Book: Slightly Shady
Series: Lavinia Lake & Tobias March #1
Author: Amanda QuickFrom the moment the stranger burst into her antiquities shop in Rome, Lavinia Lake knew he was nothing but trouble. He said he was in pursuit of a killer. He swore he was only trying to save her. Yet Lavinia was convinced that Mr. Tobias March was bent instead on destroying her. When the self-described spy hustled her all the way back to England, Lavinia vowed she would find a way to repay him in full. She never dreamed that Mr. March had in fact been telling the truth, that he had been hired to track down a powerful villain. And just as his investigation was heating up, he found it complicated by the most ungovernable, exasperating-and slightly shady-woman he had ever met. Lavinia most certainly never dreamed they would meet again, forced into partnership under shocking circumstances-or that their fiery disputes would spark a sizzling desire as overwhelming as the danger they faced....-Goodreads
Review: A historical mystery with a dash of romance? Yes please! I really enjoyed this book by Amanda Quick. I read a lot of books by her in college. I also loved that this wasn't a typical 'young virgin seduced by a rake' type of book. Lavinia and March are well developed. Can't wait for the next one!
