    more from this reviewer

    amusing

    It's a neat little read. I will definitely read the others in the series. It's not very demanding. Just the right thing to read for diversion! :) Wonderful.

    Surprisingly Entertaining

    This book is set in the fifteenth century, when women were considered chattel and men believed they ran things. The irony was that Queens ruled the world at this time. Susanna is a Lady, wealthy in her own right and yet must ask her husband's permission to spend her own money or travel away from home. She is somewhat of an expert on herbs and poisons and is writing a manual to keep others from accidental poisonings. While her husband is in France on a mission for the Queen, Susanna travels north to his ancestral home after she receives a letter from her husband's lawyer that reports of a ghost sighting that resulted in the manager being found dead, face down in his pie, and all the other servants running off from the manor in fright. A handful of her faithful servants accompany her to Appleton Manor, along with her devoted but opinionated maid, Jennet.
    Face down is a light hearted mystery with enough history and action thrown in to keep you reading. The dialogue was funny in many places and the formal relationship between herself and her "traveling for the Queen, husband" is priceless.
    I intend to download the next book in the series to see what other trouble Susanna gets up to.

    Elizabethan mysteries

    While there are certainly enough Elizabethan mysteries to choose from you wouldn't regret reading these. Somewhat truer to the period characterwise than others and just as entertaining. I will enjoy going on my next jaunt wth Susannah.
