahoots with the author 2mo
KathyWheeler @mcctrish ❤️. Wouldn‘t that be fun! 2mo

Started this last night. I‘ve been saving it and figured since The Guardian announced The Queen‘s Jubilee Book List ( which has made my TBR explode) now was the time. Here‘s a link https://www.theguardian.com/books/2022/apr/18/the-god-of-small-things-to-shuggie.... #thebigjubileereadinglist

KristiAhlers Thanks for sharing the link I‘ve made a list myself! I love reading challenges that shove me out of my comfort zone. 2mo
mcctrish @KristiAhlers I‘ve read 17 on the list and I‘m going to try and add at least one from each decade this year ( I know I will lose focus when I see shiny new books come out 😆) 2mo
KristiAhlers @mcctrish oh that‘s an excellent idea! I can roll this reading challenge over to upcoming years! I‘ve already read several. Just printed out the list so I haven‘t gone through and marked what I read yet. Any excuse to buy a new book 🤣 yeah I‘m an unapologetic book junky. 2mo
mcctrish @KristiAhlers printing out the list is a great idea 💡 2mo
