    Original storyline and setting for a YA. It dragged for me but don't let that scare you away. It is well written for most people's tastes and I think plenty of people will enjoy it. I got bogged down in the pretty words and descriptions and found the plodding plot to drag. I like more ...

    I loved this so much I blurbed it "Assassins, spies, a forbidden romance, a plot to kill the queen, and secrets aplenty - all centering around Shakespeare?s Globe Theatre. Be still my Shakespeare-loving fangirl heart." ...

    Historical is one of my least read genres. Although people and events from history are interesting, if I read historical, I don't want an exact recounting like a textbook. I want something that adds to the past and makes it unique and fun. Assassin's Guide takes people you know such as...

    This is such a fun unique take on historical fiction. Shakespeare, romance, disguised gender and, you know, plotting murder, made for one excellent story. This is a great standalone I highly recommend. ...

    As soon as I read the synopsis of An Assassin?s Guide to Love & Treason by Virginia Boecker, I knew I had to read it. This book is a standalone and it has a fast pace to keep the story moving and if you like historical books focused on a plot for murder, I think you should pick t...

    Short, stunned take: Absolutely brilliant. Actual blurb: A tour de force blending wrenchingly complicated romance, vibrant theatre history, and deadly Elizabethan politics, AN ASSASSIN'S GUIDE TO LOVE AND TREASON seduced me completely. Unofficial blurb: OMG I AM SO OBSESSED WITH THI...

    Blurb of Officialness: "An Assassin's Guide to Love and Treason is a thrilling, immersive romp through Shakespeare's London, and all the intrigue, alliances, and politics that shaped it. Helmed by two feisty leading players who I fell in love with as they fell for each other, and with ...

    I can't get over how clever An Assassin's Guide to Love and Treason is. For the inner English Lit nerd, watching all the pieces of this book come together was me just yelling, "YES!" over and over again. That's almost what it was like watching me read this book. Except I was in a gover...

    Two years ago, I read the first book in the author?s fantasy series ? The Witch Hunter ? and, surprisingly, I rated it 3.5 stars as well. What does this mean? Well, like The Witch Hunter, this one was easy to read and fast-paced. I enjoyed reading about the two main character...

    4.5! This was a great romp that also had me very worried that things would not turn out alright -- no traumatically tragic ending here though, hurrah! This has spies, secret identities, girls dressing up as boys dressed as girls, and lots of feelings about Kit Marlowe. GOOD TIMES. ...

    Did you know that Shakespeare?s Twelfth Night was written to capture the would-be assassin of Queen Elizabeth I?! And what do you get when you combine a cross-dressing Catholic called Katherine Arundell, out to avenge the death of her father, and put her slap-dab in the middle of me...

    An Assassin's Guide to Love and Treason is the Shakespeare book I've been waiting for. Not only does it feature the Bard himself, it features opposing protagonists who aren't aware they are in opposition. Boecker cleverly intertwines classic Shakespearean tropes with a story that feels...
