Uneasy Lies the Crown follows last year’s excellent, A Death in St. Petersburg. This time, Lady Emily and Colin are trying to keep the (very) new king safe from possible threats. There have been several murders, with each corpse dressed as an historical king. Is this meant as a direct threat to Bertie or is there something else going on?
In tandem with this plot is a story set in the 1400s. This is the tale of a brave knight who fights for his king and of his relationship with his wife. This earlier historical tale is connected with Colin’s ancestors.
This book will be welcomed by those who read each book by Tasha Alexander as it comes out. That having been said, I thought that last year’s entry was stronger. I look forward to seeing what comes next. Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this read.
