    2 thoughts on “Good Morning, Irene

    1. I'm not really sure how to rate this one. I liked it at some points, or I really enjoyed it. Then, it began dragging and I got a bit bored with the whole thing. Which meant I spaced out and lost a lot of the plot. In the end, I wasn't reading it for the plot because I'd lost so much of it, but I was just reading to finish it and because I like the characters.Honestly, I love how Ms Douglas characterizes Irene. Mainly because she's so close to being like the Irene Adler I was first really introdu [...]

    2. Worth reading but definitely one of the weaker installments of Irene Adler, a bad ass detective and rival to Sherlock Holmes."Good Morning, Irene" has a convoluted plot line with a few too many coincidences to make it credible but it's still a fun ride with Irene, Godfrey and the ever faithful, though disapproving Nell, solving another mystery amid the A-list celebrities of the late 19th centuryRecommended.

    3. A most excellent sequel to "Goodnight Mr. Holmes." The narrative picks up almost exactly were the first book left off and then throws Irene and Nell into a most tangled web of Blackmail, Murder, and Kidnapping. The Norton's and Nell travle to Monte Carlo in order to unwrap the twisted plot only to be constanly dogged by the one and only Mr. Sherlock Holmes.It is a mystery well worth reading though Holmes is not used very effectivly and the writing and plot seem a little more Agathia Christie tha [...]

    4. Anyone who enjoyed Sherlock Holmes would surely loves this book, which features "the Woman",Irene Adler, her husband and best friend,as well as brief appearances from the Great Detective himself.This story has all the marks of a typical Holmes mystery with mysterious tattoos, shadowy sailors and maidens in distress.A very enjoyable read.

    5. "The Seine reflected Notre Dame's famous towers in a wriggling fashion that resembled the work of those demented Impressionist paint hurlers."Never has an observation more eloquently revealed a character's personality! :-)

    6. Another good novel inspired by Sherlock Holmes. He is mostly in the background, and the book centers around Irene Adler, whom Holmes called "The Woman" because she was the only person who had ever defeated him, and she was also talented, beautiful, clever, etc.This was very enjoyable. Good sleuthing, scenes of Monte Carlo, colorful characters, etc. I will read more in the series.

    7. A fun little romp. I needed a "day off" without serious thinking, and this was a perfect book with which to spend the day.

    8. A little bit of a slow start, but once it got going, a thoroughly enjoyable read. So much fun to hear about the intersection of Irene Adler and Sherlock Holmes. Love Irene's companion, Nell. She comes into her own in this second book of the series.

    9. This book was quite interesting becuase it actually starts from Irene Norton (Adler) who was known in one of Holmes adventures- "A scandal in Bohemia". Holes was eventaully was tricked by Irene, and eventually escapes. However, the newspaper said that both Godfrey Norton (Irene's husband) and Irene herself was dead in a train accident. Holmes eventually finds himself in a case in France (Monte Carlo) and went to Paris. He discovered that both Irene and Godfrey was alived, and had forgotten all g [...]

    10. THE ADVENTURESS (original title – “Good Morning, Irene”) – G+Carole Nelson Douglas – 2nd in seriesDiva/detective Irene Adler and her bridegroom, handsome barrister Godfrey Norton, are honeymooning in Paris when they become embroiled in an investigation: a drowned sailor's body has been recovered from the Seine, and on his chest is a tattoo. This clue will lead Irene to the first beautiful blond American princess of Monaco, political and matrimonial treachery, and a sword duel as she un [...]

    11. Irene Adler, the diva detective, finds her enforced anonymity following her supposed death hard to bear, even with distractions like touring Paris in male garb with Sarah Bernhardt. Thus, she greets the distraction of a curiously tattooed corpse plucked from the Seine with an enthusiasm that appalls her prudish Boswell, Penelope. A suicidal girl, some intrusive sailors, and singular sealing wax lead her to the paradisiacal Monte Carlo and a twenty-year-old secret. The period detail is excellent, [...]

    12. The Irene Adler series is one of my favorite series. I've read them multiple times. And after this latest re-read, I love the story all the same.If you like the stories by Arthur Conan Doyle of Sherlock Holmes, I recommend this series by Carole Nelson Douglas. The series, like the Holmes tales, are mysteries to be solved - but this time from the perspective of heroine, Irene Adler (the one woman even Holmes admits had bested him), her husband and her friend & companion, Penelope (Nell).

    13. I gotta confess I'm not really a fan of this series. I wasn't madly in love with the first one, but I was hoping the second would improve. Even though I wasn't expecting a lot, I don't felt that it did. The idea has such potential, but the characters are poorly written and difficult to appreciate. Which is tragic, because it could be amazing. I guess that's really my problem with this book, its an excellent concept that is horribly executed. Its always tragic when that happens.

    14. This was another fun female version of a Sherlock Holmes mystery, with disguises and plotting and amusing characters. For some reason, though, I didn't get as involved with the story as I did with the first one of the series. Oh well, it's still a good summer read.

    15. I enjoyed the characters, and their world and hope I get the chance to read the story again and/or to read more within the series.My Rating System:* couldn't finish, ** wouldn't recommend, *** would recommend, **** would read again, ***** have read again.

    16. Missed adding this one, review-wise, but it was delightful. Oddly enough, Holmes is almost beside the point.

    17. This one is not as fun as the first but still carries some of the texture of one of Doyle's stories fleshed out radically.

    18. I love the classic style these books are written in. This series fits so well with Sherlock Holmes. I cannot wait to start the next book.

    19. An acceptable mystery set in the world of Sherlock Holmes but focused on THE WOMAN's future after the events in "A Scandal in Bohemia."
