Format: Hardcover
This is the seventh book in the Lady Grace Mysteries series, about Lady Grace Cavendish, a thirteen-year-old Maid of Honour at the court of Queen Elizabeth I.

It is April 1570, and the entire court is busy with preparations for the wedding of Penelope Knollys, one of Grace's fellow Maids of Honour. But the plans are interrupted when part of the Queen's shipment of gold and jewels is stolen. There are multiples witnesses to the crime, but their stories don't match up. Grace is determined to get to the bottom of the mystery and find out how the real thief is, but this will be one of her most confusing investigations ever, as every clue she finds seems to lead in a completely different direction.

This is another good book from the Lady Grace Mysteries series. As always it has many details on various aspects of life in Elizabethan England, and the mystery kept me guessing for quite a while. Readers who enjoyed the other books in the series will definitely want to read this one as well.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Book Bear on October 28, 2007
Format: Hardcover
Gold is the seventh book in the Lady Grace Mysterys. The plot is pretty guessable and the mystery pretty easy to solve. The characters are pretty well developed and it's always fun to lean about Queen Elizabeth's court. All in all this is not the best but defanitly not the worst in the series. I like it most because Lady Grace starts to have an intrest in guys like all the other ladys of the court, this is fun to read about. A pretty easy read, I would reccomende this as a short enjoyable book.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
When part of a loan to the Queen is stolen, Grace thinks a courtier is responsible and sets herself to unmask him. But when one candidate turns out to be innocent, she reluctantly must suspect a gentleman she admires.

Interesting juxtaposition of Grace's detecting with the wedding celebration of one of the Queen's former Maids of Honor. As always in this YA series, whodunnit is fairly obvious, but Grace is a likable enough character to carry it off and the title is definitely relevant to the story. And the publisher finally put an Elizabethan girl on the cover instead of the 1950's schoolgirl of earlier books!

Grace tries to find a stolen shipment of gold, while helping prepare for the wedding for one of her fellow Maids of Honor. This book introduces a possible love interest for Grace, who I hope returns in later books.
