CRYSTAL GARDENS

Editorial Review - Kirkus - Jane Doe

A psychic spinster meets her match in a dark, equally gifted stranger, in Quick's Ladies of Lantern Street series launch.

Eh. It's not Amanda Quick at her id-fic best, but it is Amanda Quick examining the tropes of romance novels and finding that society is pretty rotten to women underneath. She brings a sledgehammer ... Read full review

I'm beginning to really enjoy the paranormal romance books from Jayne Ann Krentz - I recently learned that she writes under several names and when it is a historical paranormal it is published under ... Read full review

It will be interesting to see where this series goes and how it ties into the other times and places. I kept thinking I should know the ladies running the Marsh and Flint agency. I know Marsh was in a ... Read full review
