A Royal Flush by Rhys Bowen

5981169I finally finished this book at the laundromat today. It was actually a pretty quick read, but I just never seem to have the time to sit down and read it.

It’s another edition of the saga of Lady Georgiana Rannoch, 34th in line for the throne and perpetually penniless. This part’s adventures are set in motion after Georgie decides to advertise herself as an escort in the paper, though she’s totally on the up and up. Scotland Yard capitalizes on this faux pas and whisks her back to Scotland, where someone seems to be trying to off the royals while they are vacationing at Balmoral. Additionally, Georgie makes the acquaintance of Ronnie Padgett, lady pilot and adventurer, who is trying to set a speed record.

The mystery is actually enthralling and I didn’t have an inkling about what was going on until the last 20 pages or so, which was quite nice. I’ll be taking a break from this series while I catch up on some other books, but I’ll be looking forward to the next one for sure!
