A Murder at Rosamund’s Gate by Susanna Calkins

Posted by


Lucy Campion is a seventeenth century chambermaid with a very simple life…She does her chores for her master, the magistrate, and keeps a low profile. When a gruesome murder occurs nearby and no one knows who could be the murderer, and her closest friend, a lady’s maid who has designs on Lucy’s brother, turns up missing, and Lucy’s brother is arrested for the crime, she decides to take it upon herself to find the clues that the officials have missed in the case.

With the help of Adam, the son of the magistrate, and a few helpful sources along the way, Lucy is starting to put together the pieces, slowly but surely…But not before the plague strikes her household and throws her completely off the scent. Will she discover who killed the servant girls before the killer realizes that she is on his track? Is the killer right under her nose?

This is a historical mystery, and anyone who enjoys these novels, like The Hangman in the Mirror by Kate CayleyThe Midwife’s Revolt by Jodi Daynard , or ‘An Unmarked Grave’ by Charles Todd, or anything in the historical mystery realm (Anne Perry, etc), you won’t want to miss this novel, which is easy to read and a great choice for your next weekend at home.
