    1. I would like to award more stars but can't because I am more of a character/depth sort of person rather than mystery freak. The logic employed by Kathryn Swinbrooke along with solid historical base of these books is brilliant. I have read several of these now and appreciate that eventually I do get emotional reward by following the series, so I was happy to find this older book at my library although it is not the very first of the series - still eluding me. As I write this review I am trying to [...]


    2. Great readingThe author is a master at writing all The twists and turns that keep the reader fully engaged. Loved the book.


    3. EntertainingSecond in series. Further development of characters and intriguing mystery. Not a lot of twists, good description of medieval setting.He

    5. Ein weiblicher Detektiv im Mittelalter. Da mußte ich natürlich zugreifen.Die Geschichte spielt in einem mir relativ unbekanntem Zeitraum, deshalb kann ich nicht beurteilen, ob die geschichtlichen Ereignisse alle den Tatsachen entsprechen. Aber die Figuren sind auch gut ausgearbeitet und ihre Handlungen sind logisch.Im großen Ganzen ist das Buch empfehlenswert, auch wenn ich bei der Wertung zwischen 3 und 4 pendele.


    6. Kathryn reminds me of Miss Marple and CSI with her way of discovering the truth behind murder, theft, and loss. When combined with Grace's talent for evoking the taste, feel, smell, and sound of medieval Canterbury, I'm lost within her story.The only odd note was the king having paid enough attention to Kathryn's abilities to remember her


    7. missing jewel and Kathryn, an apothecary-healer and sometimes investigator for authorities in Canterbury is tasked with finding out what happened to the jewel along with her friend, Colum an Irish mercenary working for Edw. IV. Interesting and engaging.


    8. This book took place during a break in the War of the Roses, beginning at the battle of Barnet and Tewkesbury and the death of Warwick. So Warwick had this treasure that was lost in the battle and everyone was looking for it. And there was a bunch of murders too. Good stuff.





    9. I always enjoy any book written by P.C. Doherty (C.L. Grace). The plot is always good and the history is interesting.




    10. Another good series that combines historical fiction and mystery. I also enjoy the female "detective" in this series.


    11. Reasonably satisfying mystery, though I guessed part of the solution rather early. The writing was a little too distant, which is a pity, since I liked the main characters well enough.
