Consequences of Sin book. On the other hand, there's a certain elegant sparsity to Langley-Hawthorne's prose. And while the romantic sucker in me felt vaguely cheated by the relative dearth of expounding upon the sentiments blooming between our heroine and the obligatorily dashing Lord Wrotham, there is nevertheless a certain refined sweetness to the brief exchanges they do have.

Comments to eBook Consequences of Sin
Fecage
I read a review of this book that was not favorable. The writer of that review was correct. I read the first few pages and was sorry I didn't follow the recommendations of the review.
Jugami
The plot of this book seems to be a combination of the worst potboilers ever written. The characters are completely wooden. Don't waste your time.
Cordanius
Check your copy before accepting - mine has a printing error. Page 86 is followed by pages 35-86, and then page 135. Pages 87-134 are missing. Pity, as I was enjoying this Victorian mystery. I hope to find a decent copy again.

Sorry to have to say this, but this book/story is just not "my cuppa tea". Couldn't get past the first chapter.

Consequences of Sin, the first episode in the new mystery series starring Ursula Marlow, was simply one of the best murder novels I've read in awhile. The book totally took me by surprise giving me much more than I ever expected to get out of it. The cover design gives the future reader the impression that the story will be a light and fluffy feminist cozy mystery, while in fact, in actuality, this is an extremely well crafted well plotted convoluted crime puzzle to unravel. It will take you down many paths and lead you to many startling revelations that you wont see coming as you devour chapter after chapter.

When Ursula gets a midnight phone call from her friend and fellow suffragette member Freddie (short for Winifred), she is whisked away to Freddie's home to find her friend hysterical due to a dead female body in her bed. Not knowing who to call or what to do, Ursula phones her father's lawyer and friend Lord Oliver Wrotham. Upon his immediate arrival he urges Ursula to leave promptly as to not be seen on the premise and to avoid causing her family unnecessary scandal. Freddie unfortunately is taken to prison, charged with murdering her lover Laura, the daughter of one of Ursula's father's business associates.

Not satisfied with leaving Freddie's case in the hands of the law, Ursula soon endeavors to take matters into her own hands, and begins to try and solve the crime and find the murderer herself. Soon more young women are turning up dead, and as the pages turn into the thick of things, Ursula's own father is also shot and killed. The story moves quickly and the scenes get quite heated as each turned page adds more to the mystery and as Ursula unburies some deeply hidden family secrets. After her father's funeral she journeys into the house attic and as she digs deep into her mother's old trunks, Ursula uncovers facts that lead her to believe her own father had something seriously horrible to hide.

Wild escapades throughout the English countryside and a riveting ocean journey aboard the famed ocean liner, The Lusitania, has Ursula disguised as a man and bound for South America's Orinoco jungle. The story maintains a fast pace and is very exciting as the chase is on to find the answers that will free Winifred from prison. A romantic interest for Ursula is also nicely entwined around the thread of mystery, and the story's ending brings an engaging page turning climax and a rather shocking ending that reveals macabre events in her father's past and a killer gone mad with revenge. I can't praise this new series and promising author enough, and I plan to immediately dive into The Serpent and The Scorpion, the second of Ursula Marlow's adventures.

Given that this debut novel and first installment in a series by Clare Langeley- Hawthorne features an Oxford educated young woman of the money classes, who is also a suffragette, comparisons are bound to be made between this new series and Gillian Linscott's excellent Nell Bray series. Being a fervent fan of the Nell Bray series, and given that I really enjoyed "Consequences of Sin" my verdict is that while there are more differences than similarities between the two series, there is much to enjoy about "Consequences of Sin" and that there is much about Ursula Marlow that Nell Bray fans will approve of and take to.

While Ursula Marlow's father, the self-made industrialist wants his only daughter to marry well and settle down, Oxford educated Ursula (who also happens to be a suffragette) wants to decide her own fate, without any parental pressures. And when a fellow suffragette, Winifred Stanford-Jones, and close friend finds herself accused of murder, Ursula decides to do all in her power to help Winifred, much to her father's dismay. And when in the course of her investigations, Ursula discovers that Winifred may be taking the fall for some kind of vendetta against her father and his business associates, Ursula's resolve to discover the truth and absolve Winifred only strengthens. If only she can get her father and his lawyer, the maddening Lord Wortham, to see that she is no longer a child to be placated and soothed...

Like the other reviewers, I stayed up all night to finish this book. "Consequences of Sin" may not be the most suspenseful read of the month, but the author has cleverly layered her book with enough intriguing plot twists to keep things humming and interesting, and so kept me happily ensnared till the very last page. Add the absorbing storyline to the book's taking and engaging heroine, and you have a novel that pleases on every level. So that while "Consequences of Sin" did not quite compare vintage Nell Bray novel, "Consequences of Sin" still was a very good read, and I for one, am eagerly looking forward to the next installment in this series.
