When Indian Princess Alexandrina is left penniless by the sudden death of her father, Queen Victoria grants her a grace-and-favor home in Hampton Court Palace. Aside from the ghost sightings, Hampton Court doesn't seem so bad. The princess is invited to a picnic with all the palace's inhabitants, so her maid Pooki bakes a pigeon pie. But when General-Major Bagshot dies after eating the pie, and the Coroner finds traces of arsenic in his body, Pooki becomes the #1 suspect in a murder investigation.

Enjoyed life in 1800 something England. Will this put it on my completed list?

The detail of the setting, customs and dress make this cosy mystery richer than most.

So fun, it's better then her other book. I really laugh at some of the characters in this book. The author has such talent!

I was so happy to borrow this after reading The Tortoise etc. This book is equally sweet, although much sillier. Set in Victorian Times, it's about the royal hangers-on that live in Hampton Palace, and this time it's a proper murder mystery. If you like cozy murder mysteries or (gahh) that Macall Smith guy, you should enjoy this.
