"As this engaging effort demonstrates, Quick has the Regency murder-mystery mix down to a fine science." (Publishers Weekly)
"Quick...continues to be one of the best and brightest voices in the romance genre." (Booklist)
Delightful listen. The mystery was very nicely constructed. I loved the returning characters as well as a couple of new ones that were introduced. The story took some nice twists and turns and ended happily. The narrator does a great job of creating the characters. Worth the listen. I'm sorry the next Tobias and Lovina story hasn't been written yet.
Riviting, thoughful, passionate
Imogen since she portrayed a strong, principled, passionate and smart woman; very relatable even to our modern women.
Hey tone, expression and accent brings the book alive. I can easily imagine being in the Old English City and part of the Ton.
Memento Mori Men
I absolutely love Amanda Quick.... Was introduced at the Roanoke Public Library in 1995 and I've been a fan since. The books do come alive when narrated, especially in an English accent... Audible has blessed me since I now have unlimited access all the way in the Caribbean.
There are three books in this series once again the English accent made it for me, I enjoyed every word it left me wanting more of the pair i do hope there will be more on them, they are kinda family now
another outing with this engaging pair. I do wish Quick would make this her last macabre book for a while. the subject I was never very interesting.
I tremendously enjoy Amanda Quick's novels, they are engaging and fun. This is one of my favorite's, I enjoy Tobias & Lavinia's interactions. However, the English accent of the narrator was forced and consequently she overly enunciated each and every word which was very distracting to the story. A real shame...
"Very unrealistic historical mystery/romance."
This started quite well, but I soon got bored with it.
