This was a good read, though I didn't enjoy it quite as much as the previous book. ( )

A fast read but this second book in Ann Swinfen's Oxford Medieval mystery series wasn't a mystery at all. Instead, it was a more of a romantic suspense story involving why Emma Thorgold (whom we met in the first book) was forced into the convent by her stepfather.

I enjoyed the historical fiction (especially the bit with the candle makers) but was disappointed with the direction the series seems to be taking. ( )
