Short and Sweet Book Review #26 – The Waters of Eternal Youth by Donna Leon, ‘Till Death do us part by Amanda Quick
The Waters of Eternal Youth by Donna Leon
Once again Commissario Guido Brunetti is presented with a
mystery that looks like it will be impossible to solve. Fifteen years have passed since a teenage girl fell into a canal late at night. She was pulled out and revived but has brain damage. Her grandmother has always had questions about what really happened and now has asked Brunetti to see what he can find out. At first he gets no where but keeps digging. This is a wonder mix of current day affairs in Venice. Many things come to life as the book progresses. A very good addition to the series.
'Till Death Do Us Part by Amanda Quick
Historical Romantic Suspense
This is classic Amanda Quick. Calista Langley is a very strong woman who is on the shelf but making a very good living in a time when women did not work. Trent Hasting has been hurt in the past and tries to keep his attraction to Calista in check. When someone targets Calista Trent comes to the rescue and all of that attraction kicks in. Another fun romp set in Victorian England. A quick read that you will not want to put down.
