Publishers Weekly Review
In Turano's enjoyable second installment of the Bleecker Street Inquiry Agency series (after To Steal a Heart) a private investigator falls for a client. In 1887 New York City, Daphne Beekman, a successful mystery novelist who writes under a pen name, moonlights as an inquiry agent. Herman Henderson, another famous mystery author, requests her services after someone tries to run him over. While attempting to keep her nom de plume secret, Daphne and several of her associates go undercover to Herman's house posing as a secretary and travel staff. Between the young woman Herman has rejected, authors jealous of Herman's success, and disgruntled house employees, suspects are everywhere. Mayhem abounds, and when Daphne's secret is revealed, her status as a mystery writer becomes her new cover for visiting Herman. Meanwhile, romance blossoms between Herman and Daphne, but the case must be solved for them to find happiness. Turano nicely blends the intensity of the investigation with the percolation of romance and Daphne's prayers for the courage she eventually finds. Fans of faith-driven mysteries and romantic comedies will delight in this entertaining whodunit. (Aug.)
