When Darcy runs off on another secret assignment, I am left to figure out how to travel to Italy sans maid and chaperone to help my dear friend Belinda, as she awaits the birth of her baby alone. An opportunity presents itself in a most unexpected way-my cousin the queen is in need of a spy to attend a house party in the Italian lake country. The Prince of Wales and the dreadful Mrs. Simpson have been invited, and Her Majesty is anxious to thwart a possible secret wedding. What luck! A chance to see Belinda and please the queen as I seek her permission to relinquish my claim to the throne so I can marry Darcy. Only that?s as far as my good fortune takes me. I soon discover that Mummy is attending the villa party and she has her own secret task for me. Then, Darcy shows up and tells me that the fate of a world on the brink of war could very well depend on what I overhear at dinner! I shouldn?t be all that surprised when one of my fellow guests is murdered and my Italian holiday becomes a nightmare . . . Praise for the Royal Spyness Mysteries

Yet another delightful entry in the Royal Spyness series. In this one Lady Georgiana is off to Italy, both on a mission from the Queen and to help out her friend Belinda. I really enjoyed the Italian setting. As always, I read these books for the characters, the setting and the humour. Georgie is a wonderful heroine. The mystery part was kind of mediocre. If you are looking for a taut, suspenseful, edgy thriller with lots of twists and turns, this is not the series for you. If you are looking for a fun, frothy Downton Abbey-esque series with really endearing characters and a fabulous, glamorous, 1930's setting,then this series is just lovely.
