Bestselling author Tasha Alexander crafts compelling works that are equally celebrated for their intricate plotting and historical authenticity.

A Crimson Warning features beloved character Lady Emily Hargreaves, who can usually be found waltzing or reading from the aeneid when not fighting for women’s suffrage. Lady Emily’s enjoyment of the season, however, comes to an abrupt end when the red paint being splashed on doorsteps heralds ill—even deadly—tidings.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rebecca | 2/7/2014

    " When members of high society wake up to find red paint splashed on their front steps, and their deepest secrets revealed, Lady Emily is on the case. Fun and fast paced, very enjoyable. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nora Carroll | 2/6/2014

    " I'm a big fan of Tasha Alexander from way back, but I have to say that I found A Crimson Warning to be the best Lady Emily book yet. This book, like all of the others in the series, has an engaging storyline, vivid characters, and intelligent attention to historical detail, but in this book most of the action takes place in London. Alexander clearly knows her history and is intimately familiar with the setting. She makes brilliant use of it in this book. Highly recommended. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stacey | 2/3/2014

    " It's probably a 3 1/2 star book, but I am giving it 4 because it is the perfect light, fluffy summertime read. The only thing I can really take issue with is that having a perfect character - an intelligent, pretty, rich heroine, with the perfect husband, and friends with Renoir and Monet too boot - gets tiresome after awhile. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jodi | 1/31/2014

    " I really enjoy these books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Grace | 1/28/2014

    " Had a very good mystery that I couldn't figure out until she revealed. Have I mentioned that this series is a completely clean read? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Noelle Walsh | 1/27/2014

    " Though this book got off to a slow start, I found this book enjoyable. I got caught up in it. To find out it was Barnes and not that foul woman who took a smack at her husband, an innocent bystander at the time, was quite the shock. I will admit that I wanted to find out what Colin's dark secret was. I'd probably be pestering the man to tell me what it was, but that's just me. Makes me wish I had the rest of the series to date so I could read more of Lady Emily's adventures. I don't often find female character that strong and it was a welcome relief in a world where strong female characters, truly strong female characters, are so hard to come by a many of the female leads you read about prove to be lacking in some areas and aren't as strong as one first thought. It's good to have a character like Lady Emily, who is of sound mind, a strong lead and is unafraid of what society thinks of her. Tasha Alexander proves to be a master of the female lead. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amanda | 1/25/2014

    " Another fun pithy read in the Lady Emily series. Write faster Tasha Alexander!!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jenni | 1/20/2014

    " Great read ... as always, the characters come to life and sweep me away! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Meredith | 1/6/2014

    " Once again a great mystery read. It was nice to see Emily and Colin working together more on this one and to be back in London. I did miss Jeremy quite a bit. It will be interesting to see in future novels how Emily's official role in the investigations evolves. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chelsea | 1/3/2014

    " I like the characters and the setting in this series; however, the mystery was not very mysterious in this particular book. A bit anti-climactic and disappointing at the end. I only allowed 3 starts because I like the series in general. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Margaret Slobodinsky | 12/22/2013

    " Tasha Alexander is one of my favorite author's and now I can't wait for the continuation of the story... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michaela | 12/8/2013

    " Yes...this is one of my "better than eating an entire box of chocolates" novels...it's decadent but decently written and captivating. That's all I ask of my Books to Read on the Train. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carrie | 11/13/2013

    " I have enjoyed this series but I think I am about done with them. It was really slow getting through it. I didn't really care about the ending and I love a good mystery. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jamb | 10/25/2013

    " I normally love these books, but I found this one had a few too many characters. I found myself flipping back and forth to remember who was who. The story was good, as usual. Maybe the flaw is with me and my poor memory! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathleen | 9/23/2013

    " This one was kept you on the edge of your seat! Very interesting and great read! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary Kay | 6/30/2013

    " Set in London in 1818, this book deals with scandals involving high society types. We know who will be targeted next because their houses get splashed with red paint. Unfortunately, murder also occurs. Lady Emily is poised to solve the mystery. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lesley | 5/21/2013

    " Great read for anyone who likes historical mysteries "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kate | 3/31/2013

    " This is another in the Lady Emily series. I love the historical element added to the whodunit story. The story takes place in England in the 1880s and there is great dialogue and distinct characters that keep me coming back for more. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rani | 10/21/2012

    " It's nice to see Emily shucking the Lindon ton! I wish Mrs. Hargreaves had been in it but maybe she's making the move back from the Continent in the next one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tequila | 8/26/2012

    " I like the fact that the author has put Lady Emily on a path of learning and advancement in her skills and her emotional capacity for dealing with complex situations. Rather than a fully formed Victorian Female 007, she is more 007 in Training - which seems realistic and interesting. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristin | 6/28/2012

    " My favorite Lady Emily book yet! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jahnelle | 3/11/2012

    " I love this series! Read my full review here. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachel Wheeler | 2/8/2012

    " Another character and series I really enjoy. The last two books in the series weren't as good as this one. This story puts Emily back in London and in her element. I loved it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gigi | 12/31/2011

    " This was more an intellectual mystery rather than having Lady Emily in peril, but I enjoyed it more than the last book. "
