A Crimson Warning | [Tasha Alexander]

A Crimson Warning

Best-selling author Tasha Alexander crafts compelling works that are equally celebrated for their intricate plotting and historical authenticity. A Crimson Warning features beloved character Lady Emily Hargreaves, who can usually be found waltzing or reading from the Aeneid when not fighting for women’s suffrage. Lady Emily’s enjoyment of the season, however, comes to an abrupt end when the red paint being splashed on doorsteps heralds ill - even deadly - tidings.

    "The perfect historical mystery"

    - Excellent narrator
    - Well developed characters
    - Great depiction of the period
    - Captivating story

    This is number 6 in the Lady Emily series and, unfortunately, the only one currently available from audible. More Tasha Alexander please!!!

    "Historical mystery series"

    I've read all the other books in this series and was glad to finally see this one and the next one on Audible. The main characters are intelligent and the mysteries are well thought out. The heroine works smartly within the restrictions of the society of her times.

    Story
    "insipid cliche cocktail"

    After a month-long diet of Ian Rankin novels and world war histories, I tried this to clear my reading palate, but found this listen only dull and derivative rather than the light humorous distraction I sought. It's a weak mixture of Amelia Peabody and Lady Julia Grey, with an attempted dash of Phyrne Fisher, but it didn't hang together for me. The heroine taught herself Latin, has a "remarkable" Jeeves-like butler, assists a husband that, in spite of wealth and position, is "invaluable to the Queen" as an agent (we are told this multiple times); all seem to exist in a London that smacks of Regency novel characteristics despite the Victorian setting. The mystery never really takes off, but at least the listen is PG - no actual bodice ripping.

    This narrator usually does a better job than in the present novel. She seems to be trying too hard to draw out vowels -- If there is such a thing as "truthiness,' then she's attempting historiness.

    "Really wanted to like this,but was disappointed"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Unfortunately, the heroine didn't ring true is so many ways. I had read one other Tasha Alexander book and was not impressed, but decided to give this a try. Much as I wanted to like it, I kept being jolted by unbelievable turns. It just doesn't ring at all true for the time period.
