THE HOUSE OF THE RED DUKE: A PHOENIX RISING – Book 1 By Vivienne Brereton

Welcome:

Welcome everyone to CRYSTAL AND DAISY MAE’S PHOTO-BLOGGING SITE. As you know, this site is just not about photos but more. I always enjoy it when my readers and new visitors visit my site. 

Today, I would like to tell you about a book I read and give you my review of the book, My Book Rating and Why, My thoughts and so much more.

About The Book(Goodreads):

Thomas Howard Charismatic head of one of the most powerful Houses in Tudor England. An indomitable old man approaching eighty: soldier, courtier, politician, a ‘phoenix rising’ from the ashes. After a calamitous period of disgrace, the Howards, renowned for their good looks and charm, are once more riding high at the court of Henry VIII.

Set against the backdrop of the extraordinary 1520 ‘Field of Cloth of Gold’, it is a tale of ambition, love, and intrigue with Thomas at the centre of this intricate tapestry

Will Thomas’s bold vow be fulfilled? Danger stalks the corridors of the royal courts of Europe. Uneasy lies the head beneath a crown. Every other ruler – a fickle bedfellow…or sworn enemy.

The action takes place in England, Scotland, and France. On either side of the Narrow Sea, four young lives are interwoven, partly unaware of each other, and certainly oblivious to what Dame Fortune has in store for them.

“Nicolas de La Barre laid his lute to one side, hardly bothering to stifle a yawn of boredom. Nevertheless, he couldn’t escape the fact he’d agreed to take on a new wife…”

Explosive family secrets are concealed behind the ancient walls of castles in three lands. But… “There are no secrets that time does not reveal.”

About the Author(Goodreads):

 Born near historic Winchester in the UK, I have been passionate about the Tudors for as long as I can remember. This led to a degree in Medieval History at university and the growing desire to write a novel. However, life took over somewhat  and only after stays, short and long, in six countries I called home did I finally settle down to finish my novel. 

Words have always played an important part in my life, whether it’s been writing, editing, teaching English, or just picking up a good book. In preparation for my Tudor series, I did an enormous amount of research. 

Having three sons came in very handy when I had to write about squabbles between Nicolas and Tristan in my novel. Not so handy when I took them to Hampton Court and one of them got lost in the maze! I also used the men in my life as guinea pigs for my Tudor Cookery attempts (recipes included) with varying degrees of protest.

Seeing ‘A Phoenix Rising’, the first book in the series ‘The House of the Red Duke’ in print for the first time was a moment of great joy for me. I hope anyone reading it will enjoy the end result as much as I enjoyed writing it.

My Book Rating:

📕📕📕📕📕 (5 books = 5 stars)

What I Thought Of The Book:

When I first started reading this book, it was like I read it before. The names were so familiar to me. So I looked in front of the book and read what it was all about then read the back of the book. It was well so weird and strange because I felt like I was reading about some of my ancestors in the book. I did find out it was set in the 16th century. Those of you who have just moaned or are thinking about it well… I had probably had similar thoughts. But I assure you, despite being set in the 16th century the book was written in English 99.9% of the time so you don’t have much 16th century talk to deal with. I loved the book and look forward to the next one. The title of Book 2 is: The House Of The Red Duke: The Lizard Lurking In The Grass. Best of all in the back of the book, there is a 16th century words and phrases from A – Z translated to the English words and phrases.

Recommendation:

I highly recommend this book. I enjoyed reading this book a lot I did not want to put the book down. I hope you buy, read it and review it. Look forward to see what you all think of this book.

Book 4 Update: Royal Murder Mysteries

Earlier in the year or Maybe late in December 2019, I told you all my goals for 2020. Well I’m happy to say Mom hasn’t got worse and is keeping her independence, as for me staying healthy that isn’t going well at this time. However, I am very happy to say I’m halfway done with my draft for Book 4. I’m at 18,116 words. That is at the start of Chapter 10. Woo Hoo!! My hope is to have Book 4 done in about 6 to 7 months if all goes well and after that, I hope to get the Epilogue started. 

I hope to get more words typed in the next few days.  Wish Me Luck.

Prancie: A Poem

Written By: Crystal Stewart

Written On: 1-25-2020

Prancie

Prancie, you were a beautiful

Orange Cat with a touch of White.

You had beautiful eyes of gold. So

Precious Prancie you found a loving

Furrever home with other Cats.

You got along with the other Cats

Just fine. The family just adored 

You and loved you. Prancie, you are

A special Cat in more ways than one.

You lived a full and active life. Yes

It was a sad when God called

You home and yes we were also

Devastated when we found out

You earned your wings to go over

The Rainbow Bridge but before you

Went over the Rainbow Bridge, we

Made many memories that we’ll

Cherish and treasure of you. We will

Always love you and miss you. We

Loved you so much that you left

Pawprints on our hearts. Prancie,

You have become an angel and

Aren’t miserable or suffering in

Pain anymore and are romping with

Other Cats and other pets now.

Prancie sweet kitty cat, you are now

An angel and will be sadly missed. 

So when a Monarch Butterfly shows

Up with its beautiful wings know

That it’s your sweet Prancie coming

To check on you and your family.

When you see more than one

Beautiful Monarch Butterfly don’t

Worry because that is your sweet

Prancie with all friends

She’s met.

You will know when you see a bunch

Of Butterflies, A flock of Birds,

Hummingbirds staying together

As if to say I’m here for you and

Don’t be to upset or mad because it

Rains or Snows. You see the Rain

And

The Snow are your friends not to

Mention when it rains and snows

That’s me Angel Prancie sitting on

Your shoulder and saying, I’m here

To make sure you and the

Family are OK.

Prancie, thank you for all the

Memories.

You left pawprints on our hearts.

THE BONDS WE HAVE ARE

EVERLASTING!!

Millie, you were a beautiful and 

Smart White Cat that was born

Blue eye and one green eye. You

Lived a full and active life.

The Rainbow Bridge but before you

Went over the Rainbow Bridge, we

Made many memories that we’ll

Cherish and treasure of you. We will

Always love you and miss you. We

Loved you so much that you left

Pawprints on our hearts.

Millie, you have become an angel

And aren’t miserable or suffering in

Pain anymore and are romping with

Other cats and other pets now.

Millie sweet kitty cat, you are now

An angel and will be sadly missed.

So when a Monarch Butterfly shows

Up with its beautiful wings know

My 1st No Sew Blanket

Hi Everyone Daisy Mae here, Did you miss me and my HuMom? Well, I’m sorry to say my HuMom has been sick since before Christmas. It’s one of those things just when she thinks she’s all better she gets sick again. She even got a flu shot too. So I’m filling in for her until she is better.

Today, I have something special for you. Crystal one of my HuMoms got this neat craft kit for Christmas. She thought it was going to be hard to make because directions weren’t clear and the people who got it for her couldn’t help her either. But once again, youngest sister to the rescue well youngest sister and her family showed her what to do and that helped tremendously. She finished her No Sew Blanket this Morning. So what is a No Sew Blanket? A No Sew Blanket Kit is a blanket you obviously don’t sew it, and since the directions weren’t clear it’s really hard to explain. However, I will show you the finished project below.

A TEXAS CHRISTMAS Mystery & Love at Christmas Book Reviews

Happy New Year everyone!! With 2019 behind us and 2020 just starting, what better way to start the new year off but by doing book reviews. This is my first post of 2020. ENJOY!!

Love at Christmas 

This paperback book is a compilation of Four Christmas Novellas by Anne Greene. Each book in this book is excellent and very well written. This book is Clean, no graphic sex, no cussing, no vulgarity, no use of the F word. Just good clean reading and inspirational. I highly recommend this book and would be a good book for a book club to read.

The books in this book can be bought separately too. If your interesting in reading my review on Bookbub the link for the review is: Love at Christmas Book Review .


A TEXAS CHRISTMAS Mystery

This paperback book is an inspirational, clean Christmas mystery. This book is excellent reading and well written. Many kudos to Anne Greene for writing her books inspirational and keeping them clean. Just goes to show you don’t need all that graphic sex, vulgarity and cussing and gore to sell a book. If a book is well written, action packed, has plots twists turns and keeps me interested, then the author has successfully done her/his job. Personally, if you put  graphic sex, cussing and vulgarity, use or overuse the use of the F word and put a lot of gore in your book then I can honestly say that is a complete turn off for me. However, I will read a book and find out while reading the F word is used then I usually do 1 of 2 things, I either put down and it becomes a DNF (Did Not Finish) or if I find out the F word is used, I decide is the book well written enough to finish the book. Most of the time though it turns out being DNF’s. Once again, Anne Greene writes another Fantastic book. 

I highly recommend both these books and hope you go buy and read them. I reviewed this book on Bookbub and to read the review you can go to: A TEXAS CHRISTMAS Mystery Review .

*full disclosure* I won A TEXAS CHRISTMAS Mystery in Anne Greene’s newsletter contest and she also sent me the book Love at Christmas to review.
