Good read. Interesting idea for the time period. I like that the characters are average in appearance but see in each other things that others do not. A historical mystery with just enough sexy scenes without an over focusing on them.

This is another of Amanda Quick's light, sexy, historical romantic suspense novels. It is a quick, light, fun read that lives up to Quick's usual combination of a strong, intelligent, independent female protagonist and a dark and dangerous, apparently hard hearted male lead who, layer by laryr, revealed a heart of gold.

At times I wonder if Charlotte was aware of her effect on Baxter! Poor Baxter! The storyline was good and so was the secondary charachters.

This Regency Romance features Miss Charlotte Arkendale who was betrayed by her stepfather and forced to make her way alone in London with her 14 year old sister. She creates a business for herself - looking into the affairs of potential husbands for spinsters and widows who have recently come into money to ensure that the men are worthy of marriage. She wants to save them from the fate of her own mother's terrible match with her stepfather. When one of Charlotte's clients, Miss Drusilla Heskett, is killed, Charlotte feels that she must investigate the murder to ensure that the murderer was not one of the suitors that Charlotte had advised her to reject. Baxter St. Ives is also investigating Miss Heskett's murder - and Charlotte is his prime suspect. I really enjoyed this light romantic murder mystery. Charlotte is a heroine with a lot of backbone and almost no fear.
