Format: Mass Market Paperback
I can't really judge if this is an accurate medieval setting, although it is a very vivid one. The problem here is the plot. At the end of the book, I am left completely baffled by the motives of the main actors. I won't discuss it in any detail, since I don't want to spoil the plot, but they must have been relatively stupid since they could have accomplished their purposes in a simple and straightforward way that would have avoided a lot of grief. A friend of mine would roll her eyes at this point and tell me that their motive is simple: if they behaved sensibly, there wouldn't be a plot. Silly me.

As a student of Medieval History and an avid reader of bothmystery novels and historical novels this book was right up my alley. Newman's characters are lively and the plot moves quickly and logically, though not necessarily predictably. I have read two books in this series and am eager to read the rest of them. I would highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a light mystery read with an historical setting. I have read this book twice myself. END

This is the 2nd in the Catherine LeVendeur series, and is every bit as enjoyable as the first. Edgar and Catherine are a great sleuthing pair, and the 12th century detail is fascinating. I also appreciate Newman's character development; even minor characters are well-developed and interesting.

A Fine Medieval Mystery. Oct. 10 2003
By S. Schwartz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio Cassette
Reading Ms. Newman's books reveals her love for the era that she writes in. She is very familiar with the 12th century, and her books are very well researched. I like Catherine and Edgar, although they do get a bit silly at times, but I'm sure they will mature nicely. They do manage to get in some pretty odious situations, as well as dangerous ones. In this book Catherine and Edgar are pulled into a family secret that results in three deaths and a lot of unhappiness. Both of them face danger, but manage to triumph, partly because of their love for each other. A good historical read!

Great historical mystery with a mix of real and fictional characters Dec 21 2013
By plb3 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This novel, the second in this series by Sharan Newman, continúes the adventures of Catherine LeVendeur, the daughter of a Paris-based trader in wine and other goods. Catherine is a serious young woman with a strong belief in the power of rational thinking; in fact, she chose to join the community of the Paraclete, led by Heloise, one time lover of Peter Abelard. Catherine has been sent on a mission by Heloise, trying to solve a mysterious death and discover why so many powerful people are trying to steal a small piece of land that has been ceded to the nuns. She is accompanied by Edgar, her new friend (and fiance) from Scotland. Both of them, singularly and in tandem face many dangers as the try to unpack the twisted strings of hidden relationships and hate.
For any reader with some background in Latin or Anglo-Saxon, each chapter begins with a short quotation that will have you dusting off your old language skills.

She creates charming characters. I do not usually read mystery series, but this is delightful. History with a very human face.
