    • Abstract:
      Summary: When Hollywood moguls and stars want privacy, they head to an idyllic small town on the coast, where the exclusive Burning Cove Hotel caters to their every need. It's where reporter Irene Glasson finds herself staring down at a beautiful actress at the bottom of a pool.The dead woman had a red-hot secret about up-and-coming leading man Nick Tremayne, a scoop that Irene couldn't resist—especially since she's just a rookie at a third-rate gossip rag. But now Irene's investigation into the drowning threatens to tear down the wall of illusion that is so deftly built around the famous actor, and there are powerful men willing to do anything to protect their investment. Seeking the truth, Irene finds herself drawn to a master of deception. Oliver Ward was once a world-famous magician—until he was mysteriously injured during his last performance. Now the owner of the Burning Cove Hotel, he can't let scandal threaten his livelihood, even if it means trusting Irene, a woman who seems to have appeared in Los Angeles out of nowhere four months ago.With Oliver's help, Irene soon learns that the glamorous paradise of Burning Cove hides dark and dangerous secrets. And that the past—always just out of sight—could drag them both under.

Booklist Reviews 2017 April #1

*Starred Review* The message Anna Harris' employer, Helen Spencer, left for her was short, simple, and written in Helen's blood: "Run." So, flee is exactly what Anna did. Upon arriving in California, she reinvents herself as Irene Glasson, but now, just when Irene is settling into her life as the newest rookie reporter for the Hollywood gossip rag Whispers, she finds herself tangled up in another murder when she agrees to meet movie actress Gloria Maitland at the Burning Cove Hotel and discovers Gloria's body at the bottom of the pool. Determined to solve the mystery of Gloria's murder, Irene finds herself forced into a reluctant investigative partnership with Oliver Ward, a former world-class magician and now owner of the hotel. All of the key ingredients—wit-infused writing, sharply etched characters, and plenty of simmering sexual chemistry—that readers have come to expect from Quick ('Til Death Do Us Part, 2016) snap into perfect alignment in this stellar novel. Put that together with a plot that neatly marries high-stakes suspense and a glamorous, old Hollywood setting, and you have a blockbuster that will not only delight historical-romance readers but also entice historical-mystery fans to join in on the fun.

The bloody word run, written on the wallpaper, was all it took for Anna Harris to flee the scene of her boss's brutal murder. Even though she's reinvented herself as aspiring reporter Irene Glasson and is living on the other side of the country in tiny Burning Cove, CA, she senses she's in harm's way and all because of a cryptic notebook in her care. She hopes not to call attention to herself, but then the actress she was in town to interview ends up at the bottom of the pool at the exclusive Burning Cove Hotel. Now Irene and compelling magician-turned-hotel owner Oliver Ward are swept up in a game of mystery and suspense that becomes more complex by the page. Suspicion battles with attraction as our protagonists work to overcome their trust issues and put the puzzle pieces together. VERDICT This swiftly moving romance brims with surprising plot twists, delicious sensuality, and a delightfully classy 1930s California setting. An adventurous romp that will have readers hungry for more. Quick ('Til Death Do Us Part) lives in Seattle.
