Books by Karen Harper
Mistress of Mourning (2012)
language
English
3.52 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: I was intrigued by the historical subject, as a focus on late-marriage Henry VII & Elizabeth of York time frame without getting heavily into the future Henry VIII is a relatively rare find. Not being a mystery fan, it took me a little while to get into this book, but I knew the a...
Shattered Secrets (2014)

English
series
3.62 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: This was the first Karen Harper I've read. The concept was intriguing, but the delivery could have been stronger. The character development wasn't quite there, and some of the suspension-of-disbelief threads were so out there that they pulled me out of the story. I prefer much ti...
The Queen's Governess (2010)
language
English
3.9 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: A gripping and compelling tale about the life of the Tudors during the reign of King Henry VIII. This is somewhat more original since it is told from the POV Katherine Ashley, the governess of Princess Elizabeth, and not the other Tudors or Henry's many many wives. She's somewh...
Mistress Shakespeare (2009)
language
English
3.66 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: After the Tudor Secret which dealt with Queen Elizabeth in her youth, this one picks up with Gloriana already reigning. This is not about Elizabeth per se, but about Shakespeare and especially his possible first wife, Anne Whateley. Apparently there is a record of a request for a...
The Queen's Confidante (2012)
language
English
3.52 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: This book is set in the early Tudor years and focuses on Queen Elizabeth the wife of Henry Tudor the seventh. There is still unrest and factions that would return Yorkist leaders to the throne. The herione is a candle maker and in that time, candlemakers helped to bury the dead b...
Mistress in Mourning (2000)

English

review 1: I just couldn't give "Mistress of Mourning" three stars. It was good enough to read through, I guess, but not so good that I would recommend. I only connected with the Queen and Varina (the two main characters), very minimally. The story trudged along, and the "suspense" barel...
Fall from Pride (2011)
language
English
series
3.76 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: This book is in the "romantic suspense" genre, and although I thought the romance stuff was just too obvious and predictable, the suspense who-done-it was top notch. Kept me guessing until the very end. This is about an Amish community in Ohio, and gave what seemed like a very go...
Return to Grace (2012)
language
English
series
3.85 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: Return to Grace immediately starts off with murder and mayhem. Included in the murder mystery is Hannah Esh, a girl that had left her plain life behind. Throughout Karen Harper leads you through the investigation and Hannah's struggle with what she wants from her life. I did n...
Down River (2010)
language
English
3.44 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: An easy read. It is a romance/suspense book set in Alaska. For me this book seemed to have too many things going on--it was unbelievable that all those things could happen to basically one person and the police don't believe a crime is being committed. There is a little romance t...
The Irish Princess (2011)
language
English
3.75 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: Amongst the dozens of books out there that follow the Tudor Era The Irish Princess unfortunately falls far from the top of the list. Maybe I have just read too many of these books from that era but the book just did not sit well with me. I found it dragging a lot and I just could...
Shakespeare's Mistress (2011)
language
English
3.66 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: This was not a book that grabbed me or held me rapt. I walked away from it several times to do other things, engage my mind in other ways. However, I cannot say that it was an uninteresting or even boring story. Harper's knowledge and insight into the England of Shakespeare's tim...

review 1: Arson brings Nate MacKenzie to Amish country where he meets Sarah Kauffman who paints murals on barns. Stangely only the barns with her paintings on them are singled out by the arsonist. As Nate struggles without much success to find the culprit, he and Sarah draw closer and clos...
