“I enjoyed this series up to the sixth book and it became to routine predicable. Stopped reading after that.”Skip wrote this review 2 weeks ago. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No

“The book is mostly a romance story with some mystery thrown in. While there are murders going around them and they are playing at detectives, the characters are mostly wrapped up in their new romance. It brings to mind a bit of E.M. Forster's Maurice, which isn't a bad thing. The sex scenes are fairly chaste, which I haven't seen in a lot of books lately and haven't seen at all recently in books with gay characters. The romance is monogamous, which I definitely haven't seen recently with gay characters. On the con side, the characters are a bit thin, the plot is a bit thin, the romance is a bit thin. On the plus side however the characters don't do anything out of what the author seems to be stating is their character, and their behavior matches fairly well the back history for them that is provided. The plot is thin but not outlandish, it's fairly understandable. I would really like to see future works by the same author, see if she can build the depth while keeping the strengths shown here.”yiotatort wrote this review Saturday, April 16, 2011.

“A very good book, set in 1905 English Oxford College. One of the few places for that time where it is actually plausible a m/m relationship could be formed with an almost marriage type arraignment and no one would notice. The Sex to Plot ratio here is 3% Sex and even that 3% never lifts above an almost G rating. The central mystery here is pretty thin, and there isn't really enough clues to make it possible for the reader to figure out the murder before our protaganists do, but having said that, I still really liked this book.
I'm off to buy all the other volumes of this series from the Kindle Store”
“The first in the Lessons series. At the turn of the century Oliver and Jonty are teaching at St. Bride's where a series of murders occur. Excellent read! I couldn't put it down and can't wait to read the next installment.”Sheila G wrote this review Sunday, November 29, 2009. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
