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.

Amanda Quick books always satisfy. "'Til Death Do Us Part" is not exception.

Well written. A good plot with believable characters. Add in some surprising twists at the end and it all wraps up quite satisfactorily.

Amanda Quick also writes under her name (Jayne Ann Krentz) and pseudonym Jayne Castle. Look to titles by all three for enjoyable reads.

I always enjoy an Amanda Quick novel! This one is definitely mystery more than romance but it was an enjoyable quick read that followed her standard style.

This book was okay. I enjoyed the mystery, but the characters felt very textbook. There was nothing special about them; they felt like they could have come from any other Victorian-era book.

This is my second Amanda Quick novel, and I'm not sure how keen I am to read any more of her stories. They're so similar in tone, it almost feels like if you've read one, you've read them all.

I have read many books by Jayne, and I must say that the plot and overall tone of this particular book sounded very similar to her one of her previous novels. I still enjoyed it, but I think it would be interesting to change it up a bit and not have the same predictable characters (the damsel in distress and the masculine hero who helps save her/falls in love). I would recommend this to someone who hasn't read that much by this author, and who enjoys a romantic suspense novel. Overall, predictable but a great fast read.
