Von Amazon Customer am 30. Juni 2014
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Stephanie Laurens ist eine Erzählerin, die sehr gute Bücher geschrieben hat, aber auch eher mittelmäßige. The Masterful Mr. Montague gehört eher zur letzten Kategorie. Der Stil ist sicher überdurchschnittlich, der Krimi als solcher nicht unbedingt ein Thriller und für mich als nicht unbedingt geübter Krimileserin doch so gut konstruiert, dass der Täter nicht von Anfang an eindeutig identifizierbar war. Ein paar sympathische Personen mussten ihr Leben lassen, was sicher nicht jedermanns Geschmack ist (etwas randständig für eine romance).
Zur Handlung: Mit ein paar radikalen Schnitten wäre es ein gutes, auch spannendes Buch geworden. Der Titelheld und die weibliche Heldin Violet geben ein gutes Paar ab, erfreulicherweise sind beide nicht mehr ganz jung, sondern ausgereifte Persönlichkeiten.
Aber: sehr breiten Raum nehmen die Protagonisten des vorhergehenden Buches ein. Die Ehepaare Adair (Oberschicht) und Stokes (Mittelschicht) führen eine Art von Ehe, wie sie zu Beginn des 19.Jahrhunderts einfach undenkbar war, die Ehefrauen kämpfen um eine Art von Unabhängigkeit, die sicher nicht dem Denken einer damaligen Frau entsprach. Das Vokabular findet sich zu Hauf in modernen Titeln für die emanzipierte Frau.
Ein zweiter krasser Minuspunkt: Pünktlich am Abend eines jeden Tages gehen die Ehepaare miteinander ins Bett. Der dann ebenso pünktlich geschriebenen nachfolgenden Sexszene merkt man nur zu deutlich an, dass sie den Zweck hat, das offenbar gewünschte Level an Sex zu erreichen. Einfach nur noch langweilig und ohne tieferen Sinn und Zweck für die eigentliche Handlung.

Ich lese die Bücher von Stephanie Laurens einfach zu gerne. Sicherlich gab es hier und da mal welche, die nicht super waren,a ber immer noch gut. Diesmal wagt sich Stephanie in die Welt des Bankings und der "Kriminalfall" ist nunmal eher eine "Papierschlacht". Trotzdem ist das Buch spannend geschrieben und die Auflösung nicht gleich erkennbar.
Die Liebesgeschichte zwischen Heathcote und Violet ist im Vergleich zu den anderen Büchern sehr "brav", aber da auch andere Charaktere wie Penelope und Barnaby bzw. Griselda und Basil auftauchen, kommt die Leidenschaft nicht zu kurz.

Ich freue mich schon auf die weiteren Bücher der Casebook of Barnaby Adair Reihe und warte gespannt auf Loving Rose.

Mir gefällt es einfach, wie Stephanie eine eigene Welt erschaffen hat und die Figuren, die man im Laufe der Zeit lieb gewonnen hat, immer wieder in den Büchern auftauchen. Das gibt mir einfach das Gefühl, ein Stück weit in diese Welt eintauchen zu können und mir einen kleinen Urlaub vom Alltag zu gönnen.

What happened to the romance? 30. April 2014
Von Carolina Girl - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
If you are looking for a romance novel with Montague as the main male character - this is not it! This is a mystery novel, plain and simple. I was on page 360 before the H/h even kissed!
It was ok, but sort of tedious and slow moving. I now know I have not interest in the Casebook novels. I gave it 3 stars because there is nothing wrong with the writing, I just happen to like my romance with a little mystery, not the reverse.

Just like every other Laurens' book, but less interesting. 29. April 2014
Von BookGeek - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
From the moment the strange anomaly in Lady Halstead's bank account was revealed...I was bored. So, we're talking chapter 1. It just seemed a non-problem. "Oh no, I have too much money in my bank account!" I'm aware that this is probably a negative trait in myself that I would not investigate extra money in my bank account, but I couldn't help not caring. This is Stephanie Laurens and this series is a spin-off of the Cynster series! DEVIL'S BRIDE started with a gunshot and a murder. The fact that this story starts with an old rich lady having too much money seems to herald the end of my relationship with Stephanie Laurens. I've been reading her books since I was 14. I fell in love with romance, because of this author, but she's been writing the same exact romance over and over and expecting us not to notice.

The writing is as beautiful and as flowery as ever, but there is no moderation. The story, the characters and their journeys are too similar to past books and more importantly each other. It's impossible to differentiate Penelope's voice from Violet's. Everyone sounds the same, thinks the same...they are all the same.

It was hard to find entertainment in recycled conversations and characters who are bored they go in search of trouble. Literally, Barnaby and Penelope have a conversation about how marriage and parenthood changed them, then Stokes and his wife have the same conversation. After reading their book and experiencing them fall in love, I don't want to hear how bored they are 3 years later. I don't care how realistic it is. I read their HEA, they are now supposed to be happy! The characters are all bored with their lives and so I was bored with them.

I admit, to being pleased that Violet and Heathcoate were not ton aka aristocracy, but their journey didn't feel any different from Laurens' normal ton romances. There's less sexuality, I guess, but we get that with the other characters, so it doesn't feel any different.
Also, I have been reading about Montague for over ten years and his description, personality, etc does not match what I have seen of him. Sure, he works for Devil and the other Cynsters, but this book takes him from the bookish gentleman I imagined and turns him into the sort of man that would rival Devil Cynster in looks, personality and presence. That doesn't fit what we've been told. The author rewrote him to make him fit a more cliche idea of masculinity or heroism.

At the end of the day, this book is exactly what Stephanie Laurens fans can expect. Which is the reason I disliked it, but the reason that others will love it.

OK...Wished There Was More 1. Mai 2014
Von ARomReader - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I'm a great fan of all of the Stephanie Laurens books- especially the Cynster novels. I was pleased to see the Barnaby Adair spin off since Barnaby's and Penelope's story is one of my favorites in the series. That being said, their story is complete. According to the book's description, this new novel is suppose to focus on the new romance between Montague and Violet. Yet there are very few instances when they are alone more or less interact romantically. I realize it's a mystery. But it's romance too. There are many long drawn out love scenes between Barnaby and Penelope. In fact there are too many. At the end of every day, the reader gets another over blown account of them having sex which uses every flowery sweet description of the act except any words actually relating to sex because that would debase their love and commitment. I get it. Once is okay. Twice is pushing it, especially if you re-use the same descriptions. But Laurens wastes many pages that could have been dedicated to the new romance. For example, you have to wait over 3/4 of the book before Montague and Violet even kiss for the 1st time. We wait all that time for the 1st romantic encounter between them and it's up-staged with gratuitous love scene # 4? (lost count by this time) between Barnaby and Penelope. Finally Laurens remembers that you can't have a romance without spending some time together. So Montague's and Violet's courtship gets crammed into the last few pages of the book. Don't get me wrong. I really like the Barnaby and Penelope characters. But I already know they love each other. Their passion for each other was apparent in their story and the last Barnaby novel. But this was suppose to be Montague's and Violet's tale. I think they got cheated.

Caveat emptor: three couples to solve a mystery in one romance novel is two too many 30. April 2014
Von Penny Black - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I never thought there would come a time when I would be disappointed with a Stephanie Laurens romance. It pains me to say this - for I've been her loyal fan for years and years - the best thing about it was the cover.

Trouble with this book was that it tried to be too many things all at once: a murder mystery, which began as a financial conundrum, and three separate love stories in different stages of development. Two couples from Where the Heart Leads (Casebook of Barnaby Adair), which, in my opinion, was a far superior book, stole the spotlight from the headliner couple, shortchanging Montague and his Violet. I felt that, after all the years of working for the Cynsters and Bastion Club members, Montague deserved to play a bigger role in the book that was supposed to tell his story.

In the past, I didn't mind when Ms. Laurens wrote the hero to fit an alpha-male mold, but telling three of these men apart in this novel drove me to distraction, and repetitive conversations among characters about the victim's family and similar relationship dynamics within the Adair and Stokes households didn't help matters either. And now that Barnaby Adair's crime solving gang have become six, I'm a bit concerned for Loving Rose: The Redemption of Malcolm Sinclair (Casebook of Barnaby Adair). There would be even less room to devote to Malcolm's love story and the ample baggage he's accumulated in previous books.

Romance takes a back seat to mystery 30. April 2014
Von ELIZABETH - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Lady Halstead, a wealthy elderly widow, decides it is time to makes sure her affairs are in order and instructs her companion Violet to summon Mr. Runcorn, her man of business, to attend her. During their meeting, they discover that her bank account has too much cash in it. Since Mr. Runcorn has only recently taken over his father's business, Lady Halstead decides to hire the most trusted and experienced man of business in the country to act as a consultant and help Mr. Runcorn with his investigation. Mr. Montague, who acts as man of businesses for many of the upper class, has discovered that while he has achieved his financial and business goals, he has no personal life. When he meets Violet he is intrigued enough to meet with Lady Halstead and agree to look over her finances with Mr. Runcorn. Within days of that first meeting, Lady Halstead is murdered, Violet sends to Mr. Montague for help and he calls in Inspector Stokes and Barnaby Adair to make sure that the murder is not declared a natural death. The case takes twists and turns as additional murders follow.
I enjoyed seeing the Adairs and Stokes as new parents working on their marriages, trying to fit their new responsibilities in with their determination to find the murderer and learning to compromise between their families' needs and the investigation. Heathcote Montague has been brilliant and supportive in prior novels but he has always stayed in his role as financial advisor. In this book, he wants Violet to see him as a man, so we get to see some of his character and his dreams.
The investigation is very much in the fore front in this novel. Violet and Heathcote are direct, honest and mature individuals who recognize their attraction to each other so there is no conflict in their relationship. Their romance is slow and sweet and the heat is turned down in this book compared to many of Ms. Laurens previous books. I enjoyed both the focus on the mystery and the three romances.
