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.
Til Death Do Us Part was an enjoyable read although I would have categorized the book under mystery and not romance. My reasons for that is the fact that our h/h felt emotionally disconnected from one another. There’s passion in between them but there’s no emotional reference, they only feel like they’re going through the motions instead of actually feeling what is going on between them. That doesn’t take away from the rest of the story but it does leave you feeling a little unfulfilled as their relationship continues. That’s the only thing that I wanted more out of the story about. The rest of the adventure, the problem solving, and discovery was interesting and fun.
