    1. I think several of these categories need revisions like one half humor , or double strong women , or double historical really far back there.Susanna, Lady Appleton, is a very strong minded woman She is married to a man who is a diplomat in the English court and is frequently away on court business, even out of the country, for months at a time Now that she has whipped her husband s estate into shape, she has time on her hands, until word comes that the steward of her husband s childhood home has [...]


    2. I wanted to give this 3.5 stars I like Susanna, but as another reviewer said, the men are awful I know the time period means the idea that women were silly, dull dimwits who should be ruled over by men, but surely every male didn t agree so much



    3. Face Down in the Marrow Bone Pie by Kathy Lynn Emerson is the first book of the Lady Susanna Appleton mystery series, set in 1559 England Susanna is an intelligent, quick witted, well educated woman with a curiosity for knowledge and a talent for organization qualities not greatly admired by chauvinistic males in the 16th century Sir Robert, Susanna s husband, frequently travels to France on diplomatic and or covert missions for Queen Elizabeth, while Susanna ably manages their estate in Kent Sh [...]


    4. This is a light, moderately pleasant read It s predictable and not very deep, but I liked the protagonist detective, Lady Appleton, and the way she was determined to investigate a suspicious death despite her husband s disapproval I didn t like the husband at all All of the men in this book were unlikeable to various degrees.


    5. The mystery wasn t deeply intriguing Not really an enormous number of suspects or clues However, the history felt authentic, and was interesting enough to keep me reading Will look at the next in the series.


    6. 2.5 stars This is a cozy mystery set in 15th century England It was just ok, if that I didn t care about any character I wasn t impressed by any character I almost gave up on it at 60% The ending was predictable but decent there was just too much tedium to get there.


    7. Mystery brain candy I like the 16th century heroine and setting enough to seek out the second Face Down book when it comes out in November 2000 A bit predictable, but fun, and I had to look up some of the Elizabethan terms, so some minor mental exercise occurred.


    8. First Sentence Steam rose from the marrow bone pie until the old man s sharp beak of a nose wrinkled in delight.Sir Robert Appleton is off to France on a mission for Queen Elizabeth A letter he receives, shortly before his trip, tells of the death of John Bexwith, steward of Appleton Manor in Lancashire As Bexwith was not old and was found dead face down in a marrow bone pie, Lady Susanna Appleton, who is writing an herbal and knowledgeable of poisons, suspects his death to be unnatural In spite [...]


    9. This is a light mystery, but it held my attention well Set in 16th century England 1559 it involves a strong, intelligent woman Susanna Appleton in a culture that didn t respect strong, intelligent women Her marriage was arranged by her family, and her husband is a product the culture She is compiling a guide to poisonous herbs, to be used by wives and cooks as a safety reference, and has a very good working knowledge of poisons She is also not given to superstition Word reaches her of the death [...]


    10. I m not quite sure how I feel about this book It wasn t bad.but it wasn t as good as I expected The climax was great, but the ending just sorta let me down I will give the next book a shot, but it s not looking all that promising I enjoy the fact that Lady Appleton is a strong willed, knowledgeable, get down to it kind of woman She doesn t let anything scare her and she doesn t let her husband rule her At the same time, I kinda wish her and Sir Robert had a intimate relationshipeven towards the [...]


    11. This was a reread for me and I m so happy I gave this series another try I had initial read this book in my early twenties and while I liked the main character, I was turned off by the undercurrents of sexism, double standards, and general why do all these men suck angst Being a bit older, the realistic misogyny of the time period is less chaffing and I have a much greater appreciation of just how unusual the main character is The mystery was not the most complex or deviously plotted, but I love [...]


    12. I really enjoyed this book despite the fact that you could spot the solution as soon as you were introduced to the manor residents A little naughty, a little predictable, but all around a charming escape.


    13. Lady Appleton is a promising character I think I m going to enjoy reading of her mystery novels The language of the book is rich and the details of everyday life in Elizabethan times are intriguing.


    14. This is a book Linda and I read years ago I m not sure I ever finished it, and if I did, I forgot the story, so don t mind reading it again Very entertaining, with lots of details about life and cooking and herbs during the time of Queen Elizabeth I.


    15. If you prefer Faye Kellerman s historical mysteries, you might enjoy the Susanna, Lady Appleton series It features a strong and intelligent heroine who is unique in her Renaissance world This is the first in the series.


    16. Cute little 15th century mystery story I will likely read of this series The author was quite adept at integrating elements of Elizabethan lifestyle and social customs into the telling of this tale, which made it seem authentic I also really like the main character She has spunk








    17. Not particularly good, but I m going to read the second book in the series before I decide whether to continue The first one was a quick enough read to have been only a minor time sink.


    18. Face Down was a charming mystery, with a likable heroine and funny servant sidekicks as they solve murders in the 1500 s The first in a series I plan to download the others onto my Nook soon.


    19. This is actually the first Lady Susannah mystery I read them out of order Because of that, some of the twists were spoiled for me, though the central mystery wasn t Sept 2011
