What would you ask for if God owed you a favour?
King Richard III chooses to travel to the twenty-first century to repair his reputation.
After more than five hundred years of Tudor-inspired propaganda, Richard’s name is in tatters. Reviled for crimes he never committed, he has his work cut out for him. He needs help, and decides his distant cousin Ned York is just the person to assist him.
But mild-mannered Ned has problems of his own. Recently fired from his prestigious law firm due to a mistake by his ex-girlfriend, Ned is trying to figure out what to do with his life. The last thing he needs is some cousin he’s never met, with a wacky story to tell, arriving at his doorstep in Colorado. Nevertheless, Ned finds he is unable to resist Richard’s plea for support and begins an adventure that turns his life even more upside down . . . while discovering Lindsey, the love of his life.
If only Lindsey can get around the fact that she thinks Ned is a little kooky. After all, Ned has now become convinced that Richard is actually the real king come back to life.
The Arrival of Richard III is a romping tale through the centuries, in which medieval and modern man comically clash.
Kari August, her husband and three children, enjoy time between their home outside Washington DC and a cabin bordering Rocky Mountain National Park. Though she has a post graduate degree in the sciences, she has always enjoyed good historical fiction. She firmly believes that getting dirty in the garden is always preferable to any kind of indoor work. She relishes traveling, often bringing along her two golden doodles Tiki and Hugo. And if she isn’t currently on holiday, she is certainly planning her next adventure. The Arrival of Richard III is Kari’s second novel. Her first novel, Reaching Rocky Mountain Jim, is based on the true-life story of Englishwoman Isabella Bird’s climatic journey with a rugged trapper in 1871 Colorado. Kari August regularly contributes her articles to Ezine. Her blog, What to do in Estes Park, highlights activities in and around the area surrounding beautiful Rocky Mountain National Park.
