13 posts | 6 read | 24 to read
Elizabeth Fremantle's THE POISON BED is a chilling, noirish thriller ripped straight from the headlines. A king, his lover and his lover's wife. One is a killer. In the autumn of 1615 scandal rocks the Jacobean court when a celebrated couple are imprisoned on suspicion of murder. She is young, captivating and from a notorious family. He is one of the richest and most powerful men in the kingdom. Some believe she is innocent; others think her wicked or insane. He claims no knowledge of the murder. The king suspects them both, though it is his secret at stake. Who is telling the truth? Who has the most to lose? And who is willing to commit murder?

What are you up to this Saturday?

I dropped my daughter off at work this morning and then went with my husband to The Corner Bookstore, where we got married last year. ♥️ I was looking for a book I saw a picture of on their Facebook page. I couldn‘t find it.

I still left with books. 🤷‍♀️

Butterflyamore @Clwojick I read The Family Upstairs recently, which was my first Lisa Jewel book, and I enjoyed it so much! I‘m looking forward to reading some of her older books now! 4mo

A Jacobean murder mystery, centring around the schemes and machinations of the notorious Howard Family. Frances Howard and her husband Robert Carr are locked in the Tower of London, kept apart, what will they say or do to escape the hangman‘s noose.

Living it up on a Friday night. Chilled wine, mellow music, snoring dog, comfy chair and a good book. ♥️

#Pigeonhole

Based on the real muder case of Thomas Overbury, this is populated by a whole cast of historical characters. The plot hinges on whether he was killed by Frances Owen or Robert Carr and is narrated by alternatively by them. A question everything type of book. Frances is a great character. It's a very good murder mystery but to me it doesn't entirely capture the atmosphere of the age.

A gripping tale of murder, witchcraft, secrets, betrayal and deception. It‘s beautifully written, well paced and full of intrigue. There are some amazing and colourful characters, one or two of whom are not as they seem and are easy to hate! Be warned! Plenty of twists and turns and it had me on the edge of my seat with suspense. It‘s an absolute page turner. An exciting and and captivating story which brings history alive.

Pigeonhole app.
