For those that prefer a little History with their Mystery.
A few dead queens is nothing to lose your head about…. The first book of the new series is out and I think you're going to LOVE it!
A decade ago, thieves stole antiquities from a museum display in Paris. The exhibit, titled “The Executed Queens” contained heirlooms belonging to Anne Boleyn, Marie Antoinette, and Mary, the Queen of Scots. No one has seen the relics since.
Giovanni di Caro is an expert on historic books, a pizza snob, and the alleged forger of Galileo’s treatise on astronomy. He’s in a close relationship with Iris Dittmeyer, so he’s understandably apprehensive when he gets a mysterious threatening letter.
A box, book, and a parcel of letters must be restored to their rightful owner. Don’t delay or your queen will meet the same fate as those other charming ladies.
The cryptic message contains an unpleasant revelation for Iris. Finding the stolen items is vital…but so is protecting her heart. When a lead on Anne Boleyn’s book takes them to New York City, they find a cantankerous book dealer slumped over in his wheelchair. Iris and Giovanni are instantly entangled in the drama that follows. As they work to unravel the truth behind his death and locate the missing book, the couple encounter secrets everywhere. Including inside a medieval book of prayers.
The Book of Arcane Secrets is the intriguing first novel in the Executed Queens series.
