    2. Kate Sedley captivates us with her Roger the Chapman mysteries Interesting characters placed in England during the late middle ages enhances the read In this mystery, Roger, a traveling trader, stays at a monastery with three wealthy men from his home town The monastery s vault remained sealed for over one hundred fifty years when the mystery begins with the vault violated and nobody knows what is missing The action in flows easily, but the plot was too obvious Regardless I enjoyed the quick rea [...]


    3.

    4. This new book in the Roger the Chapman series which I have been reading for years turned up on the hold shelf for me just as I started re reading The Daughter of Time for a book discussion They are set in exactly the same time and concern themselves with the accession to the throne of Richard III and the rumor of the disappearance of the Princes in the Tower This series of historical mysteries has a much kindlier view of Richard than does Shakespeare perhaps influenced by Tey s work and though h [...]

    6. I have read all of the Roger Chapman books, so when I begin a new one it takes me awhile to get beyond the part that brings new readers up to speed on the characters I always feel a bit bored until the plot gets under way, and then I get hooked and once again enjoy the novel Sedley does a nice job of weaving the history of the monarchy into the lives of her book s characters They are always interesting reads on several levels.


    7. Roger Chapman has been teetering on the edge of some major events in history over the past few books, and finally his patron is King Richard, with all the upheaval of the Little Princes in the Tower coming on An interesting mystery although a little contrived, connecting current to Roger events with the distant English past Can t wait to see how Sedley gets Roger and his newly larger family through to the Tudor era


    8. Once again, Kate Sedley provides us with an excellent mystery featuring Roger the Chapman This time he attempts to discern what has been stolen from Tintern Abbey, as well as who murdered his traveling companion and has committed the attempted break ins of all those who happened to be at Tintern Abbey at the time of the robbery What was stolen and why Does the robbery have anything to do with the Tudor Conspiracy


    9. 3.5 stars for memoving right along to the following book in the series The Christmas Wassail.These two latest books in Roger the Chapman series have familiar ring to me, but when I read earlier books in the series I was not tracking my books on so have no idea which of the books I read I don t love the books enough to retrace.


    10. Not a bad little mystery, if they gave half stars 3 1 2 not great, but an entertaining read This is set against the background of the events of Richard III s first year, including the rebellion of the Duke of Buckingham and the rumors about the Princes in the Tower


    11. I love all the Roger the Chapman books, and this one is no different The descriptions of life, especially for the lower classes, under the Lancastrian and Yorkist Kings are so vivid.



    12. A typical Roger the Chapman mystery Sedley as always provides an entertaining read with a satisfactory conclusion.


    13. This is another good offering in a great series Good light reading, strong characterisation, and a little bit of humour Delightful.
