The Cavalier Case (Jemima Shore #7)

3.1  ·  Rating Details ·  73 Ratings  ·  8 Reviews
Bestselling author Fraser combines her passion for history with her wickedly readable fiction in her most glittering Jemima Shore mystery yet. It seems a 17-century viscount has been stepping out of his portrait--just before the violent death of his 16th successor. While a bitter family feud ensues and the body count rises, Shore hopes to unmask a flesh and blood killer.

My first Fraser mystery. Couldn't finish ... terrible. She should stick to writing history. So, you ask: why terrible?
1) the lead, Shore, seemed devoid of personality.
2) sentences were all "run-on" ... and although grammatically correct, and
perhaps useful for more serious material, kept putting my mind to wander.
3) uninteresting characters. Not sure why. Perhaps, despite - or because of -
all their banter and chatter, they were caricatures and unreal.

I always thought of this series as “relaxation” writing for the author, as opposed to Dame Fraser’s more serious historical works. The books are light, easy to read, even if they do deal with murder. This wasn’t one of my favorites but I still enjoyed it.

This was the third of the Antonia Fraser mysteries I had on the shelf, and while it held my attention tolerably in rereading, I don't know that I'd say it will become a classic.

Amusing mystery with sleuth Jemima Shore. I didn't guess who did it!

Better then the last lot from this series but still not amazing, the ending was very disappointing x

An enjoyable Jemima Shore caper, full of red-herrings and false turns.

A novel, and outside of her standard.
