    Georgie and her adventures continue to be an absolute delight. Bowen’s terrific series is filled with laughter, capers, and an entire cast of unforgettable characters; and the latest installment, FOUR FUNERALS AND MAYBE A WEDDING, is certain to please new readers and long-time fans of the series alike. The road to matrimony may not run smoothly for Georgie and her darling Darcy, but readers are most definitely in for a rip-roaring good time.

    Delightful mystery. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~I have heard of this author prior to reading this book. But what I didn’t realize, or it just didn't sink in, was that this book is a part of a series. However, I didn’t let that stop me. I think most author's are pretty good and giving us glimpses of past stories so we can catch up.The beginning was a bit slow as I was starting to learn the characters and get comfortable with storyline. I really wasn’t sur...

    This was my first time reading a book in the Her Royal Spyness series and I enjoyed it so much I might have to go check out the previous books. Despite me jumping in to the 12th book in the series, I never felt lost as the author did a good job with giving background info of the main characters. This was just a really cute and fun book that takes place in 1930s England. I loved the historical fiction aspect of the book as members of the royal fam...

    Georgie always seems to draw the short end of the stick in life and manages to get herself in the worst predicaments- (It wouldn't be Georgie if she didn't) but it was nice to see that things are finally looking up for her!! : ) *I received this ARC from First to Read in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!

    Funtastic read. A proper, historical, British murder mystery and all the tea to back it up...I received this ARC copy of Four Funerals and Maybe a Wedding from Berkley. This is my honest and voluntary review. Four Funerals and Maybe a Wedding is set for publication August 7, 2018.

    Hang with me here: With a fast-approaching release date, this book was next up on my list of advance review copies from the publisher (via NetGalley) and I really needed to get it done. Problem was, one of my top 5 favorite New York Times best-selling mystery/thriller authors had a just-out book that was screaming my name. Oh well, I said - this one's not a 500-pager; I'll hurry through it and get on to the one I really want to read. Well, hurry ...

    A delight and a must read! Four Funerals and Maybe a Wedding from author Rhys Bowen is a spectacular read. I have loved this series since book one and they truly just blow my mind with each new book. This one is well thought out and full of twists and turns as well as that perfect cozy happy ending. Main Character Lady Georgiana is very easy to relate too, very much the unsuspecting sleuth, and all around amazing lady. In this book she is about t...

    Rhys Bowen does it again! Brimming with wit, charm, rich historical detail, a lovable cast of characters, and a great mystery set at an atmospheric English estate, the latest installment in this beloved Royal Spyness series is simply delightful. Lady Georgiana Rannoch is firmly cemented as one of the great fictional sleuths of our time. This is historical mystery at its finest!

    3.5 starsGeorgie is back, this time planning her wedding as both her mother and grandfather are planning theirs. She’s dealing with wedding dress drama, her royal relatives inviting themselves, and Darcy’s (usual) absence when she receives a welcome invitation from Sir Hubert, one of her mother’s ex-husbands. Sir Hubert always had been fond of Georgie, and in fact had made her his heir, and he invites her to take residence permanently on hi...

    Another great episode in the saga of Lady Georgiana Rannoch, featuring all of the players you have grown to love. I liked this because it seems that things are beginning to improve for Georgie - she is taking charge and handling things, and being the heiress to Sir Hubert means that she finally has a home! I really hated seeing her drift about with no security, and relying on the random charity of those around her. *eARC Netgalley**

    First line: I was standing at my window on the top floor of Princess Zamanska’s lovely Georgian house on Eaton Square (which, in case you don’t know, is one of the poshest addresses in London).Summary: Lady Georgiana Rannoch is something like 35th in line for the throne of England, and while she may be nobility, she is flat broke, engaged to be married to Darcy O’Mara (finally!!) and often finds herself tangled in mysteries that may or may ...

    Georgianna and Darcy are engaged, him being catholic and her protestant causes so issues. I thought this might be a typical sweet cozy mystery but it's not. The couple have no idea where they are going to live after the wedding. Georgianna being the granddaughter of Victoria the Queen is cousin to the Royal family. The Queen offers a castle for the honeymoon but along the way she is sent a letter from her mom's ex husband who has named her his he...

    It was wonderful to be back with this cast of characters again.While waiting for the wedding day, Darcy is off on assignment (again) and Georgie is at the estate she will one day inherit, setting up house.What she finds is totally unexpected and unacceptable. The staff are not acting professionally and appear to be slotted into the wrong jobs, as the cook can't cook and the maid does not maid. That the butler has such a glowing recommendation is ...

    This is one of my favorites in this series lately. All of my favorite characters were represented in this story. I always get a lot of laughs when reading this series. I love this series and did not want to put it down. I hope there will be many more in the Royal Spyness series. I received a copy of this book from Firsttoread for a fair and honest opinion that I gave of my own free will.

    A bit slow in developing, but interesting and with as many twist and turns as readers of this series have come to expect.

    Being a huge fan of the "Her Royal Spyness" serious, I was thrilled to be given an advanced reading copy of this book, and it is my pleasure to post this review.Lady Georgiana Rannoch is Rhys Bowen's sleuth in this series. Georgy is 34th in line to the English throne, great granddaughter of Queen Victoria. That sounds impressive, I know, but in reality Georgy is strapped for cash, but at the same time, is expected to act and dress as the Lady tha...

    It gave me a little thrill to see the very first page of the book was the official invitation to the wedding of Georgie and Darcy – is it truly happening this time??Georgie and Darcy need a place to live in town after they marry and become dismayed at how little their money can get them in London. Fortune smiles upon them when Georgie hears from her former stepfather offering his house and she heads off alone to get it ready for post wedding ha...

    Thanks firsttoread for a ARC copy to read and review. Georgie is staying at the Polish princess Zou Zou's place in London fretting over getting better clothes for her trousseau for her wedding. There is a huge cast of characters, and I'm just assuming they are people she has helped in the previous books. Georgie has just renounced her line of succession for the throne in order to marry her beloved commoner Darcy. She is 35th in line...or was. One...

There is also the problem of where to live after the wedding.A solution comes from Georgiana’s godfather. He has made her his heir and...

    There is something enormously appealing about the Royal Spyness series. Main character and very minor royal Lady Georgiana Rannoch is a unique heroine -- smart, innocent, stubborn and resourceful. In this latest adventure, Georgie and her delectable Darcy are finally tying the knot. Wedding plans and complications add to the action as Georgie pre-inherits a house and sets out to get it ready for her and Darcy to move into after the wedding.But so...

    I received an Advanced Reading Copy from NetGalley.Maybe it's because I'm used to listening to the audio version, narrated by the wonderful Katherine Kellgren (RIP) as opposed to reading, I found Four Funerals and Maybe a Wedding a bit lackluster in writing. It took a very long time for me to get invested in the plot, although once I did, it was hard to put down.Four Funerals and Maybe a Wedding finds Georgie and Darcy looking for an apartment on...

    While Lady Georgiana plans for her wedding, she receives word that she is to take up residence at a grand estate. But when she gets there, the servants she remembers have all gone and the ones left are surprised by her appearance and don’t seem to know all that much about their jobs. In typical Georgiana fashion, she sets about trying to make things right. I jumped into this series part way through and have been slowly going back to read earlie...

    I received an ARC of this book thru Goodreads.I really enjoy this series overall, but I just couldn't get into this one as much as I did the others. I did listen to the previous 11 books as audiobook, so perhaps not having the amazing Katherine Kellgren (who has sadly passed away) bring the story to life had some impact on my enjoyment. But I also just found Georgie's "lady of the manor" attitude grating. There has always been class disparity in ...
