LoveReading View on Silent in the Sanctuary

Another instalment of the Victorian set crime novels. Once again Lady Julia Grey and Nicholas Birsbane find themselves thrown together in their investigative ways when a murder occurs at Julia’s fathers estate during a family gathering. A feisty heroine, a plot that holds your interest to the end and a dash of sexual tension between the two protagonists. Great stuff.

Silent in the Sanctuary Synopsis

Fresh from a six-month sojourn in Italy, Lady Julia returns home to Sussex to find her father’s estate crowded with family and friends—but dark deeds are afoot at the deconsecrated abbey, and a murderer roams the ancient cloisters. Much to her surprise, the one man she had hoped to forget—the enigmatic and compelling Nicholas Brisbane—is among her father’s houseguests…


But the homecoming celebrations quickly take a ghastly turn when one of the guests is found brutally murdered in the chapel, and a member of Lady Julia’s own family confesses to the crime. Certain of her cousin’s innocence, Lady Julia resumes her unlikely and deliciously intriguing partnership with Nicholas Brisbane, setting out to unravel a tangle of deceit before the killer can strike again.
