    • Well I have a HUGE soft spot for this series. The last book was a TAD off for me, but very excited that this one took it back to awesomeville. In fact, it might be my favorite since the first two! I am absolutely in love with Lady Julia and her point of view. The writing is so impeccable, it really sets the Victorian tone, but at the same time we enjoy the POV of a modern, liberated woman. Most people try to shove modern sensibilities into history and make it WHOLLY unbelievable, but with these [...]


    • 4'5 Estrellas, pero como me ha dejado muy satisfecha, y me ha recordado a los primeros libros de la serie, me siento generosa y le doy las 5.En ésta entrega Julia y Brisbane han vuelto a Londres, a una cómoda rutina en la que han conseguido una casa para su nueva vida, mientras que mantienen la casa de soltero de Brisbane como oficina y despacho para los nuevos casos de Brisbane. Una vez en casa, y acomodándose a su nueva vida tras una larga luna de miel ¿Qué más podría pasarles? Un nuevo [...]


    • If you haven't read the Lady Julia Grey series, then I must ask youWHY NOT??? Though I shouldn't scold you. I only picked up the first book this past February. But I fell in love while reading Silent in the Grave, and I went out and got all of the other books in the series and read them back-to-back--they're that good!I won't delve too much into the plot because I don't want to let any spoilers slip, but I will tell you why I thought this book was another fantastic addition to a fantastic series [...]


    • 3.5/5Amateur lady sleuth + professional dude sleuth. Victorian society, murder & romance. I read all five of them, so obviously it's a pretty good series. Even if I wanted to knock the protagonists' heads together sometimes.


    • The Dark Enquiry4 StarsMarriage to a private enquiry agent has become a frustrating enterprise for Lady Julia as her husband still strives to protect her from his professional life just as she longs to become a full partner in his endeavors. Julia gets her wish after following Brisbane to a clandestine meeting and witnessing what appears to be the murder of a psychic medium. As Julia and Brisbane investigate the strange death, they must learn to work together or lose everything, for the foe they [...]


    • Deanna Raybourn, Lady Julia, and her "yummy" husband, Brisbane, just keep getting better. I loved this addition to the series. Raybourn is an expert at creating setting and the way that she reveals her characters to the reader just leaves us wanting to know more (especially about the wonderful, Nicholas Brisbane). The dialogue is witty without being absurd, and the sparks fly between the two main characters. I read these stories for the characters, but the mysteries are nicely plotted and have a [...]


    • The Dark Enquiry is the fifth book in the Lady Julia Grey series. Brisbane and Lady Julia have returned to London, and Brisbane resumes his private enquiry business. Lady Julia would desperately like to be an equal partner in his business, and she feels she has much to offer in the way of detective skills; Brisbane, on the other hand, views her as a complication, an irresistible but exasperating complication. In trying to prove herself a worthy partner, Lady Julia unexpectedly discovers that her [...]


    • This was fun, for the most part. The part that started to drag was Julia getting lectured and chastened by both her husband and father. I know it's appropriate to the time period, but still. Yes, she's reckless. No, she never listens to any advice. But why should marrying Brisbane have changed any of that? Isn't it time to come to terms with this and find a suitable compromise? I believe it's driven the plots as far as it can.Thankfully, the last part of the book moved beyond this tired conflict [...]


    • I was really disappointed by this installment of the Lady Julia series. I am not easily offended and I appreciate sick humor but there were a few things that I had difficulty with and was surprised that Deanna Raybourn included in this story.I didn't care for the view of Julia as somewhat flakey and I hate to say it but this story reminded me of Tahsa Alexander's Lady Emily books.I have always been a huge fan of Deanna Raybourn and I feel like I am being disloyal by posting this unfavorable revi [...]


    • Tiempos de claroscuroDe nuevo en Londres y con el toque cómico de encajar a todos los sirventes de los dos en el mismo hogar, y con Brisbane por fin aceptando, con la boca pequeña, a Julia como a una social igual. Una investigación que parece poca cosa se convierte en algo muy complicado, como es habitual en esta serie. La autora sigue manteniendo su elegante prosa y sus elaborados casos como centro de la historia sin perder su brillante sentido del hunor, y la endulza con la historia de Juli [...]


    • Oh, how I love this series. I'm sure you all know very well just how much I love this series. I look forward to the new installment in Lady Julia's and Mr. Nicholas Brisbane's adventures all the year long. And by the time I get my hands on the latest book, I feel justified engaging in a little happy dancing as I have exhibited uncommon patience going so long without their inimitable company. And that's essentially what I did when I saw THE DARK ENQUIRY pop up on NetGalley. They came through for [...]


    • SPOILER WARNING: I hate to do this but it’s become impossible to talk about this series without mentioning a major spoiler from DARK ROAD TO DARJEELING. If you have any interest in reading this series please go pick up SILENT IN THE GRAVE and the two “Silents” which precede it first. I promise you you won’t be disappointed. ;)Freshly arrived from a murder investigation in India, Lady Julia is back in a routine at the Brisbane residence in London. Routine meaning her new routine – getti [...]


    • The Dark Enquiry by Deanna Raybourn is the fifth book in the truly spectacular Lady Julia series. Y'all, I can't even explain to you how much I love these books. Julia and Brisbane are definitely among my most beloved characters of all time. Both Gothic and mystical flairs give this series an atmosphere unlike any other. If you haven't checked these books out yet, what are you waiting for?Like I've mentioned in past reviews, the first book of the series begins like so:"To say that I met Nicholas [...]


    • I was delighted to get the galley for The Dark Enquiry and meet Deanna Raybourn at the same time as I have been a fan of the series since the first book, Silent in the Grave. Silent in the Grave has one of the best "grabber" openings ever---"To say that I met Nicholas Brisbane over my husband's dead body is not entirely accurate. Edward, it should be noted, was still twitching upon the floor". If that doesn't catch your attention, nothing will! One of the thing I enjoy most about the series is t [...]


    • Dernier tome format roman des aventures de Lady Julia et Nicholas BrisbaneUn tome où l'on en apprends plus sur le passé de Brisbane, sur certains des aspects de son travail.Un tome qui met aussi en avant les relations (et les conflits) à l'intérieur de la famille March.Un tome qui se faufile dans une histoire d'espionnage, lorgnant à la fois sur certaines des aventures de Sherlock Holmes, mais aussi sur le couple crée par Agatha Christie de Tuppence et Tommy Beredford (j'ai envie de les re [...]


    • I do like this series of books, but the heroine is starting to get a little bit stagnant in her immaturity. I also did not like (view spoiler)[ that her bit of heroism at the end of the book results in a miscarriage, making her unable to have children. This happened to the heroine in Tasha Alexander's series as well. I can understand that motherhood might be difficult for a crime-fighting Victorian womanbut these are upper-class women who could conceivably leave their children with the nurse all [...]


    • I hate not finishing a series. But this series which showed so much promise has gone steadily downhill. In the first 7 pages of this book the heroine has already said and done 6 ridiculous things. She has gone from a competent, intelligent woman at the beginning of book one to nothing but a figure of ridicule. She stumbles around ruining all her detective husband's careful plans. She is always wrong about who is innocent and who is guilty. And now she has blown up portions of his house 4 times. [...]


    • I loved the development of Brisbane and Julia into married life. I was thrilled with the growing love between them and 10 pages from the end the entire series is ruined for me. I get that Julia likes the excitement of working the cases but it is completely ridiculous to me that she doesn't understand the danger in what she is doing. It amounts to her dismissing what Brisbane does as trivial and so simple even a sheltered lady in waiting can do it. But what really upset me about the conclusion to [...]


    • This fifth and final instalment in the Lady Julia series marks a return to form. It's a twisty murder mystery full of intrigue.This review contains spoilers, so beware!The premise of the novel (the murder of a self-proclaimed medium) was pleasingly dark and engaging. I enjoyed the intricacy of the plot and the constant second-guessing during the course of the investigation.I also really enjoyed the parts of the story that take place in the Romany camp, although I find it highly improbable that i [...]


    • Completed the series. Overall I liked the series. The mystery in this book was a little underwhelming compared to previous books and was my least favourite of the series. It did end Lady Julia Grey's story nicely and left the way open for future books.


    • 3.5 starsI had read the first four books years ago and never had a chance to read this when it first came out, so I grabbed them all and read them straight through so I could finally get to this final installment.It was a real treat to be able to visit again with Nicholas Brisbane and Lady Julia and watch as they went from antagonistic acquaintances solving her husband's murder to a married couple navigating their new life together. Through danger, intrigue, and dealing with their respective fam [...]


    • I loved this one. Yet again, the author has managed to hit my "funny bone", with witty, clear writing, correct grammar and spelling (pedantic, I know, but if you can why not write fluently?), great character and plot development and the continuing charming and oh-so-real relationship between Julia and Nicholas.This is the 5th of the series, and it's astonishing to me how engaged I still am in it. Especially when I consider I read them all back-to-back, and I'm trying to put my finger on why I li [...]


    • The Dark Enquiry is the latest entry in Deanna Raybourn's Lady Julia Grey series. In this installment, Lady Julia and her husband, Nicholas Brisbane, have recently returned to London from both their honeymoon in the Mediterranean and an extended trip to India to solve a murder.Solving murders together is nothing new for Brisbane and Lady Julia;they met when she hired him to solve the murder of her first husband. In fact, their entire courtship was conducted over a series of the recently and felo [...]


    • From the start, the stories of Lady Julia and Nicholas Brisbane have held me captive. I have, over the course of several books watched the two characters grow and change as individuals and as a couple. Even before The Dark Enquiry the two had weathered so much together, so when the investigation in this book turned out to be tied close to the family, I was intrigued to see how everything would work out – for better, or worse.There is, in my opinion, a huge plus column backing up The Dark Enqui [...]


    • 4 STARS "Partners now in marriage and in trade, Lady Julia and Nicholas Brisbane have finally returned from abroad to set up housekeeping in London.

    • Lady Julia series Book #5We join Lady Julia and Nicholas as they set up house together as Man and wfe and try to adjust to their new marital relationship in their old stomping ground of London. Lady Julia's desperate need to partcipate and be a useful part of Nicholas's private inquiry buisness, is once again on a collision course with Nichols's equal need to protect her from the danger and darkness that comes with his life. In this book we see even more layers of who Nicholas is and more of his [...]


    • I liked it; better than The Dark Road to Darjeeling, but it wasn't exactly what I'd hoped it would be. Brisbane is still keeping secrets from Julia, but at least Julia has more or less stopped running around trying to solve mysteries behind his back; they reach a state of mutual respect for each other that was sorely lacking in the last book.Slightly more wordy review: jennoklikes/post/120541


    • It figures that may favorite book in the series seems to be the last. While not my favorite, I really enjoyed this series as a whole. I did begin to lose interest with books three and four, but this last one completely won me over. This was largely due to the progress of Julia's and Brisbane's relationship as both husband and wife and partners in crime. Previous books had Julia's and Brisbane's investigations more or less separate from each other. With Brisbane conducting a professional investig [...]

It seems Bellmont has stumbled, and there are letters floating around that could end his career and his marriage. What starts out as a simple retrieval of the letters turns out to be much more.spies, intrigue and murder.
