Here's what one of our members thinks of her bag
A big thank you for the two Lovereading bags I ordered, which have arrived safely. I love mine and will use it with pride. The bags are lovely quality, sturdy and support a good cause in the Rewrap initiative; I think they make the perfect accessory for any book lover. The second bag was a gift for my sister and she says she will take it to her next book group meeting to help spread the Lovereading word. Once again, many thanks. Emily Wright
Conspiracy by S. J. Parris
PARIS, 1585. A KING WITHOUT AN HEIR Giordano Bruno arrives in Paris to find a city on the edge of catastrophe. King Henry III lives in fear of a coup by the fanatical Catholic League and another massacre on the streets.
Praise for S. J. Parris:
'A tight plot combines with subtly realised characters and an omnipresent sense of danger ... My pleasure in the vividly textured backdrop and a cracking story was accompanied by an uneasy shudder
'Colourful characters, fast-moving plots and a world where one false step in religion or politics can mean a grisly death'
'A delicious blend of history and thriller'
'Vivid, sprawling ... Well-crafted, exuberant fare'
'Successful historical thrillers need three elements: a killer plot that weaves seamlessly into the history; an engaging protagonist; and an atmospheric sense of place. Parris nails all three - Conspiracy is a gem'
'This latest addition to the series will no doubt repeat its predecessors' success... The authentically febrile air of suspense that Parris generates, as well as a shoal of red herrings and some impish, what-if plotting. The drawing-room style denouement, conducted as it is in a salon at the Tuileries Palace, is also executed with knowing relish' Observer
'I can thoroughly recommend Conspiracy, which twists and turns like a corkscrew of venomous snakes
