Online Review for Face Down Beside St. Anne's Well

Judy Harrison of the Bangor (ME) Daily News recently reviewed the latest mystery by Kathy Lynn Emerson, Face Down Beside St. Anne's Well, the ninth novel in her Lady Appleton series.

Harrison writes, "In most of her books, who committed the crime is secondary to the interaction between the characters and to the everyday minutiae of Elizabethan England. In many of Emerson's stories, the personal intrigue is played out against the political backdrop that often threatened the Virgin Queen's reign. Her latest, thank goodness, is no exception."

She adds, "Emerson does her best work in this series when she remembers that Lady Appleton is the sun the other characters circle as they spin, sometimes out of control, in their own orbits. Face Down Beside St. Anne's Well is among Emerson's best because she puts the emphasis on her core characters who have aged, changed and grown since they first appeared in Face Down in the Marrow-Bone Pie, set in 1559."
