This, and the others in the series, are quick and light reads. I enjoyed the series because I was able to get into the characters. They had some depth, and were very likeable. I enjoy gay romance novels very much, being a gay man myself, but I have pretty much given up reading those books written by women. Now, I know that's probably politically incorrect, but here's why I feel this way. Many, many books of this genre written by women are lopsided. One character is obviously male, while his partner is a thinly veiled female. Some authors even go on to describe the one person as feminine. One is strong and dominant, the other frail and dependent. The real world is not like that, and I know of no gay couples who fit that description, including my partner and myself. Now if that's what you like to read about, that's fine, it just isn't my taste. That's why I enjoyed this series, because the partners are equals. Neither is the "man" or "woman" in the relationship. It felt like a real relationship to me.

The story and characters are very well developed, the mystery is intriging and the sex, while present, doesn't occur every 5 pages, like a formula from a writing class. I've read all 7 novels in this series. This is one of the best and also the first.

This is not a book with modern characters placed in the early 20th century. This is a book of early 20th century characters placed in the early 20th century. There's a big difference. The story is well crafted, the sex is understated, as it should be for that era, and the characters are rich. Held my interest to the end. Absolutely recommended.

I was hoping for a Josh Lanyon style cozy mystery set in 1920's Cambridge (well, a girl can hope, can't she...) This is much less than that. The mystery was not interesting, the writing was not great and the characterization, which could have been the element to carry it all, was not strong enough. So it was pleasantly boring, and then just a bit silly. But I was cross, because I felt that it could have been so much better. So even though I read it from start to finish, I'm only giving it three stars because I won't reread it nor will I buy any more of this series.

3637 locations, but felt longer.. it really got a bit boring, despite all the murders!

I have become a huge fan of Charlie Cochrane and her lead characters, Jonty and Orlando. I have read the entire series on KIndle and also have given the series as a gift. Right from the get-go I was swept up into the tale of the two professors who inadvertently, and somewhat reluctantly, become amateur sleuths and solve a crime of multiple murders on the campus of the college in Cambridge where they teach. The story is well-written, bautifully told, engrossing and filled with humor, even under the circumstances. I have already pre-ordered "Lessons in Trust," volume 7, in the paperback edition as well. Book number 8 will come out later this year and my excitement is already building.

If you want a great series of delightful reading you simply cannot go wrong with this one!

Fun mystery and M/M romance. It does move a bit slowly, and I am not just talking about the romance, the pace of the overall story is measured. That being said, I enjoyed the historical atmosphere and the development of the main characters, and will be purchasing more books in this series.

I have a passion for M/M romance and this series (all nine books) are terrific <there is a tenth book that takes place after seven but it's not on Kindle yet even though it was published in 2013 ... odd ... but I guess it's coming out in April 2015). If looking for detailed sex, these are not your books. The love between the two main characters is sweet and wonderful; devoted and everlasting. Just the way romance should be. And when the sex happens, it's a slow burn that is not full of angst; these two know who they are and beside whom they belong. And along the way, they solve mysteries. Some are better than others (I think the author gets better as she goes along) but I enjoyed them all. Book eight requires lots of tissues and I was sad to see the departure of several key characters but time marches on. PLEASE ... if you read one - which I highly recommend - read them all. Now that I'm done, I'm a bit sad in that I have to wait for the next two (YEAH!) books to be issued later this year (wish they were available to pre-order on Amazon). These guys are like family ... a comfortable story to curl up with at days end and follow the adventures.

Lessons in Love is the first of eight books dealing with the developing lives of Jonty Stewart and Orlando Coppersmith. Each of the books is a gem and they should be read in sequence. The era for seven of the eight is the first decade of the 20th century in Britain. While one reviewer was bothered by the impossibility of being openly gay (after all Oscar Wilde had been imprisoned) I was impressed with the grit and determination of Jonty and Orlando to develop their relationship in such a hostile environment. Note that Jonty was the son of nobility and wealth even though his father refused to use his title. So, befitting the era, communications, dress, and behavior are very formal. But you end up loving both of Jonty's parents. Yet, there is humor throughout the series. Also, in each there is a murder mystery the two resolve. And I seldom guessed who the perps were until near the end. Book #8 will likely be a "three-hanky" one. The horrors of war (World War I here) are poignantly laid out and the reader figures that all is lost. I had a hard time reading it.
