Genre: Adult, Mystery, Historical Fiction
Source: I received a copy to facilitate my review. The opinions expressed here are my own.
This is the fifth book in this series. I have not read the first four. However, this clearly read as a stand-alone book. One of my favorite genres is mystery. Take that genre and add in a historical time period and I am all set. Will Rees is one of those people who tries to always do the right thing. This makes him a target of some in his town. His wife is pregnant and accused of witchcraft. Two people, he has argued with have ended up dead. Someone seems to be going to a lot of trouble to set him up. Who is it and why?
Reese is a weaver by trade. He has one son from his first marriage that ended with his wife's death. His second wife is pregnant. They have adopted five other children. Now that someone has tried to set his family up, Reese helps his family flee then returns to figure this mystery out.
The author has done a lot of research into this time period. It is quite evident in her writing. She has also created characters that are very believable. I loved the way this story carried me along from beginning to end. I definitely need to check out the first four books in this series. I have found a new author to love
