Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Poisoned Season (Lady Emily Mysteries Book 2) (Kindle Edition)
I've read her later ones and enjoyed them more. I'm ploughing through this one which is far too long. The story doesn't justify the endless repetitions of the thief sending the heroine missives in Greek and proving tediously elusive.
I am also increasingly infuriated by the Americanisms that would be out of place in a contemporary English novel, let alone one purporting to be set in Victorian high society. People simply wouldn't have talked about "figuring thing out", waiting until "the Fall", asking if they could "visit with" each other and worst of all calling an attendant in the British Museum a "docent"!
I'll probably finish it but only because I've got this far and want to know what happened but I am losing the will to live...

Just the sort of thing that annoys me! Thanks for the review. I won't be buying it.
