Reviewed: "Queen of Ambition" by Fiona Buckley

Ursula is biding her time in her new digs and is called early to go on Progress with Queen Elizabeth I. Of course, there's what seems to be a plot brewing to assassinate the queen, and Ursula is pressed into service earlier than she wanted.

This was a good continuation of the Ursula Blanchard series. She actually goes undercover this time and uncovers the plot and solves a murder. Ursula is enjoying coming out of "retirement" and ends up using all her skills she's learned for spying. This time, she was able to discover a code that the royal cryptographers weren't able to solve (because she found the Rosetta stone located in the place she was working under cover).

This moved well. I am a little disappointed - my library doesn't have the next three books! I'm going to have to wait to see if they'll purchase them so they will have a complete series.

In the meantime, I'm reading the first Sherlock Holmes book and am a little shocked. Sherlock is a bit of a dick!
