Since the couple has solved a number of crimes together, Emily has no reason to expect otherwise in this case. But Alexander dashes her plucky heroine's hopes with a serious conflict between husband and wife, Colin asserting his duty to protect his wife from harm. The phrase "I will not allow" causes much discord between the newlyweds, Lady Emily of course unable to stem her naturally inquisitive nature, danger or not. There is madness afoot: in the haunting cries of a child heard in the night; in Edith's unsuitable affair and tragic fate; in the mind of a neighbor's wife, who vacillates between hilarity and lapses of memory; and in the blade of a killer's bloody knife that leaves two victims in its wake.Read more ›
I found it difficult to finish the book. I read the Lady Emily series for the fun of it. Emily's character has evolved beautifully (and intriguingly) - discovering who she was and want she was capable of. I found her independence one of her most attractive qualities. To now watch such a bright light dimmed (in keeping with correct 19th century mores or not) disappoints me no end. Putting it frankly.....from my point of view there's precious little reason to keep reading the series. I just cannot get invested in what the title character is doing only to read of her pain when her 'loving' husband steps in and packs her off - all the while enjoying the fruits of her (to that point) endeavors. Because of course he plans on making use of her abilities. She's just to be denied satisfaction of the denouement (at his discretion). That's like sex without the orgasm. All thats left is frustration.Read more ›
Dangerous to Know was worth all the waiting. Alexander mixes plotlines masterfully, capturing both the mind and the heart of the reader. I don't think I can do justice in praise to how she brings her characters to life, and the way she keeps you guessing right to the very end. Not to mention that the research she puts into the historical accuracy of even the smallest details is terribly impressive. I _can_ tell you I'm already finding it hard to wait patiently for the next, but I'll be filling the time in re-reading the series to my wife - a delightful way to spend an evening.
