Chapman, the pedlar, accidentally gets involved in murder and mayhem, while struggling to rejuvenate his wife's love, which has waned as a result of too many births. Not quite skilled at either endeavor, he nevertheless leads us through an interesting tale. One of my favorite parts of the book are the varied descriptions of birth control methods, and the midsummer rose tradition.

Near death experiences, not-so-secret trysts, underground passageways, midsummer feasting, false accusations and a sketchy apothecary make for a fun read. I think the last for me though, for a while. I still really enjoy this series, but I've read like a million in a row ok, five? Besides, my New Year's resolution was to read more of what I already have on my bookshelves. Oct 18, Sue rated it it was ok. I like the time period, but it seemed very drawn out to me.
The mystery of the kings and brothers--not very intersting. The investigations on the town level and their people were more interesting, I thought. Dec 30, Sarah Hearn rated it really liked it.
As usual, a good plot, care taken with the history, a good resolution. Kate Sedley always remembers to reintroduce characters, and the ones you know are carried over from other books so it's sort of like meeting old friends.
