Set in London in 1930, this merry first in a new cozy series from Agatha-winner Bowen introduces a delightful heroine\x97Lady Victoria Georgiana Charlotte Eugenie.

When her brother cuts off her pitiful allowance, Georgie leaves the family home in Scotland for London, determined to become a liberated woman. Lasting only a few hours as a saleswoman in Harrods, Georgie starts a maid service, but she turns detective after finding a drowned man in her bathtub. When her brother is accused of the murder, she must try to clear him and the family name. Quirky characters like her lovable grandfather; her estranged, oft-wed mother; and an incorrigible, sexy Irishman add to the fun.

Bowen is also the author of the Molly Murphy (In Dublin's Fair City , etc.) and the Constable Evans (Evanly Bodies , etc.) series.
