Amanda Quick, best-selling author of Regency-era romances, has won many awards for her works, including the New York Times best-selling Wicked Widow. Each work transports fans into a richly detailed world of intrigue and desire. There are now over 25 million copies of her books in print.
Besieged by gambling debts, a desperate gentleman purchases a diary as a tool for blackmail. But he does not live to carry out his plans. He is murdered, and the diary is stolen. Now Tobias March, discrete private investigator, has been hired to find the incriminating diary. Tobias is familiar with danger, but when his inquiries lead him to the beautiful entrepreneur Lavinia Lake, his emotions are sidetracked.
The attraction that grows between Tobias and Lavinia is framed in the sparkling dialog and wit that have attracted millions of fans to Amanda Quick's novels. Superbly narrated by Audie Awardª-winner Barbara Rosenblat, Slighty Shady is a delicious tale filled with sophistication and suspense, humor and passion.

THE TWO MAIN CHARACTERS DIALOGUE WAS GREAT. THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN TOBIAS AND LAVINIA REMINDS OF NICK AND NORA IN THE THIN MAN SET IN REGENCY ENGLAND.
AMANDA COULD MAKE THESE CHARACTER IN TO A SERIES. I LOVE THE NARRATOR AS WELL.
The story is classic Amanda Quick formula, so much so that JAK may have used a software program to assemble the parts.
BUT Barbara Rosenblat breathes enough life and fire into the story to make it a worthy listen.
I really enjoy Amanda Quick books and this was another good book by her. Story had a twist to it that I couldn't get. I Would recommend this book.
