Sex A Novel of the Stuarts Book 3 by Jean Plaidy That is a good book to nderstand the complexities of the case and get a firm grasp of the basic events That one was written long and is a part of her Stuart novels Plaidy That one was written long ago and a part of her Stuart novels Plaidy written about any English Monarch since William the conueror but her books never read like thrillers The poison Bed does It really reminded me of Gone Girl in that regard I love the twists in this work and all together love all of her books Such a great way to bring history alive This is a fabulous read as well as being a handsome book to hold It s an intriguing story cleverly woven by the author into a double account of the tale with interesting chapters of Him and Her It s a page turner with much to think about as their are many twists the reader has to grapple with It s a real treat and beautifully written ECFremantle has really got into her stride and I look forward to reading from her in the future I remember reading Anne Somerset s excellent history book Unnatural Murder years ago so I was looking forward to this fictional retelling of the same events The scandalous poisoning which occurred during the reign of James I and for which one of the King s favourites was accused is ideal material for an historical thrillerso it was greatly disappointing to discover what a dull read this isThe story doesn t even get going Passing the Louisiana LEAP Grade 8 in Science until well over two hundred pages in and even then it hardlyalifies as thrilling The dialogue is anachronistic the characterisation vague and two dimensional and the writing is often confusing sudden shifts in location in who is speaking names introduced with little explanation I knew the basic facts and I still found myself lost at times I m sorry to say that I cannot recommend this if you are interested in the historical case which inspired this novel I can only Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day urge you to pickp Anne Somerset s Unnatural Murder instead that s a far entertaining read.
