Happy Monday Everyone!
I hope the weekend treated everyone well as we start our first full week into the new year! In moving along with some of my goals for my blog, you will start to see different types of posts than what I have done before. There will be some new posts featured this week, so I hope you like them!
Today, I have another mystery for you all, which is the latest book in The Lady Emily series, which I have come to love! Uneasy Lies The Crown by Tasha Alexander, allows the reader to be taken through two different era’s in time, while trying to solve a mystery.
The book description comes from the Goodreads website:
“In Uneasy Lies the Crown, the thrilling new mystery in Tasha Alexander’s bestselling series, Lady Emily and her husband Colin must stop a serial killer whose sights may be set on the new king, Edward VII.
On her deathbed, Queen Victoria asks to speak privately with trusted agent of the Crown, Colin Hargreaves, and slips him a letter with one last command: Une sanz pluis. Sapere aude. “One and no more. Dare to know.”
The year is 1901 and the death of Britain’s longest-reigning monarch has sent the entire British Empire into mourning. But for Lady Emily and her dashing husband, Colin, the grieving is cut short as another death takes center stage. A body has been found in the Tower of London, posed to look like the murdered medieval king Henry VI. When a second dead man turns up in London’s exclusive Berkeley Square, his mutilated remains staged to evoke the violent demise of Edward II, it becomes evident that the mastermind behind the crimes plans to strike again.
The race to find the killer takes Emily deep into the capital’s underbelly, teeming with secret gangs, street children, and sleazy brothels—but the clues aren’t adding up. Even more puzzling are the anonymous letters Colin has been receiving since Victoria’s death, seeming to threaten her successor, Edward VII. With the killer leaving a trail of dead kings in his wake, will Edward be the next victim?”
I love how Tasha keeps the reader guessing and on the edge of their seat until the very end. The way she jumps between two eras give the reader a more in depth look into the story, and the way she makes the two stories come together is a work of art. From the second I started reading this book, I was hooked from the very first word. Her character Lady Emily is all attitude, and woman power, which makes you love her even more, plus she has a supportive and loving husband which makes the flow of the story that much better.
If you love mysteries that leave you on the edge of your seat and guessing until the very end than this series and book is for you!
Go on a crazy adventure and help Emily catch a killer before it is too late!
