‘Til Death Do Us Part


‘Til Death Do Us Part
The author of the New York Times bestseller Garden of Lies returns to Victorian London in an all-new novel of deadly obsession.
 
Calista Langley operates an exclusive “introduction” agency in Victorian London, catering to respectable ladies and gentlemen who find themselves alone in the world. But now, a dangerously obsessed individual has begun sending her trinkets and gifts suitable only for those in deepest mourning—a black mirror, a funeral wreath, a ring set with black jet stone. Each is engraved with her initials.
 
Desperate for help and fearing that the police will be of no assistance, Calista turns to Trent Hastings, a reclusive author of popular crime novels. Believing that Calista may be taking advantage of his lonely sister, who has become one of her clients, Trent doesn’t trust her. Scarred by his past, he’s learned to keep his emotions at bay, even as an instant attraction threatens his resolve.
 
But as Trent and Calista comb through files of rejected clients in hopes of identifying her tormentor, it becomes clear that the danger may be coming from Calista’s own secret past—and that only her death will satisfy the stalker...

    I pre-ordered this book and it showed up on my kindle last night…..It’s of my genre, but it’s a Victorian, period piece that I don’t normally read……I ended up thoroughly enjoying it…….This novel by author, Amanda Quick turned out to be an excellent , twisted romance/ murder mystery………The story was intriguing and riveting page turner one I got started………It had a very scheming and disturbing elaborate plot……Great depiction of two strong willed, stubborn, opinionated characters, Calista and Trent Hastings who played well of each other…..Intertwined into a “sweet romance”……….I also loved the witty banter between the two of them at times…….The Prologue or opening of the book was unique and reminded me a little of the 1951 movie, ‘Stranger On A Train”…….It was a great set-up to the story………Two men unhappy with their rich wives make an offer to each other they can’t refuse………The author also gives you so many quirky, other characters that…

    ‘Til Death Do Us Part is deliciously atmospheric and oh so much fun to read. Amanda Quick has deftly blended romance, mystery, and Victorian London’s obsession with death and spiritualism into one captivating tale.I’ve been a fan of Ms. Quick’s work for years, and ‘Til Death Do Us Part is quite different in tone from her historical romances that I devoured in the ’90s. What remains the same are the characters at the heart of the tale: smart, unique people who don’t fit into the molds society would put them in. Calista Langley is a businesswoman ahead of her time. She runs an “introduction” agency, where intelligent, likeminded people can meet and form friendships and perhaps even find romance. Calista has made a good life for herself and her brother, but when someone begins to send her momento mori (items made for those in mourning) with her initials on them, she’s shaken. It’s clear someone is stalking Calista, but she doesn’t know why. Luckily for her, Calista has j…

    Not as good as her others of this genre. Not as original; various pieces are borrowed from her other books. The lead characters just aren’t as interesting as usual and their attraction to each other seems to not ring true. It’s an okay read, but unlike, say, the Lavinia Lake and Tobias March books, I won’t be reading this one again….

    Seemed to simply be new faces on an old story. Love everything she writes but this was not up to standard….

  5. Kate S

    I have read all of her book and always look forward to a new release. Not one of my favorites. Characters didn’t seem as developed as in other books and the descriptive quality of the setting and story were short and terse. Almost like a different style of writing….

  6. C. E. Field

    This is the same “story” plot that I’ve read from Amanda Quick for a while now. There are no surprises, not much fun, very little sex appeal, and heroes and heroines who are just blah. Last one for me….

    “She belonged to him.”FINAL DECISION: This book was good in many ways but didn’t live up to my expectations for an Amanda Quick book. The mystery so central to the story was just meh and I found to romance good, but not one that I’d want to reread.THE STORY: Calista Langley owns a Victorian matching agency where she introduces men and women looking for companionship. A stalker begins sending her gifts that creep her out because they are mourning gifts personalized for her. When Trent Hastings, author of a series of detective stories comes to her to complain about Calista involving his sister in her matching agency, the two strike sparks off one another and soon seem to be meeting all the time. Calista seeks Trent’s help in discovering who is stalking her.OPINION: This book had the setup to be a really good story with Trent’s initial mistrust of Calista and a creepy mystery. For me, however, everything about this story sort of petered out and by the end I was only mildly intereste…

    Not up to her usual standards, I have all her (Jayne Ann Krentz) books & love them so much that I frequently reread them. The people in this book seemed a little flat. Definitely not something I look forward rereading. With all of that being said, I will still be purchasing her next box because you can’t hit it out of the park every time…
