The Good Knight (A Gareth and Gwen Medieval Mystery) by Sarah Woodbury

The Good Knight (A Gareth and Gwen Medieval Mystery) by Sarah Woodbury

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:
From Medieval Mysteries (medieval mysteries.com):
Something a little different here, not so much in the plot as in the characters and setting. The plot is typical medieval murder mystery which, for those of us who can’t get enough of it, is good news not bad (as long as it is well written, which this is).  

However, the setting in 12th-century North Wales – Gwynedd – is so convincing that it’s as if you have left 12th-century Paris and London and York … and travelled to another country where everything is strange and – as I say, different. 

An enthralling story, sympathetic characters and a visit to another time, another culture. What more can you ask of an author?___________

Intrigue, suspicion, and rivalry among the royal princes casts a shadow on the court of Owain, king of north Wales…
The year is 1143 and King Owain seeks to unite his daughter in marriage with an allied king. But when the groom is murdered on the way to his wedding, the bride’s brother tasks his two best detectives–Gareth, a knight, and Gwen, the daughter of the court bard–with bringing the killer to justice.

And once blame for the murder falls on Gareth himself, Gwen must continue her search for the truth alone, finding unlikely allies in foreign lands, and ultimately uncovering a conspiracy that will shake the political foundations of Wales.

The Good Knight is the first of the Gareth and Gwen Medieval Mysteries.  Other books in the series include a prequel novella, The Bard’s Daughter and two novels: The Uninvited Guest and The Fourth Horseman, available now.

Matty’s up to something – Dave knows that much. Just as he knows that Matty needs help, so of course he’ll provide it, just as he has all her life. Doing what’s best for Matty is second nature. Even when it comes to marrying her in name only. Although he can’t resist one hot-blooded kiss after the I-dos.

Maybe – just maybe – his Matty will become more to him than Almost a Bride.
