And as the mystery grows ever deeper and the danger circles ever closer, they must guard not only their secrets but their lives....

Classic Amanda Quick

Setting: London, England Late Victorian period
Genre: Romance/Mystery
Caroline Fordyce is the author of sensational novels published in serial form in the newspaper. But she is a woman with a scandal in her past. Adam Hardesty confronts Caroline, thinking she was somehow involved with the murder of a psychic medium and the theft of a diary that holds many of the secrets of his life. They decide to join forces to look for the diary and find out who killed the psychic.
I have to say that I really did not like Caroline for about the first 1/3 - 1/2 of the novel. She is insecure and strident. Adam is pretty one dimensional as well. The plot is interesting - at least average.
Louisa Jane Underwood, while not my least favorite reader, still doesn’t land in the top 10. There isn’t quite enough differentiation among the characters. However, she does a good job with the male voice.
Overall, this was an okay listen.

My favorite book by Amanda Quick!

My favorite book by Amanda Quick! Caroline and Adam are two of her best characters, I think. She does a brilliant job of bringing the two very different, but complimentary, characters to life. I have read (and now listened) to the book many times and always enjoy coming back to the two of them and their adventures. I loved the narrator's performance and all of the different voices she created for the male and female characters and different British accents. All in all, the book is one of my favorites and the narration has only enhanced my enjoyment. If you enjoy romance and mystery, I highly recommend the book!

Don't like narrator.

story is reasonably entertaining. The narrator gave everyone irratating voices. At one point, I had to force myself to finish listening.
