Summary

While investigating a suspicious death, private-inquiry agent Ambrose Wells finds himself on the grounds of Aldwick Castle - and in the midst of utter chaos. The ramshackle castle is in flames - and a beautiful woman and four young girls are taking flight on horseback. It turns out that the strong-minded Miss Concordia Glade and her four bright students are on the run from a notorious London crime lord who'll stop at nothing to destroy them. Now their only hope is Ambrose, a confirmed loner with more than his share of secrets - and more than his share of desire for the unconventional teacher. And as Ambrose and Concordia risk everything to bring down a criminal mastermind, they will also be forced to battle something even greater: the steamy passion that threatens their hard-won independence....

Good Balance

This is a delightful story, in spite of being based on a truly dark time for the poor and unprotected children of the Victorian era. These particular orphans and their teacher manage to turn glittering Society and its dark counterpart on its head.

The teacher, Concordia, is in the mold of the best of Amanda Quick's characters. She is smart, quirky, and cheerfully keeps moving forward no matter how badly things get.

The narrator reads most of her characters with a shrill voice. Nevertheless the listener has no trouble knowing who is speaking.

Even though this book has been in print/audio for a good while, it is still fresh and compelling.

Lie by Moonlight

Not my favorite sub-genre but I quite enjoyed the mystery of this. And how helpful the teacher Concordia was and what she did for her charges.

The girls were funny and so sweet they only wanted what was best for their teacher.

The romance comes from Ambrose who not only helps the teacher and gets the girls to safety. But who is determined to solve the mystery surrounding the teacher and her charges to find out why they were fleeing from the ‘orphan school.’
Overall I liked the story and who Ambrose and Concordia became lovers.

I liked the narration the accent was perfect for this book. I very much enjoyed it.

*You don't have to like my review but its 100% my opinion, and I am allowed to have it.*

Wonderful Story

Another great story from Amanda Quick. Very entertaining and witty. I was fast-paced but still you understood the layout of the book.

What fun!

How enlightening the clear delineation of treatment of women and children of poverty ! Too bad this could not have been a solution for more. But, admire the treatise thinking of Amanda Quick in her story.

Delightful characters, romance, and mystery!

If you could sum up Lie by Moonlight in three words, what would they be?

Deep characters, amusing tension, and interesting mystery.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Concordia Glade -- smart, brave, strong, and dedicated to her students at possible expense to herself. Willing to break convention to act on her principals.

Which character – as performed by Louise Jane Underwood – was your favorite?

Ambrose Wells. Wonderful male voice done by woman. Although all of the voices were terrific!!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, but circumstances intervened, so I had to break it up.

Any additional comments?

One of my favorites of Jayne's Victorian romances. Very interesting characters, and a good mystery without being overly dark. Plus, the addition of teenagers who catch the adults in consistencies and call out romance when they see it was really fun!

Another good one

I love these stories. They combine romance with mystery. I don't care for most plan romances but these add humor and mystery into the story making them much more interesting.
