I've always been a big fan of Amanda Quick. I love how she doesn't feel the need to write about perfect women. Instead, she writes about strong women that take charge of their lives. Crystal Garden is the first of the Ladies of Lantern Street. It's about Evangeline Ames & Lucas Sebastian. Both of them have paranormal abilities and use it in their real lives as investigators. They are now working together to find out who wants Evangeline dead. I do have to say this isn't one of my favorite of Quick's books. I found it slightly boring. I will say that her other books are wonderful and you should read them. I'm not saying not to read Crystal Garden's, because there are so very good moments in the book and the characters are very strong. Happy reading!
