Very captivating story, even though I have not read the first 3 books in the series I did not feel out of order. The relationship between Julia and Brisbane is challenging and very emotional and the other characters add to the mystery. this author narrates in a way you feel yourself inside the scene, very fascinating descriptions of locations. The mystery and romance is a very compelling and has you glue to the pages until the unexpected outcome. A very good read.

Summary: After eight idyllic months in the Mediterranean, Lady Julia Grey and her detective husband are ready to put their investigative talents to work once more. At the urging of Julia's eccentric family, they hurry to India to aid an old friend, the newly widowed Jane Cavendish. Living on the Cavendish tea plantation with the remnants of her husband's family, Jane is consumed with the impending birth of her child—and with discovering the truth about her husband's death. Was he murdered for his estate? And if he was, could Jane and her unborn child be next?

Amid the lush foothills of the Himalayas, dark deeds are buried and malicious thoughts flourish. The Brisbanes uncover secrets and scandal, illicit affairs and twisted legacies. In this remote and exotic place, exploration is perilous and discovery, deadly. The danger is palpable and, if they are not careful, Julia and Nicholas will not live to celebrate their first anniversary.

  2. What a great review. I really would like to check this book out now! I haven't heard much about it until now and knowing that it's a page turner really gets my hopes up!
    I just read a mystery/romance type book that in my opinion was a page turner. It's called Carnal Weapon and was written by Peter Hoffmann. I really enjoyed the romance in the book it made me not want to stop turning those pages. I have a new baby and need my sleep but literally could not sleep thinking about this book all day/night long so I had to share! I have to tell people about this book it was so good!
    Take care!
