Musing Mondays

Musing Monday is hosted by Should be Reading.

Right now I'm reading a book called Mistress of the Art of Death by Ariana Franklin.  It's for a book club we just recently restarted, so it's a book a friend chose for all of us to read.  It is set during medieval times.  Four children in Cambridgeshire England have been murdered, and the King of England, Henry, calls on his cousin, The King of Sicily, whose subjects include the best medical experts of the day.  The best doctor (similar to a medical examiner) happens to be a female, so she must hide the fact that she is the doctor because only a man would be accepted as a doctor in England.  While she and her party are in England, the killer strikes again.  I won't give any more of the story away.  It's pretty good!  I'm over halfway, and I haven't been reading it very long.

I read whenever I get the chance, and definitely every night before bed.  I recently purchased Three Minute Devotionals, and I like to read that first each night.  Happy reading!


  1. I love that series. The only sad thing so don't read if you don't want to know. The author died several years ago so no more books in the series.

  2. Saw this on Should Be Reading. The cover art for the book is really lovely. And sometimes, especially when I'm not too familiar with the author, I buy a book because I got attracted to the cover & the book description was interesting as well.

    This one looks interesting too. :)

  3. This one is new to me...thanks for sharing!

  4. What a great sounding historical book - You can't beat a bit of King Henry :-)
