Silent in the Grave I absolutely loved this book and thank you to my Goodreads friend Ruth for recommending it I was a little worried when I first started it, because my expectations had grown so high after reading Ruth s reviews for this book and the following three ones Thankfully, it completely lived up to and actually surpassed my expectations I checked this book out from the library, but will definitely be buying my own copy.It s told in first person narration and I found our heroine, Julia, absolutely hysterical and very, very engaging She at first struck me as a little weak and self indulgent, but she really grows into her own throughout the story and while she is by no means perfect, this only makes her seem that real and makes the book that much better I also liked that she was a little unsure of herself at times and not supremely confident, which made her to me endearing and the occasions where she stands her ground and won t back down that much noticeable and cheer worthy.Nicholas Brisbane, the private inquiry agent who plays her male counterpart throughout the series, is haunted and haunting , mysterious, intelligent, and utterly seductive I loved his irreverence and one quickly and easily sees why he would be popula Everybody loves a good international man of mystery, but private enquiry agent Nicholas Brisbane is Just Too Much he s a prizefighter he s a violin virtuoso he s a duke s grandnephew he s a half blood Rom AND a psychic and a floor wax, and a dessert topping Lady Julia Grey although at times stupid and inconsistent is a interesting character, because she s believably human Born into a family of eccentrics, Julia has spent her entire life suppressing herself, until the death of her husband forces her into e Che Non Mi Vergogni Di Me Stesso, Signore, A Voi Mi Rivolgo Che I Malvagi Tacciano Nella Tomba.Questi Versi Minacciosi, Strappati Da Un Libro Di Salmi, Compongono L Ultima Lettera Minatoria Ricevuta Da Sir Edward Grey, Beniamino Dell Alta Societ Londinese Prima Per Che Possa Mostrare Il Biglietto A Nicholas Brisbane, Un Investigatore Privato Che Ha Assunto Per Proteggerlo, Sir Edward Muore Nella Sua Residenza Di Londra, Davanti Alla Moglie Julia E Ai Suoi Ospiti Convinta Che Il Decesso Del Marito Sia Dovuto A Una Malattia Cardiaca Ereditaria, Julia Non Riesce Ad Accettare La Teoria Di Brisbane Che Edward Non Sia Stato Colpito Da Morte Naturale Bens Dalla Mano Di Un Omicida Dovr Ricredersi Quando Lei Stessa Trover Quell Ultimo Foglietto Tra Le Carte Del Marito Determinata A Scoprire La Verit , Julia Convince L Affascinante Ed Enigmatico Brisbane A Proseguire Nelle Indagini, Alle Quali La Giovane Vedova Prende Parte In Prima Persona, Incurante Dei Pericoli E Fiduciosa Che, Nonostante Tutto Congiuri Contro Di Lei, Giustizia Possa Essere Fatta Brisbane E Julia Inizieranno Cos Un Viaggio Allo Stesso Tempo Intrigante E Sconvolgente Che Sveler Loro Verit Scomode E Imbarazzanti. Victorian era murder mystery Lady Julia Grey is the young widow of Sir Edward, who collapses at a dinner party and soon dies, despite the best efforts of the doctor and Nicholas Brisbane, a dark and mysterious private investigator who had been hired by Edward because of some threats he d received Lady JuliaBrisbane informs Julia that her husband was likely murdered rather than passing away of a lifelong heart condition, but Julia angrily dismisses him Nearly a year later, however, Julia discovers evidence that suggests that Edward may have been murdered after all So Julia tracks down Brisbane Nicholas BrisbaneThe two of them belatedly begin an investigation, attempting to find out who may have murdered Edward and why The trail of clues will lead them to some surprising and unpleasant revelations This is a well written book and I enjoyed the way it immersed me in Victorian society mostly high society, but with a few notable visits to the seamier side of London life I thought the realism of this novel was marred somewhat by main characters who display 21st century o The Lady Julia Grey series is one of my favorites series ever It s one of those that jumped out with the first line and grabbed me inTo say that I met Nicholas Brisbane over my husband s dead body is not entirely accurate Edward, it should be noted, was still twitching upon the floorFrom that line onward, I was completely besotted with it I was a bit nervous for this re read in case it didn t match up Thankfully, I loved it almost as much the second time around Knowing the culprit took some of the tension out this time, but being able to revisit the characters than made up for it I ve read other books in the Historical Mystery genre since this, which was my discovery book for the genre, so I now have a judgmental eye I still think the mystery is decent, although the actual investigation is much less of a focus than Julia and her journey from a mouse of a widow into a woman finding out who she is I am also less tolerant of romance these days, and this was a lot romance than I remember it being But as far as romances go, this is a good one, and one I enjoyed re reading Seriously, Brisbane is one of my favorite male leads ever.I m keeping my rating at 5 st Finding Silent in the Grave turned out to be one of those beautiful, stumbling across the perfect book to fit your mood moments Here I am, staring down the barrel of this pregnancy, willing the last few days to pass faster, and this absolutely delightful Victorian mystery proves just the thing to take my mind off the all too slowly ticking clock Even better, it s the first in a series with the second one already out and the third due to hit shelves in March Silent in the Grave starts out with one of the best opening lines I ve read in ages.To say that I met Nicholas Brisbane over my husband s dead body is not entirely accurate Edward, it should be noted, was still twitching upon the floor.Ha Honestly, who wouldn t want to continue reading after that Does she care Does she not care Is she as calm and composed as she sounds And just who is this Nicholas Brisbane and why is he significant You have to find out Each question is answered, but slowly and carefully, spread across the rest of the novel After her husband s untimely collapse, Lady Julia Grey finds herself a young and surprisingly wealthy widow Having suffered from a heart condition his entire life, his sudden demise was not altogether unexpected That s why, when confronted with an unusual and mysterious private investigator s claim that her late husband employed him to This is a reread I read the first Veronica Speedwell book a while ago now and really enjoyed it When I went to review it I realised I had already read and rated two of these books with Lady Julia Grey, but I didn t remember doing so at all I was halfway through the reread before the story started to come back to me and that was quite telling in itselfthis story is ok, but a bit slow It picked up in the last thir This is our pick for this month s Vaginal Fantasy Hangout Read along and then watch on Feb 27th, 8pm PST THATS MONDAY THE LAST MONDAY OF THE MONTH Apparently it s now necessary to pre emptively address holier than thou trolls who conveniently leave out important words in quoting my own text back at me as they re scolding me for my apparent lack of judgment, or those who leave criticisms in their own reviews of this one.I don t know whether it s a lack of comprehension skills or just willful misreading of words, but let me spell this out very clearly Feminism GOOD.Hammering points exhaustively into a narrative BAD.Or at least not to my taste, while it may obviously cause great celebrating in others Whether an author is writing about women s rights or saving kicked puppies or the need for universal healthcare, these things need to fit seamlessly into the narrative of a novel, not create a situation in which those who AGREE with the cause to be annoyed And if a woman is behaving outside the norms of the societal norms of historical period, her defiance needs to be written in a convincing way See Sarah Waters, Anne Perry, and countless other authors who have written strongly feminist books in which the odds were very much against the women depicted in them, but also respect history enough not to entirely rewrite it Lady Julia, in her pampered, earnest life, doesn t even come close in her circumstance, actions, or char Nope Just, nope.
