As a true fan National Geographic Field Guide to the Birds of North America, 7th Edition of Rhys Bowen having read allf her books I could not wait for the latest installment in Her Royal Spyness series However I find myself rather disappointed with this entry and am trying to figure ut why exactly So I read the reviews n Goodreads hoping that someone would put their finger n what was missing but no ne has expressed the sense A History of Prophecy in Israel, Revised and Enlarged of what I m actually feeling upon completing this story I absolutely love the way Rhys is able to intertwine real history into a cozy mystery I believe she handled manyf the less desirable truths Think good thoughts about a pussycat of this historical time period and in particular the debauched colonial activity in Kenya with aplomb However the character development that she has built into the last twelve booksf this series was severely lacking in this book In fact my two favorites Georgie and Darcy are supposed to be in love and One, Two, Three Me on their honeymoon yet they act like pals than newlyweds Trust me I don t need a romance novel here I would just appreciate dialog that was in keeping with two people in love rather than You re a cracking girl Georgie I made a good choice when I asked you to marry me S Series Royal Spyness 13Publication Date 8619Numberf Pages 304I have wanted to start reading this series since its beginning but for some reason I never did I remedied that by starting with this book and I thoroughly enjoyed it I didn t find starting with the thirteenth book a problem Yes I missed the development f the relationship between Darcy and Georgie but goodness I got to start with the honeymoon I m sure I missed ut Sex and Lust in Tijuana: True Sex Stories of the Tjamigos on the developmentf ther characters and relationships but I fully intend to go back and read the first books f the series when I have a chance to do so None Tea for Ruby of what I d missed detracted from my enjoymentf this book It is well written and witty with great characters and multiple mysteries Al It s a shock and disappointment to give this book 2 stars I ve read the whole series and I am a Georgie fan for sure but this was an absolute bore Georgie is barely present Darcy is a shell The Life of Saint Philip Neri of himself and the story is completely context driven Pages and pagesf contextual description with barely a plot line thrown in for good measure And about that plot The mystery here springs from a night at a bed hopping party that for this series is ut f tune There have been ther hints in ther books I only Like the Fingers of the Guy I Hate, Vol. 1 of the debaucheryf the time but The Whistle Pig only hints really Here it is spelledut in technicolor Not something I expect to find in this series and an unpleasant surprise Reading the Afterword I se. Georgie and Darcy are finally n their honeymoon in Kenya's Happy Valley but murder crashes the party in this all new installment in the New York Times bestselling seriesGeorgie is excited when Darcy announces ut f the blue that they are flying to Kenya for their extended honeymoon It is nly after they arrive that she suspects he has actually been sent there n an assignment She tries not to be angry because she.
Rgie are true partners in figuring ut what is happening around them Not that he steals the show from Georgie who still figures A Stepdaughter In Heat out just about everything along the way We do get the usual slow start which allows us a little time to hear from mostf the series regulars before heading down to Kenya And let me say their trip made me very happy for how travel has advanced since the 1930 s Even when we arrive in Kenya it takes a bit f time for the murder to take place but nce it does the mystery is well worth the wait with some great secrets that Georgie and Darcy must bring to light I did have a hard time keeping all Rufus of the British colonists straight but that never got in the wayf following the mystery My bigger complaint is an event that takes place in the middle f the book that seems force to have Darcy and Georgie where they are needed for the plot I appreciated how the book worked in the world politics f the time without feeling ut f place in the series And I also appreciated the ability to be an arm chair traveler since I can t take a vacation this year although it really made me want to go n a safari f my Women and Social Work: Towards a Woman-Centered Practice ownNOTE I received a copyf this bookRead my full review at Carstairs Considers What a disappointment This has been ne f my favorite series and a favorite author and I was so looking forward to the new book If I had started with this The Cowboys one I wouldn t have read anyther books by the author I didn t care for the subject matter at all This was a very good read I liked the realistic description Sins of Treachery of Africa and its wildlife However I was disappointed that Lady G Did not get involved in hi jinxs and we did not have the benefitf Belinda s sassy comments It read as a mystery with very little comic relief The reviews here are making me ROTFLMAO First you ve got the people who want to scrub history sparkling clean and So satisfying to finally have Georgiana and Darcy married Everything else is incidental reallyI agree with some commenters that this book lacks a bit due to the absence r rare appearance f delightful secondary characters But it d hardly be realistic to have them all pack My Grandfather's Prison: A Story of Death and Deceit in 1940s Kansas City off with the newlyweds so I m forgiving there Even so this installment lacks a bitf charm f the series in general and as unpleasantly realistic as the British aristocracy was portrayed in Kenya the murder mystery itself a bit blandOverall yay for the newlyweds looking forward to happy married life and Georgie stepping n dead bodies in her path I give this book 5 stars because I love all Whos Next? Guess Who! of Rhys Bowen s books.
