Under Miss Beatrice Lockwood's plain gray gown, a pistol waits at the ready. Beatrice is a paid companion on a secret mission and with a secret past and she must be prepared to fight for her life at any moment. Yet she is thrown off guard by the fierce-looking man who joins her in foiling a crime outside a fancy ball and who then disappears into the shadows, leaving only his card. Joshua Gage is a cipher in the shadows with a hypnotically calm voice and an ebony-and-steel cane.

Boring detective book by Amanda Quick. Worth skipping pages if you read it. Or not reading it at all.

Too many repetitions of the words, "paranormal energy", for my liking. Also too many repetitions of what has happened as characters fill each other in, but I as a reader know what has happened and don't need reminders...so kinda ho-hum in parts. An easy book to scan just to see what happens. Likable main characters who, of course, have an instant attraction to each other. Plot revolves around 2 men who want to revive a dead woman, their loved one, now floating in a salt solution for the last year. Really??

This is the second Ladies of the Lantern Street novels. This is Beatrice Lockwood's story. She and Joshua Gage find who is looking for her and who killed her boss. Parts are a bit dark but you know from the beginning that these two will get together. Fun read.

Does my gun fit into my belt? Is it because she is a bride and a bridesmade in one?
