My Review of “Four Funerals and Maybe a Wedding” by Rhys Bowen Berkley August 7, 2018
“Four Funerals and Maybe a Wedding”, by Rhys Bowen is a witty and entertaining mystery. This is the twelve book in “A Royal Spyness Mystery” series. This is the only book that I have read and can be read as a stand-alone. The Genres for this Novel are Fiction, Women’s Fiction, Mystery with a tad of Wit, Satire, and Romance. Poking fun at British Royalty, Rhys Bowen has provided an intriguing story.
The characters in this story are complex, complicated, and quirky. Lady Georgiana Rannock (Georgie) and Darcy O’Mara have scheduled their wedding for the summer. Georgie received a letter from one of her mother’s former husbands, and states that he is gifting her his estate to live in when she marries, and leaving a small space for him to reside in when he is home. He also mentions he would like Georgie to check on his house and make sure that everything seems fine. Darcy is away at his work.
Georgie heads to the estate only to find a Butler with rude manners, a cook that cannot cook and a maid that looks down on her work. Although Georgie starts to realize something is off, when someone leaves the gas on in her room. Other strange things start to happen that she realizes that she is in danger. Georgie has her Mother, and maid come to visit. Strange things, disappearances and bodies start showing up. I received an ARC from NetGalley for my honest reviews. I would recommend this for readers that enjoy a quirky British mystery.
