Novel about Shakespeare

I recently read a novel titled Chasing Shakespeare which reminded me of another mystery novel I read about Shakespeare's identity. The other book is about an actress whose former estranged instructor willed to her a mysterious clue. A relative -nephew? - travels with her to chase down the clues in various cities and protect her. One of the characters is named Rosamund, Rosalind, something like that, but I'm not sure which character. Can anyone help?

Interred with Their Bones 

 The main character is Kate Stanley who is a theatre director and is given a mysterious gift by her former mentor Rosalind Howard; the mentor is subsequently killed which, in part, is what starts the trek for clues.

I read and knit and dance. Compulsively feel yarn. Consume books. Darn tights. Drink too much caffiene. All that good stuff.

Re: Novel about Shakespeare

Yes! That is what I was looking for and probably never would have just stumbled across it. Thanks. 

 

Is there any other good fiction about Shakespeare out there?

Re: Novel about Shakespeare

To be honest I didn't like this one much - stopped halfway through because I got bored and haven't finished it.

 

Jasper Fforde's novels have Shakespeare plot lines, although not directly except in #4 where Hamlet becomes a central character.
