The Bride Wore Pearls-Liz Carlyle

The Bride Wore Pearls

Liz Carlyle

Avon, Jul 31 2012, $7.99

ISBN 9780061965777


With the death of her English military spouse, mixed-blood Lady Anisha Stafford, accompanied by her two sons, leaves India for her late husband’s homeland as she has no safe place for herself or her kids in her homeland.  She hopes to fit in for the sake of her boys though she fears London will prove radically different from Calcutta.


Anisha turns to the Guardians of St. James Society for assistance.  She also is attracted to Guardian Lord Rance Welham, who hides his feelings for her as he fears what would happen to the widow’s reputation if she is seen with him.  Instead he tries to keep her and her boys safe while also struggling to prove he is not a murderer.


The latest St. James Society Victorian romantic mystery (see One Touch of Scandal and The Bride Wore Scarlet) is a wonderful tale that fans of the series will especially enjoy as the relationship between the protagonists has been changing since they first met.  Fast-paced Liz Carlyle deftly merges a rousing romance with a powerful perilous murder investigation inside of a vivid Victorian backdrop as Lord Rance and Lady Anisha team up in love.
