Miss Marple meets HRH, Queen Elizabeth
“It pays to maintain an open mind.”
~SJ Bennett. The Windsor Knot
When one of the guests at Queen Elizabeth’s ninetieth birthday celebration is murdered at Windsor Palace, it threatens to become a political scandal involving Russia. But Her Majesty, and her private secretary, Rozie are on the case.
Bennett’s first in the crime series featuring Her Majesty, the Queen as a sleuth, captures the British palace atmosphere of pomp and circumstance, as well as Queen Elizabeth’s more private and personable side, which is sure to please most Anglophiles.
While I am an Anglophile and enjoyed the setting and British-isms of the story, my attention wavered with the narrative. The head hopping point of view was quite distracting for me. However, I think that fans of Miss. Marple and the Monarchy may find this title right up their alley.
