The Fyre Mirror by Karen HarperBook #7 in the 9-book QUEEN ELIZABETH I MYSTERY SERIES.  Smitten with spring fever, the queen escapes London for fantastical Nonsuch Palace in the sweet Surrey countryside.  But one of her artists is burned to death and the queen’s portraits are going up in flames.  Has the arsonist been sent by foreign foes or is it someone in her own court?  Time is running out, because the enemy who stalks the queen means to destroy not only her portraits and artists but her life.

“A truly vibrant protagonist, thoroughly satisfying characterization, attention to detail, and credible plotting mark this as an outstand historical.”–Library Journal

THE FYRE MIRROR is available from Audible.
