Book 1, The Gareth & Gwen Medieval Mysteries
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
Join medieval sleuths Gareth & Gwen in their first mystery together--the first novel in a ten novel series, appropriate for teens to adults.
Intrigue, suspicion, and rivalry among the royal princes casts a shadow on the court of Owain, king of north Wales...
The year is 1143 and King Owain seeks to unite his daughter in marriage with an allied king. But when the groom is murdered on the way to his wedding, the bride's brother tasks his two best detectives--Gareth, a knight, and Gwen, the daughter of the court bard--with bringing the killer to justice.
And once blame for the murder falls on Gareth himself, Gwen must continue her search for the truth alone, finding unlikely allies in foreign lands, and ultimately uncovering a conspiracy that will shake the political foundations of Wales.
The Good Knight is the first Gareth & Gwen Medieval Mystery.
Not your average mix
I love historical fiction and I love mysteries. What a surprise to find them smooshed together--and so well. Would never have occurred to me to look for this combination. Better still that its done so well.
Characters Take Awhile to Get to Know
Like some people it took me awhile to become acquainted with these characters and thus feel involved with this story. I am glad I continued with this story because I eventually discovered The Good Knight ( A Gareth and Gwen Medieval Mystery) by Sarah Woodbury to be an intriguing tale. Set in Wales in around 1100 A.D. many of the events, places, and characters actually have a place in history. The book begins with the assassination of King Anarwd on this way to his marriage. Gareth a knight comes upon the dead body, hurries to the castle with the news and is blamed for the murder by King Owain Gywenedd. Newly reunited with his soul mate, Gwen, the duo attempts to solve this mystery as bodies, attempted poisonings and a kidnaping heat up the plot. This a first in a series of Gareth and Gwen books.
The Good Knight (Medieval Mystery)
I started this book twice. The character's names were way too hard to pronounce and similar or one another so I finally gave up.
