John Rawlings' life is idyllic; he owns a successful Apothecary business, is head-over-heels in love with his . January 2006 : UK Hardback.

John Rawlings' life is idyllic; he owns a successful Apothecary business, is head-over-heels in love with his wife Emilia, and is completely besotted with his three-year-old daughter Rose. With another baby on the way the London-based family have never been happier. As Christmas approaches, spirits are high all around and the festive season is in full swing.

John found his eye wandering to the .andscape outside, struck again by the ever-lengthening shadows and how they made dark, mysterious pools beneath the trees. The next scene brought his attention back to the masque for Emilia entered with the Irishman, declaring her undying love for him. She looked stunningly beautiful, he thought, her little face accentuated by theatrical make-up. She was also quite a good actress, speaking up loudly and clearly and remembering all her lines

A John Rawlings Georgian mystery - Apothecary John Rawlings has been summoned to Devon by his beautiful but unpredictable mistress. His fellow stagecoach passengers are a motley crew, and include a large and talkative German lady, a dance-master and a bare-knuckle fighter known as the Black Pyramid. Before the journeys end a man has been found brutally murdered, and Rawlings is once again drawn into a complex and dangerous intrigue. From Publishers Weekly.

John Rawlings has never been happier. His apothecary business is doing well and he is blissfully content with his charming wife and adorable little daughter.

I love this series. Since I discovered them through "Death at The Beggar's Opera," then went to the beginning of the series and read them in order. This is the weakest of the lot, and i was really disappointed in it. I knew the killer as soon as the person made the first appearance, and too much of the book depended on coincidence: he befriends just the right person to get him near the site of the crime, no one sees through his two disguises, Joe and Elizabeth easily obtain employment at Gunnersbury House with no problem at all. It was all too pat. She's written better.

I threw myself into this book expecting something unusual and was definitely not wrong! Wish the murders were not so hard to figure out. Thought this man Michael was the one but you make your own list of suspects. John Rawlings stole my heart!

The character of John Rawlings has grown into an old and trusted friend and the author's clear and concise writing style makes the pages fly by. The books are good, well researched historical murder mysteries. They are easy reading and a welcome change from the crash, bang wallop of many of the books being published today. Good escapism for the reader, away from the bumps and grinds of everyday life

In this book John Rawling's loses his wife to a brutal killing, while they are both at a country house, where a play is taking place in which John's wife is taking part. Immediately following the play John goes out into the grounds to meet his wife, only to find her lying beneath a tree with a fatal stab wound. While he is cradling her in his arms other people arrive on he scene and immediately jump to the conclusion that John is the killer.

Rawling's is forcibly removed and locked in the cellar of the house but makes good his escape with the help of a young woman. After fleeing from the house and going to a place of safety for a few days john Rawlings dons a disguise and with the help of a lady friend returns to the scene vowing to find the perpetrator of the murder that his has left him a widower and his little girl asking for her mother . . .

First Sentence: Like many seasons that are destined to be severe, the winter of 1764 started moderately enough with mild evenings, crisp leaf falls, and a lot of fine clear sunshine in the daytime.

Apothecary John Rawlings is father to a very intelligent daughter, Rose, married to Emilia and expecting their second child. Emilia is surprised to be invited to Gunnersbury House and to take part in a Christmas Mask for Princess Amelia. When, after the play, John looks for Emilia, he finds her bleeding to death in the snow wearing the red cloak of another woman who claims she was the intended victim. But it is John who is accused of murder, set to be arrested and encouraged to escape in order to find the true killer.

Unfortunately, this was one of my least favorite books in what has otherwise been a very good series. However, it is not without its strengths.

Lake creates a very good sense of place and time through her detailed descriptions, manners, dress and the syntax of the characters' speech. She also conveys a wonderful sense of impending doom without using foreshadowing, as is so common. That is something I very much appreciated.

There was a redundancy in describing Rose, but I can forgive that. What I've always had a problem with is a fault in John's character. On one hand, John is smart, generous and I appreciate the gratitude and affection has for his father. However, it is his apparent fickleness toward women that has made him a difficult character toward I can feel empathy. That is a problem. Not liking the protagonist can definitely shade my feeling toward the story. Beyond that, I had a greater complaint.

The greatest fault I had with the book was that the story's plot lacked depth. There was one very large coincidence and, to me, the killer was obvious from the start, even if the motive was not.

Every author should be allowed an off book. Due to the strength of her previous books, I am not giving up on Ms. Lake. Instead, my fingers are crossed that the next book in this series will return to the series I so enjoy.
