It seems the Happy Valley community wants to close the case but as Georgie and Darcy investigate almost everyone has a motive to want Lord Cheriton dead It's a shock and disappointment to give this book 2 stars I've read the whole series and I am a Georgie fan for sure but this was an absolute bore Georgie is barely present Darcy is a shell of himself and the story is completely context driven Pages and pages of contextual description with barely a plot line thrown in for good measure And about that plot The mystery here springs from a night at a bed hopping party that for this series is out of tune There have been other hints in other books of the debauchery of the time but only hints really Here it is spelled out in technicolor Not something I expect to find in this series and an unpleasant surprise Reading the Afterword I see that the story is based on historical fact and maybe that's the problem here the whole story was already sketched out in history and Bowen had to wrench something entertaining out of it But it was not Entertaining that is A real low point in an otherwise great series

Love and Death Among the Cheetahs Her Royal Spyness #13Georgie and Darcy are finally on their honeymoon in Kenya's Happy Valley but murder crashes the party in this all new installment in the New York Times bestselling seriesGeorgie is excited when Darcy announces out of the blue that they are flying to Kenya for their extended honeymoon It is only after they arrive that she suspects he has actually been sent there on an assignment She tries not to be angry because she However historically accurate this may have been it was not enjoyable to read about a group of privileged twits insulting everything they could about Kenya while still complaining about whatever they were unable to forcefully covert to traditional British conditions Too many wild animals The shopping here is horrible These gardens don't look English enough let's bring in non native plants How boring the only activities here are polo bed hopping and shooting animals Why don't the 'natives' cook traditional FrenchBritish food?ueenie and Georgie's mother were hardly in the story and Belinda not at all so the only familiar characters besides Georgie and Darcy were Wallis Simpson and 'cousin David'And Georgie after everything that she has been through you would have thought that she would grow and change as a result How can she still be the same clueless naif? No wonder Darcy doesn't tell her what he really does for the government she tries to blow his cover when she introduces him I thought that she was growing backbone and common sense Golly Why are there mirrors on the ceiling in a house where the hostess greets us while nude in her bathtub? And the mystery view spoiler One of the mysteries turns out to have never existed jewel thief another has no satisfactory result drug running and a third is never resolved who is trying to kill Georgie and Darcy The main mystery the 'murder' is pinned on the only Kenyan who is given any type of character development at the very last moment with the only indicators to the reader that he is even a suspect being the fact that he is so present in the story hide spoiler
