I really love this series, love the characters, love that it's suspenseful and romantic and blah blah w/out anything graphic in it. This is the third book in the series, and in the beginning I was a bit worried that Raybourn would not be able to carry the excitement of the first two books on. The book is set in an isolated area of Yorkshire, and maybe that feeling began to permeate my feelings toward the book as well. One thing that kept me from putting five stars is that Brisband and Julia are not often together in the book, and let's face it, the book sparkles the best with chemistry,tension,and good writing when they are together. Reading the book, I also worried that Brisbane and Julia's relationship would be just continued on and on as nothing but a tease with no moving forward. The book gets going in every direction, thankfully, and by the end, I felt my patience was rewarded. Brisbane's often bizarre reactions to all things Julia begin to be explained, and progress is made in both the solving of the mystery as well as their relationship. The book ties up loose ends, with enough fantasy to make you happy, but enough reality to not get too carried away. Others may differ w/ my assessment of the ending, but I liked it, and it made me happy. Now my only problem is waiting a whole year for the next installment... The one thing I HATED HATED HATED about this book? The horrific cover!!! Truly horrible. Like some awful bodice-ripper romance. I frankly felt like covering the front of it w/ a magazine so no one thought I was reading some mind-numbing Victorian sex book. Ugh. Someone please change the covers back to the original beautiful artwork. And what's with the dress she wears on the cover? It's not even historically accurate...it's like a 1981 gunne sax prom dress. The publishers should be embarrased over the change. I know, a whole paragraph devoted to it...that should tell you how awful it is. My advice? All of us who complained about the cover need to email the publisher MIRA. Maybe that will make a difference.

I'm rating this based on the short story, 10:30 on a Summer Night. Duras makes excellent use of setting to describe the internal dynamics of the protagonist.
