A lady is betrayed and a dog delivers a dark message. Will she solve the mystery traveling through the lands of Knights, bullies and outlaws. She’ll need to find help but who will she trust.
Lindsay Townsend writes great mysteries set in medieval time true to the period with characters full of hope and promise. I hope you check out her books and travel back in time from the comfort of your arm chair.
I’m enjoying a mystery thriller that makes you think of things that go bump in the night and laugh out loud at some at Kathy Reichs’s witticisms in her book “Deja Dead”. I like the audiobook so the narrator Barbara Rosenblat is also a favorite of mine. It’s like listening to a one woman play very well done.

Take some time today to begin a new book and take an arm chair journey to places near and far.
Reading is fundamental to leaning about the world around you and the many personalities all around you.
The medieval period city life becomes reality as the story unfolds. Isabella has been used first by her family then by her dead husband’s family – she is a commodity to them.
The writing brought me into the city with it’s dirty streets and how little value was placed on the life of a woman. Her young son is taken from her, she’s pressed into servitude and she must choose between getting her son back and pleasing the local marriage prospects.
“Mistress Angel” is a journey through medieval London from the landscape to the characters Lindsay delivers. Raw emotions and agonizing struggles are included in the telling.
I also enjoy finding new phrases and words from the period in Lindsay’s writing. She defines them and uses them as keys to her plot. I liken it to a treasure hunt, always something new in the next chapter.
Will Isabella get her son back? Will she find true love? All will be answered before the last word is read.
I hope you give “Mistress Angel” a look. Great writing, well developed plot and interesting characters, what more could you want in a story?

Why do I recommend “A Summer Bewitchment [The Knight and the Witch 2]”, by Lindsay Townsend?
1. The medieval portions are interesting – so many different worries in that time but in so many ways the same – self doubt doesn’t change no matter which century.
2. The writing is excellent. Lindsay brings her characters to life in the narrative, along with the country side, the horses and the villages.
3. Lindsay tackles prejudices in this tale of class and being different whether it be in how you act or what you look like. I like that those with differences triumph over those that are closed minded.
4. The mystery never fails in engaging my attention. How will the Knight and Witch find the lost girls, will they be safe? All questions are answered as the story unfolds.
5. A secret is disclosed that changes the Knight and Witches relationship.
I so hope that Lindsay will continue the Knight and Witch’s story with a book 3. These characters deserve to have many more adventures. Thank you, Lindsay Townsend for creating a world of adventure and acceptance. I appreciate you share your world of imagination with me. Keep on writing.
