Summary (from Amazon):

After decades of service and years of watching her family’s troubles splashed across the tabloids, Queen Elizabeth needs some proper cheering up. An impromptu visit to the place that holds her happiest memories-the former royal yacht, Britannia, moored in Leith, Scotland-is just the cure she needs. Hidden beneath a skull-emblazoned hoodie, the limber Elizabeth (thank goodness for yoga) walks out of Buckingham Palace, into the freedom of a rainy London day to catch the train to Scotland at King’s Cross. But an unlikely sextet of royal attendants-a lady-in-waiting, a butler, an equerry, a mistress of the Mews, a dresser, and a clerk from the shop that serves the queen’s cheese-join together to find their missing monarch and bring her back before her absence sets off a national scandal.

My Thoughts: I found this book quite delightful. It was funny and light and simple. I don’t really have a whole lot to say about it because it’s so straightforward. But I did get excited to drive to work so I could listen to it some more 🙂
