    1 thought on “The Lady Flirts with Death

    1. How much sleuthing can a princess imprisoned in the Tower of London actually accomplish? Not a lot, as it turns out, but she can put her brilliant mind to work and advise her old friend how he might save an unjustly accused rogue from execution. In The Lady Flirts with Death, the third outing in the Simon and Elizabeth mystery series, author Peg Herring places Elizabeth in the background and brings Simon and his wife to the fore. Simon has acquired an apothecary shop of his own and a smart, lovi [...]

    2. Great historical mystery!This fast-paced journey through 16th Century England reintroduces characters well-developed in earlier novels, providing Lady Elizabeth with credible detective reasoning, even while in prison. Her loyal friend, Simon Maldon, with an apothecary’s scientific curiosity, not only attempts to help her escape, but explores helping a friend framed for murder. The two plots intertwine with vivid imagery and meticulous details to bring the time period to life.This historical am [...]

    3. It's always funny with these books. I have read the first two written and now this oned as always, I have the hardest time getting into them, when all of a sudden WHAM I can't stop reading. Peg Herring certainly has a way with words and making you feel like you are walking the streets with Simon. The only thing I didn't care for this time around was the lack of Her Highness, Elizabeth. The title is Her Highness Flirts with Death, yet the story barely deals with anything to do with Elizabeth Tudo [...]

    4. Its been a while again. Mary has become queen, the whole interlude of Jane Grey only mentioned to explain the current situation. Elizabeth is in the Tower as is Robin Dudley. Simon wearing the cassock gained in the first book and using a modified pass written by the long dead Henry, sneaks in to hear confession aka visit his friend. While there he runs into the recently arrested Peto the Pope. Peto was framed for the particular crime and so Simon tries to help them both. Venturing into Southwark [...]

    5. The third in the Simon & Elizabeth series. Princess Elizabeth is being held in the Tower of London because she is just too threatening to the current regime. Simon is her clever employee who discovers that a friend Pepo has been arrested for a murder he did not commit. In the meantime, his wife Hannah has rescued a pregnant orphan girl with her own issues. There may be a few too many coincidences in resolving the plot. I couldn't decide. Well written, however.

    6. A quick pleasant read. Third in a series, but you could read it as a stand-alone. One drawback: parts of words are blurry/illegible on some interior page margins. You can figure out what they are but heyoppy publishing company quality control?

    7. This one was my favorite in the series by far. Love Queen E's character even though she played a minor role in this book compared to the others.

    8. Really enjoy this series. This one did not have so much Elizabeth in it, however the story was really good. Really hoping there are more to come.
