S she can produce And I find her narrative voice pleasant and soothing which makes a cozy mystery like this great end of ay listening Like many series that become popular and The Pursuit of Mary Bennet demand a new book every year the Royal Spyness stories are getting a little sloppy While it was a great relief to have a lot less ueenie and less of Georgie s casually cruel comments to her there is an awful lot of exposition repetition tiresome hand wringing and just general wheel spinning in this story Very little happens and the one small moment of potentialanger is oddly minor and greatly overblown There are some sweet new characters and the change of scenery is a pleasure so Scandals and Secrets (Hearts Of Fire, definitely a pleasant way to spend half an hour or so before bed But Io hope the next book will be better plotted and tightly written I found myself getting very impatient the fifth time somebody reiterated the same specious reason why the obvious culprit couldn t have Shooting for a Century done it This will be my last read of the Royal Spyness series Just give up What used to be fun light reading about a usually engaging heroine has simply turned into silly Georgieoesn t act like a woman growing in independence and intelligence and Darcy is a stock figure I was groaning I, Partridge during the first chapter and skimmed the rest of the book till the finally end I realize Rhys Bowen will continue to churn out edition after edition because of her fan base Next installmentue out in a few months By the time Georgie matures or finds an interesting way to react to her life if ever I will not be reading or caring I truly love this series It is one of the very few that I would buy in hardcover because I couldn t wait until the paperback came out But to tell the truth it s gotten a bit long in the tooth There isn t much sleuthing mostly running around from one scene to the next because that s what books Shadow of the Templar do Itidn t feel well plotted And through much of it things were blindingly obvious that the characters acted oblivious to In the end there were a couple interesting plot twists but too many strings were too conveniently tied up I wouldn t be surprised if this is the last But maybe not If there are installments I will happily snap them up I hope the uality returns to it s previously high standard I have been a fan of Rhys Bowen s books for a couple of years and I always look forward to new releases All of her books are lovely but I must admit that her Royal Spyness series is my favorite If you re not familiar with this series here s a brief explanation the books take place in1930s England and Georgiana Rannoch is 35th in line for the throne She is an astute young woman and she ofte.
