Concordia Glade has to set fire to the castle where her four schoolgirl charges are at risk in order to rescue them. However, their escape nearly goes wrong, until Ambrose Wells, reformed thief, appears on the scene for his own reasons.
Thus starts a series of events which include murders, disguises, romance and complex plots. The usual Amanda Quick hallmarks are there - fierce rather than handsome hero, strong women giving up their virginity at the drop of a hat, journeys in carriages in the fog. This book is set in the Victorian rather than Regency period, although this makes little difference to the overall feel of the book. We meet the Vanzagarian society again, with John Stoner (a young man in "I Thee Wed") as an old Vanza master.
This book was definitely a return to form after the rather disappointing Tobias March and Lavinia Lake series. No surprises in this book, it's standard fare, but well-written and gripping and fun too. Enjoy!

Concordia Glade is a teacher with a hidden past. She is sent to look after four girls and rapidly realises that they are in danger. This makes for an enjoyable romantic romp, with a likeable, very modern, heroine. Although the story isn't terribly believable, the book is well written and makes a good, easy read. I will be looking out for more books by the same author.

This is the third book in the Vanza series and I loved the story and the characters. The author has a way of weaving the lives of the characters together in a way that you cannot help but be drawn in. However, I was left mystified as to what exactly Vanza is! The impression you get is that it is some sort of martial art combining meditation and philosophy of life.

Book 1 - I Thee Wed, was not up to the authors usual standards but still enjoyable nonetheless.

Book 2 - The Wicked Widow picked up speed from the second novel and was absolutely terrific.

I do hope that there is a further book as I would love to know what happens to the new students of Vanza.

As an owner of all Amanda quick novels, I was really keen to buy this, so got it in hard back. That was 6 months ago and I have only now finished reading this.The characters are so predictable and do not engage me at all. Also the tradmark humour is missing. I have in the interim re read all her other books and really enjoyed them. This book has not gripped me at all. Hopefully thiswas an Amanda Quick blip, and her next book will be back to her usual high standard.

Format: Paperback
This is an interesting romance set "late in the reign of Queen Victoria" and it throws you into the story from the get-go. You first meet Concordia Glade and her young students as they are running away from the burning castle they've been staying in. This is also the moment that Ambrose Wells enters the story. He's investigating the castle and is a little put out that it's burning down but he offers to help Concordia and her four charges. The whys of their residence at the castle is interesting and the two main characters are quite well suited but their attitudes to sex are quite modern.

For it's type it's quite good, and I did enjoy the story and enjoyed the ride, it's only after I finished reading that I started having some reservations about some aspects of the story.
