“Author Victoria Hamilton manages
to create many layers to this book. It starts as a simple escape, then
mystery and evolves into many mysteries with an excellent promise of more
to come at the end. The characters, have many layers as well, and not
just our protagonist.”

Merry makes them and I want to eat them. I'd love to spend an afternoon
in that wonderful castle kitchen, sitting by the fireplace, and munching
on muffins with these characters, my new friends.” —Katreader
