A Fatal Waltz

Alexander, Tasha. A Fatal Waltz. Another uncorrected proof from William Morrow division of Harper Collins.

6 words: Lady Emily, amateur sleuth, again prevails.

"Anybody can be good in the country. There are no temptations there." Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray

Evidently Wilde was wrong because Lady Emily Ashton needs to solve the murder of Lord Basil Fortesque which occurs at a country house party. The solution takes her to Vienna and back and appears to involve an anarchist movement. While in Vienna, Lady Emily's friend Cecile du Lac has an affair with Gustav Klimt.

A light, romantic novel with a mystery.

Fiction. Historical mystery. 2008. 289 pages.


  1. No temptations in the country--if only. :-) This sounds like a good summer book.

  2. LF - It is a very light read with a little romance!

  3. If you don't mind sending to Canada please put my name in the hat. Sounds like a fun book and Klimt is my favourite artist!

  4. It sounds fascinating!!! I would love to receive it!!!

    Thanks and good luck everyone!!!
