Her Royal Spyness by Rhys Bowen - Lady Georgiana is 34th in line for the crown, but don't let that fool you, she is just as poor as everyone else during the depression. In fact, she has stooped to taking cleaning jobs just to have some money. That is until she finds a dead man in bathtub at her family's house. The police think she and her older brother Binky are the most likely suspects. So it is up to the spunky Lady Georgiana to find out what is really going on. It took me a little while to get into the story, but once I did, I enjoyed this period mystery set in 1932 London.

Consigned to Death by Jane K. Cleland - If you enjoy the world of antiques this is the mystery for you. Josie Prescott is a year into her new antiques business along the New Hampshire coastline when a major setback comes her way. She thought she was going to be the auction house for the household goods of a Mr. Grant. He has a house full of wonderful antiques. So nice they are to die for. Mr. Grant is found stabbed to death and Josie is the prime suspect. Now she will have to put all her antique sleuthing skills to work to clear her name before her business and reputation is ruined. I really enjoyed learning about the appraisal process for antiques and what goes into running an antiques business. Consigned to Death is the first in the Josie Prescott mystery series.
