Publisher's Summary

The New York Times best-selling 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.

Miserable narration

What would have made Garden of Lies better?

The narrator makes the heroine sound like a whiny teenager. It's so bad that her accent sounds like pseudo English. Do the authors ever screen the narrators...someone should have! I honestly don't think I will be able to finish this book with the "fingernails on a blackboard" voice. I'm very, very disappointed


Has Garden of Lies turned you off from other books in this genre?

I will certainly screen any of the authors other books much more carefully. I am a strong fan of these series, but not if done by this narrator.


Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Louise Jane Underwood?

Anyone


What character would you cut from Garden of Lies?

The narrator


Any additional comments?

narration overly dramatic

My apologies to Ms Quick, I usually love her stories but this narration really made it awful. Ms Underwood read the entire text as if it were a dramatic declaration!!!!!!!
