I came across Amanda Quick (Jayne Ann Krentz) Arcane series years ago as well as her Harmony series (Jayne Castle) and she became one of my must have ..Show More »authors under her various pseudonyms.
This is an Historical, Mystery, Paranormal, Fantasy romance
The Ladies of Lantern Street are private investigators, with the Flint & Marsh agency, who accomplish their tasks discretely for their clients by posing as Paid Companions, Governess's or in other guises. Each has a paranormal talent.
Beatrice Lockwood in her new profession with Flint & Marsh is hiding from her past after her previous employer was murdered.
Joshua North doesn't believe in the paranormal but has the reputation of being able to find things, is after Beatrice believing she is blackmailing his sister.
Unfortunately if you have read/listened to Amanda Quick's previous books you will feel this book contains reflections/echos of earlier stories, both from the Arcane Arc and various stand alone novels. Nightmare gas anyone, I could list many more such instances but it would spoil an enjoyable listen and reveal too much of the plot.
This is still well worth the listen and well worth the price (Audible version)
The narration by Justine Eyre, whilst not on a par with Anne Flosnik, Joyce Bean or Josephine Bailey does not totally ruin the listen
I would recommend this this book to all that like Historical paranormal fantasy and even those who, like male lead in the book, do not.
