I love this series! I truly enjoy the character of Lady Julia. Yes, she may be a little bit spoiled and can be at times whiney, but I cannot seem to turn the mp3 player off. The plot was engaging. This story has quite a few turns and twists, at one point I even held my own breath waiting for … well, you’ll just have to read/hear that part. Her discriptions of the area made me want to go there. I hope to find a quaint bead and breakfast close to Darjeeling to visit some day.
All the positives done with, I have a few issues with this story. I felt as though there was a book missing between the previous one and this one. The closeness between Julia and Brisbane was just not there. Over all it was a good story, but the chemistry was missing. It felt like a form letter. Most of the story was predictable, untill close to the end. Another issue I have is the overuse of some words. Reflected, waspish, remonstrated, peevish, melancholia, and countered were a few of the words I listened to over and over and over again. I felt the area must have been full of mirrors for all the reflecting that was done. Doesn’t she have a thesaurus? Bottom line I enjoy this series in spite of Ms. Raybourn's lack of words.
