Crystal Gardens

Crystal Gardens (Ladies of Lantern Street Series #1) by Amanda Quick, Jayne Ann Krentz

Published 04/24/12

Welcome to the sensational new series by Amanda Quick, where the lives of the Victorian gentry are filled with secrets – and secret powers..

Evangeline Ames has rented a country cottage far from the London streets where she was recently attacked. Fascinated by the paranormal energy of nearby Crystal Gardens, she finds pleasure in sneaking past the wall to explore the grounds. And when her life is threatened again, she instinctively goes to the gardens for safety.

Lucas Sebastian has never been one to ignore a lady in danger, even if she is trespassing on his property. Quickly disposing of her would-be assassin, he insists they keep the matter private. There are rumours enough already, about treasure buried under his garden, and occult botanical experiments performed by his uncle – who died of mysterious causes.

With Evangeline’s skill for detection, and Lucas’s sense of the criminal mind, they soon discover that they have a common enemy. And as the energy emanating from Crystal Gardens intensifies, they realize that to survive they must unearth what has been buried for too long… (from Goodreads)

I LOVE Jayne Ann Krentz/Amanda Quick/Jayne Castle (yes they are all the same wonderful author!). She is one of my favorite authors and I always look forward to her books. This one sounds so yummy and I cannot wait to get my hands on it!

    This one sounds very exciting! I’ve read and enjoyed several books by Jayne Ann Krentz, but have yet to read one of her Amanda Quick novels. Time to rectify that!

    Thanks for sharing…and for visiting my blog.

    Any favourite author of yours is an author I really need to read something by soon! And this book DOES sound yummy in that cool Victorian way, which is one way that I love completely because of my wish that wearing dresses every day could be normal in high school LOL x)

    But aside from my randomness, really awesome pick for your WOW this week, Dani! 😉

    This sounds really good and I have not read a book by this author in awhile. I just got behind on the Arcane society and kind of gave up, but since this is the beginning of a new series I believe I will have to jump right back in. I always loved her writing before. Thanks for stopping by my blog.
