RT Rating

Hess' latest is a wonderfully written cozy filled with well-developed characters and nonstop suspense. The Renaissance fair of Farberville, Ark., comes brilliantly to life when murders occur and the suspects are more than plentiful.

When a Renaissance fair comes to town, Arkansas bookstore owner Claire is amused. But when Edward, one of the actors, insists that he has come to Farberville to find his dad, Claire believes that her deceased husband, Carlton, may have fathered him before their marriage.

The mystery heats up when Angie, another fair participant, dies in a house fire. As Claire investigates the mystery surrounding her death, she
and her daughter take part in the Renaissance fair -- where they
stumble upon yet another murder.
