Ended up reading this twice... First time through I didn't know about "Slightly Shady" that introduced the characters. Second time was more interesting knowing what happened to bring the main characters together in the first place.
Fun read. Quick, too. And I don't mean just Amanda Quick.
The further adventures of Lavinia and Tobias (as started in Slightly Shady) ... Lavinia and Tobias, now lovers and business partners, are in search of a killer. Celeste, the wife of an old family friend of Lavnia's is murdered. To complicate matters, a priceless bracelet is also missing. Lavinia and Tobias figure that if they can find the bracelet, they will find the killer. Of course, they aren't the only ones searching for it. This was a charming, light read that made me chuckle. I especially like the lively interaction between Lavinia and Tobias.
Mesmerizing, delightful mix of mystery, sensuality, and the historical detail that makes Amanda Quick shuch a pleasure.
