Affair introduces Charlotte Arkendale, an industrious young woman who provides a very special service. Wealthy women hire her to check the qualifications of their suitors. When one of Charlotte’s loveliest clients is murdered, she hires the darkly handsome Baxter St. Ives to be her assistant and bodyguard. But as they pool their powers of deduction and begin to investigate the mysterious circumstances surrounding the murder, they also uncover the force of a powerful, and mutual, chemistry. Liberally laced with passion, the intrigue swirls, and the plot thickens around Charlotte and her handsome colleague.

Hand knitting and crochet are my hobbies in retirement, listening to books makes the time and the stitches fly by!
I have read and listened to a great number of Amanda Quck's offerings, and this one is so different from the others that it was like a breath of fresh air. Not to say I don't enjoy all of her books, I do, but this one is so different! Yes, I would recommend it to anyone who wants a good listen.
A comparison does not come to mind, this book takes all of the cliché of romance novels, and turns them into great entertainment. So I guess the whole thing is that there is no comparison in my library!
I have just recently listened to Wicked Widow by Amanda Quick also done by Ms Rosenblat. She is a marvelous reader, and lends more dimension to the characters of the book. I am looking forward to getting more of her readings in the near future.
Yes! I have a terrible time putting the iPod down and getting about other things when I start a book, and this one was no exception. It was marvelous!
The wit in this book was wonderful. The dissertation of the old butler on the scream in the laboratory had me giggling at odd moments for the rest of the day!
