darkness & desire in victorian england.......another great "quick" book.
Amanda Quick at her best... a murder mystery to be solved, a dangerous man (is he the villain or the hero?) and the lady herself, a lovely rose waiting to be plucked (once you look past her advanced age of 27 and her spectacles). Great Read!!
Mrs. Caroline Fordyce has a secret to keep. She lives with her two aunts and makes her living writing thrilling serial novels for one of the London newspapers. Unfortunately, while doing research into for her next novel about spiritualists which are all the rage in Victorian London, the medium with whom she has consulted is murdered ... and the man looking into the murder thinks that Mrs. Fordyce is a suspect. While she knows that she didn't kill the medium, she is afraid that her secret will come out during the investigation, so she decides to do some investigating of her own. This was a good beach read!
Strong, sassy women...unconventional and flawed...
powerful, determined men... can't help but fall for the women
the usual (and much loved) theme of Amanda Quick's books! One of my favorite authors since the 80's...I have everyone of her books and wait eagerly for her new releases!
A delightful book, psychics, murder, mystery and love all tied up in a great afternoon read:)
