From Publishers Weekly In Alexander's lackluster fourth Lady Emily historical (after A Fatal Waltz), Emily and her new husband, British intelligence agent Colin Hargreaves, are honeymooning in Constantinople when a half-English harem girl is murdered. After Colin is charged with the investigation, the British crown reluctantly allows Emily to handle questioning within the harem. Emily follows the clues much farther afield, exploring the tangled histories of the victim's diplomat father from whom she was abducted many years before, her troubled archeologist brother and sultans both current and deposed. The author deftly handles the exotic setting and a subplot in which Emily worries she may be pregnant, but a lack of tension and a number of implausibilities, starting with the ease with which a Western woman can play detective in despotic, late 19th-century Constantinople, make this a relatively weak entry. Hopefully, Emily will recover her usual sparkle once the newlyweds return to more familiar ground. Author tour.(Sept.) Copyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc.

Review "...simply pure pleasure...a great main character, an indelible setting, and a terrific mystery all at once...It's a perfect mixture for a happy evening's read."  --Aunt Agatha's Bookshop "Tightly woven plots, flowing prose and three-dimensional characters make Tears of Pearl a must-read. Readers won't be able to stop themselves from racing through the pages as they search alongside Lady Emily for the killer" --examiner.com "Fans of the series can expect more of what they liked in previous books; fans of smart Victorian mystery heroines (with a little romance thrown in) should check out this series." --The Free Lance-Star "A window into a world long-gone, Tears of Pearl delivers both interesting history and fast-action suspense--a winning combination for a great mystery read!" --Borders Books, Crime Scene "Because this is the fourth book in Alexander's Victorian series characters have been well established, but their relationships and inner conflicts continue to develop in interesting ways..."--Library Journal “Infused with wit and charm, with just the right amounts of danger, romance, and detection blended in.”—The Denver Post “[Tears of Pearl] will please readers of Anne Perry, Laurie R. King, and Deanna Raybourn seeking a new fan-favorite author.”—Library Journal “The forth book of Alexander’s Victorian-era series has a lush setting and beautiful details. . . . The romance and lovely writing sweep the readers along. Emily is a most independent woman for her time. Her voice and the accurate historical details will keep the reader enthralled.”—Romantic Times (4 ½ stars) “The author deftly handles the exotic setting and a subplot in which Emily worries she may be pregnant.”—Publishers Weekly

Can you increase your height by stretching?

Its such as you read my mind! You appear to grasp a lot about this,
like you wrote the e book in it or something. I feel that you simply can do with a few p.c.
to power the message home a little bit, but instead of that, this is excellent
blog. An excellent read. I'll definitely be back.
