I was quite excited to see that Amanda Quick was coming out with a new book, and one that took place in the 1930s! I wasn’t expecting that setting as Jayne Ann Krentz set her Quick books in the Victorian era, while her JAK books are set in the modern era. I have to say that I love this new setting! It doesn’t seem like the 30s is much explored by authors and it was interesting to see this era through Quick’s writing.
I’m a fan of Amanda Quick’s; I always look forward to her next book release, and when I saw this book, I was intrigued, I have to admit.
I thought it was well done. It had the feeling of her other books, with the mystery and romance, but I liked that it was set in this new time period. It created a new element of surprise for me that was missing lately from her Victorian era books. This book felt more sinister, so points for that.
The romance felt the like a traditional Amanda Quick romance, so I there was no element of surprise there. It felt a tad rushed, but otherwise I enjoyed that aspect of the story.
Overall, I look forward to seeing where she will go with her 1930s era books!
