About the Author:

Joyce and Jim Lavene have written more than forty novels together, including the Retired Witches Spellbook mysteries, the Missing Pieces mysteries, the Renaissance Faire mysteries, the Peggy Lee Garden mysteries, and the Sharyn Howard mysteries. They also write short stories, non-fiction articles and teach writing workshops. Their hobbies include gardening—they’re certified Master Gardeners—and attending Renaissance Faires.

From Publishers Weekly:

This jolly series debut from the husband-and-wife Lavene team serves up medieval murder and mayhem. USC doctoral candidate Jessie Morton studies medieval crafts every summer at Columbia, S.C.'s Renaissance Faire Village. While working with basket weaver Mary Shift, Jessie gets a shock when Mary's estranged husband, Joshua, is murdered in broad daylight. She quickly learns the actors at the Faire may be hiding more than their mundane lives. Jessie is certain that Mary is innocent of the murder, but also suspects the old weaver knows more than she's revealing. The situation becomes more complicated as secrets from Mary's turbulent past comes to light. Faire bailiff Chase Manhattan (whose hilarious name goes oddly unremarked) occasionally distracts Jessie with the promise of summer romance, but her focus is on solving the mystery. Fans of the Lavenes' Peggy Garden mysteries will appreciate Jessie's charm and determination as she sets out to clear her teacher's name. (Sept.)
