No you haven't gone through a time warp You're visiting the annual Almost Authentic Elizabethan Spring Faire in Empty Creek Arizona All the townspeople are turned out in doublet and hose to relive the revelry of a lively era Bawdy bards abound minstrels. This series so far is light and zany and I found myself laughing out loud several times The books are full of eccentric and uirky characters aka a collection of free spirits I liked it much better than book 1 Penelope Warren is the owner of the local bookstore in Empty Creek Arizona called Mycroft and Company She is also the owner of an Abyssinian alley cat from Abyssinia named Mycroft aka Big Mike or Mikey Penelope is also an amateur sleuth when need arises Unlike most cozy mysteries whose sleuths are frowned upon by the local police Penelope and Big Mike are honorary members of the Empty Creek Police Department for helping solve crimes They welcome her helpIt is time for the month long annual Empty Creek Authentic Elizabethan Spring Faire All the towns people participate and get totally into character for the event The most important person at the event is Her Majesty ueen Elizabeth I There is a royal procession each day for her to greet her loyal subjects and visitors to the Faire The present ueen aka Carolyn Lewis aka Old Hatchet Face is not much loved by her subjects In her real life she was a much loved teacher Unfortunately she is murdered by a dagger to the back; and there are a plethora of suspects that had cause to do it A delegation is sent to persuade Penelope to take Carolyn's place and be the next ueen at the Faire Since the local police are stymied so far in finding the killer; it is expected that Penelope will do some sleuthing She is also provided an RV on site for the duration and her main sueeze Andy who will play Sir Walter Raleigh gets to stay with her Big Mike follows her everywhere and even gets to wear a royal ruff around his neck for the duration Cryptic notes are taped to her door and another murder takes place this time it's an actor named Richard Burbage who was acting in one of the Shakespearean plays performed for the ueen Aiding in the investigation are Detectives Larry Burke and Willie Stoner aka Tweedledee and Tweedledum The Chief of Police John Dutch Fowler may soon become Penelope's brother in law All the familiar characters from book one return to enliven this one Penelope's sister Cassandra Warren aka Storm Williams the B movie actress; Timmy Scott boyfriend of Kathleen's; Alyce Smith resident astrologer and psychic; Penelope's best friend of erotic romance novels Laney and her roommate Wally; and Chardonnay Penelope's Arabian filly Penelope's assistant at the store Kathleen Allan has been promoted from serving wench to lady in waiting She spends a lot of time in the pillory Penelope also hires a private detective Justin Beamish and two over sized twin brothers who pose as Robin Hood and his merry men to guard her when things turn dicey They are of course four centuries out of date but who cares Several new characters are introduced Leigh Kent the sexy librarian; Ben Jonson her boy friend who whispers love poems in her ear; Samantha Dale President of the Empty Creek National Bank; Blaine Edwards an iron worker who makes things for the faire such as chastity belts and swords; Lola LaPola a TV reporter etc If you pay close attention you can figure out the murderer before heshe is revealed I like that Big Mike is just an ordinary cat who happens to like lima beans We know his thoughts but he doesn't do extraordinary things This is the 2nd book where he accidently finds the clue that reveals the murderer He just lays on it for a nap until Penelope finds his hidey hole This was a delightful engaging and uick witted read Recommended
