Deadly Daggers by Joyce Lavene

Back to the Renaissance Faire!  What fun.

Jessie is researching ancient crafts in modern times for her PhD, and what better place to research than the Faire?  Where everything is sort of ancient, except that Lady Visa is very welcome.

The lovey-dovey bits add some fun to the book.  Besides Jessie and her boyfriend Chase, there are three or four other sort-of-relationships that are very entertaining, and which add to the murder drama.

Ooh. Is that a spoiler?  Somebody dies.  Surprise!
