Another exciting historical thriller set in the world of Lady Grace, Maid of Honour to Queen Elizabeth I, now in paperback
Lady Grace and her fellow Maids of Honour are travelling with the Queen and the rest of the court on their summer Progress. It should be lots of fun but Grace can't help worrying about a series of accidents that have befallen the Queen. Was it just coincidence that she fell off her horse in the same day that a statue tumbled in the garden and almost hit her? Grace, the Queen's Lady Pursuivant, investigates just who could be behind these accidents – is there a conspiracy at work? Could the Queen's one true Love, the Earl of Leicester, be involved, or perhaps her trusted adviser, Lord Cecil. And surely her latest suitor, the dashing Swedish prince, wouldn't be attempting to murder his potential bride? Another fantastic romp through Elizabethan England, with the indomitable Grace at the fore.
