Actually it should be two stars+ as there were patches when I really liked this book. Unfortunately they happened rarely.

And Only to Deceive (A Lady Emily Mystery)
by Tasha Alexander
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.99

2.0 out of 5 stars Bloody boring, 2 Nov. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The author seemed to be unsure which kind of book she was writing. It alternates between a Regency romance and very thinly a mystery. In both kinds the book is tedious and it is far too long.

I hesitated between two and three stars but...I thought I had ordered volume one, turned out it was 11 so I was at a disadvantage from the beginning. I won't give it up though but will give it another chance later on.

1.0 out of 5 stars I absolutely abhor books with satanic or other cults with disgusting rites and habits, 26 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This was a well-written book, the dialogue was fluent, but and a big BUT. I absolutely abhor books with satanic or other cults with disgusting rites and habits. And also hate books with corrupt police and other members of law. Mix the two and that's the absolute rock-bottom for me. The story had obviously started in the first volume and as obviously continued in the next one. Never again! and that¨s a pity as I liked the style.

This my favourite of all the Wesley Peterson books. Only the very last chapter spoiled it a bit.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not half as good as the previous book by A.F., 19 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The victim is obvious almost from the beginning but nothing happens until almost halfway of the book. I really liked no 1 in this series but this I found tedious.

What a disappointment! The gutsy lady of the previous book has mysteriously disappeared giving way to a mooning and sighing bunch of nerves. Why was this book written?

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Three hoorays to the person who created such a splendid tv-series out of such boring books. Gently goes the round trying to get the suspects to talk and they either give him a cold shoulder or burst to tears. Then he goes to the pub to eat. That happens in every chapter until in the last one they all reveal their secrets. End of story. I sooo much wanted to like them but...
