any fan of fiona buckley and her character ursula blanchard will enjoy this story. i enjoyed reading this book. the detail that buckley writes can make you think you are in england,at the court of elizabeth, and with ursula every step she takes.
ursula's relatives enlist her help when her cousin, edward faldene,heads to scotland carrying a dangerous weapon: a secret list of families loyal to elizabeth's rival, mary, queen of scots. desperated to stop the treasonous mission, ursula rides north in haste to intercept her cousin. it is a journey made without royal permission, and one made in vain. ursula arrives in edinburgh too late-and finds herself tracking a killer inside the scottish queen's court. whom can she trust? mary, the enemy, who is in fact kind and charming? her genial courtiers? the aristocrat who vies for ursula' heart? every player falls under suspicion in a sinister game in which, for a queen, everyone is a pawn.

"Buckley describes vividly the difficulties of people living and competing with each other in
Elizabethan England."

']am-packed with action, suspense, and court intrigue. . . .
cleverly plotted. . . . Buckley adeptly captures the spirit
and the drama of the Elizabethan' Age." _

This is the best one yet! Must be cuz its in Scotland!
Didnt much like the switch back and forth through time, it kind of ruined the flow, since it started in the middle of the book (weird).
