Book Review: 'Til Death Do Us Part by Amanda Quick

Death, suspense, and romance combine to create an intriguing mystery story about triumph over tragedy, in which two scorned lovers are presented with an opportunity to experience true love.

Calista Langley resigned herself to helping others find companionship or romantic connections, after her former lover Nestor Kettering ended their engagement and married a more endowed woman.  Suddenly, Kettering resurfaces to win her affections again and end his loveless marriage.  At the same time, Langley receives tokens of mourning left by an unknown intruder.  Desperate to save her life, Langley reluctantly accepts the services of renowned novelist Trent Hastings, whose crime-solving skills acquired from writing detective stories may be of assistance.  Together, Langley and Hastings risk danger in the streets of London to uncover her mysterious stalker.  Meanwhile, Langley the growing independence of her brother Andrew, and Hastings tries to forgive himself for his past mistakes, along with the woman who broke his heart.

One theme is that, even after emotional pain, romantic longings linger like glowing embers, ready to be reignited.  Quick also educates readers on Victorian social customs, particularly those associated with funerals, and reveals how those rules got broken.
