More About the Author

Although I now live in California, I'm a transplanted Brit--born in Bath, but my mother's family comes from Wales. Hence my first mystery series featured a Welsh police constable (the Constable Evans Mysteries of which there are 10). I've been a writer all my life but finally decided to write what I like to read--mystery novels with a great sense of time and place.
I currently write two series: The Molly Murphy mysteries set in 1900s New York City, featuring an Irish immigrant woman, and the lighter Royal Spyness Mysteries about a minor royal in 1930s England. She's Lady Georgiana, 34th in line to the throne, but completely penniless. These have been described by Booklist as "a smashing romp."
My books have been nominated for every major mystery award in the US and I have won 9 including Agatha, Anthony and MacAvity awards.

My Royal Spyness books ring true because I married into a family that once owned stately homes and has cousins with funny nicknames. So many good anecdotes there! The Royal Spyness books currently have a movie option and I'm hoping they will become more available in Britain.

When I'm not writing I love to travel, hike, sing, play my Celtic harp and generally enjoy lie.

Beware 11 July 2014
By InfoBabe - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Beware. This is her first three Spyness novels combined. I thought it was a new book and received the ones I have already read. I don't think that is very clear in the description, though I couldn't understand why it was available in only paperback. My library doesn't carry it and now I know why.

Wodehouse meets Sayers 19 Mar 2014
By Bran - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Loved these three fast-paced historical mysteries. Sheltered minor royal Georgie Rannoch is tossed out into the bitter reality of the depression. Lacking any talent besides pluck she finds herself being one of Queen Mary's unpaid informants. Mystery and murder ensue, but Georgie manages to come out unscathed with the help of a dashing Irishman and her party-girl best friend. The historical details are delicious and I particularly loved the glimpses of the Prince of Wales and the notorious Mrs. Simpson. Can we say catty?
Youch!

Love love love her books 10 Mar 2014
By skyscape - Published on Amazon.com

This is a series I love, and one that I can read again and again. These are the first three stories, introducing you to Georgie and her world. Funny, direct and sometimes poignant, they are a wonderful escape.

Implausible But Fun 31 Aug 2014
By John D. Cofield - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Lady Georgiana Rannoch is a great-granddaughter of Queen Victoria. Her ducal father produced her after a second marriage to a beautiful but very common show-girl, and as a result Georgie, as she is known to all, is from both sides of the tracks. In the spring and summer of 1932, when the three novels in this collection are set, she is 21, tired of living on sufferance with her half-brother and sister-in-law in a drafty Scottish castle, and flat broke thanks to the Great Depression. Desperate for adventure, she takes the train south to London.

Once she is established in the family mansion in Berkeley Square Georgie begins to find plenty of excitement. She is pressed into service by King George V and Queen Mary to help them keep an eye on the Prince of Wales and his American "friend" Wallis Simpson. She discovers a body in her bathtub, then runs across several other bodies, gets involved in some international espionage, helps her brother when he is charged with murder, meets some unseemly sorts, and falls in love. She's given help by a wide variety of people, most notably her friend Lady Belinda and her maternal grandfather, a retired policeman who lives in a small house in Essex.

Georgie's adventures are a lot of fun, so much so that her creator Rhys Bowen can be forgiven for a number of missteps that will be noticed by anyone who knows much about the Royal Family in 1932: Georgie would be much farther down the Line of Succession than #34, for example, while the Prince of Wales' love affair with Wallis Simpson didn't really get hot until about 1934. And it's "Tatler," not "The Tattler!"

But none of that really matters. If you are looking for some pleasant mysteries to while away an amusing few hours, then this collection is definitely for you.

By Linda C. Dines - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I thought it was a new novel and found out it is a volume of 3 previously read stories, so in that I was deeply disappointed, I do not remember reading any reference to the fact is was 3 in one and not a new story.
