This is a review of an ARC. There was a mystery to solve, and Julia continuously met new characters who would give her another small clue to the puzzle.
Well it just goes to show you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover. Deanna Raybourn is pitch-perfect on just about everything else too. Portia, Julia’s sister, persuades the newly-weds to travel to India and solve a possible murder on an improbably idyllic tea plantation in the Himalayan foothills. I loved this setting – a tea plantation in India during the British Colonial era.
At the end I still felt like things were at a stalemate between the two so I am looking forward to the next book to see if things resolve or improve. And I do mean that smile never left my face.
As the fourth installment in what has to be one of my favorite series out there mystery or notDark Road to Darjeeling is kculto unique animal. Their disagreements have never been easily darjreling but that just makes for a more satisfying resolution in my opinion.
This book takes place soon after Lady Julia’s marriage to Brisbane, so they’re working out this mystery, as well as new issues in their relationship. Yes, they are honeymooners – utterly in love – but they are also very much strong individuals. See my full review here The two March siblings are come to convince Julia and Brisbane to follow them to Darjeeling, where Portia’s former partner Jane is in much distress. This reservation was compounded by the fact that this was a transitional book for these two.
This early passage is a classic March exchange between the three of them: Darjeelign publishers send me food books that aren’t cookbooks, even those most everybody knows I almost never review them.
Not necessarily in a bad way. Anxiously awaiting The Dark Enquiry later this year! Open Preview See a Problem?
The “champagne of tea”
Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. I just love this series. Married to her college sweetheart and the mother of one, Raybourn makes her home in Virginia. While I knew the series wouldn’t be the same since the big deal in the previous book, ooculto was still an enjoyable book. She’s brilliantly drawn and endlessly endearing, even when she’s being a complete PITA.

I feel like this was fine? The writing, the craftsmanship, the characters, and the setting all come together seamlessly in a Deanna Raybourn novel.
For now, though, the review copy of Darjeeling will see me through a couple of weekday lunches – accompanied by a pot of cheap Earl Grey. Mysterious neighbors and strangely familiar ones people the small Valley of Eden which Julia and her companions travel to, along with the family of Jane’s deceased husband, who each have their own reasons for possibly wanting her and her offspring out of the darjeelign for good.
The ending was one of the most shocking and heart-breaking things I’ve read in awhile: But perhaps if I had read the other books darieeling the series and knew how they met, etc, I would have liked his character.
Deanna Raybourn’s writing is both spare and highly evocative, which is a skill many writers would kill for. Nov 18, Felicia rated it really liked it Shelves: Was he murdered for his estate? This is such a strong series.

It’s not hideously cheesy like the cover for Silent on the Moor Sep 18, Carolyn Crane rated it it was amazing Shelves: This is going to be less a review and more a gush-iew. Brisbane struggles with loving that he is married to a strong and opinionated woman who is gutsy and bold, but he also wants to keep her safe.
But go simply and quickly to your nearest bookstore and purchase Silent in the Grave. And this means that they must learn to work with each other. Dark Road to Darjeeling is one of the best written Lady Julia books yet. I liked the change of scenery in this book. And the unexpected surprises that popped up in the second half of this story.
In this remote and exotic place, exploration is perilous and discovery, deadly. Finale che mi ha colto parecchio alla sprovvista e non sono ancora sicura che mi siano piaciute le implicazioni. Want to Read Currently Reading Read. It was in no way an agonizing or excruciating ending, rather it managed to leave me both perfectly happy and aching for more adventures with the indomitable Julia and the elusive Brisbane.
Dark Road to Darjeeling opened auspiciously with a brief description of Lady Julia Grey and Nicholas Brisbane enjoying their honeymoon romping across Europe, free of the fami With each consecutive volume, Ms Raybourn’s Lady Julia Grey series seemed to be slipping into uninspired, repetitive mediocrity—such a pity after the literary bravura of Silent in the Grave. I had listened to their quarrels since they had run me to ground in Egypt, and I was heartily sick of them both.
I am still trying to figure out how I feel about what happened there. The murderer and motive were interesting and will intrigue the reader.
