Publisher's Summary

It is the winter of 1143 and all is not well in the court of Owain, King of North Wales: His future in-laws are untrustworthy; the Norman lords on his eastern border are restless; and among his wedding guests lurks a cold-blooded killer.

Gareth and Gwen have marriage plans of their own, but their love will have to wait while the pair race to separate truth from lies, friends from foes, and unravel the mystery before King Owain - and his new bride - fall victim to their uninvited guest.

Haven't read the book but the audio was great

Where does The Uninvited Guest rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I'd give it a top 12 at least ;). It's really good.

What other book might you compare The Uninvited Guest to and why?

Well considering I'm not usually fond of murder mysteries I don't really have a comparison to it, but I do like historical novels. So I'd say probably anything by Phillipa Gregory in terms of research potential and historical fact mixed with artistic liberties wrapped around fictional events.

Which character – as performed by Laurel Schroeder – was your favorite?

Oddly? Christina. That heifer amuses me to no end.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I wanted to listen to all of them in one sitting, but unfortunately life and work prevent that. I did listen to it as fast as I possible though.

I am rather enjoying this series. I listen to audio books while I work to make the time go faster. I have found this series engaging without being distracting.

Didn't see ending

This was great book, and I always enjoy Laurel's reading of Sarah's books. Best part was that I hadn't seen the ending coming. Thanks, Sarah, as always!

Enjoyable story, but reader is not the best

I read this because I enjoy the Cadfael mysteries by Ellis Peters. It was a good story with likable characters. I really want to listen to other books in the series, however, the reader was a bit tiresome. She did not do a great job differentiating between characters. Still is you like historical mysteries, you should give this a listen

Entertaining continuation of the series

Any additional comments?

I enjoyed the first story in this series, and this second one keeps up the standards! Not only does Ms Woodbury give us a rich cast of characters, we’re in a medieval castle in Wales for a royal wedding, with an attempted murder and two bodies found in unexpected places.

There’s enough detail to give us an impression of some aspects of life at the time, some which seem familiar and others pretty alien. We have the mystery of the murders being investigated and solved, with twists and turns along the way.

I thought the narrator made a decent job of the Welsh accents, which can’t be easy for someone not that familiar with them, and her pacing and “feeling” was spot-on.
