Lady Grace Mysteries: Assassin (book review)
Assassin, by Patricia Finney, is the story of Lady Grace. She is lady-in-waiting to Her Majesty the Queen of England, Elizabeth I. But Lady Grace isn't like her fellow ladies in waiting. She isn't afraid to get down and dirty if it involves a mystery. And now, Lady Grace has one on her hands. One of her suitors is dead with a knife in his back. Another one is under suspicion, and yet another suitor of hers has been acting strangely ever since the murder. Can Lady Grace, along with a daring Middle Eastern acrobat and a serving girl, solve the mystery and find out who truly murdered Sir Gerald?
This book was okay, but certainly not one of my favorites. I'm looking forward to reading the next one, but there are definitely other books I would like to read first. I did, however, think the mix of historical fiction and mystery made the story interesting and exciting.
