    Historic intrigue, scandalous debauchery, and ice cream...How could it get any better. I'm a huge fan of Anthony Capella and eagerly await each new novel. This one doesn't disappoint. He has the power to take you to that time and space through the words without the language weighing it down and making it burdensome.(like that sentence) The main characters Louise and Carlo are worlds apart and yet the story brings them together as French spies sent from the Sun King to convert King Charles II to Catholicism. In usual Capella style, the book is sprinkled with recipes from an ancient cookbook dedicated to the making of "ices." He does excellent research into the time and real characters of the time which I think makes for a most rich read.
