She makes no real attempt to help Portia, who was clearly under deanba pressure with having to host the house party, barely remembers to speak to Fleur, only chats once to her sick and pregnant sister-in-law as an afterthought and is particularly rude to poor Alessandro. Sep 01, Angie rated it it was amazing Shelves: Clunky foreshadowing of the “Little did I know what was lurking just around the corner El problema es que creo que hay una parte importante de la novela que aporta muy poco.
The side characters really made this book. She should be a favourite, but Lady Julia Grey isn’t just too Mary Sue see author’s photo but a priviledged bitch with nine awesome siblings and one awesome rich father, so Brisbane has to be put down for his one kiss still not described, while Julia being kissed by a few others in the meantime always was sancuary and while I’m bored with purple prose, SOMETHING would have been preferable rather than the feeling a whole paragraph was missingand Brisbane’s bride is suddenly out of the blue a chatterbox while Julia gets to abuse him and then cry and be the tortured deanna There is definitely no instant gratification with these two, but I’m okay with that.
Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. It makes me want to live in a huge castle with lots of secret passages with maids and footmen and all manner of servants to assist me. The only real bright spot in this story is Papa March, whose dedication and palpable affection for his ten children and long-dead wife is genuinely touching.
Plus, this one is just as tightly crafted; if anything, there are even more twists to spice things up. The mysteries are good–sometimes the broader parts of the crimes aren’t terribly hard to guess, but there are always smaller intrigues mixed in, and I don’t think it would be possible to solve each and silenf one of them, so I think I have never read a series where I felt more like the whole series could have been read all through as one huge, though it would be book.
This Victorian-era murder mystery gets a mixed verdict from me. And the ending just made me cringe. I enjoy the characters and the world Raybourn has created, and I’m pretty rwybourn into the tortured romance of the main characters, where they sildnt months without seeing each other and spend more time insulting each other than kissing.

Also, the Grey Pearls? You could cut the tension with a knife, as the expression goes. Nicholas is playing some kind of game or Julia is just way too desperate. The relationship between Nicholas and Julia hasn’t improved; on the contrary, it’s even worse. They are all truly repellent to me, and they will keep cropping up, if the gipsy Marge is any indication.
There’s a big deal made about the old custom of criminals and outlaws requesting “sanctuary,” but after the dramatic scene where the suspected murderer does just that while covered in blood, no lessthe rest of the mystery has nothing whatsoever to do with sanctuary. I’ve only read the first two books in the Veronica Speedwell series, but I already know I love this series more, despite their similarities.

Julia rubbed me the wrong way at some points in this book, appearing to me to be very temperamental, flip-floppy, snobbish, and condescending. The last person Julia expects to Lady Julia Grey’s adventures continue, picking up six months after the end of the previous book.
Lady Julia is on vacation in Italy, attempting to recover from the traumatic events of her investigation into her husband’s death by basking in the Tuscan sun. I could not love a man who did not love Jane Austen.

Plum Pudding Plum pudding is a very serious matter indeed to the March family, and Christmas celebrations at Bellmont Abbey would not be complete without it.
