The Agatha Award winner debuts a 1930s London mystery series, featuring a penniless member of the extended royal family. When an arrogant Frenchman, who wants her family's estate for himself, winds up dead, Victoria's most important job is to clear her family name.

London is a place where she'll experience freedom, learn life lessons aplenty, do a bit of spying for HRH--oh, and find a dead Frenchman in her tub. Now her new job is to clear her long family name...
