However, not all of Michele Jaffe's books are bad. Rosebush, for example, was fairly enjoyable. But, The Stargazer? It's one of the worst books I have ever read and I think they only stargazed like once in the entire book so the title doesn't even make sense!. She paints a beautiful picture of life during that era. And like all good romance novels there is smoldering sexuality and good looking characters. But this book is more than just a romance novel in a beautiful setting.

She could almost sense her triumph as she proved to those stubborn men in Padua that women had their own perfect anatomy and were not just flawed versions of men. Wandering wombs, hah! she thought to herself. She remembered hearing of her father’s debates on the subject with Andrea Vesalius when he was first starting his brilliant career, and she smiled as she imagined her book on a shelf somewhere as a companion to his.

I read The Stargazer when I was 14, 14 years ago this summer, after. picking it up at Barnes and Noble on an absolutely whim. I was just drawn to it. I remember staying up all night and reading Lady Killer in 7 hours. I looked up and the Sun was up. I love the Arboretti.

I like the novel name very much and it seems to be an interesting one however the plot is fairly light. Ian is not a good hero at all, he doesn't deserve Bianca. Bianca fights on her own for everything in her life and Ian did not do a single thing except at the very end. Ian basically obsessed with himself and feel pity and pathetic to what happened to him in the past. Moreover, when Bianca needed the most support from him, all Ian did was get drunk and completely let her face her own fate. What a real hero!

The more I read, the more I dislike Ian but Crispin and the rest of Arboretti seems to be interesting (again and keep my finger crossed that it's not disappointing). Nilo is a sweetest boy ever.

Michele Jaffe is one of the best authors I have read so far and that is saying something for I read about three to four books a week. A few years back I read this book in paper from the library and continued on to the rest of the series and I loved them all. I was happy to be able to find The Stargazer on my kindle so I can read it again. It's amazing how not only does she write a believable story about love (without being twilight cheesy) but she also adds in a thrill of death and betrayal. This book keeps you engaged the whole time. I give it 5+ stars.

Mystery and intrigue that takes place in Venice. Bianca's love of science ends up with her being in a tight situation and accused of murder. Will she be able to clear her name? And what really went on and who is the real villain? The only perplexing thing in the novel is why the Count is so determined to believe she is guilty?

I expected a great deal when I purchased this book, but I was greatly disappointed. The prose is dry, the plot contrived and basically ridiculous, the dialog boring. It reads like a medical textbook. I started to read it by skipping ten pages at a time, but then realized that I'd have to ignore the whole book just to get to the last page.

i love this series and owned it in paperback first but wanted for my kindle. i really wish she would write more in the adult line. Her characters are well developed with a great plot relevant to time era. It's a good story to just get lost in.

What a wonderful book! A real breath of fresh air in the historical romance genre. The setting, dialog, and characters were all unique and well-developed. I can't wait to read about the rest of the Arboretti -- keep writing, Ms. Jaffe!
Melipra
I enjoy the idea of the book but I agree with another review where it seemed the book was written in such a way to allow more of the sex scenes than it was to develop a more plausible plot line.
I got 'The Stargazer' after enjoying another novel by the author. It kept me reading well into the night to discover who the murderer was and what happened between the main characters. Recommended.
