Publisher's Summary

A ruined abbey on a beautiful estate in Derbyshire, a murdered peer, and a most unlikely romance make New York Times best-seller Tasha Alexander's new novel Behind the Shattered Glass absolutely irresistible

Anglemore Park is the ancestral home of Lady Emily Hargreave's husband Colin.

But the stately calm of country life is destroyed when their neighbor, the Marquess of Montagu, bursts through the French doors from the garden and falls down dead in front of the shocked gathering. But who has a motive for murdering the young aristocrat?

The lovely cousin who was threatened by his engagement, the Oxford friend he falsely accused of cheating, the scheming vicar's daughter he shamelessly seduced or the relative no one knew existed who appears to claim the Montagu title? Who is the mysterious woman seen walking with him moments before he was brutally attacked? The trail takes listeners into the gilded world of a British manor house and below stairs to the servants who know all the secrets. One family's hidden past and a forbidden passion are the clues to a puzzle only Lady Emily can solve.

Romance, fantasy, and murder

As a mystery, I would have given a five-didn't see the resolution coming at all! However, the extremely complex issue of class distinction is handled in such a cavalier manner that it annoyed me. It is a fantasy--future reader, and a romance, with a good mystery added in to it. Enjoy!

Spot on narration!

What did you love best about Behind the Shattered Glass?

I am so glad that Audible decided to have Bianca Amato narrate all of the later half of the series. She brings a wealth of character voices to the stories and delivers her narration in a believable manner. Despite many of the negative reviews for this particular book in the Lady Emily series, I enjoyed it. Granted, the plot wasn't as complex as some of her other books and I seriously doubt the ending was overly realistic, but overall it was still an enjoyable listen.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Not really as it was predictable in several places.

Have you listened to any of Bianca Amato’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have listened to a few of the stories she has narrated and her performance for this story was just as good as previous readings.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I don't know about one sitting but I would say that I wanted to complete the story in a short amount of time.
