Overview
Lady Georgiana Rannoch knows nothing is simple when you re thirty-fifth in line for the British crown, but her upcoming marriage proves to be the ultimate complication in the tenth mystery in the New York Times bestselling Royal Spyness series.

As Lady Georgiana's beloved Darcy drives her out of London, she soon discovers that he isn t planning to introduce her to the pleasures of sinning in secret as she had hoped but to make her his wife
Of course, she'll need special permission from the king to marry a Roman Catholic. Though he will inherit a title, Darcy is as broke as Georgie. Even his family s Irish castle has been sold to a rich American who now employs his father.
Nothing will deter them from their mission except perhaps the news that Georgie's future father-in-law has just been arrested for murdering the rich American. With the elopement postponed, they head for Ireland, where the suspect insists he s innocent, and it s up to them to prove it for better or worse."

Set in late 1934, Bowen’s outstanding 10th Royal Spyness Mystery (after 2015’s Malice at the Palace) opens on the road to Gretna Green, Scotland, where distant heir to the British throne Lady Georgiana Rannoch and the Honorable Darcy O’Mara plan to elope. En route, Darcy learns that his father, Lord Kilhenny, is in custody for killing Timothy Roach, the wealthy American who bought Kilhenny Castle and the adjacent horse-racing stable. Lord Kilhenny argued with Roach, his fingerprints are on the murder weapon, and he drank too much on the evening in question to remember whether he’s guilty, so he’ll likely hang for the crime. To save Georgie from scandal, Darcy ends his engagement to her and returns home to County Kildare, Ireland. Bowen adds romance to this blend of Christie and Wodehouse for a stylish, head-scratcher of a whodunit. Colorful set pieces and larger-than-life characters enrich the clever plot, which enchants and satisfies while forwarding the series arc. Agent: Meg Ruley, Jane Rotrosen Agency. (Aug.)
