Publisher's Summary

In The Adventuress, the next entry in the New York Times best-selling series by Tasha Alexander, Lady Emily Hargreaves travels to the south of France where an apparent suicide may be something far more sinister

Emily and husband Colin have come to the French Riviera for what should be a joyous occasion - the engagement arty of her lifelong friend Jeremy, Duke of Bainbridge, and Amity Wells, an American heiress. But the merrymaking is cut short with the shocking death of one of the party in an apparent suicide. Not convinced by the coroner's verdict, Emily must employ all of her investigative skills to discover the truth and avert another tragedy.

Not up to par, but still enjoyable.

I love this serious, but I agree with other reviewers- the characters just seemed different.

Very Entertaining!

Amazing the imagination of this fabulous author! Again have to note her incorporation of history that brings the story alive even more.

Even though I thought I had this figured out it was much more intricate with layers. Hope that Jeremy may finally find his match

A Wonderful Story

Again, Tasha Alexander shows her dexterity by weaving a story very unlike her previous novels. I really enjoy and look forward to the surprises she unveils in each of her books. I will be starting the next one shortly!

Tasha and Bianca do it again!

Tasha’s Alexander’s stories are made better by the narration of Bianca Amato. Bravo, ladies, bravo.
