Our first in the feature is the latest in Rhys Bowen's Royal Spyness Mystery series featuring the indomitable Lady Georgiana Rannoch. Despite being a few heartbeats away from inheriting the British throne, Georgiana doesn't have two pounds to rub together. Out but not down, she decides to become a maid for the families that she rubs shoulders with at fancy high society parties.
Domestic by day, she's a servant for king and country during the night. Her relative, the Queen, uses Lady Georgie's connections for a spot of high class spying and mystery solving.
