Swords & Fallen Lords – Trixie Silvertale

Mitzy Moon Mysteries, Book Seven

Five of five stars given

There is never a dull moment in Mitzy’s new life in Pin Cherry Harbor. All the more so now that she and Sheriff-Too-Hot-To-Handle are taking it to the next level.

Like their date.  At the Ren Faire.  Where they watch the jousting matches.  And witness the Black Knight quite literally kill the Lord Mayor in front of their eyes.  That was NOT part of the choreography!  Always at the ready to unveil the truth, Mitzy digs right in to find out if Sir Knight was indeed villainous or framed.

All the familiar characters lend this volume the feeling of a meeting with old friends.  Amidst the Ren Faire subterfuges and treachery, is the well loved banter between Ghost-Ma and Mitzy.  Aided as ever by the sage advice and timely intervention of Silas Willoughby.  The timely hints “dropped” by my favourite resident of “almost Canada” – Pyewacket, the Caracal are always on point!  And the eerie reappearance of an old nemesis adds just enough intrigue!

Silvertale has hit it out of the Faire-grounds with Book Seven.  Seeing the inhabitants of Pin Cherry again is a joy.  This author is outstanding at weaving tales that surprise and delight while still mystifying in equal measures; but it was over far too soon.  I’m now left waiting anxiously for Mitzy’s next adventure, which I know won’t be too far behind!  Highly recommend!
