Booklist Reviews WHEN MAIDENS MOURN


From Booklist...

When Maidens Mourn.
Harris, C. S. (Author)

Just days after Hero Jarvis and Sebastian St. Cyr are married in 1812 in London, Hero’s close friend Gabrielle Tennyson is found murdered, and the two young cousins staying with her are missing. An antiquarian who stirred controversy over identifying the location of Camelot, Gabrielle was, like Hero, an independent and unconventional woman who eschewed the traditional female role. So while Sebastian is asked by local authorities to help investigate, Hero takes her own path in pursuit of the killer, sometimes at cross-purposes with her husband, on a course that adds to the distrust between the pair despite their mutual passion. In an atmosphere charged with deceit and danger, plus the burgeoning popular belief in the possible return of King Arthur, the pair uncovers Gabrielle’s hidden life and the family secrets that led to her death. Impeccable historical research underlies this seventh in the St. Cyr series (after Where Shadows Dance, 2011), an absorbing mystery that leaves intriguing questions—about the marriage and Hero’s unborn child, as well as Sebastian’s true parentage—to be answered in future entries.

Beth said...

Nice -- and we get to read it soon, right? It is coming out in March? I'm looking forwards to getting my paws all over this virtual ink.

Charles Gramlich said...

Good to see. Looking forward to digging into this one.

cs harris said...

Paz, thank you. I have to admit that after PW's nasty review of Shadows, I was nervous. But even PW gave it a good review--I'll be posting that next.

Beth, it's coming 6 March. And since NAL does nothing to control laydown, you may even find it earlier!

Charles, yes, it's a relief.

What does he mean - intriguing questions — about the marriage and Hero’s unborn child. What questions? Ahhh.... it's driving me crazy. Sabena

cs harris said...

Sabena, my husband said exactly the same thing when he read the review! Perhaps it's because the baby isn't born yet? A friend of my says this baby is going to have the longest gestation in history (book number 8 is set in September). But NINE....

Mom in High Heels said...

Longest gestation in history! Hilarious.
I am counting down the days until March 6th!

Barbara Butler McCoy said...

This is wonderful. Kudos and high fives and now I'm really itching for 03.06.12 ;0

cs harris said...

Mominhighheels, I have to admit, I hadn't thought of it that way at all. Not long now!

Barbara, yes, it's a relief!

cs harris said...
