  • Historical Mystery Thriller

    The Lost Boys of London by Mary Lawrence is the fifth Historical Mystery in the Bianca Goddard Series. I love the medical details in this series and how dedicated Bianca is to her work, constantly learning and applying her discoveries with medications. When I read Ms. Lawrence‘s descriptions of London’s people and their surroundings in 1545 come alive. Life in 1545 England is constantly fraught with peril for all the characters. Bianca is involved in dark mysteries and in constant danger along with those she cares about. Bianca‘s husband has his own parallel storyline; at this time he’s away fighting a war with the Scots. This historical book takes the reader to an unknown place that includes a glossary to assist in understanding unfamiliar words and meanings. The author’s note adds interesting historical background. I received a complimentary copy of this book from Netgalley. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own. I appreciate the opportunity and thank the author and publisher for allowing me to read, enjoy and review this book. 5 Stars

  • An excellent read!

    I received a free electronic copy of this historical novel from Netgalley, Mary Lawrence, and IBPA Red Puddle Print. Thank you all for sharing your hard work with me. I have read this novel of my own volition and this review reflects my honest opinion of this work. Mary Lawrence writes a tight, taut mystery set in London during the reign of Henry VIII. The background details are plentiful, London of the 1600s is about two centuries before my usual London reads, but I couldn't resist the book cover on this one. I have now added Mary Lawrence to my must-reads authors and 16th century England to my areas of interest. I am pleased to recommend Mary Lawrence to friends and family. The protagonists in this novel are very well rounded, the conversations clearly understandable, and the background well defined. There is a supplement at the end of The Lost Boys of London giving definitions of slang and common words from this time and the Author's note at the end is very informative. The mystery stays a mystery for long enough and the spirit of this work is, despite the focus on the boys, uplifting. The fifth of the series of Bianca Goddard mysteries, this book is stand-alone but I will be looking for the first four, as this book, this author, is a keeper, to read again when I have read the first four novels.

  • The Lost Boys of London is a Fantastic Read

    The Bianca Goddard Mysteries by Mary Lawrence are fantastic and The Lost Boys of London is the best one yet. Her recreation of Tudor London is accurate and spot-on. Her character development is great and makes me feel like I know them personally. The story line and mystery development grabs hold and keeps me reading late into the night. I most highly recommend The Lost Boys of London.

    Thanks for your feedback!
