Dance for A Dead Princess by Deborah Hawkins
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
What did you think about the setting of the book? Burnham was the perfect place for a story like this. Its dark past and current suspicious circumstances provide readers with twists and turns that keep you guessing about the outcome for the characters. This was a wonderful book filled with harrowing experiences and exciting surprises.
Who were the characters that stood out in the book? (may include spoiler) Nicholas Carey was the Duke Of Burham. and the second richest man in England. His wife fell and died at Burnham abbey. He also had a ward named Lucy who was in a boarding school but was expelled. Because of his previous experiences at Burnham, he wanted to sell the place. Taylor was a law partner and she was overseeing the sale of Burnham which is when things get really interesting. There was a secret tape made by Princess Diana before her death and in a last minute attempt to keep more secrets from surfacing, Betty was going to kill the Nicholas & Taylor
What was the mystery was and how it was solved? The mystery was the history of two women’s deaths. There were journals which told the real story but these were not discovered until Burnham was being sold and then it is revelation after revelation. Highly recommended.
