In her 13th outing (after Traitor's Tears), thrice-married Ursula is urged to wed again in order to build an alliance with France; along the way, she also has to ferret out a spy sharing too many secrets with the French and Spanish. Buckley's historical series remains charming and well researched. Ursula is fascinating, and the details regarding life in Elizabethan England are outstanding.
