Calista Langley operates an exclusive “introduction” agency in Victorian London, catering to respectable ladies and gentlemen who find themselves alone in the world. Calista’s clients are by referral only and she always has her brother Andrew investigate each member to insure no married or fortune hunters are allowed.
The brother of one of her clients, Trent Hastings, a reclusive author of popular crime novels, visits Calista to determine if this is a proper place for his sister. Trent discovers that Calista has been receiving memento mori trinket and offers his assistance in finding the culprit. Trent and Calista comb through her files of rejected clients in hopes of identifying her tormentor. Trent comes to believe that a murderer is stalking Calista.
I will say I was kept guessing who the real culprit and their motive was until the end. Amanda Quick has a wonderful way of letting the readers get to know her characters. The dialogue is witty, the romance is very believable and the investigation techniques used are very ingenious to the time period. I would highly recommend TIL DEATH DO US PART to anyone who likes historical romantic suspense. Trent and Calista are a wonderful couple and I hope they are included in future books.
