The Windsor Knot
Her Majesty the Queen Investigates: Book #1
If you enjoyed Magpie Murders, then you’ll love The Windsor Knot.
“SJ Bennett is a marvel with accents, especially endearing when it comes to Rosie, the Undersecretary drafted as the new sidekick sleuth. A wonderfully fun and modern cozy mystery with a no nonsense Monarch you begin to feel you know a little better. Listening is like being part of the entourage of the behind-the-scenes crack team assembled to rundown hunches, call in tips, and generally get the job done. All in secret, and all known only to one person. One does love a good mystery.”Charity, Schuler Books
“I love the idea of Queen Elizabeth sleuthing behind the scenes! As charmingly and convincingly portrayed by SJ Bennett, the Queen is an astute observer whose decades of experience serve her well in this role. When a Russian pianist is found dead at Windsor Castle, the new head of MI5 muddles the case and makes the mistake of treating the Queen like his doddering granny. It’s up to the Queen to secretly and skillfully line up the pieces of the puzzle for MI5 to solve.”Margo Grimm Eule, East City Bookshop
“The Queen solves mysteries! (Yes, *that* Queen). A particularly scandalous murder takes place in Queen Elizabeth’s beloved “happy place” Windsor Castle and turns out she’s been solving mysteries for ages under the noses of her overprotective and sometimes condescending family and staff. This takes place between the death of Diana and before Harry and Meaghan so it’s a relatively calm period in the Queen’s life. Helped by a new assistant, she solves the case! Also featured is a moving portrayal of her relationship with Philip. Darker than I thought it would be for a mystery featuring the Queen, suitable for fans of Tana French, Louise Penny, and The Crown. Great on audio! ”Kelly, Fountain Bookstore
“A delightful whodunnit with none other than Queen Elizabeth II as sleuth. You'll read this and believe the Queen really does solve mysteries. I mean, why not? She is amazing. The audio of this book made the book all the more enjoyable. The narrator, Jane Copland, did a remarkable job with all of the voices and and sounds very much like the Queen. Well done!”Myrna, Content
“This is the delightful first volume of a new series detailing how Queen Elizabeth II discreetly solves crimes while carrying out her duties as a reigning monarch. If you love royalty and Murder, She Wrote, don't miss this! Plus Jane Copland's audio narration makes this a great listen to distract from the everyday.”Chelsea, Parnassus Books
If you enjoyed The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie, then you’ll love The Windsor Knot.
“Listening to The Windsor Knot resulted in more than one "driveway moment"-- no matter that I was home, I wanted to hear more! Anyone who misses The Crown on PBS will be more than content with narrator Jane Copland's perfect Queen Elizabeth. An inconvenient death of a dashing Russian pianist following a "dine and sleep" at Windsor Castle appears to be a murder. Local police and official royal investigators explore leads, but they're no match for the intuition of the very clever Queen, and her private secretary Rozie. Corgis, teas, royal equines, Prince Philip cameos and more enhance the mystery. Good news -- it's the first of a series!”Cheryl, Book House of Stuyvesant Plaza
