Let me just say I am soooo torn about this book that I on t know if I loved it or hated it I have waited for years YEARS for this book to come out I followed this series and was just completely frustrated when it ended without a thorough conclusion Then I hear that finally it is going to hopefully have an endingI tore through this book I enjoyed reading this book But it also emotionally exhausted me Let me first say that I used to like Francesca a lot but in this book she just got on my nerves How stupid can you be oh I ll just pop over and retrieve my stolen portrait and still make it to my wedding on time Right And if I on t my fiance an extremely unpredictable man will just forgive me even though I jilted him at the alter Right So I say to Francescayou need to use that brain of yours and have some common senseThe mystery with the portrait was only so so It seemed peripheral to the love triangle between Calder Francesca Bragg I thought it was not the strongest mystery and there could have been to it This book was probably trying to tie up a lot of the loose ends and I thank Brenda Joyce for that but it seemed rush and too convenientAnd then there was Francesca and Calder For the record I ve always been a fan of Bragg and not so much of Calder I ve never been at ease with Francesca with Calder simply because I on t understand that attraction to Billy Bragg dark brooding and violent men Butthey love each other and I m glad that this storyline had a conclusion and they eloped I was tired of the back and forth between her and Calder and Bragg BUT I was emotionally torn because of Bragg I had hoped he would find love again with his wife but heidn t Then I hoped that his wife would be killed off and Francesca could be with him That Polly Prices Totally Secret Diary didn t happen So at the endit s yet another cliff hanger What is going to happen with Bragg Not to mention some of the other peripheral characters like Maggie and Evan All in all one story was fulfilled but so many weren t I hope that there is another book to wrap them ALL upmaybe books that follow the traditional romance book series vein in that they are all stand alone books that have actual endings I liked this book enough to give it four or five stars BUT I am so emotionally conflicted about the entire thing I bumped itown to three First off I m writing this review to spread the word about this Deadly Series so it covers my thoughts on all 9 books I owe my romance reading comeback to Brenda Joyce I took a break from reading romance in the early 90 s for a few years I picked up a Brenda Joyce novel in about 1995 and I ve been on reading romance frenzy since This Deadly series actually has everything that I hate in a romance novel BUT IT WORKS SO WELL in these books There is a love triangle hate misunderstanding between HH really hate and TSTL Heroine totally hate Brenda Joyce has made it work so well that I ve read these books twice The who one it in each book is actually a non event in my opinion But I really idn t read this series for the mystery The characters are what brings readers back for each book Francesca is an amateur private eye who s always getting kidnapped shot at and other The Majors Daughter dastardly stuff She usually runs off on her own and is ether saved by Rick Bragg or his half brother Calder Hart So much stuff happens through out this series that you just can t wait to read the next book In the first book you come to love police commissioner Rick Bragg but wait until his brother Calder Hart is introduced Wow handsown he is one of my FAVORITE heroes ever written He s so alpha strong Miss Shumway Waves a Wand damaged sexy hot angry etc etc I would read this series again and again just to read about Hart If you are looking for somethingifferent in historical romance I would take a look at this series One word of caution the first book is kind of frustrating and I almost The Touch didn t pick up the second book Someone is introduced at the end of the first book and it made me continue So glad Iid because now I have a series that I will cherish and reread and recommend to all of my reading friends I have read the whole serie back to back On the morning of her wedding to Calder Hart amateur sleuth Francesca Cahill is lured away to a private viewing of the one thing that can On His Majestys Service destroy her whole family a nude painting of her Heresperate uest to find the indecent portrait and preserv.
