Death in Focus Elena Standish #1In the start of an all new mystery series set in pre World War II Europe an intrepid young photographer carries her dead lover's final world shattering message into the heart of Berlin as Hitler ascends to powerOn vacation from London on the beautiful Italian coast twenty eight year old Elena Standish and her older sister Margot have finally been able to move on from the lasting trauma of the Great War in which the newly married Margot lost her husband and the sisters their beloved brother Touring with her camera in hand Elena has found new inspiration in the striking Italian landscape and she's met an eually striking man named I rarely give up on a book but I stopped this one—and early on When I first started reading I thought it seemed awfully romance y for a mystery but I am fascinated by the between the wars period so I kept going But then I got to this passage part of the description of the lead character’s date with a man she’s just met“She leaned back and looked up at him He had remarkable eyes Did she see the pain of memory in them or just imagine it mirroring her own? He held her closer again gently Perhaps he had lost someone too Who hadn’t? They should hold each other tightly and dance perfectly drowned in the music”For my taste that’s just way too schmaltzy and overwroughtI read a couple of Anne Perry books many years ago but I’m not much interested in the Victorian era and I think that’s why I didn’t continue; I don’t really remember I know she is a very popular author and I don’t imagine her writing style has changed a lot so Anne Perry fans will probably like this new series just fine It’s just not for me I’m so glad I only borrowed it from the library and didn’t spend money on it
