Royal really brings her characters to life. However, the limits of the characters sometimes make it obvious who's the culprit.
Rachel Cochran
The writing tends to be repetitious. I've also discovered that I prefer to read the Author's Notes first to better understand how she handles the historical context. So on to the next in the series.
It might be time to take a break from these novels. I find they are getting slightly predictable. Don't get me wrong, I thought this novel was very good but I liked the twists and turns of some of the previous novels.
Stephanie Jewett
People cry a lot in these books. And talk to themselves.
It's interesting how easy it is for the characters to consider the possibility of crimes or other physical acts being done by ghosts or demons.
If you enjoy murder mysteries and books set in a 13th century abbey in England, this is spot-on. A wonderful read also if you've enjoyed Ellis Peters' "Brother Cadfael" series.
This was much better than the third book. The continuing characters grew and changed, setting up the fifth book, soon to be available.

I'm starting to get the formula. There's almost too much misdirection in these books.
John Hanscom
This is a great series, and I have learned a lot of medieval life, as well as following mysteries.
Another in the Eleanor of Tyndal Priory. These just keep getting better.
Another enjoyable read as out trio venture to Amesbury Priory
