Death in the Floating City

Death in the Floating City

The Huffington Post calls "Tears of Pearl" author Tasha Alexander "one to watch--and read" and her new Lady Emily mystery set in Venice proves it.

Years ago, Emily's childhood nemesis, Emma Callum, scandalized polite society when she eloped to Venice with an Italian count. But now her father-in-law lies murdered, and her husband has vanished. There's no one Emma can turn to for help but Emily, who leaves at once with her husband, the dashing Colin Hargreaves, for Venice. There, her investigations take her from opulent palazzi to slums, libraries, and bordellos. Emily soon realizes that to solve the present day crime, she must first unravel a centuries old puzzle. But the past does not give up its secrets easily, especially when these revelations might threaten the interests of some very powerful people.

    This was a quiet little read and a quick one. I would give it 3.5 stars if halves were allowed. I liked the story. It had suspense, mystery and the clues were revealed in a timely manner. I also liked...

    Entertaining but not superb in the writing department. I didn't guess the ending on this one, possibly because I skimmed a bit more than I usually do/should have. It all worked out in the end and I ha...
