    I rarely give a two-star review. Authors work hard to create manuscripts, and I like Grant’s work. I read historical fiction between books of contemporary suspense, mystery, and thriller, so it’s not my primary genre. I’ve not reviewed the last few books in this series because I felt that they were weak, but I’m throwing in my two cents now. This plot rambles, as does the dialogue. References to characters from previous books are interruptions because there are so many characters now, from so ma I rarely give a two-star review. Authors work hard to create manuscripts, and I like Grant’s work. I read historical fiction between books of contemporary suspense, mystery, and thriller, so it’s not my primary genre. I’ve not reviewed the last few books in this series because I felt that they were weak, but I’m throwing in my two cents now. This plot rambles, as does the dialogue. References to characters from previous books are interruptions because there are so many characters now, from so many books, that I have to stop and try to remember who they are and what they did. The author doesn't provide much (if any) backstory about the relationships between these recurring characters and the primary characters, leaving that work to the reader. Also, the dialogue is very heavy. I believe that it needs a tight edit to ensure that every word is moving the story forward and to remove redundancies. Lastly, the ending is completely inconclusive. It's almost as if this book is a serial installment instead of a novel. I reached the end, and it was as if Grant just got tired of writing the story and stopped without tying together loose ends. I like Grant’s primary characters, and she does a good job of developing them. But it might be time to rethink this series, or slow down production enough to retrench, deepen the storyline, and actually conclude the story. Even a winning racehorse gets to retire one day, when it’s spent.

    This novella is the perfect set up for the next Rannoch mystery. While preparing for his wedding to Laura, Raoul is called upon to find and retrieve some letters that are being used to blackmail his old friend Lord Weston. This sets our friendly band of spies - the Rannochs, Davenports, and Raoul - in motion to solve the problem. Lord Weston is a new character to the series, so his introduction provides some interesting background information about Raoul.

While preparing for his wedding to Laura, Raoul is called upon to find and retrieve some letters that are being used to blackmail his old friend Lord Weston. This sets our friendly band of spies - the Rannochs, Davenports, and Raoul - in motion to solve the problem. Lord Weston is a new character to the series, so his introduction provides some interesting background information about Raoul. I really enjoyed the action scenes with undercover work by Malcolm and Suzanne to retrieve the letters. They were back in top spy form that makes this an exciting series. Julien kept popping in and out to add some interesting moments that promise some intrigue that will bind him to the Rannochs in the near future. He is becoming one of my favorite characters, as layers are peeled back, but always keeping his air of mystery. The wedding was a hit, giving insight into Laura's and Raoul's feelings about this major commitment in their lives, as well as bringing together a diverse group of people to celebrate. Many questions and unresolved issues were brought up about the Elsinore League, indicating it will be a major nemesis in the next novel.

    Reading a Malcolm and Melanie book feels like coming home after a long and tiring day. I love the main characters created by the author as well as the varied cast of friends, family and enemies. It begins just prior to the marriage of Malcolm’s father, a long awaited happy event, and ends with the solution to a complicated blackmail plot. There are many twists and turns involving a multiple cast of characters and I am so grateful to the author for a cast list of families and friends in the begin Reading a Malcolm and Melanie book feels like coming home after a long and tiring day. I love the main characters created by the author as well as the varied cast of friends, family and enemies. It begins just prior to the marriage of Malcolm’s father, a long awaited happy event, and ends with the solution to a complicated blackmail plot. There are many twists and turns involving a multiple cast of characters and I am so grateful to the author for a cast list of families and friends in the beginning of the book. I consulted that list many times as the plot thickened and I needed to remember the marriages and the ever growing families of the beau monde. This perhaps wasn’t the most suspenseful in the series, but instead serves to pave the way for more exciting events to come. In the end, I’m always grateful for another glimpse into the lives and times of the Rannoch family.

    Always A Spy Another great mystery about Malcom and Mélanie Rannoch!! The main characters are all together trying to solve another problem . The marriage of Raoul and Laura is schedule in this story. I have enjoyed reading all of the books about the Rannoch’s and their friends and family.

    I adore this series. To be frank, I’m grading on a curve because of my love for these characters. The last several books in the series have seemed more loosely strung than those earlier in the series.
