Summary
With love on their side, and plans to elope, Lady Georgiana Rannoch and her beau Darcy O'Mara hope to bypass a few royal rules. Such as her needing special permission from the King to marry a Roman Catholic because she is in line for the British crown (well, thirty-fifth, but still, it's possible). Darcy's family's Irish castle has been sold to a rich American who now employs Darcy's father as a hired hand. When the American is murdered, Darcy's father had more than enough motive to do the deed but insists he's innocent. Georgiana and Darcy postpone the elopement to head for Ireland

Review
/* Starred Review */ Set in late 1934, Bowen’s outstanding 10th Royal Spyness Mystery (after 2015’s Malice at the Palace) opens on the road to Gretna Green, Scotland, where distant heir to the British throne Lady Georgiana Rannoch and the Honorable Darcy O’Mara plan to elope. En route, Darcy learns that his father, Lord Kilhenny, is in custody for killing Timothy Roach, the wealthy American who bought Kilhenny Castle and the adjacent horse-racing stable. Lord Kilhenny argued with Roach, his fingerprints are on the murder weapon, and he drank too much on the evening in question to remember whether he’s guilty, so he’ll likely hang for the crime. To save Georgie from scandal, Darcy ends his engagement to her and returns home to County Kildare, Ireland. Bowen adds romance to this blend of Christie and Wodehouse for a stylish, head-scratcher of a whodunit. Colorful set pieces and larger-than-life characters enrich the clever plot, which enchants and satisfies while forwarding the series arc. Agent: Meg Ruley, Jane Rotrosen Agency. (Aug.)
