In the days leading up to her wedding to Darcy O'Mara, Lady Georgiana Rannoch takes on the responsibilities of a grand estate, but proving she can run a household just may be the death of her in the new Royal Spyness Mystery from the New York Times bestselling author of On Her Majesty's Frightfully Secret Service .

If only Darcy and I had eloped! What I thought would be a simple wedding has been transformed into a grand affair, thanks to the attendance of the queen, who has offered up the princesses as bridesmaids. Silly me! I thought that withdrawing from the royal line of succession would simplify my life. But before Darcy and I tie the knot in front of queen and country, we have to find a place to live as man and wife...

House hunting turns out to be a pretty grim affair. Just as we start to lose hope, my globetrotting godfather offers us his fully staffed country estate. Mistress of Eynsleigh I shall be! With Darcy off in parts unknown, I head to Eynsleigh alone, only to have my hopes dashed. The grounds are in disarray and the small staff is suspiciously incompetent. Not to mention the gas tap leak in my bedroom, which I can only imagine was an attempt on my life. Something rotten is afoot--and bringing the place up to snuff may put me six feet under before I even get a chance to walk down the aisle...
Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "Bestseller Bowen's disappointing 12th Royal Spyness mystery (after 2017's On Her Majesty's Frightfully Secret Service) lacks her usual charm. Lady Georgiana Rannoch, a distant-and impoverished-relative of the British royal family, is a month away from her July 1935 wedding to Darcy O'Mara. As she juggles logistical details, including the guest list and her attire, not to mention her insecurities about Darcy's faithfulness, her godfather, Sir Hubert Anstruther, offers her a welcome gift: his Sussex country estate, Eynsleigh, as her home. But on arrival at Eynsleigh, she finds a surly staff, neglected grounds, and indications that the household accounts have been faked. While she manages to adopt the persona of a forceful lady of the manor, her efforts to whip things into shape are impeded by her suspicions that the previous butler's fatal fall down the stairs was no accident-and that her own life is in peril. The mystery element predominates, and fans will miss Georgie's hilariously inept maid, Queenie, who's offstage for the first half of the book. Agent: Meg Ruley, Jane Rotrosen Agency.
