Publisher's Summary

Set in the lush countryside of Normandy, France, this new novel of suspense featuring Lady Emily Hargreaves is filled with intrigue, romance, mysterious deaths, and madness.

Returning from her honeymoon with Colin Hargreaves and a near brush with death in Constantinople, Lady Emily convalesces at her mother-in-law's beautiful estate in Normandy. But the calm she so desperately seeks is shattered when, out riding a horse, she comes upon the body of a young woman who has been brutally murdered. The girl's wounds are identical to those inflicted on the victims of Jack the Ripper, who has wreaked havoc across the channel in London. Emily feels a connection to the young woman and is determined to bring the killer to justice.

Pursuing a trail of clues and victims to the beautiful medieval city of Rouen and a crumbling chateau in the country, Emily begins to worry about her own sanity: she hears the cries of a little girl she cannot find and discovers blue ribbons left in the child's wake. As Emily is forced to match wits with a brilliant and manipulative killer, only her courage, keen instincts and formidable will to win can help her escape becoming his next victim.

Disapointing

The Biggest problem is the narrator. She makes lady Emily sound like a child and her male voices are pathetically artificial. I just can’t get into this book and I love Tasha Alexander’s lady Emily series. Hopefully this is the only one this narrator reads.

Sad this is the last listenable book in series.

This was an okay installation in the series. Not the strongest (thus far), but if you've read (or listened) up to this point, you're invested in the characters and want to know what's up next for Lady Emily et al. It's why I listened to this book.

Sadly, I was pretty disappointed and it only gets worse from here.

Bad news = the next book, A Crimson Warning, switches narrators AGAIN, and it's awful. Horrible. Worse yet, the narrator in book six, stays with the series from there on out. So, this book is the last listenable book in the audio book version of the series. Since the plot in this book is the weakest thus far, and a lot of the characterizations we've come to rely on are basically abandoned, you may want to save a credit and call it a day before bothering with this book. I don't recommend going beyond this one, in any case.

Overall, I've really enjoyed the series and have left favorable reviews on earlier books. Sadly, there are multiple aspects of this particular book that are frustrating and annoying. This low point really brought down my regard for the series as a whole.

Mild / vague spoilers: Emily's mother-in-law drama had me grinding my teeth, and Colin's misogyny went mostly unchecked, leaving me super depressed and angry. I like Emily because she's a badass and she's clever, fierce, and breaks all the social norms. This book found our heroine cowering and crying, and being berated and bossed around by her husband. Wtf?!? What a let down, and what a sad way to end the audiobook version of this series. I was hoping the next book would redeem things, but the narrator for Crimson Warning and in is so effing god awful, I can't tolerate listening to it.

TLDR: save a credit and a lot of time and move on now.

Brilliant story... Brilliant storyteller

I am so enjoying this series. Emily is a woman I would think I would be friends with and that makes listening all the more pleasurable.
Tasha Alexander's stories are always so well written with such good twists and turns. And Justine Eyre is an amazing storyteller... her inflections and voices are just so easy to listen to. Thank you again for coming back. Can't wait to dive into the next in series!!!
