Haunted Grace Cavendish
Long time readers may remember how much I adore the Lady Grace Mysteries. They are historical fiction done right-- lots of excellent detail that never gets in the way of a wicked good plot.
In this one, Elizabeth’s court is on progress for the summer. At one estate, the owner is building a new manor house, but a spooky figure keeps appearing, stopping work. Is it a murdered earl? Or is it another noble trying to shame a rival in front of the Queen?
I especially liked how this one takes place outside of London. We still don’t see the Elizabethan England that most of it’s citizens saw, but it’s nice to occasionally leave the walls of Whitehall and see the countryside, and not just because it’s summer, so London is full of plague.
