Deadly Affairs was another great instalment in Brenda Joyce’s Deadly series. The same characters are back as in the first two with a few new additions here and there to make the story work. As always I loved some of the characters and was annoyed at various points by others – mainly the heroine Francesca Cahill. Heiress, reformer, amateur sleuth, this woman is vastly different from the other young women of wealth in her social circle – which is why I suppose, Miss Cahill has attracted the [...]
***4.25/5***Cette série n'en finit pas de me séduire. Cette Francesca Cahill, femme moderne dans le New-York des années 1900, est un réel rafraîchissement, une série totalement à part dans les A&P. Mais ce tome 3 se démarque des précédents par une enquête de meilleure qualité, et une réelle évolution des relations entre les différents personnages, y compris les secondaires, pour mon plus grand plaisir.J'avais déjà une folle passion pour l'héroïne, ainsi que pour Rick Bragg [...]
My Francesca Cahill re-read continues with us finding our heroine in a quandary. Her parents are finally getting a clue in regards to her sleuthing adventures. This is especially concerning to her mother Julia because she hates the idea of her spending time with Rick Bragg. Which only makes him more attractive to our heroine.This is book that so many things are revealed to all the players involved. Of course, Calder asserts himself in the storyline, but his motives are hidden to everyone. All Fr [...]
This is another great novel Calder or Bragg it is killing me LOL. Again, the mystery takes a backseat to the constant tension between these three. I am reading right through them and I don't know or want to know who she ends up with (unless I read it first!)
I am enjoying this series. Not many romantic suspense books are set in New York at the beginning of the 20th century.
Deadly Affairs is book three of the "Deadly Series". These books focus on the character of Francesca Cahill, an american heiress in turn-of-the-century New York who is a bit of a sleuth. She and police comissioner Rick Bragg have a new mystery to solve.In this book, yet again, the mystery/murder story wasn't very good. It is rather simple, straightfoward and not that interesting. So, I'd think the author would press more on the romance between the two main characters and on the upcoming love tri [...]
There is romance, mystery and a wonderful sense of New York City in 1902. The mystery was solid and it wasn’t until all was revealed that it made complete sense, which is a good thing! And while I like Rick, he does have a wife and in 1902 he is really bringing scandal on Francesca by continuing to encourage her. They are perfectly suited, but he is not available. That is the interest in this series for me because it is so true to life. Sometimes there is just no perfect choice and the journey [...]

I didn't realize that this was the third book of a trilogy (or more I am not sure) but even accounting for that, all the characters are either boring or unlikable. I made it eight chapters in and I don't care about any of them. The mystery isn't even really a major plot. I'm sure I missed something in the previous two books about Bragg and Francesca but I hardly care about them. There appears to be a lot going on and passages are happening in short snippets that make it impossible to care about [...]
Much better than the first two books in the series. Francesca wasn't as naively stupid in the one. Despite his bad boy persona, I really like Hart and am looking forward to seeing how the relationship between he and Francesca develops.
Everybody seems to be either beautiful and rich or dashingly handsome and rich and I am not too sure on whether Brenda Joyce wants to focus more on the love story or on the investigative part of the plot.

I guess that by this book, I have begun to root for Calder Hart, Bragg's half-brother. I guess I'm just attracted to the bad boy :). I'm still intrigued by Francesca's soap opera life.

Where's the next booook???!!!!
We met Calder in the second book. We get to know him better in each novel. Francesca also encounters Calder more and is curious about him. Her and Rick are out to solve another crime.
Francesca makes a fascinating character. This is clearly romantic suspense at the dawn of the 20th century.
Die Romanze rückt mehr in den Vordergrund!
Love this saga! Quite enthralling :)
Love the book.
I loved the mystery but I didn't expect Francesca to be involved with a married man and his half brother.
Lots of laughs in this book. The mystery part is lacking a little but I think that is due to how many characters lives and stories are involved in this series. Nice fun read.
