Plagued by rumours that she poisoned her fiancé, Lucinda Bromley lives on the fringes of polite society, tending her beloved plants - and occasionally consulting on a murder investigation.
But the death of a lord has shaken Lucinda to her core. At the murder scene, she picks up traces of a poison containing a very rare species of fern - stolen from her conservatory just last month. To keep her name out of it, and to find the murderer, Lucinda hires fellow Arcane Society member, Caleb Jones.
As desire blooms between them, they are drawn into a deadly conspiracy that can be traced to the early days of the society - and to a legacy of madness that could plunge Caleb into the depths of his own tortured soul...

A short time into this book I had to give up. I couldn’t believe what I was hearing. With every help from the narrator it sounded like a not very funny Monty Python sketch.

hard to get in to
This was a really hard audio book to get in to, in fact I never really did. The narrator?s voice is like a drone and I found that it was easy to blank out and ignore unless I really concentrated. This was a shame as from the blurb I thought I would really enjoy it.

Very entertaining. Love this author 's work.
Second in the Victorian Arcane society series. Unfortunately the first is not available in audio book.
My favourite Amanda Quick story
Where does The Perfect Poison rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
Maybe top 20? It's a fluff romance after all. It'd made my list due to the detective story in it. Also, Patience Tomlinson is the reader. Some of the female romance reader just can't do male voices. Her voices are precise, narrative voice is neutral and crisp, different from character's voices and doesn't 'bleed' through.
What did you like best about this story?
Patience Tomlinson's performance. I got it because she's the reader. Oh, and the main female character has a garden and wears spectacles and is a bad ass of her own right. Old fashion pepper spray anyone?
Have you listened to any of Patience Tomlinson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Yes! Excellent as always.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
Would you die for a fern?
Any additional comments?
I'd purchase more Amanda Quick if Tomlinson performs them.
