Dangerous by Amanda Quick

I read Dangerous by Amanda Quick and other books by her as a teenager. Now that I’m on holiday I’ve decided to take a break a few days and read some light books, before going back to serious subjects. So, there will be some regency books reviewed here in the next couple of weeks or so.

Dangerous by Amanda Quick

This is the story of Prudence Merryweather and Sebastian, Earl of Angelstone. She is 25 and comes from the countryside, but has a fascinating hobby, to search for ghosts. He is, obviously, very rich, and he too has a very fascinating hobby, to solve mysteries. They get involved in a complicated search for a murderer.

While the romantic part of the book is as expected, the murder mystery part is really fun. I’ve enjoyed this book now as much as I did a “few” years ago, when I was a teenager. At one point in the story a ghost appears, but I think it adds to the story. I would recommend this book if you like light romantic books.

  • This sounds like the type of book I also enjoyed reading as a teenager. (along with more serious historical fiction) It’s available through my library app, so I’ve tagged it.

    I think I’m going to read a Georgette Heyer Regency Romance sometime in the near future. You’ve reviewed some of hers, I believe, and another blog I follow has recently mentioned her novels. I think it would be a nice change of pace.

    • I haven’t read Georgette Heyer, but I wanted to for a while now. I felt the need for some escapism now, especially as I’m waiting for the exams results.

      • Hmmm… well I’m not sure who originally recommended her books to me, but the one I have tagged at the library is Cotillion. I hope to include it in my July reading, if not at the end of this month.
