Rhys Bowen ~~ 1/2 and 5 Star Reviews
Berkley Prime Crime
Lady Georgiana Rannoch was living with her brother, the Duke of Rannoch, and his family when they left to travel to the Riviera leaving Georgiana behind, stranded without a place to stay. When Georgiana visited the Queen, a solution was presented. An antique snuffbox had been stolen, and Her Majesty wanted Georgiana to find the culprit.
Suspecting a particular gentleman, the Queen sent Georgiana to Nice to retrieve the priceless antique and to keep an eye on a certain married woman who seemed to have wiggled her way into the Prince of Wales' life.
A masterful blend of glamour and danger keeps the reader submerged in the compelling world of the French Riviera.
