What an unexpected delight!
A quote from the back of the book: “S J Bennett captures Queen Elizabeth’s voice with skill, nuance, wit, and genuine charm in this imaginative and engaging mystery that portrays Her Majesty as she’s rarely seen: kind yet worldly, decisive, shrewd, and most important, a great judge of character.” There’s no way to say it better.
A guest is found dead in one of Windsor Castle’s bedrooms. Was it suicide? The Queen thinks not. It’s murder, pure and simple. But, the official investigation heads down a rabbit hole, so Her Majesty begins to make a few inquiries of her own, discreetly, of course. With the help of her assistant private secretary, Rozie, the Queen goes about her royal duties, all the while investigating the murder.
Don’t miss out on The Windsor Knot. I’m already waiting for a sequel. - Brenda
