A Three Dog Problem
3 journalers for this copy...
Queen Elizabeth II is having a royal nightmare. A referendum divides the nation, a tumultuous election grips the United States - and the body of a staff member is found dead beside Buckingham Palace swimming pool. Is it a tragic accident, as the police think? Or is something more sinister going on?
As Her Majesty looks for answers, her trusted assistant, Rozie, is on the trail of a treasured painting that once hung outside the Queen's bedroom. But when Rozie receives a threatening anonymous letter, Elizabeth knows dark forces are at work - and far too close to home.
After all, though the staff and public may not realise it, she is the keenest sleuth among them. Sometimes, it takes a Queen's eye to see connections where no one else can ...

Many thanks for this wishlist surprise that I received in our Tampere meet-up today. Last Christmas I enjoyed the first part of this series so am I happy to continue soon. Perhaps many of us miss Queen Elizabeth II in real life, too.

This started off nicely and I quickly remembered how I liked Rozie’s character in the first book. She and Her Majesty were the stars in this story, too. Mostly this was quite funny with the dry humorous remarks from the Queen. In the middle part the story slowed down and became a bit tedious but speeded again towards the end.
One cannot help wondering how the author writes about the Royal household and palace premises sounding so professional. Where is the origin for this inside knowledge or is it all however just fictional.
- Trump mentioned on page 63 and repeated several times later on
- (John F.) Kennedy on page 145
- Lyndon B. Johnson on page 145
- (Juan Manuel) Santos on pages 186-188
