Sunday Book Club – The Windsor Knot, S.J Bennett

Every Sunday we are taking a look at the world of books. I read a lot and always want to share my opinions on what I read, so I thought it would be fun to write reviews. Today we look at a royal mystery book, The Windsor Knot

The Windsor Knot (2021)

S.J. Bennett


On a perfect Spring morning at Windsor Castle, Queen Elizabeth II will go for a ride, carry out all her royal duties… and solve a murder.

The morning after a ‘dine and sleep’ at Windsor Castle, eighty-nine-year-old Queen Elizabeth is shocked to discover that one of her guests has been found murdered in his room, with a dressing-gown cord around his neck. When the police and MI5 begin to suspect her loyal servants, Her Majesty is certain they are looking in the wrong place …

Positive Points

Even though the narrative and situation is unbelievable, it is a quite a fun little read that is something that you can take on holiday and enjoy. I mean it is fiction so you have to be open minded to accept that the idea could exist. I wasn’t sure I was going to enjoy it but found it an easy read. It is interesting how they create this approach to how the Queen would solve a murder.

Negative Points

I felt that the end of the book was a bit rushed and I remember feeling a bit deflated when I got to the end. It was a shame it didn’t end how I thought but in some ways I cannot hold that against it.

Overall Review

It is an ok read, it is one that you could definitely take on holiday and read by the pool. There are two more in this series so I will be reviewing them once I have read them to. I wasn’t sure initially I was going to enjoy this book and definitely enjoyed it more then I thought I would and found it really easy to accept the role of the Queen in it.
