    " 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. "

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

    " 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. "

    " 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. "

    " 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. "

    " 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. "

    " 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. "
