This book has everything: spies! court politics! crazy Georgian-era fashion! romance! secret Jacobite rebels! assassination attempts! A very fun blend of historical fiction and mystery set at the court of George I--and, even better, it's the first in a trilogy.

Delightful. Balances entertainment--suspense, adventure, and humor--with nice historical details. The overall tone is comparatively light, but political intrigue and an attempted sexual assault in one scene make this best for teens...and adults who enjoy a good YA romp!

By far the longest title I have ever encountered LOL. Pretty good and entertaining with a complex plot line where Margaret "Peggy" Fitzroy must uncover the truth behind the death of Lady Francesca Wallingham in the reign of King George I. Hilarious at times, and comes to a satisfying conclusion.
