Set in the lush countryside of Normandy, France, this new novel of suspense featuring Lady Emily Hargreaves is filled with intrigue, romance, mysterious deaths, and madness.

Returning from her honeymoon with Colin Hargreaves and a near brush with death in Constantinople, Lady Emily convalesces at her mother-in-law's beautiful estate in Normandy. But the calm she so desperately seeks is shattered when, out riding a horse, she comes upon the body of a young woman who has been brutally murdered. The girl's wounds are identical to those inflicted on the victims of Jack the Ripper, who has wreaked havoc across the channel in London. Emily feels a connection to the young woman and is determined to bring the killer to justice.

Pursuing a trail of clues and victims to the beautiful medieval city of Rouen and a crumbling chateau in the country, Emily begins to worry about her own sanity: she hears the cries of a little girl she cannot find and discovers blue ribbons left in the child's wake. As Emily is forced to match wits with a brilliant and manipulative killer, only her courage, keen instincts and formidable will to win can help her escape becoming his next victim.

This series is SUCH a mixed bag for me. I enjoyed this one more than the previous installment, and have found all the books so far to be reasonably enjoyable, but still lacking a certain indefinable quality to make them books that I love. Having said that, there were things I liked about this: the aftermath from Emily's miscarriage felt realistic to me, and the constant negotiations between Emily and Colin about how their marriage is going to work, what freedoms Emily will have, how Colin reconciles himself to the sort of woman he married, etc. I thought were really interesting and well-handled. My main request would be that the next book NOT involve Emily shedding tears in almost every chapter. Also, more Sebastian Capet, please!

Probably the best book of the series I have read so far. The plot is darker and more captivating as are the characters.
