Can't-Wait Wednesday: Dark Queen Rising by Paul Doherty

Can't-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Wishful Endings, to spotlight and talk about the books we're excited about that we have yet to read. It's based on Waiting On Wednesday hosted at Breaking the Spine.


Dark Queen Rising by Paul Doherty
Expected publication: June 29th 2018 (UK) - October 1st 2018 (US)

First in a brand-new historical mystery series featuring Margaret Beaufort, mother of King Henry VII and matriarch of the Tudor dynasty.

May, 1471. The Wars of the Roses are reaching their bitter and bloody climax. Edward of York has claimed the English throne, and his supporters are extracting a savage revenge on all who supported the Lancastrian cause. Surrounded by enemies wherever she turns, the position of Margaret Beaufort, Countess of Richmond and mother to Henry Tudor, the last remaining hope of the House of Lancaster, is precarious to say the least.

Determined to protect her son whatever it takes, Margaret must rely on her sharp-witted clerk Christopher Ulswicke to be her eyes and ears. When four bodies are discovered in a London tavern, their throats slit, and Margaret herself is suspected of being behind the crime, it’'s up to Ulswicke to prove his mistress' innocence and unmask the real killer.


I recently discovered this book and the synopsis instantly hooked me. It's a historical mystery about Margaret Beaufort, mother of King Henry VII. It just sounds so amazing!! ♥

    1. Yes, but sadly enough it's pretty expensive on TBD... 22€! So might wait when it's a little cheaper to buy it.
