A ruined abbey on a beautiful estate in Derbyshire, a murdered peer, and a most unlikely romance make New York Times bestseller Tasha Alexander's new novel absolutely irresistible
Anglemore Park is the ancestral home of Lady Emily Hargreave's husband Colin. But the stately calm of country life is destroyed when their neighbor, the Marquess of Montagu, bursts through the French doors from the garden and falls down dead in front of the shocked gathering. But who has a motive for murdering the young aristocrat? The lovely cousin who was threatened by his engagement, the Oxford friend he falsely accused of cheating, the scheming vicar's daughter he shamelessly seduced or the relative no one knew existed who appears to claim the Montagu title? Who is the mysterious woman seen walking with him moments before he was brutally attacked? The trail takes readers into the gilded world of a British manor house and below stairs to the servants who know all the secrets. One family's hidden past and a forbidden passion are the clues to a puzzle only Lady Emily can solve.

I've been a big fan of the Lady Emily series since day 1, and while I waffled about getting the last book for well over a year, I ended up really enjoying it. So when I saw that this book was coming out so soon after I'd read the last one, I was really excited. I wasn't ready to leave Lady Emily's world. I will start by stating that I enjoyed the book. I read it all in one day, pretty much, even picking up dinner so I could avoid cooking and wasting time I could have spent reading the book. So I'm not sad that I spent the money. However, I am really disappointed by Behind the Shattered Glass, as I felt it had the potential to be so much better. I did not expect the killer to be who it ended up being, but the build up to discovering who it was was jarring and really inconsistent. There was too much in the this book that felt rushed and undeveloped. ****Beware, spoilers may be ahead!*****For example, Lord Flyte. We are supposed to believe that he's a kind man who a maid would easily...

The 8th in the Lady Emily series does not disappoint. This story begins in the drawing room of Anglemore Park, the home of Lady Emily and her husband, Colin Hargreaves. They, with her mother, Lady Bromley are settled in for a quiet evening, the children having been put to bed, when a formally dressed gentleman enters through one of the French doors, looks toward...
I discovered Tasha Alexander's Lady Emily Ashton mysteries quite by chance a few years ago. Now they top my must-read list. This is the seventh in the series and it does not disappoint. To set the scene without revealing any of the great plot lines, Lady Emily, daughter of an Earl, married Phillip, Viscount Ashton, primarily to escape her mother's incessant pressure to marry before she lost her looks along with her status as an attractive candidate for marriage to a wealthy young peer.
A month after their marriage, Phillip leaves for an African safari -- and never returns. Emily inherits a not inconsiderable fortune, including his fashionable town home on Berkeley Square, an exceptional library, a well-stocked wine cellar, a ready supply of quality cigars, and a discerning discrete butler of the finest quality -- Davis.
Eighteen months after Phillip's death, Lady Emily's mother begins talking out of both sides of her mouth, espousing redecoration of Phillip's...
