They love being in the studio but have to beware as deadly arsenic is used in one of the paints!
One of Lady Grace's fellow Maids of Honour, Carmina, begins to act rather strangely - she seems confused and always tired.

Review by wyvernfriend
The Queen's portrait painters are hard at work, one of the Maids of Honour is posing as the queen and Lady Grace is set to keep her distracted by reading to her. Grace is more distracted with the art. When one of the other ladies becomes ill and Grace finds that the symptoms can be produced by paint she starts to investigate. This time it is a matter of life and death.The title pretty much gives a lot of the plot away but these stories are more about the Elizabethan experience than mystery and it is an interesting read.
