This review is based on the audiobook narrated by Katherine Kellgren.
This was an hour long prequel story to the Royal Spyness series. It takes place just after Georgie’s disastrous coming out and before the beginning of the series.
This was a nice little glimpse into Georgie’s past and into the lives of impoverished nobles trying to make ends meet. But because of the length of the novel, only a bit over a hour, it lacks the twisty series of crimes and large cast of suspects that all the other stories have. Also, Darcy’s insertion into the story was a pointless effort to make their ongoing romance seem fated and I could have done without it.
A fun little interlude but it is intended for fans of the series.
