Charles's reign began with an unpopular friendship with George Villiers, Duke of Buckingham, who used his influence against the wishes of other nobility.

Charles I was born in Fife on 19 November 1600, the second son of James VI of Scotland and Anne of Denmark. On the death of Elizabeth I in 1603 James became king of England and Ireland. Charles's reign began with an unpopular friendship with George Villiers, Duke of Buckingham, who used his influence against the wishes of other nobility. Buckingham was assassinated in 1628. There was ongoing tension with parliament over money - made worse by the costs of war abroad.

Margaret Phillips is a powerful woman, one of the first women to become an Archdeacon. Intelligent, confident, and capable, she has reached a stage in her life where both her career and her private life are harmonious. And there's one thing she can be sure of—the love of her husband Hal. Valerie Marler, best-selling author, is in control of her fictional world and her own life as well. Beautiful, rich, and with as many men as she wants, Valerie calls the shots. Until she meets Hal Phillips, a happily married man with no interest in what she has to offer. Rosemary Finch, the vicar's wife, is neither rich nor beautiful, and her life has not been an easy one. She loves her husband, and they both adore their daughter Daisy. Then something happens that will shatter her equilibrium—she, too, meets Hal Phillips, the man Valerie Marler wants and can't have.

Thinking this would be "cozy" type mystery, I settled down for a light evening read of "Unruly Passions". I was surprised and delighted to discover a sensitively drawn portrayal of a variety of characters, all of whom were multi-dimensional. At times, the reader can play with books as if they contain blocks instead of characters, interchanging them at will since they are lacklustre. Not so here. Ms. Charles has a village, the Vicar and his wife, the female Archdeacon and her husband and the village newcomer: wealthy potboiler writer and femme fatale. Anything anticipated as deja vu from this seemingly banal mixture will be totally different from the reader's expectation. As carefully as a microsurgeon's delvings, the writer delicately examines in surprising fashion the reverberations of passions which become unruly. There is a mystery twist, but it rides tandem with the denouement and resolution of the story. Sorry when the last page had to be turned.

Kate Charles' writing is a breath of fresh air. Closely observed details of life and love in village settings draw the reader in, while anxiety for the characters' fates keeps the pages turning. My only problem is that Charles' earlier work does not seem to be available as ebooks.

I read this because a website said Kate Charles was a pseudonym for Julia Spencer-Fleming. All I can say is that if it is true, she has greatly improved since writing this book. Superficially there is a correlation in both series of novels involving female clergy (Anglican in England in this book and Episcopal in New York state in the Spencer-Fleming Claire Fergusson novels) small town life, and relationships between a married man and another woman which involve deep feelings held in check by the character's moral values. Throw in murder for something else for them to deal with as well as some similar secondary characters and there are definitely obvious comparisons. However, this book is like wading through molasses. The plot could have been more complex. The characters are flat. I forced myself to finish it, but I will not be looking for the other books that are apparently about at least two of these same people.
