    5/15/11: *gasp* She's writing another one! Will Georgie finally be deflowered by Darcy?!?! I don't know how long I can wait to find out!!! :P9/22/11: Welp, looks like there's going to be another book in this series. For some reason, I have no doubt that we are to be strung along at least until Georgie and Darcy's relationship is, er... consummated. Of course, this consummation could take the form of marriage even; I don't know! Still, I'm not com...

    Rhys Bowen’s latest offering in her Royal Spyness series, Naughty in Nice, is pure fun. The French Riviera in 1933, Coco Chanel, Mrs. Simpson and the Duke of Windsor lurking on the sidelines, handsome scoundrels and clever thieves, gorgeous gowns and too much champagne, not to mention a dark, handsome lover and a clever if somewhat naïve young Lady Georgiana (cousin to Queen Mary) out to solve all the puzzles even if it puts her life in danger...

    This series officially counts as a guilty pleasure. I really look forward to another lighthearted romp through a 1920's/30's style murder and mayhem high-society style with Georgie and Co. This book whisks us away to Nice in the winter of 1933, at HRH Queen Mary's behest. (I won't say why it'll spoil the plot). We get a right dose of Fig before departing London and a view of the soup-lines and general conditions of the Depression. Seriously Fig n...

    The Royal Spyness series by Rhys Bowen features engaging, impoverished noblewoman Lady Georgiana Rannoch as heroine. In this installment, Georgie is ordered by her relative, the Queen, to recover a stolen snuffbox from Sir Toby Groper, a private collector currently residing in Nice. Excited for the change of scenery from dreary England, Georgie heads for the coast, meeting Coco Chanel along the way. And who other than Georgie’s own mother owns ...

    It's funny to read other reviewers admit that this is their guilty pleasure, because that's kind of how I feel. The stories in the series are just frothy and not particularly deep. Georgie isn't a an especially good detective, either; she barely manages to (literally) stumble unto the clues that help her solve the mysteries. Speaking of which, the clumsiness is getting a bit tiresome. I know that's a character trait of hers, but it's starting to ...
  • Matthew Hunter
    Better effort by Bowen here. The "when will Georgie lose her virginity" storyline continues, though somewhat muted compared to prior installments. A few characters other than Georgie and her grandfather come across as likable. I'm still at a loss as to why Georgie would consider Belinda her best friend. Fig still needs to fall off a cliff. Darcy's a romance novel cliche. But what's this? A smidge of likability from G's mom? Also, a very fun and c...

    3.5 Stars Many of you may not know this about me, but I read fluffy little mysteries as a guilty pleasure. I prefer British ones the best. It started when I discovered Agatha Christie in my early 20's, and though nothing compares I enjoy a quaint little who-done-it.As much as I enjoy these books, I sometimes get frustrated. I just want to scream: (view spoiler)[ "Put that bitchy Fig in her place, get your neglectful, philandering mother to contri...

    Naughty in Nice took Georgie’s character developments in a great new direction and highlighted the fact that she’s really made giant leaps since the beginning of the series. I always love it when characters progress. We also see some changes in her family circumstances and the formation of important new social connections for Georgie. However, “Wherefore art thou, Darcy?” was my first thought when I realized that Darcy was pretty much MIA...
  • Lauren
    One of my requirements when reading murder mysteries is that the protagonist can’t be too dumb to live. If I’m rolling my eyes because of a protagonist’s pointless stupidity, I’m getting pulled out of the story, and the whole reason I read murder mysteries is to get pulled into a story.In the fifth installment of Her Royal Spyness, our plucky heroine Georgie sadly crossed into eye-rolling territory.While Naughty in Nice has the most compl...
