Kurzbeschreibung

Meet Gareth & Gwen in their first mystery together. Intrigue, suspicion, and rivalry among the royal princes casts a shadow on the court of Owain, king of north Wales ...

The year is 1143 and King Owain seeks to unite his daughter in marriage with an allied king. But when the groom is murdered on the way to his wedding, the bride's brother tasks his two best detectives--Gareth, a knight, and Gwen, the daughter of the court bard--with bringing the killer to justice.

And once blame for the murder falls on Gareth himself, Gwen must continue her search for the truth alone, finding unlikely allies in foreign lands, and ultimately uncovering a conspiracy that will shake the political foundations of Wales.

The Good Knight is the first Gareth & Gwen Medieval Mystery.

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

With two historian parents, Sarah couldn’t help but develop an interest in the past. She went on to get more than enough education herself (in anthropology) and began writing fiction when the stories in her head overflowed and demanded she let them out. Her interest in Wales stems from her own ancestry and the year she lived in England when she fell in love with the country, language, and people. She even convinced her husband to give all four of their children Welsh names. She makes her home in Oregon.

I cant get into the story for whatever reason. did a lot of skimping so my review is probably very biased. i just cant bring myself to read further.....so i went through the pages very quickly hoping to be done with it.

I started this book right after I had finished the last of Ellis Peters' Brother Cadfael series - and I stopped reading after chapter 10. Maybe my expectations were too high. Ellis Peters spoils her readers with her elaborate epic style, intricate plots and historical authenticity. All this I could not find in this book. But you may like it if you want to read an ongoing romance with a heroine who acts and talks more like a 20th century girl hurled back into unfamiliar surroundings of a medieval Wales.

5.0 von 5 Sternen I enjoyed this book 27. März 2017
Von Virginia Heard - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I enjoyed this book !! It is labeled as #1 but references seem to indicate I missed one !! Trying to describe the "mood" was rather difficult !! There is an entire range from funny to dark to tragic !! I like the characters of Garth and Gwen and I having detectives in the early time setting is unusual !! I do believe there were more Kings than every day people though !!!! The tale has a lot of twists,betrayals, turns and surprises and I had to pay pretty close attention but the biggest surprise was at the end when the killer was revealed !!! I do not want to ruin plots for future readers so I will just say THANK YOU FOR THE GOOD ENTERTAINMENT !!!

3.0 von 5 Sternen An enjoyable medieval mystery in a fun historical 18. Juli 2014
Von Kindle Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This book is not as bad as some reviewers have described it. If you are a history geek like myself, this book takes place in Wales during what would have been the time Stephen and Maud were duking it out for the English throne. They were cousins (those gossipy monks also hinted lovers) and after years of fighting, Maud should have inherited but lost the throne to Stephen with the proviso that her son would take the throne after him. This left Wales to get its act together. In Ireland, the Danes are on the throne and mercenaries for hire. Gwen and Gareth are commoners heading toward a relationship when he loses his position, because he was asked to do something he could not stomach by the King's younger brother. I don't remember that much about Wales geography, but I am assuming that these Kings are actually sharing the present day Wales. The king has given his daughter to the neighboring King and he is killed on the way to the wedding. Gareth sees it when he was riding by and went to summon help knowing one man could not have stopped this.

Gwen's father was the king's Bard and also taught one of the Princes. He was being raised in a castle alone and so the King told him to teach them both to give the boy some company. She was taught along with the king's second illegitimate son who grew to care for her. Her mother died giving birth to her brother that she then raised as her own. Her education stopped and her father turned down all offers for her hand to have someone to take care of them. She has made her peace with not having a husband or a family of her own and was a spy for the Prince in her travels. Gareth was knighted and worked for the same Prince and they meet again. Gwen's father wanted to ride with the king, but his horse went lame and he refused to go until such time that they could find what he considered a suitable mount. He planned to make his son the new Court Bard.

I refute two things I saw in other reviews: This is not medieval CSI and the education level of a Prince Gwen obtained and the tracking abilities Gareth had are not enough to make this novel read like CSI. This was the Dark ages, but we lost a great deal of knowledge that was available then. This is a historical novel because anything set in the past dealing with historical figures qualifies for that name. Second, this book could use a good editor, but it was not poorly written. I enjoyed it and would read on if the author reduced the price. I do not think Ms. Woodbury writes at the price point she is trying to sell these stories for. This is a good medieval mystery although not a love story, because it is the first in a series. There is no formal relationship between Gareth and Gwynedd. The story continues past the ending of this mystery, but there is an ending with no cliffhangers. I enjoyed the piece, learned a few things about Wales in the 1100's and found this a good read.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Welsh Legend 14. August 2016
Von Warren A. Lewis - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This is a fictional narrative based on Welsh history from the year 1143. King Anarawd, a territorial king, is promised to marry the daughter of King Owain Gwynedd, another territorial king. However, on the way to the wedding, King Anarawd and his party are ambushed and he is slain. Sir Gareth, who is sent to escort the king to the festivities, comes upon the scene and finds the deaths. He and his entourage is attacked as he starts to return with the news. but fights off the attackers. On his return he is accused of the murder. It is up to Gareth, the princes, who are brothers of the bride, and Gwen, one of the event's entertainers, to solve the murder and free Gareth. The romantic twist between Gareth and Gwen ignites throughout the story. It does start a little slow, but the book becomes hard to put down until the end, when a most unusual twist is totally unexpected.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Surprisingly Good 21. Mai 2017
Von J.C. Prins - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

I was not sure what to expect from this book. Historical mysteries set in the Middle Ages are so hit and miss. While following the numerous characters and the various storylines was tricky at first, everything came together to form a coherent tale. My only quibble is that in the first half of the book, Gareth ponders Hywel's movements during his solo trip through the mountains as if we, the readers, knew Hywel had been somewhere around during the ambush of Anarawd (not a spoiler). I went back and reread several passages and could find no antecedent reference to Hywel in that context, so it was confusing. However, as noted, during the first part of the book, quite a number of events are briefly, but not fully, discussed even though they really have nothing to do with the story, except to, for example, demonstrate that mystery solving is nothing unusual for Gwen. However, the whole thing pulls together to form a satisfying mystery and compelling adventure. It also made me want to explore Wales. I will definitely continue reading the series.

Addendum: While I had quibbles about confusion at first, the story, as a whole, is worthy of more than the average 4.1 stars it now rates on Amazon. I would highly recommend this book. Further, I would strongly encourage people to read the first sections without over-worrying about the confusing parts. It all makes sense in the end, actually, long before the end. I finished the book and rated it 5 stars, because of how much I liked it and how satisfying I found the resolution. I have now read all of the Gareth and Gwen novels and fully recommend them. Since last book came out in May, I believe, with great hope, that the series is not over. I have also read the Last Pendragon Saga and the Lion in Winter series and really enjoyed them as well. I will be starting the After Time series next. My main quibble with the various series is that the same names are used: Gareth, Geraint, Gawain, Owain, Hywel, etc. Sunce I read very quickly and move from one novel to the next (with intermissions for Netflix binge watching), so I find myself envying later characters with the attributes of the previous characters of the same name. It can be very disconcerting. Otherwise, I have enjoyed all of the books very much. On to the next!

Finally, for clarification, this is the first full novel in the series of Gareth and Gwen. There is, however, a novella, The Bard's Daughter, that goes through the period of time around when Gwen first met Gareth and her father was accused of a murder, which is obliquely referenced in a Good Knight. Reading it first, will put things in order of occurrence, more fully develop the characters of Meilyr and Gwalchmai, and make the first parts of The Good Knight a little less confusing.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An intriguing medieval whodunit. 28. Juni 2016
Von Mandy Walkden-Brown - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
It's well written, the characters are vivid, the setting well described, the story compelling and it's also just plain fun to read.
I didn't feel the overwhelming need to shake the heroine, Gwen, even once; no simpering, fainting female this one. In fact I really liked her and the dashing knight, Gareth, wasn't bad either.
I'll be following this series hoping that they're all as delightful as this one was.
