In 1558 England, Kate Haywood, a simple musician in the employ of a princess, will find herself involved in games of crowns as she sets out to solve the murder of the queen's envoy. England is in tumult under the rule of Queen Mary and her Spanish husband. Confined to house arrest at Hatfield House, young Princess Elizabeth is the country€́™s greatest hope. Far from court intrigues, Elizabeth finds solace in simple things: the quiet countryside and peaceful recreation, including the melodies of her chief musician and his daughter, Kate Haywood. But Kate will prove herself most valuable when an envoy of the queen--sent to flush out heretics in the princess's household--is found dead on the grounds of Hatfield. Acting as Elizabeth's eyes and ears, Kate is sent out on the trail of a killer whose mission could destroy her family, friends--nd the future of England.

I found this to be a strong start to the series. It set up the world in a such a way that left me wanting to read more. Kate is an interesting protagonist and any Tudor-lovers will enjoy her relationship with the young Princess Elizabeth and the court politics and intrigue throughout.
