SRP Book 5: Second Sight

Summer Reading Program - My Books

Second Sight by Amanda Quick (390 pages)
Genre: Historical paranormal romantic suspense (whew, that's a mouthful)
Rating: 3.8

Amanda Quick is one of the few romance writers I'll go out of my way to read. Her plots are actually interesting, and her characters are multi-faceted. I mean, it's still froth, but it's compelling froth. That said, I didn't think this one was one of her best. It was still fun, but she's starting to repeat herself a bit. And this one was late Victorian instead of Regency, but didn't really feel much different.

It also provoked a rant about how romance writers really need to get over the word "nubbin," but I'm not sure we really need to get into that.

Anyway, it's one of a loose series about the Arcane Society, which deals with paranormal secrets and psychic abilities and such. True to Quick's form, the main character is a forward-thinking spinster with various responsibilities that make her try to forge a career - as a photographer, in this case. She meets a mysterious man who she later finds out is rich and powerful. While falling in love, they find the bad guys, discover secrets, blah blah. You know the drill. But really, it's a fun light summer read.
