Both romances are sensual and poignant and the murder plots are staged intricately and intelligently - albeit many clues may be too much of a coincidence. Nonetheless, Michele Jaffe has proven her a talent to watch with her crafted crime plots full of shenanigans and delicious red herrings. In the tradition of Gaelen Foley, her narration is clear and focused - and it is double happiness when readers are treated to this hefty but enjoyable read.
SECRET ADMIRER. Lady Tuesday Arlington paints her nightmares as her only way of coping with Death visiting her every night. When someone kills her spouse in an identical manner to a portrait done by Tuesday, Queen Elizabeth's Special Investigator Lawrence Pickering sees the paintings and believes Tuesday killed her husband. As he digs deeper into her life, he falls in love with her. In spite of the proof provided by the paintings, his heart insists she is innocent, but how will he prove so. This is an exciting historical romance and psychological suspense mystery starring a wonderful duo.
This combo book is the bargain of the year as the readers obtain two superbly written Elizabethan romantic mysteries with indications of the supernatural in each one. Either novel selling solo would be worth the price as Michele Jaffe provides triumphant stories that are winners for the audience.
The love scenes are very sensual amidst the backdrop of the wealthy splendor of sixteenth century English nobility. And the mystery of the bodies left behind by the vampire adds a unique twist to the traditional historical romance.
On the flip side of this book is another sixteenth century mystery in which Lady Tuesday Arlington is considered the prime suspect in her husband's murder. Lawrence Pickering, earl of Arden, and England's primary investigator of smuggling begins to follow Tuesday's every move, as she has painted the murder scene where her husband was found. When Tuesday continues to paint more murder scenes, Lawrence starts to become involved with her romantically, though he is bemused by her knowledge of the crime scenes. Is the real murderer stalking Tuesday, possibly using her paintings to stage the backdrop for murder?
Descriptively intimate love scenes are frequent and varied throughout this read. The romantic tension is palpable and reminiscent of Judith McNaught. Add in the mysterious murderer/secret admirer, and you have a true page-turner.
