Life in the 14th century was no picnic!6 May 2016 - Published on Amazon.com
Another really good read by Candace Robb. Although Owen Archer is the main character in this series, this time around Lucie, his apothecary wife, certainly shared the limelight. For me, it has been very interesting how Ms. Robb is able to bring life in the 1300's so alive and vivid. With Owen in Wales, you are pulled along with him and his feelings of his early life as a Welshman and then you are with Lucie back in York and everything she is going through caring for her family, running her apothecary and being tempted by male "friends". As if that isn't enough, Lucie must contend with problems with her extended family, all while her devoted Owen is away in Wales. Will Owen stay in Wales to help his homeland break from English rule? Will Lucie give in to her fascination with another man among all the turmoil at her family homestead? If this sounds a little like a romance novel, believe me, it is not. There are so many twists and turns in this story that I found it hard to put it down most of the time. Four and a half stars is what this book deserves! I highly recommend it.

Two Mysteries in One!27 September 2016 - Published on Amazon.com
In revisiting Candace Robb's Owen Archer series, I'm finding there is so much I've forgotten since I first read them. Spy for the Redeemer separates Owen and Lucy to solve their own mysteries, Owen is in his native Wales, while Lucy returns home to Freythorpe Haddon to deal with her own crises there. Candace Robb transports us to Medieval Britain with remarkable imagery and realism. Her mysteries are well-plotted with excellent character development that makes you feel that you are there. The only negative is when I run out of story, and return to my own 21st century. But, then, there's always another book to move on to.
Not my favorite but better than the4 November 2015 - Published on Amazon.com
Owen is still in Wales, but this time Lucie gets alternate chapters. The man Owen commissioned to cut Sir Robert's tomb has been found hanged. The archdeacon thinks its something else and forces Owen into investigating. Soon more of the plotting of Owain are involved. Meanwhile someone has attacked Sir Robert's home apparently looking for something. Tildy is left in charge as Phillipa is getting a bit senile and can't be in charge in such circumstances. Not my favorite but better than the last
