Publisher's Summary

A Royal Spyness mystery starring Lady Georgiana, 34th in line for the throne - and the mystery world's favorite penniless heiress.
With its posh clientele in the country for the summer, Georgie's housecleaning business has fizzled. So she tries hiring herself out as a dinner and theatre companion. But her first client has quite the wrong idea.
To avoid further scandal, Georgie's shipped home to Castle Rannoch, where her summer plans include honoring a promise to Her Majesty to keep Castle Rannoch's divorced houseguest from seducing the Prince of Wales. She's also been coerced into helping Scotland Yard with a top-secret mission - namely keeping an eye on the shooting party at Balmoral and preventing someone from shooting the Prince. And Georgie must manage all this without strangling her odious sister-in-law Fig or spineless brother Binky.

What the Critics Say

"Katherine Kellgren is completely winning as guileless, gullible, plucky Georgie. With the castle overrun by visitors - including the notorious American Mrs. Wallis Simpson; her paramour, the Prince of Wales; and an assortment of gentry and staff - Kellgren shifts accents and attitudes with ease. Phryne Fisher fans will love Kellgren’s Lady Georgiana." (AudioFile)

not as good as the first ones

I still love the character and the narration, but the aviation parts (and character) were reaching, I thought. I hope the next in the series is better, or I'll probably stop - which would be a shame.

Worth a credit

Would you listen to Royal Flush again? Why?

Yes, I would. I just a real FUN listen and the characters are well developed. I have to say, sometimes all the books in the series are a bit predictable, but as I said, it's not a "deep listen", rather than a fun listen.


What other book might you compare Royal Flush to and why?

I have only read this genre from Rhys Bowen, so cannot really compare.


What about Katherine Kellgren’s performance did you like?

Great skill, variety of true sounding accents, sometimes she does get a bit to carry away and gets very loud.


If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Royalty and Mischief


Any additional comments?

Just get the series. If you are looking for superb English, and deep and meaty books, than this is not the one. But this is a lighthearted, fresh read. Highly recommend it.
