I liked the unique premise of this book. Queen Elizabeth has to solve the mysteries from the background without looking like she is solving the mystery. She has her staff find information for her based on her judge of character and she puts it in the way of the investigators to put them on the path to the correct answer. I like how she was treated as an elderly woman by some who didn’t realize that even though she is old, she has a sharp mind. I also enjoyed her relationship with Prince Phillip. I was saddened to hear of his passing this morning.
“Because when you consider them, fairy tales always have dark forces at their heart. Evil lurks where we most desire it not to be, and evil often wins.”
“She set her face grimly to the drizzle and prepared to be patronized.”
Overall, I greatly enjoyed The Windsor Knot. It had a great mystery, characters and premise. I look forward to the next book in this great new series.
