Derbyshire, England, 1603.

Elizabeth I is dead, and the Tudor reign is over. As the men in power decide to pass the throne to the Scottish King James, one woman debates changing the course of history.

Two Tudor heirs have been covered up for decades, and with a foreign king threatening the stability of England it could be time to bring the truth to the fore.

But there are reasons the Tudor children were put into hiding, and exposing them would put not only their lives in danger, but the lives of many others as well....

Marquess House, Pembrokeshire, 2019.

Dr Perdita Rivers and her sister, Piper, have returned to their ancestral home. But the ancient walls still contain riddles which the twins need to solve.

Perdita and Piper have already discovered earth-shattering secrets which will change the course of English history forever. But they are missing one vital piece of the puzzle.

Two Tudor rings have led them to cover-ups at the Tudor court, but now they must track down a missing silver locket to slot the final parts of the mystery together.

And just when it seems they could be ready to expose the centuries-old conspiracy, old enemies resurface to put their very lives at risk....

The Arbella Stuart Conspiracy is the final book in the Marquess House trilogy, a dual timeline conspiracy thriller with an ingenious twist on a well-known period of Tudor and Stuart history.

Captivating, intriguing, enjoyable throughout.

Alexandra Walsh knows how to spin a good yarn; intrigue and drama all the way. Each part of the trilogy is as equally strong as the other two. Obviously, she's created a great historical story, but I was equally captivated by the modern day thriller that ran parallel to the historical one.
Special mention has to go to a most brilliant narrator on the Audible version, Emma Gregory is almost single-handedly making my Kindle redundant.

I love theses types of books & this was a first

loved it it took a while to get through them BUT every night walking this took me away from whats been happening in 2020 & we all needed a break from our reality, But knowing these were real people makes it seem a possibility that history is whitewashed all the time.. great read

Too Far...

Not as good as the previous books. The historical flash back parts were the main issue, too many people added and Arabella wasn't a very likeable character. The plot was so far fetched even compared to the previous books and the less said about the so-called dramatic ending the better!

Hope and bloody mermaids to you too!

I preferred the first two books

I found this book too histrionic for my taste and it was very complex so I found myself stopping to look people and places up on the Internet even more than I had with the first two books. I suspect I also felt irritated with the females, Perdita and Piper, whilst listening to The Catherine Howard and The Elizabeth Conspiracies but let that be ignored because overall I enjoyed the books so much. I liked Emma Gregory’s voice in the main but her high voice when interpreting Piper’s conversation I found irritating in the extreme.
This last of the trilogy wasn’t, in my opinion, as good as the other two being, again only in my opinion, too far fetched. However, I must say that, whilst I despise the aristocracy in general and the Windsors in particular, I was fascinated by the idea of an alternate bloodline.
Finally, as a committed feminist from before the days of Germaine Greer et al, I loved the strong female characters in this trilogy. Grateful thanks to Alexandra Walsh for leading me to many hours of internet research resulting from listening to this trilogy. I hope she continues to write such interesting and involving novels.
