The Mystery Woman (Ladies of Lantern Street #2) by Amanda Quick

Another historical mystery/romance with a bit of a paranormal bent by Jayne Anne Krentz’s alter ego Amanda Quick .
The Ladies of Lantern Street are private investigators with a little extra.  They each have a paranormal talent.  Beatrice Lockwood came to work for the Ladies after her previous employer was murdered and now his murderer is looking for her.   Joshua North doesn't believe in the paranormal but has the reputation of being able to find anyone.  He has found Beatrice and now so has the man who killed her former employer.  Joshua needs to keep Beatrice safe but can he keep his heart safe too?

I love these stories.  The mix of mystery, romance and humor are a fantastic way to while away a rainy afternoon.  Literary escapism at its best.
