Lori Shepherd loves the small Cotswold village of Finch, but as her eighth summer in the town approaches she finds herself wishing for a break in routine. When King Wilfred’s Faire – where the age of chivalry lives again – opens nearby, Lori gets her wish. But she soon finds it’s not all pageantry and play.

While Finch is besieged by tourists, Lori discovers a dark layer of intrigue beneath the fair’s bright surface. Is a sinister figure stalking Mirabel, the angel-voiced madrigal singer? Has a jealous rival sabotaged the Dragon Knight’s weapons? Is an evil assassin trying to murder Good King Wilfred? With her Aunt Dimity’s otherworldly guidance, Lori must race to save the village and risk her neck to keep the medieval revelry from ending in tragedy.
