A Secret and Unlawful Killing by Cora Harrison
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I'm in love with this author, and with Mara, the main character of this series. Mara is a Brehon, a female judge in Ireland, and, in this novel, she's solving murders (of course!) and trying to decide if she should give up everything she has to marry a king. I have a feeling she won't--she's thinking about a marriage in the 4th degree, where they both would keep their own homes and meet whenever they need to, to, um, act like a married couple.
The more I learn about ancient Gaelic law, the more I'm intrigued. Off to interlibrary loan the next book!
