    This is a very short novella, and from the author's notes inside was written for fans of the series so they could *witness* the birth of Malcolm and Suzanne's second child. There's a bit of a mystery for our pair to solve, naturally, but nothing earth shattering. If you're a die-hard fan of the series, go ahead and read it, but you aren't going to miss any pertinent plot points by skipping this one. Kindle copy obtained via library loan.

    3.5 stars As with everything I've read by Tracy Grant, this story is well written. If you're a fan of the Rannochs as I am, you will likely enjoy this story because it lets the reader be present for the birth of their child. There's a bit of a mystery woven into the plot, but it doesn't amount to much. The main joy with this story is getting to have a quick visit with characters that readers of Grant's other books, particularly The Paris Affair, will have grown to love.

If you're not familiar with the series, this would not be the best intro and I would recommend going back to the beginning or diving into one of the full-length novels.

    This is definitely a novella for those who are fans of the series, as it concerns the birth of the Rannoch's second child. The mystery isn't dire but still filled me with curiosity.

    At the risk of sounding cruel, this was unnecessary and frankly stupid. If there was a conversation about their secrets between Suzanne and Malcolm, I would have loved it, but all it was was the birth of their second child (their only child, as it is, since Malcolm isn't Colin's father) and some "mystery" involving nothing more or less.

    Having enjoyed the longer Rannoch mysteries, I turned to this novella. Although it has a clever twist at its resolution, this book is clearly part of a money-making series and does not advance the back stories of the main characters.

    A quick, well written adventure detailing the birth of Suzanne and Malcolm's daughter Jessica, very sweet.

    Being a novella means there isn't much depth of story. There is a mystery about the rock throwing, but it lacks any spark. This spoiler reveals the ending. (view spoiler)[ And it turns out to be a character that I don't remember hearing about at all prior to the revelation. I think that is bad writing. (hide spoiler)] The most significant addition to Rannoch history is the birth of Jessica but there is very little description of how they chose to have another child.

Other stories in the series give us far more about that. Really there is not much here worth the trouble. 1.5 stars and I feel like that's generous.

    Always a joy to read about Malcolm and Suzanne but the order of the series is frustrating 😩. I’m reading out of order and the author doesn’t have her site anymore. But I’m gong forward even though the story jumps here and there. 🔆

    Too short even to be a novella, and not interesting as a short story. A minor filler in the history of the protagonists. It was not expensive, but should have been free.

    This novella fills the time between Waterloo and the Berkeley Square Affair. Threats of revenge from an unknown enemy come sailing into the lives of the pregnant Suzanne and Malcolm, their friend Henri Rivaux, friends Harry and Cordelia Davenport, and even their footman Valentin.

    Great novella about the birth of Malcolm and Suzanne's baby, including a short but welldone mystery as they await the blessed event. High emotions help create suspense among our main characters, as well as a revelation about a minor character.

    Trivial, but readable for those interested in the series comes after The Paris Affair, gives a little further detail on what's going on in some characters' lives, but doesn't move the story along.

    A nice quick short read, overall it was just okay for me. However it was wonderful to see Malcolm there for the birth of Jessica.
