Book Review

Her Royal Spyness by Rhys Bowen
Synopsis: In 1932 a 21-year old debutante (Georgie) flees her brother's Scottish home when she hears that a party is going to be given in order to set her up with an undesireable Romanian prince. In London, where she has taken refuge, she has an adventure (that's right--singular, as in ONE), then discovers a dead body. She then goes on to try to figure out whodunnit.
Readability: Insultingly easy and as such, very hard to get in to. About 100 pages into the novel, the mystery finally starts. RED FLAG.
Predictability: To be honest, I didn't know whodunnit! To be fair, neither did Georgie...
Couldn't Put it Down Factor: I had no trouble putting it down.
Recommend it?: Not really, though it is a quick and easy read that takes you to a different city. Sometimes that's JUST what you need.
Overall Rating: Two stars. One for getting it published and the second for keeping me guessing til the end.

Believe it or not, I AM reading a book right now that I'm really enjoying. : ) Hopefully I'll write a nice review soon!

Somebody tell me if the link to the book works and what it tells you. It keeps signing me in automatically, so I can't tell.
