Peril in Paris by Rhys Bowen ~ a Review

by Donna Huber

Georgie and Darcy are expecting their first child! But Georgie is feeling restless with her best friend Belinda in Paris as an apprentice to Chanel, ZouZou flying to far-flung lands, and her mother in Germany. Fortunately, Darcy has a hush-hush assignment in Paris and invites Georgie along so she can spend time with Belinda and enjoy spring in Paris.

I love this series. Darcy and Georgie are one of my favorite cozy mystery couples. 

Peril in Paris is book 16 in the Her Royal Spyness series, but you don't necessarily have to have read the previous books in this series. I eventually did read all the previous books but I didn't read them in order.

If you are a fan of the series, then everything you've come to love about the series is there. I love the dynamic between Darcy and Georgie. While Darcy wants to protect and provide for Georgie, he knows how capable she is on her own. And that is definitely obvious in this installment as he has to ask Georgie to help him with his assignment. 

Of course, things don't go as planned. But with a little help from her friends (even Wallis Simpson comes to her aid), everything works out eventually. 

It was a really fun read. It was also a quick read. It was the perfect palette cleanser between some rather intense stories I've recently read. If you are looking for something light to read, you should really pick up this book.

I really hope this series continues after the baby comes. Another cozy mystery series I read ended after the couple had a baby. But this series is getting to a period of history I really enjoy reading about. While having a baby could be a complication it would be a unique angle and really Darcy and Georgie are the perfect duo for a World War II setting. They have the right connections and I think it would make for interesting stories.
