A Fatal Waltz

In Tasha Alexander's A Fatal Waltz, the third installment in the Lady Emily historical suspense series, this would grip you in this shocking tale of two cities. When Lady Emily was invited to attend a party, she had to deal with Lord Fortescue who didn't wish to see her marry Colin Hargreaves. Though they've been engaged for a certain period of time, while trying to set a date for the wedding, Emily had to deal with and contend with Colin's former flame Kristiana.  Although not jealous, she didn't tried to let her get to her. During the party, Lord Fortescue winds up murdered as Ivy Brandon's husband is set to prison and framed for the murder.  To help clear his name, she goes to Vienna and look for clues there, while she visits her friend Cecile. In Vienna, she comes across some unsavory characters and have an enemy watching her. When she joined up with Colin, she fears for his life, when someone placed a hit on his life and one of the kaiser's. In a race against time, she returns to London and discovers who's the true culprit there with a shocking ending.

This was another fascinating and gripping good read from start to finish. I cared about Emily and Colin as a whole couple and individually, too. They really have a true romance going and will make their marriage work, when they tie the knot. I did feel a bit of sorry for Mary Fortescue and for Ivy Brandon, who both had gotten the shortened end of the stick. I loved the picturesque descriptions of London and Vienna during the winter holiday season for the locations and the settings. This would sweep you away to do a Viennese Waltz of your own and keep you hooked on reading. This has non-stop action, drama, suspense, intrigue, and sparks of romance.

Will you be daring to try the Fatal Waltz?
