Plagued by rumours that she poisoned her fiance, Lucinda Bromley manages to live on the fringes of polite society, tending her beloved plants - and occasionally consulting on a murder investigation. For the notorious botanist possesses a unique talent: she can detect almost any type of poison. But the death of a lord has shaken Lucinda to her core. At the murder scene, she picks up traces of a poison containing a very rare species of fern - stolen from her conservatory just last month. To keep her name out of the investigation, and to find the murderer, Lucinda hires fellow Arcane Society member, Caleb Jones. As a nearly overwhelming desire blooms between them, they are drawn into a deadly conspiracy that can be traced to the early days of the Arcane Society - and to a legacy of madness that could plunge Caleb into the depths of his own tortured soul...

    <<完美的毒藥>>是"奧密學會"系列第六集,跟第一集<<第六感魅惑>>的時代背景相同,本集男主角鐘凱勒是<<第六感魅惑>>男主角鐘嘉磊的堂弟。

    這一集的故事依舊纏繞著"神秘配方"、"對奧密學會的陰謀"兩大主題打轉。原本我以為"完美的毒藥"指的是從女主角被偷的植物,進一步提煉而成的藥品,沒想到卻另有涵義,不得不說後者更符合"完美的毒藥"一詞,也虧作者想出這樣的死法,真的很獨特。

    <<完美的毒藥>>是"奧密學會"系列第六集,跟第一集<<第六感魅惑>>的時代背景相同,本集男主角鐘凱勒是<<第六感魅惑>>男主角鐘嘉磊的堂弟。

    這一集的故事依舊纏繞著"神秘配方"、"對奧密學會的陰謀"兩大主題打轉。原本我以為"完美的毒藥"指的是從女主角被偷的植物,進一步提煉而成的藥品,沒想到卻另有涵義,不得不說後者更符合"完美的毒藥"一詞,也虧作者想出這樣的死法,真的很獨特。

    最後,我對新出場的"翡翠騎士團"很好奇,就不知道其他作品裡是否有進一步的交代。

    ps:我先前一直對"雙鐘社"一詞的由來很感興趣,沒想到誤打誤撞從這一本看到解答,真是意外的驚喜。

    西方的言情小說感覺跟我們好不一樣喔...
    我們可以很直接的判斷這就是言情小說...
    可西方的像一般小說...讀了內容之後才會覺得...
    那某方面的描述並未比東方深入...

    珍.安.克蘭茲的女主角一向都是那麼聰明,有主見,不管是現在或古代都是如此,這也是她的書可以那麼迷人,當然男主角也是勇敢,負責任,真的是所謂的"英雄",這本系列書"心靈能力"我不是很懂,感覺其實每個人都有那種能力,只是深淺和有無發揮而已,呵~她的現代版我都還沒看呢!改天有時間一定要看看!

    與其說很喜歡這本書,還不如說因為看這個作者的書已經習慣了。

    The best part about this series for me is that the plot does not revolve around a huge misunderstanding between the romantic interests. They are still romances, but the tension in the storyline is usually about a mystery, not the relationship.
