Plenty of intrigue and suspense, romantic without being cheesy or tawdry. Well developed characters and a very well written story line. Delightful all round!
What I loved most about this book was the articulate language and sentences. The plot was good, but listening to the sweet expression of English was wonderful.
I am a retired Court Reporter and I LOVE books. All kinds of books but my favorites are mysteries and period books. I like civil war books and some biographies.
I loved it. I think it's the best of the Thomas Pitt series. It's always good to find out how the characters met.
This story was a mini Monk and Hester story I prefer Monk
Not sure looking for a new series
Yes she was great
The marriage proposals to the sister's a day after another sister was brutally murdered rather stupid
I expected better of Anne Perry
I'm a great fan of this series and can only enjoy books by listening because of failing vision, so I scarf these up as soon as they become available. Hni hint😊 I is a treat to add this book to my library's virtual shelf.
I haven't read the print version.
It depends on the friend. There are other books that I'd be more likely to recommend.
I almost always enjoy Davina Porter's narrations and did for this book. No one specific character.
Not extreme - just a sense of disappointment. I purchased it based on the many 5-star reviews but wasn't as satisfied as those listeners were. It seemed shallow and the murderer became obvious about 2/3 the way through.
I had just finished The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins, and wanted another Victorian mystery. This was a great book. I look forward to the rest of the series. The characters were very interesting, and the mystery was engaging. I did feel it ended rather abruptly however, but at least there are more books in the series to continue.
Excellent characters, story and performance. I especially appreciated the accurate portrayal of complex human emotions.
