    1. Murder in the Queen’s Garden is the third book in the Elizabethan Mystery Series by Amanda Carmack. It is 1559 and Elizabeth has been on the throne for six months, enjoying summer parties at Nonsuch Palace, where in 1541 famed astrologer to King Henry, Dr. Timothy Macey disappeared. Astrology and horoscopes are as much the rage as masquerades, pageants, banquets, hunts, and games. When the body of Dr. Macey is discovered and then that of another astrologer, the queen calls on her personal lute [...]


    2. Loved this book! I'm reading them out of order so I can't wait to read the first 2 in the series next!! Highly recommend!


    3. It's super dangerous to be Kate's friend!This book wasn't my favorite in the series, but it was still a pleasant read and I continue to enjoy Kate and Elizabeth. The continuing development of Kate's relationship with (view spoiler)[her extended Boleyn family, both with Elizabeth and (in this book) with her cousins the children of Mary Boleyn (hide spoiler)] is interesting. It still feels a bit like fanfiction (insert beautiful talented young lady into historical setting and make all the cool peo [...]



    4. Sexual Content Rating: NoneLanguage Content Rating: NoneViolent Content Rating: MinimalMurder in the Queen’s Garden is the third book in the Elizabethan mystery series by Amanda Carmack. Set in the 1500’s this series focuses on Kate Haywood, Queen Elizabeth’s personal musician, who also doubles as a secret investigator for the queen.While the summer parties, games and masquerades are abundant, there is an undercurrent of mystery and deception, starting with the mysterious disappearance of [...]


    5. The third in the Elizabethan Mystery series where a court musician serves double duty as Queen Elizabeth's spy and plot thwarter. I am starting to question how Kate's secret duties are staying secret given how many people she has said the Queen sent me to, but nonetheless the mysteries are entertaining. This book starts with the death of Catherine Howard and the court astrologer some twenty years previously. As the court returns to the scene of the court astrologer's disappearance at Nonsuch alo [...]


    6. I was sent this book to review and it is the first in this series that I have read. I don’t know that I would have picked it out for myself. Actually, I know I wouldn’t have. Historical mysteries aren’t something I normally read. That being said, I’m very happy I was given the chance to read MURDER IN THE QUEEN’S GARDEN. It was an enjoyable detour from my normal modern day cozy mystery reads. This was a very well written, interesting mystery, with much intrigue and a great plot. Every [...]


    7. Kate is back in this tale set at Nonsuch Palace, and what a thrilling ride it is.I can't fault Amanda, she immerses the reader into the Elizabethan period seamlessly. Her descriptions are corking, and as a reader I am loving this series. What is particularly great about it, is the back story running through it, using characters from history that have only ever been touched on. This time the storyline centres around a mystery occurring during the reign of Henry VIII and his then queen Catherine H [...]


    8. Kate Haywood is back in this 3rd book in Amanda Carmack's Elizabethan Mystery series. This time she is traveling on the Queen's tour of her new kingdom, following her coronation. She is staying at Nonsuch Palace, which was built by Elizabeth's father Henry VIII, but is not standing today. It is a magical location and ideal for a summer idyll, but the magic may also spell danger when the case of a long missing royal astrologer rears its head. It is a perfect location for all the intrigue raised b [...]


    9. The books are all pretty much the same. There is some kind festival,dancing etc and a plot to overthrow queen. There is a murder ,Kate overhears something investigates ,gets hurt and is still not acknowledged by the queen as her cousin ,despite being almost killed in every book. Meanwhile the lukewarm Anthony and timid Rob go back and forth on their unrequited feelings for Kate whom her self seems to be oblivious to everything but music and mayhem.


    10. In August 1559, Queen Elizabeth is on her first progress, and stops at Nonsuch, once one of her father's palaces. Accompanying her is her personal musician, young Kate Haywood, who quickly notices odd occurrences and a strange atmosphere in the air. And when she nearly stumbles over a body in the maze, Kate becomes personally involved in solving murders both past and present.


    11. I enjoyed this entry in the series. Kate is a good detective, and her unusual family ties make her odd role more likely. The palace of Nonsuch is legendary in English history, and it's nice to see such lavish descriptions of it.


    12. A new adventure for Kate Always well written and cleverly plotted, Amanda Carmack's novels are always satisfying. The history is good, or as good as a historical novel can offer. I am a fan.


    13. Well written. Narrative smooth and easy to follow. Love the Tudor period setting. I love the Dr Dee references as well as his mentor. Would like more novels with his characters included. Who-done-it that kept me guessing. Good Read!


    14. It took me almost a quarter of the book before I was able to get into the story but when I did I really enjoyed it. It was great to read the way the characters interacted, the mores of the time and how the main character struggled against some of them. Interesting.


    15. Another excellent historical whodunit starring Kate, the musician to Queen Elizabeth. Great details, love that the author is so clever at revealing the darker sides of court as well as the fun and fancy decor side.


    16. Generally I like historical novels, and love Good Queen Bess, but this one - just couldn't get involved in the mystery, or the characters.However, the historical setting was excellent, and Dr. Dee the astrologer as a serious advisor was also well done.


    17. I really enjoyed this book, not just for the mystery, but for the descriptions about daily life during the reign of Elizabeth I. This was a great addition to this series and I am looking forward to reading the next one.



    18. I like this series. I like the heroine. But I don't know if I can read any more of the books because the love triangle is just Shades of Twilight. Frustrating.



    19. it took awhile for me to get into this book but about half way through it became very intriguing. I enjoyed the way the story played out and was happy how it concluded.



    20. This was an enjoyable mystery. It is the third book in the series and I have not yet read books one and two. The catch-up parts were a bit cumbersome.





    21. I enjoy this series because of the characters and the historical aspect. I will continue reading and enjoying this series.


    22. Just doesn't hold my interest. The middle just drags for me. The last four chapters are great resolutions and interesting, but not so much to compensate
