by GoluxGirl on January 27, 2011This is a smart & entertaining late-Victorian mystery. The author went to great lengths to ensure that her lead, Lady Emily, was not anachronistically feminist, but also relatable and admirable for modern readers. It wasn't too difficult to pinpoint the bad guy (pretty standard fare), but it was fun to follow Emily's charachter development as the story unfolded. And the mystery itself was unique enough and well-written enough to hold my attention for the entire novel.
The back says that fans of Elizabeth Peters and Anne Perry will enjoy this book. I agree with that -- there are clear parallels between the Peabody and Pitt mystery series. I'd place Tasha Alexander right between those two eminent authors on the scale of light-heartedness (Perry is definitely the most serious of the 3, and Peters can be downright silly at times, in a good way).
I'm looking forward to the next installment.
