Sintesi dell'editore

Lady Frances Ffolkes finds more trouble than expected in this second cozy mystery from R. J. Koreto.

Lady Frances Ffolkes is incensed when she finds out that her dear friends Gwendolyn and Thomasina have been subject to vicious threats. Promising to uncover their attacker, she travels with them to Kestrel's Eyrie, the fabled estate belonging to Gwen's family. But soon Frances faces an even greater problem, when Gwen's father, a powerful diplomat, is stabbed to death with his prized ruby dagger.

Frances, with her loyal maid June Mallow at her side, jumps right into interrogating the estate's numbered guests: a charming Turkish diplomat with a habit of sneaking off into the night, a brash American heiress with lofty dreams of becoming mistress of the Eyrie, two gossiping widows with their own scandalous secrets, and Gwen's own aunt tasked with keeping the affairs of the estate in order among the chaos of the investigation. But as the case unfolds, Frances' righteous conviction might just be the very thing that leads danger - and even more death - to her own doorstep.

Old sins do indeed cast long shadows in Death Among Rubies, a delightful closed-room mystery in the vein of Agatha Christie and the second in R. J. Koreto's effortlessly charming historical series.

Loved

I loved this book and the first one in the series. I really wish that the third one, Death at the Emerald, was available in an audible version.

I don't know.

Book might have been good. The sing song narrator wasn't. Always ends in a question?????

Mostly okay novels that may define meh

I have listened to the first two in the series and they are… Not terrible, occasionally entertaining, but there’s nothing extraordinary about them. They draw on some fairly predictable character types, and are pretty well written, with the occasional misused word here and there, so I don’t know why I don’t really love them. I think it may have something to do with a sort of…lack of humor? Usually something as fairly predictable as these are excels because of its characterization, and while the characters here are just fine, there’s nothing that makes you really wish you knew them. I’m glad these first two novels were a free download, and I may or may not look for the next one in the series. Whatever.

Mystery in the Country.

What a fun mystery that kept me on my toes. I was unsure of who did it until the very end. When ladies have a place in life but not all conform to it that is when you have a great female Holmes! Enjoy

Social Agenda & Rhetoric

Loved Death on the Sapphire; great writer; great narrator… however, in this book, I was immediately turned off by the social politics introduced right away in the first chapter. I could not finish the book. Writers should just write a good book and keep social agenda and rhetoric out.

Great Story and Great Narration

Intriguing story line and very well written, plus Justine Eyre has become my favorite narrator.

Lady Insufferable

This is an average period mystery, typical of the genre. Enjoyable enough if you like spending time with a narcissistic main character. I don't think having a crusading spirit (re suffrage, women's rights) is synonymous with being smug and self-satisfied. The narrator does a good job. I think the style she uses is what my British friends call "posh". Perfect for this snooty character. The groom-to-be must be a saint.

One of these was enough for me.

Good listen

I enjoyed these two books and hope for a third. Most people like the narrator, but something about her speech cadence grates on me. Sorry Justine.

Such a Satisfying Romance

The feminism of this turn of the twentieth century mystery romance is delightful, and the web of alliances and tensions delicious. A truly enjoyable listen!
