This is the second or third I've read in this series and I think it's becoming my first or second favorite cozy mystery series! (Competing with Jill Churchill's Grace and Favor series). It's actually making me want to give her Molly Murphys another try---I didn't enjoy the first one I read, but this doesn't even sound like the same author. Only a few parts bugged me---mostly raunchy comments from Darcy, which I believe were meant to cast doubt upon his character. All in all, I think I'll continue reading this series for now. ( )

Nancy Drew set in the world of Bridgerton (if Bridgerton was set in London in the time between the world wars.) So a lot of royal and nouveau riche socialites partying and gambling and trying to bed each other (this is not an R rated book though)...and I didnt get the first dead body until I was about a third of the book in....which was a shame. The 'detective' aspect of the book was kind of meh and easily guessable...and, honestly, not a lot of detecting was done!

Having said all that....i kind of enjoyed reading/listening to this book ^_^ These are not your stereotypical 'bimbo' heroines in spite of the limitations imposed on them by the times (the men are a different matter all together). This might be the equivalent of a guilty pleasure for the detective mystery genre (ironic, considering the genre itself is thought of in some circles as nothing more than a guilty pleasure itself).

our de Fleece! Must listen to all the audiobooks while spinning all the yarn.

I had picked this up during an audible sale earlier this year and I decided it would be perfect for some mindless listening while spinning. And it was. This was - well, I hate to use the word "charming" but it was. I loved the main character. It was a bit light on the mystery side of things, but I enjoyed it immensely despite that. The narrator did a smashing job, and I think most of my enjoyment of this was because of her. The plot itself was a bit on the weak side, but I had so much fun I didn't really mind.

I'll definitely be continuing on with this series. ( )

Lady Georgiana Charlotte Eugenie of Glen Garry and Rannoch is 21 years old, unmarried, and living with her half-brother's family in a very drafty castle in Scotland. She is 34th in line for the throne since Queen Victoria was her great-grandmother. When she hears that the current queen wants to marry her to an European prince, she moves to London to stay in the family home (Rannoch House) there. Since her father gambled away the family fortune, she has no servants and tries to find a way to support herself without having to marry an undesirable royal. She meets a former classmate, Belinda, an aspiring fashion designer. Enter Gaston de Mauxville, an unscrupulous gambler, who arrives at Rannoch House to show her brother Binky, the deed to the castle that he says was gambled away to him by their father. De Mauxville is murdered in the Rannoch House bathtub. Lady Georgiana begins her investigation to clear her half-brother. ( )

Really fun read with lots of interesting characters! I loved the setting, the writing style, and the premise. Lots of layers, no one is who you think they are. One thing that was a little weird is the pressure to 'rid herself of the burden of her virginity' which I suppose is meant to be a feminist thing but it fell flat. More on that in the spoiler section.

I totally called the ending as soon as Trisram showed up after the murder and assumed it was because Georgie was set to inherit instead of him (so pretty damn close!) but it was still fun to see if I was actually right or not.

There's no actual sex in the book, though it is mentioned explicitly. I'd say it's fine for a high schooler but the concept of a friend placing a bet with a man to 'lay her within a week' is kind of creepy. Even so it's actually cleaner than a lot of New Adult/older YA.
