#131: India Black and the Widow of Windsor - Carol K. Carr


Black is back-Her Majesty's favorite spy is off to Scotland in this new adventure to ensure the Queen doesn't end up getting killed.
When Queen Victoria attends a séance, the spirit of her departed husband, Prince Albert, insists she spend Christmas at their Scottish home in Balmoral. Prime Minister Disraeli suspects the Scottish nationalists plan to assassinate the Queen-and sends the ever resourceful India and the handsome British spy, French, to the Scottish highlands.
French will take the high road, looking for a traitor among the guests-and India will take the low road, disguised as a servant in case an assassin is hiding among the household staff. India is certain that someone at Balmoral is determined to make this Her Majesty's last Christmas...

MY REVIEW OF INDIA BLACK (Book 1)













My Opinion:
I really loved India, when I read the first book, I could remember she was such a strong woman that I admired while reading.
This second book was along the same lines, but different as well. I have to admit, I enjoyed the story in the first book better just a little bit, but because it was that feeling when introduced to such a great character.
This story was a great escape, filled with a great mystery, even though I had it right all along to a degree. Still it had unpredictability too and I was happy with the ending.
I do have to ask Carol, what are you planning next? I sure would like to know what she will do with the gift French gave her in the end of the book. (You all will have to read the book to have an understanding of what I'm talking about.)


5/5


Recommend? Yes, but read book 1 first!

  1. Freda, thanks for awarding me all those stars! Next up for India and French is an assignment in London, infiltrating a band of foreign anarchists. French's gift may turn out to be quite a useful one.

  2. Great review, Freda! I am going to admit that I like mysteries that I can actually get right. I really feel dumb when I find out I have come up with this totally crazy, and wrong, conclusion, lol.

How Reading Helps Your Brain

The brain is one of the most complex biological structures that scientists and doctors have ever encountered. It is like a machine that runs non-stop that has the computing power to be able to make very complex decisions and experience unexplainable phenomena like emotions. The brain controls every other organ in the body so it is arguably the most important one. Unfortunately, probably due to its brilliance, it is a fairly vulnerable structure that can and does degrade over time.

There are also a number of nutrients that are very important to maintaining a healthy brain and preventing its decline.
