Weekend Book Club--Garden of Lies by Amanda Quick

This week I read GARDEN OF LIES by Amanda Quick. As always, there is strong heroine, witty dialogue and a mystery at the heart of the story, which brings the hero and heroine together. Always original and entertaining, I thoroughly enjoyed Amanda Quick's latest book.


The Kern Secretarial Agency provides reliable professional services to its wealthy clientele, and Anne Clifton was one of the finest women in Ursula Kern’s employ. But Miss Clifton has met an untimely end—and Ursula is convinced it was not due to natural causes.

Archaeologist and adventurer Slater Roxton thinks Mrs. Kern is off her head to meddle in such dangerous business. Nevertheless, he seems sensible enough to Ursula, though she does find herself unnerved by his self-possession and unreadable green-gold eyes…

If this mysterious widowed beauty insists on stirring the pot, Slater intends to remain close by as they venture into the dark side of polite society. Together they must reveal the identity of a killer—and to achieve their goal they may need to reveal their deepest secrets to each other as well…
