In The Borgia Betrayal, Sara Poole continues with her story of the Francesca, the poisoner for the Borgias, which was begun in Poison. If I hadn’t read the first book, I don’t think that I would have bothered with this one. The novel doesn’t seem to advance the plot too much. Francesca is uncertain about the men in her love life, she’s still trying to kill the same guy…I kept reading hoping that there would be a major development, but the book just seemed to continue plodding on. I don’t think that I’ll be reading any more of this series.
