This is the first book in Emerson's "Mistress Jaffrey" series. Readers who like Fiona Buckley's "Ursula Blanchard" series may enjoy this series as it also features espionage and intrigue circling the court of Elizabeth I. Emerson draws on several historical events, and adds a major subplot involving Rosamund Jaffrey's husband Rob, who is in trouble at the court of mad Tsar Ivan the Terrible. Overall, a good read, but the author oversells the main character's smarts and spy-experience and then has her act impulsively, possibly to move the plot forward. Reminds me of the heroine of "The Scarlet Pimpernel" who "is the most intelligent woman in Europe" but never notices that her husband is sneaking off to France to rescue nobles from the guillotine... well, perhaps the 2nd and 3rd volumes of Emerson's series will paint Rosamund's character more consistently.
