Dance for A Dead PrincessDance for A Dead Princess by Deborah Hawkins
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

What were the main themes of the book? A story of love, lies, murder, betrayal and secrets. I liked that the author did a pretty good at executing all of these themes. I was a bit skeptical on the use of the Princess of Wales but in the end I liked the way the author connected the main themes and plot to historical incidences and real people.

Describe 2 different settings or locations. The library (this was my favourite) - All dark mahogany wood with shelves from the floor to the ceiling. Two large mahogany desks with white sofas on each side. It was a beautiful warm room. The Abbey was a beautiful castle with long stair cases & huge rooms. The castle was very old with lots of secrets.

Were you able to connect with the main character and why? Yes, I liked Taylor a lot and she was able to keep the story interesting. However, there were parts when I felt she was far too naive and that there wasn't anything new to discover about her.

Disclosure - As a Quality Reads Book Club member, I received a free copy of this book from the author via Orangeberry Book Tours in exchange for my honest review.
