    One thought on “The Fatal Fashione”

    1. #8 in Karen Harper's Elizabeth I Mysteries Series. This book deals with the introduction of starched neck ruffs in the Queen's kingdom. She sets the fashion with her outfits and clothing designs and her court (and eventually her subjects) adopt her fashion trends. But with the introduction of starch (to make the ruffs' curves stand firmly on their own), has come cutthroat competition in that industry. That, and the drowning of a young woman in her own starch vat, brings the Queen's amateur sleut [...]

    2. I'm biased because I adore this particular genre and time period, and I thoroughly enjoyed this entire series of books by Karen Harper. They are written very similarly to Fiona Buckley's Ursla Blanchard Mysteries. almost confusingly so. This series focuses on Queen Elizabeth I, herself, solving the murders of her subjects. Absolutely fictitious activities frequent the books (Elizabeth leaving the castle in disguise to chase down clues and criminals). But, this is why it is Historical "Fiction". [...]

    3. Before I became fully immersed in history, I was a historical-fiction buff (and still read such books from time-to-time). Karen Harper's books tend to keep me entertained while still learning factual information, but sadly: not this time. The Elizabeth Mystery series is slightly to elementary and hardly provides a Tudor insight. Basically, it is more of a "regular, old fiction" book but merely with Elizabeth cast as the lead role. Think of this as mindless entertainment: good to read if you want [...]

    4. Queen Elizabeth is at it again. This time someone is killing off people who have something to do with the new fashions, the starched collars. Instead of leaving it for the professionals, she has to get involved and risk her life. It's fascinating how even fashions were controversial to the church now and still can be today.

    5. I have loved this series from the beginning, and this was the last one I had to read. Another great read, loved every second of it. I tell you what, the scene with the young girls on the river was totally book gripping, can't put this down, oh no, what's gonna happen next. Harper keeps you guessing on who the killer is.

    6. This was a terrifically told story that I enjoyed very much. I loved all the Elizabeth I mysteries by Karen Harper. I don't believe she's writing them any more, which is sad. She really drove me into seeking more about Elizabeth I.

    7. This isn't brand new, and I'm working through the series. If you like strong characters in history as detectives, this is a good series and well researched.

    8. I liked this series at first but now it is pretty much the same thing every book. Probably won't read next book.

    9. I have been very impressed with this series by Karen Harper. This was another good mystery with history woven in skillfully.

    10. Kind of a silly idea, I know, the queen of England as an amateur detective. But still, it was a fun light read and I was actually surprised that I enjoyed it as much as I did.

    11. A mystery set in Elizabethan England with Elizabeth I as the "detective". Right. If you can get over that you may like the book.
