Kate Quinn is one of my favorite historical fiction authors. Her series set in ancient Rome and Renaissance Italy make the time periods come alive. Her characters are well-drawn while her place descriptions are well conveyed without overcoming you with detail. This novel is the second in her Borgia series and features Giulia Farnese (the Pope's mistress), her bodyguard Leonello, and her cook Carmelina. A lot happens to these three between 1494 and 1498 with more than one surprise twist along the way. I appreciated the author's character list and the historical notes at the end of the book.
