Black & Blue by Emma Jameson Book Summary

The New York Times Bestselling Series


Modern art dealer Granville Hardwick has a way with people -- a way of making them wish he were dead. His London gallery is filled with works of questionable merit, his dating pool consists of other men's wives, and his home is the eyesore of a fine old neighborhood. The neighborhood of Scotland Yard's Chief Superintendent Tony Hetheridge, as a matter of fact. So when Hardwick turns up dead, bashed on the head by a rather tasteless reproduction, it's Hetheridge and his new bride, Kate, who embark on solving the case.


When he married Kate, Tony expected things to be different. But with Kate's ne'er-do-well relatives making trouble on the home front, and his own enemies attacking from within Scotland Yard, the case of the dead art dealer and three unfaithful wives might do more than change Mayfair. It might change Lord and Lady Hetheridge forever.

Return to the world of Ice Blue in Black & Blue, the fourth in the New York Times bestselling Lord & Lady Hetheridge mystery series, which readers call "witty," "packed with interesting characters," and "consistently entertaining.

Black & Blue (Emma Jameson) Book Reviews

Marriage & ChangesI have really enjoyed this series featuring Tony and Kate as they solve crimes for Scotland Yard and adjust to their relationship. The cast of characters continues to grow but your favorites make their appearances as well. The series has a charm and a sense of fun. It is much more focused on the characters than the crimes they solve. Tony and Kate are newlyweds and the new marriage is causing some issues at home and at work. Some of the people at Scotland Yard are not happy with the marriage and they have been letting Tony know their feelings. He has kept it all from Kate and it is now hitting the fan. They also are dealing with her mother and sister who are enjoying the publicity that is coming their way and using poor Henry as a tool to make Kate and Tony look bad. This time a neighbor is murdered and the suspect has a connection to them. The victim is not a nice man and enjoys dating married women as well as being involved in the drug trade so he has more than one enemy. His former sister-in-law is quite a character and a strong suspect as well. The ending makes me excited for the next story for them all. There are a lot of changes to come. I received a copy in return for a honest review.Score: 5/5

Lord and Lady Hetherington, an excellent teamWorking my way through all the books in this series and enjoying them immensely. Characters are well drawn with surprises, plot is flawless. One of the most interesting British detective novels I've read..Score: 5/5

Black and blue by Emma JamesonThis is book number four in the series, but I read it as a first and didn’t feel lost. I met all the fun characters and enjoyed the story, which was an easy mystery. I’m looking forward to the next book..Score: 5/5

Black and BlueAlthough the murder case and its investigation and solution was as good as I’ve come to expect, the transformation of CS Hetheridge to Lord Hetheridge, PI was the real attraction if this instalment. Now Lord and Lady can truly work together at their personal strengths without fear of running afoul of the Yard’s rules or corporate culture. I look forward to the next episode..Score: 5/5

Black & BlueThis is the second book I have read by this author and it was quite amusing and entertaining. One note though, this is an American author writing as though English when clearly the spelling is American which just doesn’t suit the material. It would be much more readable with English spelling..Score: 4/5

Paul and His MumThe scenes between these two need to be heavily edited. Especially the chapter when they are at Harrod’s; it just goes on and on. Kick Paul’s Mum out and concentrate more on Tony, Kate and Paul. They are the strong foundation that holds up the structure of your stories..Score: 5/5

Bring back the Hetheridges!I think I may have got the first one as a "Freeby", I can't remember, but I didn't open it for months. Then, I did. It normally takes me a long time to read a book, twice or thrice the time it takes my wife, but I got through it in no time at all. From there, it's taken me precisely four weeks, twenty-eight days, to finish the series. There is something about these books that just keeps you reading! A great read, don't hesitate to buy them all! M.Score: 5/5

A Fantastic ReadI enjoyed the series thus far and this one is no exception. The interaction between the characters is so believable and Emma gets you embedded into the story very quickly, to such an extent that you just want to know more. The development of the characters from the start adds to that realism within your mind..Score: 4/5

Black & BlueTony and Kate are not just husband and wife. Tony is Kate’s senior officer in the police force. They work well together but Tony has been fighting to keep his job after his marriage. He is not only investigating a murder but keeping this truth from his wife. Brilliant story.Score: 5/5

Another excellent mystery solved!Tony and Kate have returned form their Honeymoon to Kate's relatives causing chaos, a dead art dealer in their neighbourhood and more hassles from inside the yard. This, the fourth of the Lord and Lady Hetheridge mystery series yet again sees the duo not just fend off attacks from the murder suspects but from all angles. The book is filled with witty and quirky characters and the old stalwarts including Mrs Snell, Sir Duncan Godington, DS Bhar and his mum all make reappearances. I had thoroughly enjoyed the previous in the series and this one did not disappoint too. I was gifted this tale in exchange for an honest opinion..Score: 5/5
