Louisa is hiding in plain sight as a dowdy widow. Her past is something that she's ashamed of and she holds out little hope for a happy future. Anthony Stalbridge is interested in her and their first real encounter is when he kisses her outside Elwin Hastings' bedroom while they're both attending a ball.

His reasons for being there are different to hers. She's investigating for a scandal sheet, while he's trying to find out whether his fiancee's death was truly a suicide. Both of them have an interest in Mr Hastings and they propose to join forces to bring him to justice.

With a lot of twists and turns this story brings the two characters together and is quite an amusing read. I enjoyed it immensely and look forward to more of the same.

Typical of the Amanda Quick book formula - lady of mystery meets man of mystery, followed by sex, danger and rescue - end with happily ever after. Seems to be missing the 'special something' her earlier books have (and the reason I started reading her books). It is still a good read - worth taking to the beach as you don't have to pay close attention to the plot. One major distraction has been the over use of the word 'that'. It has become so distracting, I found myself mentally rewriting the text just to avoid the word.
Still, I'll continue to read her books when in the mood for a light romantic-adventure.

I quite enjoyed this story. Louisa Bryce and Anthony Stalbridge come together investigating Edwin Hastings one as a journalist the other thinking he killed his late fiancee.

if she writes as AmandaQuick or as Jane Ann Krentz her books are always a joy to read.
