The Sun and Stars(2012)
(The first book in the Isabel Holland Mystery series)
A novel by Elizabeth Adair
Isabel Holland, illegitimate daughter of King Henry VIII, walks a privileged but precarious road through the intrigues of the Tudor court. When her cousin Sir Hugh Lovell is accused of stealing the prized crown known as the Sun and Stars, Isabel pits her family loyalty against the political plotting of formidable opponents Cardinal Wolsey, Thomas Cromwell and the ruthless Lord Adam Colford. A young woman without official status, she discovers a conspiracy more vast than a simple theft and realizes she is the only one who can save her cousin from execution and expose a plot to betray the King and the future of England.
