The Serpent's Tale by Ariana Franklin
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is the second book in the Mistress of the Art of Death series. Once again Adelia is called in by the King to find out who is guilty of murder. She finds herself snowed in at a convent along with the murderer as well as the Queen of England and the bodies are stacking up. This murder mystery is full of twists and turns and alot of subtlty that is easily overlooked. And even tho this is the second book in this series it can be read without reading the first one as Adelia's history is explained along the way. Its easy to feel for Adelia as she has to do her work without anybody knowing lest she be called a witch and burned at the stake. All in all a very good read. Anybody that likes a good mystery will enjoy this one.
