I‘m not sure how I lost track of this series, but I‘m so glad I picked this up. An interesting mystery set at the beginning of the Edwardian period , plus some family backstory from the early 15th century. Lady Emily is such a likable character, and the supporting characters are wonderful. 4⭐️ And since the Tower of London is the setting for several scenes, one of my pictures from there.

Sunraven Love that photo! Makes me want to go now... 3w

“Anyone who knows me is all too aware that I cannot claim a close acquaintance with the virtue of patience, despite numerous attempts to woo it.”

Ah, yes, my favorite prayer: Lord , give me patience and give it to me now! 😂

Andra_library Question: do you sing or is Soprano your name? My daughter is an Opera Soprano. 1mo
Lynnsoprano @Andra_library I sing. I‘m a retired music teacher/choral director. I still have a few private voice students and am a active church musician. Like your daughter, I‘m classically trained, but the past few months I‘ve been working on jazz techniques. Where is your daughter singing? 1mo
Andra_library She is a senior at University of New Mexico. Looking at Grad schools. 1mo
Lynnsoprano @Andra_library Impressive! Good luck to her. I love when I get the chance to hear former students sing. I have one who is actually on her way to Germany to sing. I‘m hoping she‘ll post some video. 4w

I haven‘t read a Lady Emily mystery in a couple years, but I‘ve always enjoyed them. I took this along this afternoon when I went with hubby to his doctor appointment. Too much drama in the waiting room to get much read, though. Actually, it would make a good story. I was laughing with the office manager before we left; she swears sitting in the waiting room is as good as going to a Broadway show 😄

rretzler I read the first one years ago and enjoyed it. For some reason, I never followed up. A couple of years ago, I thought I would do so, but could only remember the vague plot of the first book and wasn't sure of the author. I went looking for it and ended up reading Deanna Raybourn's Lady Julia books instead! While I enjoy her Vernonica Speedwell books, the Lady Julia books were frustrating. I need to go back and read Alexander's Lady Emily books 1mo
Lynnsoprano @rretzler I liked the first couple Lady Julia books, but then the series went downhill, and her next few books weren‘t very good. But I‘m enjoying Veronica very much. And, as I‘m reading this, I‘d forgotten what an excellent character Lady Emily is. 4w
rretzler The Lady Julia series definitely went downhill didn‘t they? Thanks for reminding me that I really need to read Lady Emily! 4w

Latest installment in the Lady Emily series. Dual storylines and timelines this time wherein we get to learn a bit more about Colin's family background. In all honesty I found myself more drawn to the older timeline; the one that didn't have Emily and Colin solving a mystery. Not the best in the series and it's hard to tell where things may be going next but still a solid addition.
