Series: Jemima Shore. Just to say you were sorry, just to repent. The voice put a very nasty emphasis on the word repent as if describing a most unpleasant activity.

Series: Jemima Shore. Was it going to be like the song then, his song, cool, oh so coo-ool repentance?' The person picked up a long-stemmed flower and pretended to use it as a microphone: then the voice crooned the last four words slowly, mockingly, gloatingly. Was that what you thought - that you would come back, come back here to beautiful Lark, and get away with it, did you expect that?

This remarkable book is much more than a biographical selection.

Celebrated actress Christabel Cartwright trades her country house, its staff of servants, and her husband for a reckless affair. This remarkable book is much more than a biographical selection. It examines how Antonia Fraser's heroines have held and wrested the reins of power from their (consistently male) adversaries. History & Fiction.

Each of Antonia Fraser’s four Jemima Shore mysteries has enlarged the audience for that redoubtable and . It was my first Antonia Fraser book, and I loved it. I read a few others in the series, but Cool Repentance is still the one I enjoyed most.

This new one is set against a theatrical background and shows all the narrative skills that have marked the works of its distinguished author along with an ever-increasing quality of suspense. It is the chilling story of Christobel.

Or rather, when it was discussed in the light of what happened later, everyone seemed to have a different version of how the idea arose. The Megalith contingent - Jemima, Cherry, Guthrie Carlyle. as well as Spike Thompson - received their invitations from Nat Fitzwilliam. This left Jemima with the distinct impression, confirmed by Guthrie, that the initiative had come from Nat in the first place. Unquestionably Nat regarded the occasion as yet another opportunity for exercising his directorial powers.

Cool Repentance book. I love the riveting popular history and biography books written by Lady Antonia Fraser, especially ROYAL CHARLES and THE WEAKER VESSEL. More than that, I love the idea of Lady Antonia Fraser - a stunningly beautiful English aristocrat who writes mystery novels for fun. But whenever I pick up one of these books I'm just, I don't know, bored to death within about ten pages.

It was so good my 60# puppy ate the back pages before I finished it. I did learn 'who done it' however by piecing the pages together that he did not swallow.

Frasier's novels are always a wonderful look back in time to the 70s and early 80s. If you like Barbara Pym, you will like this. (I like both).

Jemima Shore Investigator goes to Larminster to cover the small local theater festival held in that town by the sea. What seems like it will be a boring and standard assignment, turns into a free-for-all as the return of an infamous local actress to the stage sets tempers flaring. Murder follows murder as Jemima begins to have her own ideas about who is to blame.

It is really a mark of how good Fraser is as a detective writer that I really enjoyed this book despite the unbelievable ending. While not as good as some of the other Fraser novels, the characters still have depth and the writing has a fine and subtle quality well above that of most detective fiction novels. If you have not read Fraser before, I would begin with Quiet as a Nun, not Cool Repentance. If already a Fraser fan, it is still enjoyable, even when it does not deserve to be.

A previous reviewer has said that Cool Repentance is not the best in the Jemima Shore series.For me it was. It was my first Antonia Fraser book, and I loved it. I read a few others in the series, but Cool Repentance is still the one I enjoyed most.
