The acclaimed author of Murder in the Queenâ€™s Garden
returns to Tudor England with amateur sleuth Kate Haywood
embroiled in court intrigue and a devastating
1559. The Twelve Days of
Christmas at Whitehall Palace will be celebrated as a grand
affair. But there are those who wish to usher in the New
Year by ending Queen Elizabethâ€™s reign....
Despite evenings of banquets and dancing, the European
delegates attending Her Majestyâ€™s holiday festivities are
less interested in peace on earth than they are in fostering
mistrust. Kate, the queenâ€™s personal musician, hopes she can
keep the royal guests entertained.
But then Queen
Elizabeth receives a most unwanted giftâ€”an anonymous letter
that threatens to reveal untoward advances from her beloved
Queen Catherineâ€™s last husband, Thomas Seymour. Tasked with
finding the extortionist, Kate has barely begun
investigating when one of Spainâ€™s visiting lords is found
murdered. With two mysteries to unravel and an unsettling
number of suspects to consider, Kate finds herself caught
between an unscrupulous blackmailer and a cold-blooded

Re: Murder at Whitehall
How interesting. I love to read historical books and look
forward to reading this one. I guess I do not have a
favorite wife of the king but seem to always have an
interest with any historical character that has the name
Catherine or Joan.

This is a hard question for me. It's a toss-up between
Catherine of Aragon. Not only was she the 1st wife, but
Shakespeare called her "the Queen of Earthly Queens." Jayne
Seymour was genuinely loved by Henry. Then there's Catherine
Parr, who tried to bring unity to their household, and Henry
trusted her enough while he went off to war. Your latest
book sounds like a wonderful read, and I've put it on my TBR
list. Have a great Christmas, and the best in the coming
