Summary

Calista Langley operates an exclusive "introduction" agency in Victorian London, catering to respectable ladies and gentlemen who find themselves alone in the world. But now a dangerously obsessed individual has begun sending her trinkets and gifts suitable only for those in deepest mourning - a black mirror, a funeral wreath, a ring set with black jet stone. Each is engraved with her initials.

Desperate for help and fearing that the police will be of no assistance, Calista turns to Trent Hastings, a reclusive author of popular crime novels. Believing that Calista may be taking advantage of his lonely sister, who has become one of her clients, Trent doesn't trust her. Scarred by his past, he's learned to keep his emotions at bay, even as an instant attraction threatens his resolve. But as Trent and Calista comb through files of rejected clients in hopes of identifying her tormentor, it becomes clear that the danger may be coming from Calista's own secret past - and that only her death will satisfy the stalker....

Narration was Just Horrible

Louise Jane Underwood makes the female characters sound like children or idiots and the men Ug. I do not understand why Recorded Books has continued to have her record Jane Ann Krentz aka Amanda Quick's books. They have even had her re-record other books done by excellent readers such as Michael Page and Anne Flosnik. I actually made myself listen to this book, but it was an absolute hardship. I am sure Ms. Underwood is a good reader for other venues but this is not one. It made me hate the story. I would not recommend this book due to the narration. Yuck! There are so many wonderful readers out there. I will not be buying any Amanda Quick audio books read by this narrator. The mechanical voices on my ipod are better.This is just not one of Jane's better stories.

Worst narration ever!

This was the most annoying narration I have ever heard. Have always looked forward to the the latest from Amanda Quick. Started the book and realized this would be a struggle. The narrator made such a mockery of the characters I could not follow the story. Her characters are always strong independent women. The narrator made them into screeching half wits. If I can get those voices out of my head I may order the Kindle version

Terrible narration makes a mediocre story worse

I couldn't get through more than 20 minutes of listening to this reader -- would not recommend this at all.

A screeching owl could have been a better narrator

Would you try another book from Amanda Quick and/or Louise Jane Underwood?

The story was fine but I would recommend reading this one instead of listening. The shrieking was so distracting. It detracted from the story. I would avoid this narrator unless maybe she was reading a children's book or something.

Would you recommend 'Til Death Do Us Part to your friends? Why or why not?

As a book, yes. A better story some some of Amanda Quick's other recent works.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Her voice was almost painful to listen to at times. It definitely made the characters less likable.

Did 'Til Death Do Us Part inspire you to do anything?

Pay more attention to reviews about the narrators.

Enjoyed Immensely

Really was excited to get the newest Amanda Quick book. So enjoyable and the narrator was spot on. Some people complain that Ms Quick's books fit a pattern maybe a little added here and there but that is her style in her historical books. I really enjoy reading and listening to her stories. But to each his own.

Avoid this narrator.

I have all the Jayne Anne Krentz and alias books and love most of them except for anything read by Louise Jane Underwood. She seems to think she must yell to do a male voice.

Amanda Quick- Always a delight

Plot had unexpected twists, nicely done. Always enjoy Ms Quicks historical novels.
Narrator was not able to change "voices" as well most.

Excellent Who Done It Ending

I’m a huge fan of Amanda Quick’s historical mysteries. My biggest dislikes is that there is rarely sequels to her novels. In this book just when you think you’ve nailed down at least the main suspects, Ms. Quick throws you for a loop. I really like that she never leaves you says “uh?” at the end.
I gave this book 5 stars in Overall because her two main character Calista and Trent are pretty well rounded characters, with the supporting characters of Eudora and Andrew their siblings who are constantly the catalyst for the reader getting a peek at Calista and Trent’s past. I also felt excited to get back to the book whenever I could.
I gave the book 5 stars in performance because Louise Jane Underwood does a superb job of making each character voice distinct as well as keeping the level of tense throughout the book at the right intensity, making me want to return to the book.
Lastly I would recommend this book mostly to my girlfriends who enjoy period mysteries.

Really enjoyed this twist.

I love Amanda Quick from the first time I read Mystique and they keep getting better. I did like her change from the norm in making the known villain into a somewhat victim himself.
