Sharan Newman recommends
Shadows in Scarlet (2001)
Lillian Stewart Carl
"Lillian's wicked sense of humor and her excellent scholarship put Shadows in Scarlet far above the usual novel of romantic suspense. I read it in one sitting, staying up far too late, because I had to know what would happen to Amanda and her most lively ghost. I found the book delightful, altogether a wonderful escape."
The Service of the Dead (2016)
(Kate Clifford, book 1)
Candace Robb
"Candace Robb has created another wonderful, strong character in Kate Clifford, a widow of York. Brought up in the border wars of Scotland, Kate is tough but also knows the grief of sudden death. When a body is found in her guest house, she fears that the English struggle between King Richard II and his cousin Henry has reached her town and family. Kate is aided in her search for answers by her unusual household, including the bastard children of her late husband. With plot twists as tangled and unexpected as the streets of medieval York, this gritty story kept me enthralled and guessing up to the end. Robb s thorough knowledge of the time and place brings a texture to her portrayal of York that brings the reader into Kate s life as if transported through time."
