The Serpent's Tale by Ariana Franklin

I enjoyed this one nearly as much as the first one, The Mistress of the Art of Death. In this book, Adelia did not use her skills as a mistress of the art of death, but her powers of observation and keen intelligence were in play. I liked the sense of time and place, medieval England. She captures the atmosphere of life during this time, especially for women and for the underclass who were at the mercy those above them.The mystery was not as engaging and the second half of the book seemed to drag a little. Even so, I liked it a lot. Now looking for the third in the series!
I liked this review

I haven't heard of this one or of The Mistress of the Art of Death. I'm off to Amazon to read more.
