It does from that description, doesn't it? Actually it's literary fiction set around the Turkish invasion of Cyprus (Christy Lefteri's A Watermelon, a Fish, and a Bible).

I'm in prison in Salisbury circa 1180 and thinking about sex (again!).

Are always to be found between the hooves of horses
For never will cowards fall down there.'

So-so. So far it's just a lite fluffy mystery. Reminds me of the Botticelli Secret without the potty mouth.

Long, long ago in the city of Corinth, plotting the demise of my ex-husband's new bride and father-in-law. And after all I've done for him!
