Naughty in Nice- light but pleasant

Naughty in Nice
Rhys Bowen

Another mystery about the broke but Royal and 34th in the line of succession Lady Georgiana. It has some fun with famous folks like Coco Chanel, Wallis Simpson and her captive prince, Nazi sympathizer "David" later Edward 8th who abdicated to stay with the vulgar Baltimorean. Not that the two things are synonymous. Anyway, Georgie get a trip to Nice where she has to stay with SIL Fig and her equally horrible sister Ducky until she's rescued by an unlikely person- her ne'er do well actress mum. I must say I'm profoundly glad the lower classes don't go in for hideous nicknames. The whole thing is a rather silly romp. I finished it in a few relaxed hours and thoroughly enjoyed it.
