I'm so tired of series right now, so it's surprised me how very much I enjoyed this book. I really like Georgiana: she's naive, but not stupid, inexperienced, but no shocked. I get annoyed with Fig and Belinda, not to mention Georgiana's mother, but I find myself wrapped up trying to guess whodunit. Fun!

I should have read the books in this series first. It was a good read. I was lost on some of it, but that is my own fault. ( )

So fun, so French, and so Ooh La La! An jilted lover, a French Casanova, a famous French fashion designer and Georgie's family all along for the ride! (Not to mention that Darcy is seen playing on the beach with a child that looks JUST like him.)

Miss Bowen has done exceptionally well in her rendering of the Riviera jet set pre-World War II. The attitudes of the wealthy and the n'er do well are enchanting to read, with Georgiana caught up in it again! I do like the fact that her character is growing with each novel from a scared little mousy schoolgirl- yes, of course with a great deal of charm- into a woman ready to handle anything life throws at her - well, baby steps. Can't wait for the next, Miss Bowen. ( )

I really enjoy this series. Not so cliche as some of the many cozy mysteries. Worthy of reading further in the series.

This was a quick, easy & mostly entertaining read.

Lady Georgiana is 34th in line to the throne of George V. Her father Duke of Rannoch bankrupt the family & Georgie is now living off the goodness of her brother & begrudging non-royal snobbish sister-in-law.

Georgie finds herself in Nice at the behest of Queen Mary of Teck, looking to retrieve a stolen snuff box. In the mix is the Queen's stolen necklace, the murder of the crass self-made bounder, Coco Chanel, and an entourage of others.....

Although I do enjoy the series .... I'm tired of Georgie pandering to the nastiness of her sister-in-law.... It may show decorum, but in my mind it's a weakness..... Also, I'm not understanding the stupidity of Georgie's maid... It would seem that no one brought up in Scotland during that particular time could not know the difference in addressing the Peerage or have the proper manners of household help. ( )

Book description
The national bestselling author of Royal Blood whisks her heroine away to the French Riviera for fun-and danger.

Lady Georgiana Rannoch has once again been called into service by Her Majesty the Queen. This time she's sent to Nice on a secret assignment that's nothing to sneeze at-recover the Queen's stolen snuff box.

As much of an honor as it is to be trusted by Her Majesty, an even greater honor awaits Georgie in Nice-as Coco Chanel herself asks Georgie to model her latest fashion. But when a necklace belonging to the Queen is stolen on the catwalk, Georgie has to find two priceless items-and solve a murder. How's a girl to find any time to go to the casino?
