    A must-read for any his fic fans!

    Welcome to the château of Duc Hugo d’Amboise, where status and political jockeying are exchanged between the sheets. Life is good for the Duc until his new mistress, Letitia, arrives. He’s captivated by her and spends all his time with her, practically ignoring the other mistresses and his wife. Duchesse Charlotte seethes with envy and plots to get rid of the new mistress. She cajoles the other mistresses to help her and Henriette is caught in the middle. Will she forego her position at the château to follow her heart or will she bend to the will of the Duchesse in order to secure her and her daughter’s stability? Kate Murdoch has done it again. She’s taken one of my favourite time periods (early 18th century France) and breathed new life into it. Everything from the day to day life of the household and all its residents to the class system to clothing is 100% historically accurate. Her descriptive narration articulates every nuance of the story as each scene unfolds. In rich detail and from multiple points of view, the reader not only connects with each character but in a sense, becomes a part of the story. I couldn’t stop reading once I started, and even lost sleep because of it. My husband blames Kate Murdoch and I have to say, the tiredness I felt the next day was worth it. If you love immersive historical fiction with intrigue, backstabbing and social climbing plus a darn good mystery to unravel, The Orange Grove is a must-read! Highly recommend and will, I’m sure, earn plenty of awards. My Rating: 5+ stars
