OMG, I can’t believe I almost forgot it’s Tuesday!! I have two projects with revisions that just landed on my desk, plus the packing saga continues. But today I have a new book out!!! Book one in my new Elizabethan Mystery series (writing as Amanda Carmack), Murder at Hatfield House. (see it on Amazon here or visit my website for excerpts, historical info, etc)
In the meantime, I am having an Elizabethan Week all week at my own blog! Visit today to vote on your favorite Elizabeth on film….
Do you read many historical mysteries?? What are your favorites?
I’m off to order my copy of Murder at Hatfield House right now!!! Whoo hoo, Amanda!!!!
Congrats on the release! I loved the series that began with Mistress of the Art of Death by the late Ariana Franklin–brilliant stuff. Generally if I find myself asking “Why don’t you test for fingerprints” I know the book has failed and it makes me leery of historical mysteries.
I’m ordering Murder at Hatfield House super pronto!
I absolutely adore historical mysteries of every period. I tend to read mostly British-set historical mysteries, but I have a couple of American-set authors as well. I love C.J Sansom (Tudor), C.S. Harris (Regency), Ashley Gardner (Regency), Nancy Bilyeau (Tudor), Tasha Alexander (Victorian), Anne Perry (Victorian), Susanna Gregory (medieval and 17th century) , Bernard Knight (medieval), Alan Gordon (medieval), Michael Jecks, (medieval) Paul Harding/PC Doherty, (mostly medieval but other periods including Tudor, ancient Egypt) Sharon Kay Penman (medieval) and Edward Marston, (several periods including medieval and Victorian) to name a few!
Give me a historical mystery with romance and I’m in bliss!
Janet, I’ve often found myself wishing I could just have them dust for fingerprints when I get in a plotting jam 🙂
Debora, I love many of those books you listed, and have a few more on my TBR list! I’ve also enjoyed Sharan Newman’s medievals and Carola Dunn’s 1920s books…
