My least favorite of the series so far. Too long, and most of the story consists of Julia and Brisbane working behind each other's back, keeping secrets and competing to solve the crime - if there is a crime - and this whole competitive couple trope annoys me.

Julia's family accost her and Brisbane at the end of their honeymoon and convince them to go to India to help her sister Portia's ex, Jane, recover after her husband's death and prepare her for impending motherhood. But Jane suspects her husband was murdered and that his family may not wish her and the new child good health. Entailment laws: possibly the single greatest boon to historical mystery writers since adultery.

Once again, characters from previous novels make an appearance; it seems no matter where Julia goes, her world remains small. New characters are introduced and more of Brisbane's less scandalous secrets are revealed. None of this was necessary to the central plot of this book, but readers may enjoy the karmic justice that is doled out. As for the introduction of Black Jack, I don't know why the author bothered or what she wanted me to take away from it.

Given all this, I still enjoyed the story and I still lost myself in the characters and the setting. The mystery was twisty and the conclusion itself, somewhat twisted. It's not a neat and tidy ending that will leave all readers content, but it will probably leave more than a few surprised; it sure surprised me. At the end, I was as relieved to be leaving India behind as the characters, and I'm looking forward to being back in London with them for the final full-length book/mystery. ( )

Synopsis: Jane contacts Portia telling her that she's near to having a baby and she feels that her life is in danger. Off go Portia and Plum to India, collecting Brisbane and Julia from their honeymoon and dropping them into a murder mystery - or is it? Brisbane takes up tiger hunting - but only the one that is killing villagers; he also adopts disguises to collect information about people in the region. Julia meets a family that includes a lady photographer, her preacher husband, her sulking teen aged daughter, and her very bright son. She also meets the 'White Rajah' who seems to want to help her investigation.
Review: This is a disturbing book, partially because of the true villain of the piece and the manner in which the preacher's family interact with each other. Although Julia is still in the role of chattel, she seems to be moving toward emancipation. ( )

This was not as good as the previous Lady Julia Grey books. The story took way too long to develop and she was quite redundant in getting there so you could almost skip pages and not miss anything. I'll give the next one a chance but if that one is not well written either than I'll assume both author and publisher are spending more time marketing this as bad romance instead of mystery writing.

Dark Road to Darjeeling
4 Stars

Lady Julia and her new husband, Nicholas Brisbane, travel to a remote provence of India at the request of her sister Portia who is concerned about her former lover. It seems that Jane Cavendish’s husband has died under mysterious circumstances and she is afraid for her life and that of her unborn child. So begins the Brisbane’s quest to uncover the truth, but can their newfound happiness withstand the pressure?

Although the lush and exotic setting is immersive, the mystery leaves much to be desired. To begin with, the pacing is even slower than that of the previous installments and the question of whether there has even been a murder remains open for much of the book. In addition, most of the twists and turns of the storyline are obvious and there are few clues to the eventual explanation of events. Moreover, the resolution is anti-climactic with very little tension and suspense.

Nevertheless, the progression of Nicholas and Julia’s relationship manages to compensate for the mediocre mystery. Unlike numerous reviewers who view the ups and downs of their marriage in a negative light, for me it is only natural that they should be testing the boundaries with one another. Considering Julia’s fervent desire to be an equal partner and her husband’s equally determined need to keep her safe, it is not at all surprising that they should be at loggerheads.

In sum, not one of the better books in the series but an entertaining read nonetheless and I’m eager to read the final book to see whether Nicholas and Julia will finally find a balance between their personal and professional needs.

I have done a thousand dreadful things
As willingly as one would kill a fly,
And nothing grieves me heartily indeed
But that I cannot do ten thousand more.
