Mystery Historical

The acclaimed author of Murder in the Queen’s Garden returns to Tudor England with amateur sleuth Kate Haywood embroiled in court intrigue and a devastating scandal.

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 Elizabeth’s reign....

Despite evenings of banquets and dancing, the European delegates attending Her Majesty’s holiday festivities are less interested in peace on earth than they are in fostering mistrust. Kate, the queen’s personal musician, hopes she can keep the royal guests entertained.

But then Queen Elizabeth receives a most unwanted gift—an anonymous letter that threatens to reveal untoward advances from her beloved Queen Catherine’s last husband, Thomas Seymour. Tasked with finding the extortionist, Kate has barely begun investigating when one of Spain’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 killer....

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
