Nene Adams is a native Floridian, but currently lives in Holland with her life partner, the artist Corrie Kuipers. I enjoyed Black by Gaslight well enough to look forward to the next in the series, but Madonna of the Sorrows really blew me away. The heroines I had come to love were back, and better developed. Adams's storytelling, which is always good, was even sharper, more sophisticated, and harder hitting. Her attention to historical detail was spot on, as ever.

There was a smell of spring in the air, from the river, stronger even than the smell of the alley. If he stayed in the alley all night he was going to be wet by morning. The man was out of his depth, Fred muttered. Even so, he was too docile. He wants the chest back but he’s not desperate for it. If he knew what it was, he’d be desperate. Ten thousand bucks isn’t much to offer for something that’s worth the gross domestic product of Tasmania.

part 2 Song of the Lioness series. They were on the last leg of an errand in the coastal hills. Alanna shook her head. They could probably find shelter somewhere under the trees, if luck was with them. Clucking to Moonlight, she picked up their pace. In the distance thunder rolled, and a few drops of rain blew into her face. She shivered and swore again. Checking to make sure the scroll she carried was safe in its waterproof wrapping and tucked between her tunic and shirt, Alanna shrugged into a hooded cloak.

I enjoyed this book on many levels. First of all, I found it to be a great read in terms of the mystery -- much like a Sherlock Holmes mystery where you sense the danger before it is actually acknowledged by the characters. Surprisingly, I did not find this frustrating. Partially because the novel is so well written, and partially because of the intense relationship between the main characters.

Having said this, I was actually stung by the ending. Perhaps the author meant for the hurtful beginning to explain the hurtful ending. I would feel much better knowing there is a sequel in the works to "right the wrong" that the main characters feel at the end of the novel.

I appreciate what I believe the author was trying to convey with this ending, but in order to fully enjoy the memory, I needed it to end differently. I can't say too much more without sighting specifics and I don't want to spoil anything for anyone else.

Perhaps I grew too close to the characters or it just hit too close to home with regard to some of my own experiences where things just happened and seeing both persepctives, there is really noone to blame.

This author is so very talented and these characters are so very compelling - I do so hope that there is a sequel in the works.

I enjoyed Black by Gaslight well enough to look forward to the next in the series, but Madonna of the Sorrows really blew me away.

The heroines I had come to love were back, and better developed. Adams's storytelling, which is always good, was even sharper, more sophisticated, and harder hitting. Her attention to historical detail was spot on, as ever.

The one thing that bothered me in the first book was the unshakability of the heroines' relationship, but Madonna challenges even this. It leaves nothing sacred.

Outstanding. A breathless ride. I'm very much looking forward to the next one. I just wish there were more than five stars.

The second book in the gaslight series.

It's May 1889 and lovers Lina and Rhiannon are back in another detective mystery.
Lina and Rhiannon meet up with an American woman at their local Turkish baths. She intrigues them with a mystery which in turn leads to murder and the theft of a painting. The clues lead Lina and Rhiannon to Paris. Whilst there they encounter a person from Lina's past, which leads to the truth concerning The Madonna Of The Sorrows. Unfortunately, it also results in the loss of trust between Rhiannon and Lina. Can their relationship recover from it?
Another enjoyable adventure with Lina the lady detective and her companion Rhiannon. A worthwhile read that was hard to put down.

I have read all of the on-line stories and the first book in the Gaslight series and I was really looking forward to the second book. With any series that I read, I form a bond with the characters which includes expectations about what they will do or not do and I need to be able to relate to the lead characters to stay interested in the story. In this book, Lina exhibits personality traits and self destructive behaviors that were not consistant with her personality charactaristics in previous books. I stopped reading and went to the end of the book to see where the author was going. The end of the book reminds me of the old "B" thrillers they used to show on the Saturday afternoon movies. Drop somebody off a cliff so the kids would come back the next week to see the next installment. I am sure that a sequel is in the works but I am not interested.

I have to say that I was very pleased with this effort. I have read all of the online parts to this series, and this one fits in perfectly. Adams gives a real sense of history and immediacy in this one!
