The Royal Librarian by Daisy Wood

With some authors, you just know you need to read their next book when it releases.  The Clockmaker's Wife and The Forgotten Bookshop in Paris have added Daisy Wood to that list for me, so obviously I had to grab an ARC of The Royal Librarian.

My Thoughts:

Lacey is assisting her elderly grandmother when she discovers a letter on stationary from Windsor Castle. While Grandma Sophie doesn't want to discuss it, Lacey knows she must find out more. In the dual timeline, young Sophie has become a librarian at Windsor Castle, preserving the royal library and interacting with the young princesses. With war raging, she learns that Windsor Castle could be a dangerous place, especially for young Elizabeth, the future queen.

I've loved Daisy Wood's other books and was so excited to read this one. Once again, she does not disappoint, but this one provides a bit of a mystery as well. With Windsor Castle possibly being compromised, who can Sophie actually trust and who might be a threat to her or the royal family. I really enjoyed Sophie's story and the insights into Windsor Castle, both the parts within the Royal Libray and her interactions with the young princesses! The book was another that kept me up all night to finish it as each piece of the puzzle begins to fit into place. I always enjoy a good novel that ties into the royal family and this one definitely held to its promise.
