Wine of Violence by Priscilla Royal

Wine of Violence: A Medieval Mystery #1: An Historical Mystery (Medieval Mysteries) - Priscilla Royal

Series: Eleanor of Tyndal Medieval Mystery #1

 

I liked the idea of this novel, but something about it didn’t really work for me. I liked Eleanor and Thomas and the rest of the characters, but the writing seemed a bit clumsy. It just didn’t flow all that well, and I found the first-person POV chapters for Eleanor juxtaposed with third-person POV chapters for Thomas weird. The mystery was only so-so. I’m not sure I’ll pick up the next one.
