    • Abstract:
      Summary: "The New York Times bestselling author of The Girl Who Knew Too Much sweeps readers back to 1930s California--where the most dazzling of illusions can't hide the darkest secrets ... After escaping from a private sanitarium, Adelaide Blake arrives in Burning Cove, California, desperate to start over. Working at an herbal tea shop puts her on the radar of those who frequent the seaside resort town: Hollywood movers and shakers always in need of hangover cures and tonics. One such customer is Jake Truett, a recently widowed businessman in town for a therapeutic rest. But unbeknownst to Adelaide, his exhaustion is just a cover. In Burning Cove, no one is who they seem. Behind facades of glamour and power hide drug dealers, gangsters, and grifters. Into this make-believe world comes psychic to the stars Madame Zolanda. Adelaide and Jake know better than to fall for her kind of con. But when the medium becomes a victim of her own dire prediction and is killed, they're drawn into a murky world of duplicity and misdirection. Neither Adelaide nor Jake can predict that in the shadowy underground they'll find connections to the woman Adelaide used to be--and uncover the specter of a killer who's been real all along.."-- Provided by publisher.

Booklist Reviews 2018 March #2

*Starred Review* Adelaide Blake is almost certain no one in the California coastal town of Burning Cove has made the connection between Adeline Brockton, the newest waitress at Refresh Tearoom, and Adelaide Blake, an escaped mental patient from the Rushbrook Sanitorium. By maintaining a polite distance between herself and everyone else, Adelaide hopes to keep her past under wraps, but that social buffer becomes increasingly difficult to sustain when wealthy, enigmatic businessman Jake Truett turns up to recuperate from a case of "exhausted nerves." As the initial spark of attraction between them ignites into something much hotter, they find themselves forced to work ever more closely together when a murderer comes calling. After wowing readers with The Girl Who Knew Too Much (2017), the first in a fabulous new series set in 1930s California, Quick brews up another delectable blend of history, mystery, and romance set against the opulent backdrop of golden age Hollywood. Between the novel's cleverly conceived and brilliantly executed plot and Quick's signature delicious dash of dry humor, The Other Lady Vanishes is the perfect cup of literary tea for both ­historical-romance readers and historical-mystery mavens.

On the run after a narrow escape from an exclusive mental sanitarium (and the villains who put her there), Adelaide Blake takes refuge in tiny Burning Cove, a town along the California coast that is becoming trendy with the Hollywood set. Her job at the local tearoom is a good match for her herbalist skills, and after two months she is still wary but beginning to settle into a routine. She has even attracted the interest of businessman Jake Truett, the widower who is renting the sea cliff cottage near hers. But her pursuers are hot on her trail, and when a popular psychic predicts a death and then is found murdered, Adelaide and Jake are swept up in a web of lies that has Adelaide at its core. Red herrings and multiple baddies stir the plot in a fun-filled romp that has ties to Quick's The Girl Who Knew Too Much. VERDICT With humorous repartee, a diabolical plot, and characters that make the 1930s spring to life, Quick's lively story of murder, intrigue, and romance keeps its secrets until the very end. Quick ('Til Death Do Us Part) also writes as Jayne Ann Krentz and Jayne Castle; she lives in Seattle. [See Prepub Alert 11/21/17.]

PW Reviews 2018 March #4

Fans of The Girl Who Knew Too Much will find that Quick's complicated but entertaining follow-up, set in Hollywood's golden age, hits the spot. The tea shop in Burning Cove, Calif., attracts movie stars and the tourists who want to gape at them. Adelaide Blake's special tea blends always bring back return customers, such as handsome widower Jake Truett, who is visiting the seaside community to soothe his "exhausted nerves," and Zolanda, a psychic to the stars. Adelaide understands botanicals because her parents were scientists who were killed after they developed a dangerous hallucinogenic drug. She landed in Burning Cove after being kidnapped and experimented on by doctors who were looking to develop that drug for street use—and to serve secret political agendas—on the eve of WWII. After Zolanda correctly predicts her own death, Adelaide and Jake wind up in the crosshairs of the sophisticated and violent drug ring that Adelaide only barely escaped. This romantic thriller requires careful tracking of numerous characters, but the effort pays off. (May)
