The Windsor Knot Reviews

Hilarious, affectionate, and so well observed... I loved it * Joanne Harris *
Gently hilarious, discreetly compelling and utterly charming, The Windsor Knot adds detection to the mystique of monarchy. It's Miss Marple meets The Crown. * AMANDA CRAIG, bestselling author of The Golden Rule *
One to watch . . . Miss Marple meets The Crown * THE BOOKSELLER *
Full of authentic details, the plot is smart and twisty and the whole thing is wonderfully (oddly) believable. Absolute perfection! * ISABELLE BROOM *
Bracingly fresh yet endearingly familiar, The Windsor Knot is a dead cert for the winner's enclosure. It gallops along at a cracking pace, is laugh-out-loud funny and completely convincing, peppered with delicious royal detail and in-jokes. Priceless and charming - a jewel in the crown. * VERONICA HENRY, Sunday Times bestselling author *
[A] warm and witty murder mystery...A delightful and respectful tribute to Windsor's canniest - and most discreet - amateur sleuth. * Woman&Home, Book of the Month *
A deftly layered, surprisingly convincing and tongue-in-cheek whodunnit that will keep you guessing. -- Sarra Manning, Literary Editor * RED *
A witty take on royal life, this sparkling debut takes cosy crime to the next level. * My Weekly *
A novel plot with surprises along the way..A fantastically fun whodunnit. * Candis *
What a hoot! * Saga *
I loved every page of this book...I do hope that Her Majesty has a few more cases which she's been keeping under the crown. The Thursday Murder Club was a cracker. The Windsor Knot is better. * *
This version of Her Majesty - shrewd, sensible and inquisitive - has much in common with Alan Bennett's royal creation in The Uncommon Reader, and the resulting book, with its mixture of real and imagined characters, is charming, cosy and respectful. * The Guardian *
The first book in a highly original and delightfully charming crime series...gloriously funny and oozes affection. -- Adele Parks * Platinum *
In this delightful and suspenseful whodunit, author SJ Bennett pulls off the prodigious feat of transforming Queen Elizabeth into an amateur detective. For those of us who love The Crown but think it should have a little more murder in it, this is perfection. * PETER SWANSON, author of RULES FOR PERFECT MURDER *

About SJ Bennett

SJ Bennett wrote several award-winning books for teenagers before turning to adult mysteries. She lives in London and has been a royal watcher for years, but is keen to stress that these are works of fiction: the Queen, to the best of her knowledge, does not secretly solve crimes. You can find her at for all things crime and royal, on Instagram @sophiabennett_writer and on Twitter @sophiabennett.
