The Peacock Throne is the newest book by Lisa Karon Richardson and it is great! As a fan of Christian Historical Fiction and Suspense books, I was intrigued by the book. The first thing I noticed about this book was the front cover. The girl, peacock feather, and the sailing ship made me curious about what this book was about. Lisa Karon Richardson writes with authority on our world in the 1700's especially USA and Europe, military strategies during this time, monarchies, the caste system, proper etiquette, cross country traveling, police procedures, detective work. From the start, The Peacock Throne is action packed and it continues on this steady pace through out the whole book. I was very drawn in from the start and had a very hard time putting this book down. The cast of characters in this book are great, real people in real situations. I especially enjoyed the interactions between Lydia and Anthony Douglas. Two opposite people thrown together by tragedy and a need for answers about the lives and deaths of their loved ones. They may also find out things about each other and how they are connected by more than just their dead relatives. I really felt like I was there on this adventure with the characters and definitely couldn't put this book down. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Christian Historical Fiction and Suspense, you will not be disappointed. I look forward to reading more from Lisa Karon Richardson! I give this book 5 STARS.
