Oh my gosh @tdrosebud I am so sorry I forgot to post this yesterday! Thank you so much for the lovely #FallAtHogwartsSwap Box! I absolutely love everything in here. I‘m especially excited about the chocolate wand because a friend gave me one last year and it was delicious. Also the pins are going to look SO CUTE on my student government (advisor) sweater. The books are great too! Thank you so much and so sorry that I‘m terrible at Elfster.

Fun, easy read. Not sure what I think of the heroine‘s love interest at this point, but we‘ll see.

JazzFeathers Why? What's wrong with the love interest? 4mo
S.Web @JazzFeathers He just wasn‘t that fleshed out yet. Seems like just a pretty face at this point. I read the prequel novella first, which was written after the 4th book, and there were some hints of an interesting back story for him so I‘m optimistic going forward. 4mo

So-so. Stuffed full of snark and character details, and the heroine was written as having a brain, if a bit naive. But I was ambivalent on both the hero and the mystery, and I think I'm gonna need to tap out of reading the cozy genre for a while.

I would have enjoyed this more if there were zero romantic elements and it was just Georgie forming her own independence in the 1930s setting.

esurient The posh etiquette and British class drama reminded me fondly of the Browne books, which had a modern setting. 6mo
esurient (Turns out the villain in this piece was also possibly written as being gay/bisexual -- nothing was overt, but he had one intimate conversation with a stated gay character and proposed marriage to the heroine. Both actions could easily have been solely for the purposes of manipulation; you're only reading the scenes from the heroine's perspective and she doesn't think too hard about it.) 6mo

This fantasy royal bloodline has sent me down a rabbit hole of researching Victoria's issue. It's been 30 min since I last came up for air, and now I passionately need in-depth biographies on The Princess Louise and the dukedom of Argyll.

#pricedrop If memory serves, this is the book that satirized the mating call of the upper-class British male as extending an invitation for a bit of the old rumpy-pumpy.

Yeah, I'm gonna have to read this.

rretzler Somehow it manages to be fun, satirical, a little romantic, with a fairly serious mystery all wrapped up together. It‘s become one of my favorite series. 6mo
annahenke It‘s fun and fluffy. 6mo
esurient @rretzler @annahenke So great to hear! The sample seemed breezy and snarky and was calling my name. 6mo
rretzler Speaking of snarky, I just finished this tagged book and it was full of snark. I‘m still processing, loved parts of it, including the snark, but still trying to decide if wizards and murder mysteries go together. Have you read it? 6mo

?HELP!?
I want #cozymystery recommendations. I'm new to the genre but I want the best of the best.
Rhys Bowen, Joanne Fluke, and Kate Carlisle Fixer-Upper series have been great. And I adore Agatha Christie.
I didn't like Lilian Jackson Braun "The Cat Who" or Kate Carlisle's Bibliophile series. Couldn't get into Rita Mae Brown. (Shocker, I know, given that my Litsy name and my interests, but I'm thinking I don't like cozy mysteries about cats.)

bookandcat (Before I forget, I DO own Rhys Bowen's first Molly Murphy book but haven't read it yet) 7mo
bookandcat Oh and I HAVE enjoyed/read 7mo
Librarybelle I adore M.C. Beaton, both her Hamish Macbeth and Agatha Raisin series. They‘re short and quick with amusing characters. Set in Scotland and England, respectively. 7mo
SW-T Ellery Adams, Cleo Coyle (also writes as Alice Kimberly), Jen McKinley, Caroline Hart, MC Beaton, Madelyn Alt, Shirley Damsgaard, Diana Killian, and Lorna Barrett are the cozy authors I read most. 7mo

This book was a fun cozy mystery. Set in the 1930s, Georgie is 34th in line for the crown. She has a relationship and spy‘s for Her Royal Highness. A dead body turns up in Georgie‘s house and she has to figure out why. What‘s obvious to the reader, isn‘t always obvious to Georgie, so that‘s a little annoying.

This was heaps of fun. A mystery in the vein of Flavia de Luce or Amelia Peabody. It‘s London in the inter-war years and Georgie (or rather her ladyship Georgiana) might be 34th in line to the throne but she is also flat broke - and dogged by troubles, including a dead body in her bathtub. A deliciously light, tongue in cheek, cosy, with plenty of tea and cakes. 😍

After reading the Christmas book in the series in December, I thought I'd give it a go from the beginning. I'm not big into cozies but these are well-written and there's something charming about their corniness. I imagine I'll sprinkle them in my reading when I need something breezy and undemanding. (The one where Georgie finds a dead Frenchman in her tub...)

Finished this while lounging water park side at Great Wolf Lodge! Nothing better than reading a fabulous book at an inside water park while it snows and blows outside! I absolutely adored this book! Georgie was a delight and found all the other characters fun as well. Darcy especially! The mystery aspect kept me guessing until the end and I found the story to be well paced. I can‘t wait to get my hands on the second one!!

Not too excited about this series though. Love the other two! The car was nearly hit by a big moose today. 2 metres probably saved our lives! Sometimes life is a thriller...

I picked this up as a lighter read while I make my way through The Passage and The Radium Girls which are heavy, dark reads. The premise was difficult for me to buy as Georgina, 34th in line to the throne of England takes up a job as a maid airing out houses for wealthy clients as she is in need of an income. The first half plodded along, but the second half picked up the pace which I appreciated. Not sure if I‘ll pick up any more in the series.

😭😭😭 I had read great things but this book just didn‘t work for me. Good editing but the story itself dragged. I was thrown by some of the language (odd contractions in sentences about the inappropriateness of using “weekend” etc) & the constant money carry on grated, almost as if the author was taking too much glee in a poor aristocrat. Grandad was the best character by far but most of the others were dense, oblique or irritating. Not a fan 😭

wanderinglynn Same here. Someone highly recommended this series to me, but I felt the whole spy thing was a relatively minor plot point with a rather unsatisfying result. 2y
GlassAsDiamonds @wanderinglynn I‘m so glad you said that! I was really hoping HRH was going to come to the party with an allowance & some “real” spying but ... *nothing* (and I didn‘t like any of the rest of it enough to bother figuring out if the series picks up). Quite bummed but I suppose at least now I know... 2y

I‘m of two minds about this book. For me, it‘s really the last quarter of the book that keeps it from being a so-so, and there was a point, about halfway through, where I almost bailed. Georgie is a great character, but some of the situations were so nonsensical and unrealistic that I was ready to quit. It wasn‘t until it became clear that it was her life in danger that my interest ratcheted up.

A good 3 stars. Classic historical mystery set up in the 1930s London. The set up is classic and a bit transparent, I knew who did it half way through but Georgie is worth the read, she is an interesting character that has room to grow. The secondary female characters are a bit problematic in the way they are set up as adversary due to their gender even Belinda, who is the best friend, who is set up in a way that bothered me.

Positively scintillating as only royalty could do. There‘s not a lot of spying going on here, after all such things should be conducted properly over a warm cup of tea and such things take time to percolate. But Lady Georgiana is adorable and if you met her in person, I‘m quite sure you‘d be only to enthralled by her tale of woe! 👑 🕵️‍♀️

nomadreader I enjoyed this one on audio a few years ago. This reminds me to pick up this series again! 2y
Redjewel_7734 I have to keep my brain busy at work, so I find that I can listen to 4+ hours of podcasts in there each day then follow it up with whatever audiobook I'm listening to at the time, which means I can listen to 1-3 a week depending on length. It helps my day go by sooo much faster 😊 2y

ReadingEnvy @nomadreader I am enjoying it! It fits a similar bill as Phryne Fisher for me, although this character is rather more innocent (for now, is the sense I get haha) 2y
ReadingEnvy @Redjewel_7734 wow!! I can sometimes listen at work but it depends on what I'm up to. 2y

I've decided to have a rather decadent Saturday breakfast to go with this book which is described as a "smashing romp." I already love the narrative voice and think it's going to be great fun. #24in48
