The Tale of Mally Biddle by M.L. LeGette
When Mally Biddle agreed to spy upon the King of Lenzar and his overbearing knights she knew she was heading into danger. She didn’t know she’d find a family unlike any other.
Posing as a servant in Bosc Castle, Mally serves tea and tends fires for the most dangerous men in the kingdom. Her goal is to learn the truth of what happened sixteen years ago, when the infant princess met her death … a death that is surrounded by more questions than answers.
Along her search for the truth, Mally meets the energized Lita Stump, the strict and matriarchal Meriyal Boyd, and the opinionated Archibald Diggleby. Then of course there are the knights: Leon Gibbs who is slicker than a greased hog, Adrian Bayard, hot tempered and violent, and the worst of the lot: Sir Illius Molick, Captain of the Knights. And then there is Maud, a mysterious woman who just might know everything…
“To say I loved this book is an understatement. Mally is a wonderful character and she encounters so many quirky folks on her assignment. Very well written and engaging story! And an added bonus of a love triangle! I enjoyed it from beginning to end!! I will definitely be looking for more from this author!”
Author Melissa LeGette
Melissa LeGette lives in Georgia where she helps run a family farm, so her nails are a fright. The Tale of Mally Biddle is her second novel.
This was a fun read for me. The setting is well written and there is almost as much intrigue involved as you had at King Henry VIII’s Tudor court! Mally to me was not what I could call the best spy in the world but she is not the worst either. She is a likeable character and meets many along the way. I think if I had to pick a favorite character it would be Lita, her energy seemed to speak to me and come through the pages and give me a little zap of energy too!
I would reccomend this read to anyone who likes a good story and wants to follow the twists and turns. There were a few bits for me that were slightly cluttered and that is why I say 4 gems instead of 5 but it will still a great read.
