    After reading so many TSTL female heroines in YA fiction lately, I decided it was time for a change of pace A nice, cozy turn of the century historical sleuthing mystery Sure, why not I generally love my historical female sleuths, be it the spirited Lady Julia Grey, the lovely and undaunted Lady Emily Ashford, or hell, even the admittedly grating and bookish Amelia Peabody.Surely, Lady Rose Summers would be just the thing to bring to a stop my current trend of face palming every five second a After reading so many TSTL female heroines in YA fiction lately, I decided it was time for a change of pace A nice, cozy turn of the century historical sleuthing mystery Sure, why not I generally love my historical female sleuths, be it the spirited Lady Julia Grey, the lovely and undaunted Lady Emily Ashford, or hell, even the admittedly grating and bookish Amelia Peabody.Surely, Lady Rose Summers would be just the thing to bring to a stop my current trend of face palming every five second as I read about yet another dumb 21st century teenaged chick diving headfirst into danger or heading in the path of a dragon true story, remember Jenny.She sounds awesome, too A suffragette, a privileged daughter of a peer, yet not indifferent to the plights of the working class Surely this intelligent young woman and her gentleman detective friend will be just the thing to bring my spirits up and restore my faith in humanity womanity Holy crap, I have never been ...

    I wasn t a fan of M.C Beaton s Agatha Raisin series at all, so I was quite prepared to dislike Snobbery With Violence intensely That might have been better for my TBR list, but it turned out that Snobbery With Violence hits the spot for me It s not Sayers, of course it s lacking in that incisiveness and depth of characters But it is a fun quick read with characters you canor less get along with sometimes Rose is too spoilt, and Harry Cathcart too blandly typical I actually liked th I wasn t a fan of M.C Beaton s Agatha Raisin series at all, so I was quite prepared to dislike Snobbery With Violence intensely That might have been better for my TBR list, bu...

    I love historical fiction but it usually has such a sad undertone to it Thought this would belighthearted and I was right Mystery is a genre that I usually don t go for either although it isn t on purpose The combination was good and it is a really fast read The beginning is slow though not completely boring I think what the author is trying to do is let the reader get an idea of what the characters are like I was surprised to find that I liked Harrythan Rose You get the point I love historical fiction but it usually has such a sad undertone to it Thought this would belighthearted and I was righ...

    This was just awful Horrible, horrible writing, perhaps the most lamely plotted mystery I ve ever read, and characters that don t approach 2 dimensional, let alone 3 I don t mind a light read at all, but this isn t even helium.

    I really do enjoy cosy mysteries and I prefer historical to contemporary so it was with great expectation that I started this Snobbery with Violence, an Edwardian murder mystery.I must say that I enjoyed it very much and I almost laughed aloud at times Lady Rose Summer was almost unbelievable at times, as she was much focused in the women s rights movement and the equality of rights between the lower and upper classes but at the same time, she seemed unaware of the proper behaviour to live in p I really do enjoy cosy mysteries and I prefer historical to contemporary so it was with great expectation that I started this Snobbery with Violence, an Edwardian murder mystery.I must say that I enjoyed it very much and I almost laughed aloud at times Lady Rose Summer was almost unbelievable at times, as she was much focused in the women s rights movement an...
