Blurb Reveal: GARDEN OF LIES by Amanda Quick

Fans of mystery and historical romance, rejoice! We have a blurb for the next Amanda Quick (aka Jayne Ann Krentz) novel, Garden of Lies (release date April 21, 2015).

The New York Times bestselling author of Otherwise Engaged and The Mystery Woman presents an all-new novel of intrigue and murder set against the backdrop of Victorian London…

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…

I’ve had a chance to see a proof of the cover for Garden of Lies, and while I think it’s the a perfect mystery/romance cover with moonlight, manor, and maze, it’s not approved for distribution and I can’t share it just yet since there may be changes. But, I really, really like the cover that I saw and I’m already dreaming about putting it on my bookshelf, so I hoped they don’t change too much.

Anyway, stay tuned for the reveal at a later date!
