The Fox of Cordovia is a historical novel of a factious island close to Scotland. Linda Weaver Clarke captures the spirit of a people who had recently won a major victory over a dictator king. This novel is the third in The Rebel Series and continues as the districts are electing their own leaders. The king is still at large, hiding from his crimes against the people of Cordovia, and the rebel groups have disbanded and gone back to their old jobs. Caroline is engaged to a man predicted to win the vote as the mayor of Laketown. After overhearing an evil plot to abduct a woman to further his campaign, Caroline must get in touch with the notorious Fox. The Fox and his men were a major key in freeing the people and ousting the king. Someone hired Jesse Hanover to protect her and together they must persuade the Fox to help.
I found The Fox of Cordovia a sweet and compelling story as Linda Weaver Clarke continues with the lives of the rebels who fought for freedom. This novel can be read as a standalone, but there is a charm to this series that begs for us to read all the books. With a solid mystery in place, the characters find themselves alone as they dodge the law, allowing a romance to bloom again that the reader will love. With riveting scenes, the author has woven in two topics dear to her; spousal abuse and unjust rulers. Well-rounded characters, a solid plot, and avoiding the law all make this an exciting novel. I listened to the audio book performed by Carolyn Kashner and found her voice pleasant. This narrator changed her voice appropriately to bring the characters to life. Kashner is consistent in her performance of the many voices within the novel. Highly recommended for those who love historical romance.
