My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This book is perfect for the fans of Amanda Quick but not so perfect for other readers. I mean most are surely going to be bored I guess. There’s a mystery element in the story which has been done well but the romance part of it was more abrupt and had no solid development. Being a fan of her works, i thoroughly enjoyed reading ‘Til Death Do Us Part.
Calista and Trent are again very unusual and quirky characters which has been kind of a trademark for Amanda Quick’s books. There’s something really unique about the way the author writes that one can be fairly sure of what’s coming in the plot. The wit and dry humor that is laced throughout the story made for some enjoyable reading and loved all the supporting characters too.

Calista Langley operates an exclusive “introduction” agency in Victorian London, catering to respectable ladies and gentlemen who find themselves alone in the world. But now, a dangerously obsessed individual has begun sending her trinkets and gifts suitable only for those in deepest mourning—a black mirror, a funeral wreath, a ring set with black jet stone. Each is engraved with her initials.
Desperate for help and fearing that the police will be of no assistance, Calista turns to Trent Hastings, a reclusive author of popular crime novels. Believing that Calista may be taking advantage of his lonely sister, who has become one of her clients, Trent doesn’t trust her. Scarred by his past, he’s learned to keep his emotions at bay, even as an instant attraction threatens his resolve.
But as Trent and Calista comb through files of rejected clients in hopes of identifying her tormentor, it becomes clear that the danger may be coming from Calista’s own secret past—and that only her death will satisfy the stalker…
