But even throughout their struggles to find a common ground in their m Why is it sometimes so hard to write a review for a book you loved as opposed to one you disliked? And really, just how critical a compelling hero is in general. It was a treat, too, to have light shed on their brother Plum.
He has engaged a hermit. Invece i due sono strappati alla loro lunghissima luna di miele nel Mediterraneo per soccorrere Portia e l’amata Jane. Again, an incredibly entertaining book in this series.

I was about to add it to the “Library Donation” pile, when, for some reason, my curiosity stirred. Return to Book Page. This is such a strong series. I just, they’ve known each other years now. I thought they all became extinct after Capability Brown.

This is going to be less a review and more a gush-iew. This skill really comes through in the depiction of the exotic setting, and in catching the subtle emotional nuances between characters. That said I was still very ecstatic about the prospect of another book with the darkly intriguing Brisbane and charmingly obstinate Julia, but it was hard not to think for jus Originally posted here.
So to summarise, I love the mystery, intrigue, relationships, the introduction of old characters, the surprise of new ones, and the world of British empire it all takes place in. 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. This ARC was provided for review by the publicist.
Well, I didn’t get that this with this book at all. Ever since the death of Jane’s husband, Portia has been worried about the vagueness of Jane’s letters – worried f Having enjoyed a relaxing and calm honeymoon together for the last eight months, Lady Julia and Brisbane are unexpectedly brought back to the real world with the sudden arrival of Julia’s sister Portia and brother Plum.
It was engaging and I loved the twists in the murder mystery and the uncertainty of who the killer might be based on everyone having motive, including a close family friend. Newly married and not entirely comfortable with the prospect, Julia and Brisbane have to learn to work with and around each other. Alas, the baggage catches up with them in Egypt and suddenly we’re back in the same rut.
That kind of bothered me throughout the book. But as long as Julia and Brisbane can get up at the end of each darjeling, dust themselves off, and stroll hand-in-hand toward their next adventure, I’m happy.
I admit to shaky geography however I believe they only …more Ahh yes, from England to India, but weren’t the Brisbanes already in the eastern Mediterranean? The change in location to totally unfamiliar territory — India — evidently proved inspiring rather than stifling.
England to India journey in those times took months, but here it seems they reached in couple of weeks.
Apr 02, Jennifer rated it it was amazing Shelves: Portia has arrived in a flurry, insistent that Julia and her detective husband accompany the pair to Darjeeling, India darjeelung help Portia’s former partner Jane Cavendish. As one hopes only to help while the other tries only to protect.
This book takes them to India where a friend of julia’s sister Portia drags Julia and their brother plum to help. A grieving doctor who cannot remain sober, a free-spirited American artist married to an English clergyman and even the White Rajah, a recluse who has adopted the native dress and customs.
I love watching them argue and care. The murderer and motive were interesting and will intrigue the reader. How did it hold up to my expectations?
Deanna Raybourn’s writing is both spare and highly evocative, which is a skill many writers would kill for. Received quite a few responses, actually. Darjdeling so, apoplexy calls. I was thinking the other day that this series would not work half as beautifully if the POV alternated between Julia and Brisbane.
The “champagne of tea”
It’s weirdly compelling and readable, but it’s also no quite Still, the mystery is always secondary to me, as I am such a fan of both of these characters. And installed a hermit. Somehow either because of the setting of India or maybe it was all the new characters, Dark Road to Darjeeling just did not work as well for me as the earlier instalments in the series.
