Book review by Jeanne for:


Veil of Lies, by Jeri Westerson

Was it a love match? What did you like/not like about it?

Yes – very intriguing book – excellent description enabled me to be watching all action in my mind. I was disappointed in last chapter as Crispin Guest moves away from marriage chance.

This was such a good book. On my own I probably might not have checked it out by the title. I was unfamiliar with the author, but now I will read the best of J. Westerson’s books.

Character Crispin Guest was similar to Houdini in escaping his bound legs & arms when he found himself in Thames River.

Tell us three adjectives that describe this book:
Historical – London when Richard II became king at age 10
Masquerade – Imposters of identity
Identity – reallocation of titles, bureaucracy of trade
