Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Barbara | 2/9/2014

    " Sadly this one never really got my interest. In fact, I was bored several times and put it down. Hope I'll like the next one more. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cheryl Cufari | 2/4/2014

    " Written with flashbacks about a character long dead and her relationship to the mystery made for an interesting slant on the plot. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lesley | 1/26/2014

    " The best yet. Can't wait for Tash Alexander to write the next in the series "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kathleen | 1/24/2014

    " The ending intrigued me enough to go to on the next in the series when it arrives but the journey through Venice was far less than I would expect from Colin and Emily. The only moments of pleasure for me were the background story of Besina and the scenes with the sassy medium Caterina. Everything else was just plain white rice reading. Bland and somewhat uninteresting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kate Sometomato | 1/23/2014

    " A fun, romantic period mystery. Well-done. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rebecca | 1/21/2014

    " Loved it. Definitely one of my favorites in the 'Lady Emily' series. A great escape. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeanne Mulcahy | 1/19/2014

    " I enjoyed this one more that the previous one. Lady Emily did not seem to whine so much about the fate of women not having as much freedom as men. I always enjoy her exotic location. I wonder where we'll be going next. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lisa | 1/15/2014

    " Not one of my favorites in this series. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Patricia | 11/18/2013

    " I did not mind the main story so much but I really disliked the older story interwoven throughout and I just decided life was too short to spend it reading a book I was liking less with each turn of the page. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pamela | 11/9/2013

    " This book was very good. I really got into the story. It goes from the present to the past, so you have to pay attention. It brought tears, and joy. I felt a little spent, when it ended, but wished there was more. That is a sign of a book I would read again. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sabrina Flynn | 10/6/2013

    " Started off slow, but picked up speed and finally caught my interest. The mystery was as maze like as Venice with an ending that left me looking forward to the next installment of this entertaining series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Larisa | 8/24/2013

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Berta | 5/7/2013

    " I liked this book in the series the least. I really enjoyed the Colin and Emily in the previous books and would like to see the characters developed further as the series continues. It was a disappoint for me. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Melissa | 3/10/2013

    " Seemed a bit of a crib from Romeo and Juliette. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 KMW | 12/9/2012

    " I really enjoyed the various plots and stories in this book, although I am a little disappointed that it seems there are no more descriptions of English aristocratic society in the later books like there were in the first two of the series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Eve | 11/24/2012

    " Eh-- like most series, the first ones were fun, frivolous reads but they are progressively getting worse. "
