    One thought on “The Colour of Cold Blood”

    1. It was my absolute pleasure to receive an advance reader copy of Toni Mount's third Sebastian Foxley Medieval Murder Mystery. After reading "The Colour of Poison" I was absolutely hooked on the story of Sebastian Foxley and I must admit, developed a little bit of a crush on the young artist.From the moment I picked this book up, and I know it sounds horribly cliched, I couldn't put it down. Mount's writing style, the twists and turns in the plot, make this novel a real page turner. The descripti [...]

    2. I just love so much about this series and this book in particular that I'm not sure where to start. I suppose the best place to begin is with Sebastian Foxley himself, the title character and, I'm guessing, many readers' reason for picking up this book. Sweet, naive Sebastian is easy to love . . . unless you are his wife, Emily. The romance between these two that flourished so effortlessly in the previous installments has fallen a bit flat after a year of marriage. Instead of being endearing, Se [...]

    3. The Colour of Cold Blood is the third in the Sebastian Foxley series by Toni mount, and the second full length novel. This time, Seb and his older brother Jude are trying hard to run their scrivener’s shop and live a normal life. Seb is trying to enjoy married life with Emily, whom he wed in the preceding novella, The Colour of Gold. Seb is dealing with daily medieval life and its troubles - running his shop, managing rambunctious apprentices, making ends meet even though the local clergy keep [...]

    4. I want another one to read next A little slow getting started, this is still a worthy tale well worth your time. The first half often felt like the author was directing the characters actions rather than flowing naturally from the characters. So it felt a little stiff. But the second half was better. I still love the characters and the historical locale. I certainly hope there is another in the series.

    5. Very goodThis is a very educational book, as is the complete series. I must say I was very displeased with Emily though. Sebastian is such a sensitive manry special. The Known Men is new to me, but it answers many of my theological history questions. I think readers will be fascinated by this history. I would highly recommend this series. So many interesting historical facts used to create it.

    6. I really enjoyed this book. The characters are so well-written and believable, the atmosphere of the medieval streets caught beautifully. The mystery is only part of the story - the relationships between the characters are as much oart of the story and feel very real.There is some swearing. Not a lot, and mostly mild but the F word does pop up a few times, but I haven't dropped a star as it doesn't claim to be a 'clean read'. It was not often enough to make me stop reading.

    7. A wonderful book, full of excitement and well described scenes of Mediaeval London, with believable, engaging characters and a thrilling story line, with two well researched themes running throughout. Ms Mount writes in a way to make everything seem to come alive and often I felt that I was a part of the enthralling story. I love this series! A pleasure to read.

    8. This book has received a Discovering Diamonds Review: Helen Hollickfounder #DDRevs"If you are looking for a quick airplane read this would do nicely to while away a few hours."

    9. Great book, you really get the feel of the atmosphere of the time, a good book to get lost in and follow the twist and turns as this fantastic author takes you back to the medieval era

    10. Brilliant - wonderful historical detail, well crafted characters - some annoying, some loveable, plus a murder to solve and an execution to avoid, how will Seb Foxley manage this time?

    11. Great readThoroughly researched medieval mystery that shows the almost total grasp of the Catholic church on everyone & everything. This is so beautifully written that you can feel the cold wind & smell the crowd of people at mass.
