Librarian Jacqueline Kirby, wanting a tax-deductible excuse to vacation in New York City (and to leave the small town in Nebraska where she works at a small college), poses as a romance author in order to attend a historical romance writers conference in the Big Apple. She is soon caught up in masquerades, intrigues, and deadly goings-on. This light mystery with intriguing characters is capably narrated by Liza Ross, who produces a range of credible voices for persons both male and female, several with discernible regional accents. Jacqueline's wry tone is matched by Ross's light, never-too-serious inflection, making for a very pleasant listening experience. A good addition to mystery collections and wherever the author is popular.?Melody Moxley, Rowan P.L., Salisbury, N.C.

This is by far, one of the funniest books written by Elizabeth Peters/Barbara Michaels. She must have written bodice rippers at one time in her literary life to have created... Read morePublished on May 20 1999
