Book Description

6 Jan 2005
Adam Hardesty has a serious problem. The secrets of his past are in danger of being exposed, and in the course of investigating his would-be blackmailer, he discovers the dead body of a prominent psychic. To make matters worse, her house has been torn apart, and the diary containing Adam's secrets is missing. His only lead is a list of the psychic's last visitors. The most likely suspect is a woman named Mrs. Caroline Fordyce, whom he confronts in her parlour, only to discover an inconvenient attraction to the beautiful young widow. Alarmed by Adam's insinuations and questions, Caroline concludes that she must conduct her own investigation- if she can discover the true killer, Adam will have no reason to expose her connection to the dead psychic, which would cause a scandal she and her aunts could ill-afford. Besides, her life has been boringly uncomplicated for too long, and the exciting tension she feels around Adam presents a welcome alternative to her mundane daily routine. But as Caroline and Adam journey deeper into the shadowy world of psychics, mediums and con artists, they find that the only ones they can count on are each other.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quick is Back. 31 Mar 2005
By A Customer
As most regular readers of Amanda Quick (aka Jayne Anne Krentz) will know, recent historical romance books have been rather disappointing. The plots concentrated too heavily on not very interesting suspense angles, and the relationships seemed perfunctory and stilted. In the last Quick book I read (The Paid Companion) I was flicking through 'love-scenes' without a second look, feeling that I'd seen it all before.
But with this book, Quick is back on form. Her characters are well fleshed out and endearing, with the sparkling dialogue and believable relationships that made early works (like Scandal, Mistress and Rendezvous) so enjoyable. There is certainly a suspense angle here, but it's well controlled and never allowed to overwhelm the plot. In fact, it was quite interesting in itself. And the secondary characters, subplots and supernatural themes, while oft used by Quick, seemed somehow fresh and interesting in this book.
What was more, for the first time in a long time when reading a Quick novel, I felt really moved by the interactions between hero and heroine. There was some element of the familiar formula there, but it was outweighed by the ususual way that Quick chose to unfold the romance. There's a maturity in these two, and a lack of petty squabbling and tiresome alpha male antics, that took me completely by surprise.
For the last few years, I've been buying Quick novels in paperback, when I bought them at all. But if this book signifies a resurgence of the beloved style of yeats gone by, I may well be investing in hardbacks again in the future.

3.0 out of 5 stars More Mills and Boon than a gripping mystery 6 Mar 2014
By Jill K
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I was hoping to listen to a gritty mystery for the long drive between the South of France and England and was a bit disappointed to find that this book was more of a Victorian bodice ripper. It could have been two discs shorter as there was alot of repetition and long-winded unnecessary descriptions. However, saying that, it passed the time and I did finish it which is more than I can say for some books that I have bought.

I enjoy crime stories whether set in the past , present or future. I find the Clancy novels most entertaining, but also enjoy the other authors.

1.0 out of 5 stars Mills and Boon in disguise 26 Aug 2008
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I found this book to be Mills and Boon masquerading as something darker and more mysterious.

Anyone who does not want their shadowy intrigue dowsed heavy-handedly with brooding masculinity and heaving bosoms should steer well clear.
