Gentle Reader, It could have been a scene from one of my novels. As a rule, respectable ladies do not accept calls from Mysterious Gentlemen on business of the most grave importance - but I confess that I was possessed of a lively curiosity. The past three years had been so determinedly dull, I hoped Mr. Adam Hardesty would offer a tiny respite from it. Indeed, upon first glance, Mr. Hardesty had such a formidable, thrilling presence, he quickly became the model for the villain in the sensation novel I was currently writing. Imagine my shock and distress then, when Mr. Hardesty accused me of being party to a plot of murder, blackmail, and general villainy! I knew nothing of such occurrences, and proclaimed my innocence. Unfortunately, Mr. Hardesty left unconvinced, and I had an uneasy feeling over what his search would uncover. You see, Gentle Reader, though I live a most uneventful life now, my past contained a Great Scandal that would be ruinous if resurrected. To protect my secrets from Mr. Hardesty’s investigation, I concluded that I would need to conduct an inquiry of my own, and if that meant sharing my findings with Mr. Hardesty, so be it. And my course of action had nothing whatsoever to do with the illicit, passionate feelings that he aroused in me - feelings that propriety would definitely frown upon... Yours most sincerely, Caroline Fordyce Download and start listening now!

    " More delicious popcorn reading from Amanda Quick. Always a delight. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shantina | 2/8/2014

    " One of my favorite authors. Read this about 4-5 years ago. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mirela | 2/3/2014

    " Easy to read. I would recommend it to read over the weekend, when you want to rest and not think to much "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Megan | 1/31/2014

    " It was good! Wonderful characters, and I didn't even suspect the villain till the very end! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Judith | 1/18/2014

    " I'm sorry to all the fans of this author, but I've read a lot of romance novels, and this is near the bottom of my list. This is a very boring book, and the writing is pretty bad. The romance is as passionate as watching the grass grow. Just to sum it up, the book is so dry and not interesting that I skipped most parts. Dry Dry DRY! I give it 2 stars because I'm sure with a lot of concentration, the book is bearable, but I just really didn't like it. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sharal Hunter | 1/15/2014

    " My reading preferences seem to be drifting away from historical romances as this book didn't appeal to me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erica | 1/11/2014

    " Another fun historical fiction book by Amanda Quick. Never going to be a literary classic but it is great mind candy! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Steven | 12/18/2013

    " Another great one from Amanda Quick. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Meredith | 12/7/2013

    " This was a fun mystery, well-written and funny. I enjoyed the banter between the characters, the Victorian setting and the little details about mesmerism. There was a perfect combination of romance and mystery! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elisa | 12/5/2013

    " Cute story! I like Adam's family and also Caroline's Aunt Milly, who makes me think of Betty White. And I always like stories about psychics and mediums. Very good! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rach | 11/28/2013

    " It was quite thrilling and exciting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sharon | 11/28/2013

    " This is the first book I have read written by this author. It was a very enjoyable book and easy reading. I did get caught up in the who-done-it part of the book, which for me, was the best part. The romance was just the side line. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ellen | 11/7/2013

    " Caroline Fordyce & Mr Hardesty "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 B | 2/6/2013

    " Interesting premise, but I'm not buying it. I don't believe that young women in that time period think and do the things this chick thought and did--not without explanations or extenuating circumstances. But I should learn, because I have this same revelation every time I try Amanda Q. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Heidi | 11/4/2012

    " Not my favorite... quick read with interesting premise... Told too much rather than shown so several story lines felt more rushed or more contrived (albeit more than usual)! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brianna | 10/4/2012

    " Great book. Romance, Mystery, and Murder into one. I adore this book. i will continue to re-read it again and again. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ann | 7/25/2012

    " Loved it! Great story, wonderful characters, great writing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 AzuresHeart | 6/26/2012

    " It took a while to get through this one. No fault of the book but it was just not a page turner and the romance was a bit lukewarm. Entertaining but not really memorable. But it won't stop me from reading more of AQ! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jan | 6/19/2012

    " George Orwell's lower upper middle class than high society. Nice glimpses of the psychic fad and how it existed. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barbara | 3/21/2012

    " For once I had no idea whatsoever who finally was identified as the villain (which is fine with me!). I clearly need to take a break in reading AQ books because the inclusion of "mesmerism" as a major plot device does get to be a little much after three in a row. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jae | 3/17/2012

    " It started off rather brilliantly, very mysterious indeed. But towards the middle the Hero just became very boring and unfeeling. Even the love scenes were loveless. Towards the end, I just skimmed through. Waste of time. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 ♆ BookAddict ~ La Crimson Femme | 11/2/2011

    " eh, not very memorable. This is a story I barely remember. So I only give it an okay. Not one I will be re-reading. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Toni | 4/24/2011

    " Felt like I'd read it before.. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Molly | 3/27/2011

    " One of my favorite historicals ever. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sigmone | 3/5/2011

    " Like all Amanda Quick's books, this was interesting and intriguing, with a nice twist at the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barbara | 2/26/2011

    " For once I had no idea whatsoever who finally was identified as the villain (which is fine with me!). I clearly need to take a break in reading AQ books because the inclusion of "mesmerism" as a major plot device does get to be a little much after three in a row. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathryn | 2/3/2011

    " Victorian murder mystery romance novel – psychic mediums murdered. Read it quickly, short novel. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Hannah the Blonde | 12/19/2010

    " Sometimes you say to yourself, I'm going to eat cake frosting for dinner. You know you shouldn't. Yes, it is technically food. But you won't gain anything from it. It tastes good at the time, but you regret it later.

    That's the best way to describe my reading experience. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Loraine | 12/11/2010

    " I really enjoyed this book so much so I will be reading anything I can get from Amanda Quick . this book is filled with romance and characters that are also very funny and lovable this is a great romantic mystery with lots of atmosphere and mystery "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carrie | 7/17/2010

    " Fun and fluffy! Just what I needed to distract me from a week of introspection and stretching personally. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rene | 6/25/2010

    " THIS IS A WONDERFULLY WRITTEN ROMANCE NOVEL. THIS NOVEL HAS MANY TWISTS AND TURNS THAT ARE UNBELIEVABLE. JUST WHEN YOU THINK WHO THE VILLAN IS-IT TURNS OUT TO BE SOMEONE ELSE. ONCE I STARTED THIS BOOK I COULDN'T PUT IT DOWN. A MUST READ. "
