The Poyson Garden
3 journalers for this copy...
An entertaining mystery set in the court of Elizabeth I.
My first "catch" - plus the bonus of meeting the "releaser"! I got to choose books from a number of them brought by this bookcrosser to a my first "Meetup." Looking forward to reading it and others by this author.
Just finished this interesting mystery - different from the type of mysteries I usually read because it takes place during the time "Bloody" Mary Tudor is Queen and Elizabeth is in exile, awaiting her turn to rise to the throne. Elizabeth is the protagonist. Very enjoyable, thanks MarciNYC! Starting the next one in the series today.
Being returned to MarciNYC for release to another bookcrossing member. Enjoy!

Marci... thanks so much for offering this book in a relay and for the lovely note inside the book! I am the one who should be thanking you! I am looking forward to trying this book. When I have finished, I will definitely move it on to pastures new... there is a mystery book box heading my way in the not too distant future, I will probably include it in that. I will make another journal entry in the interim, though. Thanks again!

This was fun and different... Elizabeth I as an amateur detective? Sounds weird but somehow it works! I liked the fact that the mystery is tied into an historical context so the concept is not as trite as it might otherwise sound. This was a great book, Marci, thanks for trading!
I have recently received a book-box of mystery novels so I will place this in there so that another BXer can discover this interesting and quirky novel.
