Fiona Buckley’s Ursula Blanchard series is one of my top five favorite mystery series. I love Ursula’s smarts and independence and resilience, and the historical background during Elizabeth I’s reign is really well done too. Now the ninth book in the series, Queen Without a Crown, has dropped to $1.99 at Kindle and Kobo US, and it’s discountable at Kobo US. The later titles in the series tend to bounce up and down in price fairly often, but never stay on sale for very long, so grab this one now (April 14, 2021) if you want it.
There is a fair amount of backstory by the time of this ninth title, but I think Buckley does a pretty good job of making sure you know what you need to know, so it could be read as a stand-alone. Sadly, most of the titles in this series tend to be pretty expensive most of the time, so if you like this one, that’s not conducive to being able to binge read the series – sigh! But keep an eye out here, and I’ll post new price drops in the comments if/when I see them.
