The Secret Portrait
A bit light but still much more interesting than Shadows in Scarlet. It's a kind of pale version of Dan Brown's Da Vinci Code tho and getting more repetitious by the moment, oh look villain divides hero and heroine thru trick, they fall for it but eventually figure it out, villain does it again, they fall for it again.
Faced with much better books to read, I've dropped this one, I just don't really care what happens in the end or to the characters.
Shadows in Scarlet
I enjoyed the first two books of hers that I read, Ashes to Ashes and Dust to Dust, very much. But yuck, this one is just boring, trite stuff. The most interesting character in the book is the cat who mostly sits on the windowsill. On the other hand, Lucifer's Crown has turned out to be more interesting.
