City of Jasmine (2014)
language
English
3.7 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: I'm abandoning this one. I gave it a good try but halfway through, I've decided to move on. I wanted a lighthearted adventure, which it is, but I don't like either of the main characters. I think I've also grown weary of Deanna Raybourn's (to me) formulaic characters: headstrong ...
A Spear of Summer Grass (2013)
language
English
3.84 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: I had to read this for the OPL book club. It's about a wild-child, rich flapper who is sent to live in Africa while her most recent scandalous behavior blows over in the press. In some respects it was interesting to read about Colonial Nairobi, but that was about the only redeemi...
Whisper Of Jasmine (2014)
language
English
3.77 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: I gave this 4 stars, but that is on a scale as compares to other novellas. They don't really compare against normal novels. For a novella, this was quite good. It helped develop the characters of both "A Spear of Summer Grass" and "City of Jasmine." It also gave some important an...
Silent on the Moor (2009)
language
English
4.04 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: I love the characters. I enjoyed the growth of Lady Julia. I tolerated the drawn out relationship dance but I have grown tired of these mysterious on estates. Boring Scottish crumbling estates where there is no momentum to the story beyond wandering the moors talking to the few...
Dark Road to Darjeeling (2010)
language
English
3.93 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: 3.75. About half way through the book the interaction with Julia and Brisbane was more than I expected. For the first book post marriage I did not expect their dynamic to change but I wanted a more detailed picture of their domestic life. The pace of the mystery was painfully sl...
The Dark Enquiry (2011)
language
English
4.05 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: I didn't love the previous entry in the series, but this book restored my love for the it. The mystery was interesting and kept me guessing, the tone of the book was a bit lighter than the previous book's tone, and the characters, as always, were great. If you were disappointed w...
Twelfth Night (2014)
language
English
3.96 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: This is a novella for that moment when you don't have a lot of time to read. I love to read Julia and Brisbane stories. They are always picking and poking but they always have each others back. This is set at Christmas time. The whole family is gathered for the Twelfth Night Reve...
Night of a Thousand Stars (2014)
language
English
3.8 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: Clever quasi-followup to "City of Jasmine" (some of the characters are carried over, but you can enjoy the book without having read CoJ). Raybourn writes fun historical novels with spunky women. In this one, a young woman flees her wedding (not to be thought of in the 20s) and ...
Bonfire Night (2014)
language
English
3.85 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: Ooooh I loved this! It was such a lovely little sojourn back into the world of Julia and the lovely lovely Brisbane (sigh). Obvs this wasn't long enough, but then Deanna could write a book the size of War and Peace and I don't think I would be completely satisfied. Such a shame t...
The Lady Julia Grey Bundle (2009)
language
English
4.23 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: I normally don't go for novels that seem like they have a strong romantic component but I was intrigued by the historical context and the detective mystery aspect in the small passage I read at the bookstore. I have since purchased all of the books (5 to date I believe) and have ...
Tiempo de pasión (2009)
language
English
4.04 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: This book is a real step up from volume 2 in the series. The multiplicity of secrets and motives, and the wonderfully tangled web they weave together, makes this book intriguing from beginning to end. Lady Julia has compared Nicholas to Heathcliff more than once, and this book pl...
Silenzi e sussurri (2011)
language
English
3.93 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: Lady Julia's travels take her from the wuthering heights of Yorkshire in the last book to the Himalayas in this one, with an idyll in the Mediterranean in between. The Indian village setting is a character in itself, with its tea plantations and large houses and rising elevations...
Dark Enquiry (2011)
language
English
4.04 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: I liked this book when I read it but enjoyed it even more listening to the audiobook. Ellen Archer does an excellent job portraying all of the characters; she has a wide variety of voices for both gentlemen and ladies. I think that this book is perhaps the most romantic of the se...
Silenzi e complotti (2012)
language
English
4.04 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: I loved the development of Brisbane and Julia into married life. I was thrilled with the growing love between them and 10 pages from the end the entire series is ruined for me. I get that Julia likes the excitement of working the cases but it is completely ridiculous to me that...

review 1: I really enjoy a good Gothic tale and this book was just perfect!After the death of her grandfather leaves her at the mercy of her sister and brother-in-law, Theodora Lestrange decides to visit her school friend, Cosmina, in Transylvania instead of succumbing to her family´s pres...

review 1: I've loved mysteries, ever since starting out as a girl with Nancy Drew. I eventually moved on to Agatha Christie, Arthur Conan Doyle, and Dorothy L. Sayers. I also love to read historical romance, especially Regency and Victorian.So how could I help loving the Lady Julia Grey bo...
Mistero al castello (2010)

English
3.57 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: OOooOOooooOOoooh, TALK ABOUT SALACIOUS, GOTHIC FUN. There's a hulking, handsome count who might possibly be a strigoi (aka: a VAMPIIIIIIIIRE), macabre ceremonies in ancient family crypts, a decaying castle in Transylvania, tales of villagers becoming werewolves on a full moon, mu...
Far in the Wilds (2000)
language
English
3.66 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: 'Far in the Wilds' was a pleasant surprise. I got this as a freebie Kindle ebook on the 5th of July. It caught my eye because the setting is 1918 Kenya and Nairobi, Africa. How could I resist a big-game hunter/guide, who only kills those dangerous animals who have harmed or threa...
