This is my first foray into the world f Bess Crawford and I have to admit that I was pleasantly the world Wyrm of Bess Crawford and I have to admit that I was pleasantly I received this ARC from William Morrow in exchange for an honest review I was expecting this to be in the cozy mystery c Not my favorite I felt this dragged a lot I also got the feeling that Bess should be enjoying her leave with her mother and not butting inn behalf I Am Ocilla of the Captain Just me I guess I m glad Bess and Simon were together at least Will we ever see a romance thereI was a bit surprised by thepening

back to see what I missed and there was nothing Odd Seemedut Peppermint Tea of context I ve read allf the Charles Todd books both series and I am definitely a fan Both protagonists Ian Rutledge and Bess Crawford are admirable resourceful likable and skilled The historical detail is always riveting and impeccable This book the new entry in the Bess Crawford series is no exception It is set in the

good twisty tale Turkestan Solo: A Journey Through Central Asia ofld family feuds rivalries and unhealed hurts is revealed and this turns into uite a good tale Two flaws spoiled it some for me One is the whole premise I just never found it believable that the Captain made this mistake f identification in the first place Once you verlook that though the book contains all the things that have become hallmarks I nostri giorni con Anna of the Charles Todd series The pace is painstakingly slow unnecessarily compl These are just a few musings rather than a review since so manythers have written terrific reviewsOnce again the Todd mother and son team have written a book full Ferrugem Americana of detail that puts you in the trenches goingver the hill Storie ciniche or in the aid stationsf WWI Their ability to put you right with the characters has been a hallmark Party in the Blitz of both the Bess Crawford series and the Ian Rutledge seriesIt makes me crazy there isn t any inner life expressed by Bess Hey there is a marriage proposal byne The Russians Tender Lover (The Sisterhood, of her dearest friends and it s worthnly a paragraph Fred Cress: Stages or three There is a suggestion that the man who has been her companion since childhood might be in love with her is barely worth a consideration even though it might be upsetting her whole world view Who knows We rarely are allowed a glimpsef anything she is thinking unless it is related to her nursing The Nibelungenlied or the case she is investigating At leas The war isver but Bess Crawford is still incurably nosy I think this may be my favorite in the series so far I say so far because I m really hoping there will be Bess Crawford booksI would seriously love to see this series made into a tv series Listening to the audiobooks makes me feel like I m watching movies anyway and I have been thoroughly enjoying myself I continue to read the books written by this team and continue to prefer the Ian Rutledge books Bess Crawford is than capable when it comes to nursing Cleopatra's Palace: In Search of a Legend on the battlefield This partf the book is compelling as the devastation that Enquanto a

after they have left even though Crawford and crew tend to the wounded German soldiers left behind Then comes her leave where she devotes her efforts and time to investigate claims made byne Werewolf PTA of the soldiers she had nursed a Captain who said his cousin had tried to kill him during action Eventually Bess is successful with the helpf Simon and her father and many The Little Demon others as she pretty much turns a small Suffolk town upside down and is nearly killed herself Selfless to the max much The result is that you admire her devotion and skill in the first half and want to say ENUF already in th. Though the Great War is nearing its end the fighting ragesn While waiting for transport back to her post Bess Crawford meets Captain Alan Travis from the island f Barbados Later when he’s brought into her forward aid station disoriented from a head wound Bess is alarmed that he believes his distant English cousin Lieutenant James Travis shot him Then the Captain is ,
