A Crimson Warning by Tasha Alexander
On the library stacks: Adult fiction
Series: Lady Emily #6
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Lady Emily Hargreaves lives in Mayfair with her dashing husband Colin. While Emily continues her eccentric pursuits in studying classical languages and now promoting the women's suffrage movement, Colin serves quietly as a secret agent to the Crown.
As the season begins, red paint is found on some of the doorsteps of the 'ton' elite, and soon thereafter a scandalous secret is revealed about the inhabitants. Lives are being lost as part of the uproar and together Colin and Emily must solve the mystery behind the red paint before more lives are ruined.
After just feeling ho-hum about last two books in this series, I
almost gave up. But I am SO very glad I read this one. I felt like so
many of the characters got a new lease on life and I'm excited about
this series once again. I love how the mystery included so many of the Hargreaves' friends and neighbors and I enjoyed the political aspects to this book also. Thankfully I won't have to wait long for the next installment.
