Book Review: The Windsor Knot by S. J. Bennett

Looking for your next read? Check out The Windsor Knot by S. J. Bennett, reviewed by Fulco Library staff at the College Park Library.

The Windsor Knot is the first book in a cozy crime series in which Queen Elizabeth secretly solves crimes. Set in 2016, this new series has Queen Elizabeth II solving a murder that takes place at Windsor Castle. A young Russian pianist performing for the Queen is found dead the morning after. MI5 investigates and suspects that Putin ordered his death since the pianist is Russian and this would let the Queen know he could get past her security.   With the help of her assistant private security, Rozie Oshodi, a British Nigerian officer, the Queen decides to solve the murder herself.

The Queen sends Rozie out to investigate different leads and then “feeds” the information as clues to MI5. Of course, MI5 never realizes the Queen is solving the case for them. 

The Queen is an excellent observer, insightful problem solver, and a good judge of character. As a lover of cozy mysteries, I am looking forward to S.J. Bennett’s next book in this series. I recommend The Windsor Knot for cozy mystery fans, those looking for a unique, light, and imaginative read; for readers who love the Royal Family.
