🌟Apologies for the late post. I had a scheduling mishap.🌟
A 17th-century whodunnit – It’s 1653 and Lady Jane Tremayne has inherited the estate of her late husband.
When a young woman is raped, as Lady of the Manor, Jane decides to investigate, assisted by her closest friend, Lady Olivia Courtney. Then the stakes are raised when the rapist strikes again.
More than just a whodunnit, this is an absorbing tale of a brave woman living in dangerous and unique times.
Ravishment is an intriguing start to a historical mystery series. It’s set in 17th Century England, and James Walker did a marvelous job transporting the reacer back in time. This felt very well researched, which added to the realistic feeling.
I enjoyed the first person narrative. It helped me feel part of the story and it also allowed me to really get to know the characters, time period. It was immersive.
Love how quickly paced this novel is. I couldn’t guess the mystery and it was really well written.
Give this one a shot.
*I received a free copy of this book from Random Things Tours in exchange for an honest review on the blog tour. All opinions are my own and unbiased.*
Retired lawyer, and still active charity worker, living in Kent,with a keen interest in
European history, who’s published six novels including Aliza, my love and Ravishment.
My first book, Ellen’s Gold is a historical drama set in the early nineteenth century
This was followed by My Enemy, my love set in the First World War and I think he
was George, a drama also set in that era. I then published Shamila, a story of
forbidden love between a Moslem and a non-Moslem, set in the near future, before
in the last year publishing Ravishment, which is whodunnit, set in 17th century
England. Finally, this was followed by Aliza, my love, which is set in Nazi Germany.
