Description
Rhys Bowen's new series set in 1930s London stars smart and spunky Lady Georgiana, who is thirty-fourth in line to the throne. She has a lot on her plate - but very little in her cupboards ...
Baked beans and boiled eggs. That's what my expected houseguest, Bavarian Princess Maria Theresa Hannelore Wilhelmina Mathilda, will have to eat if I don't get help posthaste. You see, the Queen of England has concocted a plan in which I am to entertain the princess, conveniently placing her in the playboy prince's path, in the hopes he might finally marry.
But there's one thing queens never take into account: money. Of which I have little, ever since my brother, Binky, cut off my allowance. And which is why I moonlight as a maid in disguise. (How am I to hire a maid when I am a maid?) So, like Her Royal Highness, I must draw up plans.
Oh, and then there's the rather more worrying matter of the body in the bookshop and Hanni's unwitting involvement with the communist party. I really don't want to be held responsible for single-handedly instigating another English-German war. It's enough to drive a girl potty.

display_descriptionThe Queen of England has concocted a plan in which Lady Georgie is to entertain a Bavarian princess and conveniently place her in the playboy Prince's path, in the hopes that he might finally marry. But queens never take money into account. Georgie has very little, which is why she moonlights as a maid-in-disguise. She must draw up plans: clean house to make it look like a palace; have Granddad and her neighbor pretend to be the domestic staff; un-teach Princess Hanni the English she's culled from American gangster movies; cure said Princess of her embarrassing shoplifting habit; and keep an eye on her at parties. Then there's the worrying matter of the body in the bookshop and Hanni's unwitting involvement with the Communist Party.
