Isn't this a beautiful cover? Silent on the Moor is available now to purchase



Julia Grey is back again in Deanna Raybourn’s third installment in the Lady Julia Grey mysteries titled Silent on the Moor.

Julia and her sister, Portia are traveling to Yorkshire to pay a visit to Brisbane. When Julia arrives at the manor of Grimsgrave, she is dismayed by Brisbane’s appearance. He looks like a man haunted by demons. Also Brisbane is not alone. Under his care are Lady Allenby and her two daughters. They have lost their fortune and now have nothing. Lady Allenby used to be Brisbane’s first love till Julia.

Brisbane takes a turn for the worse. To Julia’s great surprise she learns that her love has been poisoned. Now Julia is out to seek the truth. What she discovers is disdain, gypsies, revenge and a long, lost legend that could change Julia’s feelings for Brisbane forever.

I love Julia. She is full of grace and determination. She is no weak flower. She and Brisbane were meant for each other. She seems to be the only one that can turn Brisbane from a grizzly bear into a teddy bear. Brisbane at first appearances may seem cold but once you get to know him, he is a very caring and good detective. If you don’t mind the full details behind what transpired with Julia and Brisbane then you would be fine to read this book without having read the others. I say this because I myself only read the first and third book and not the second. I didn’t feel like I missed much by not reading the second book but I still want to go back and read it. Silent on the Moor makes reference to some things that happened in the first novel. I devoured this book. It was that good. I can’t wait to read the next book in this series.

Covers are so important to me when I choose a book. Sometimes, I run my fingers over the raised letters.

Again, a very well-written review!

Have a good week!
