St. Martin's Press, 17 февр. In November 1382, the month of the dead, Abbess Hildegard rides out for York from the Abbey of Meaux. Cassandra Clark weaved a mystery from many angles. Rather than read and re-read the clues of one mystery, she added more mystery as each event progressed. The description of some of the deceased.

Cassandra Clark weaved a mystery from many angles. The description of some of the deceased, although intense, kept with the period and allowed the reader to stay focused on the mystery, not the horror. Because of the many characters (thus the added suspects), I struggled to remember who was who, even with her careful hints that helped place them. I was disappointed that not all the threads were complete, in fact one murderer was left at large.

Part of "Abbess of Meaux" series by Cassandra Clark. Book 9 in the Hildegard of Meaux series. 207. Published: 2018. Murder and mayhem engulf Hildegard of Meaux and sexy abbot Hubert de Courcy in a seventh mystery as soon as they get back from Avignon. They arrive secretly on the English coast, in a storm, at dead of night.

Set in England in the later 1300's, Sister Hildegard lives in a precarious time. After the death of her husband, she has sufficient funds to establish herself as a Cistercian nun, and plans on setting up her own small religious house, if she can find a suitable location and recruit a small number of woman to join her. She is sent by her abbess to York to visit the Abbot at the Abbey of Meux. In addition to her own mission, she is asked by the abbess to assess the political situation there and find out what she can about the loyalties to either pope and the young king. As she travels, she encounters several hanged men, and farther along a single young man who has been killed. Reporting these incidents for investigation, she spends some time at her former home as child, Castle Hutton, where she witnesses the birth and an attempt on Lord Roger's life by poison. Managing to save him using her knowledge of herbs, Roger asks Hildegard and his trusted steward to pretend that he is dead and search for the culprit. Hildegard agrees, but finds things to be much more complex than they originally anticipated, and as more bodies pile up, she finds her own life may be in danger as she tries to find out the truth. This was an interesting start to the series and I look forward to learning more about the characters and historical period in the next book in the series.

Likes:
Good character development. Strong female characters. Underlying story to continue in later books. No horrifyingly graphic violence! Sex was I understated. A little bit of romance. Ms. Clark allowed her characters to express strong feelings without the use of foul words.

Dislikes:
I can't think of anything distasteful!

I highly recommend this book and I look forward to reading the other books in this series! Hopefully Cassandra Clark will continue writing medieval mysteries for years to come!

New to the series I wasn't sure if I would like it but by the third chapter I was thoroughly engaged. A few slips into modern vernacular was firmly overcome by the accuracy of historical detail.

This book is wonderful.
I love Hildegaard- thirtyish year old widow with grown children who chooses to be a Nun rather than enter another marriage. The cast of supporting characters is wonderfully fleshed out- I love Sir Roger and his wife as well as Ulf.
However my favorite part is the emerging relationship between Hildegaard and the Abbot of Meaux.
Buy this book- you will not regret it!
Be prepared- as soon as you are finished you will want to read Book 2- The Red Velvet Turnshoe

Great mystery. Can't wait to get started on the next one.

Riveting story with lots of period detail and a likeable heroine, but the editing job is sub par, therefore very distracting. Words have been omitted changing the meaning of sentences so they have to be reread, and quite a few letters are missing or incorrect; e.g "of" for "off," "than" for "that."
The main protagonist is unsympathetic. Her marriage and widowhood are provided as background with as much emotional input as providing the ingredients of a box of cereal. No reasons are provided for her (or her superior's) political position regarding either of the popes. I may eventually finish the book, but there are plenty of other historical mysteries for the period that are far more readable.
