In the court of King Henry VIII, nothing is free–
and love comes at the highest price of all.
 
When Kitty Tylney’s best friend, Catherine Howard, worms her way into King Henry VIII’s heart and brings Kitty to court, she’s thrust into a world filled with fabulous gowns, sparkling jewels, and elegant parties. No longer stuck in Cat’s shadow, Kitty’s now caught between two men–the object of her affection and the object of her desire. But court is also full of secrets, lies, and sordid affairs, and as Kitty witnesses Cat’s meteoric rise and fall as queen, she must figure out how to keep being a good friend when the price of telling the truth could literally be her head.
My Review: I really wanted to like this book. I love this history period, the idea of the book sounded good and I just had to try it. But it fell short for me.
The characters we’re okay. I didn’t hate them, but I didn’t really love them. A little more background on them would have helped me liked them more. The story also seemed too slow for me. It did pick up after a few chapters, but then it just lost my interest again.
So sadly this ended up a DNF.
