Written by Amanda Quick, Audiobook narrated by Katherine Kellgren. At five and 20, Prudence Merryweather knew very well the risks a woman took by visiting a gentleman in the dead of night. But bearding the notorious Earl of Angelstone in his den was the only way to stop him from engaging her hot-headed brother in a duel. And that was why she found herself ushered into Sebastian's forbidding presence at three in the morning - and thoroughly kissed before dawn.

d a blow of some kind to her head. The authorities concluded that she had hit a rock or some other underwater obstacle when she jumped, but there are other possibilities. Louisa stifled a small shiver. There were indeed other ways one could sustain a blow to the head. A poker, for example, could create a most grievous wound, a killing wound

Author: Amanda Quick. The first kiss occurred in a dimly lit hallway on the upper floor of Elwin Hastings’s grand house. Louisa Bryce never saw it coming. Of course, handsome, wealthy Anthony Stalbridge couldn’t possibly have had romantic intentions. The kiss was merely meant to distract the armed guard about to catch the two unlikely sleuths.

The first kiss occurred in a dimly lit hallway on the upper floor of Elwin Hastings’s grand house. Louisa never saw it coming.…


Of course, Anthony Stalbridge couldn’t possibly have had romantic intentions. The kiss was an act of desperation, meant to distract the armed guard who was about to catch the pair in a place they most definitely did not belong. After all, in her dull maroon gown and gold-rimmed spectacles, Louisa Bryce was no man’s idea of an alluring female. Clearly, the only thing a catch like Anthony Stalbridge had in common with a wallflower like Louisa was a passionate interest in the private affairs of Mr. Hastings - a prominent member of Society whom they both suspect of hiding terrible secrets. Now, thrown into each other’s arms by their ruse, Anthony and Louisa are united in their efforts to find the truth.


Each has a personal reason for the quest. Months earlier, Anthony’s fiancée threw herself into the Thames—or at least, that is the version whispered in London’s social circles. Anthony believes someone else may have had a hand in her death—and a murderous one at that. Louisa, whose own identity is shrouded in layers of mystery, is convinced that Hastings has a connection to a notorious brothel. When Anthony successfully cracks Hastings’s hidden safe and discovers highly incriminating evidence, it appears that both their instincts were correct.


But Hastings is hiding far more than jewels and ledger books. Bringing him to justice will be more perilous than Louisa and Anthony anticipate—and their partnership will be more heated than either expects. For the two share a thrilling attraction to danger, and it is not only Anthony’s curiosity that Louisa arouses.


Reviews:

Classic Amanda Quick. A resourceful heroine, alone in the world but for the grace of an atypical benefactor-ess. An eccentric gentleman looking to right a wrong. An interesting set of supporting characters, and a mystery or two with villains to spare. When Louisa Bryce and Anthony Stalbridge begin a partnership looking into a man they believe committed not one, but two murders, they find themselves caught in the middle of one person's plan to exact revenge on someone who did them wrong.

Although not a complete mystery, there are a few missing pieces that keep one guessing throughout the story, and of course the interactions between Louisa and Tony are amusing.

I love Amanda Quick's style, you can tell the amount of research done to make the story roll out realistically. The heroine was someone I could understand, could almost see everything play out through her eyes - and then she grabbed me and it was 2AM again before I could put her story down to get a bit of sleep! Considering some of the recent rhetoric about journalists, I thought it was a nice touch to give the heroine a foot in that field. It was an excellent touch for the hero to be kept awake by the quirks of her energetic mind, and the rest of her bits and pieces joined the interest. I had fun with this one; read it, I think you will, too.

I'm a fan of Amanda Quick... her old stuff at any rate. Lately not enough focus is on the romance and too much on the unnecessarily convoluted mystery. I actually liked Anthony and Louise and there was cause to think, as I was reading, that there'd be a romance here, but no. It was obvious who the top villain was pretty early on in this tale. Then it ends up with that villain blurting out to Louise how and why they did it. Seems like the previous story to this one did the same thing. Disappointed in much of this story but I still like Amanda Quick's style, therefore a 3.

"It's ok" defintely describes how I felt about The River Knows. After reading the sample chapter, I was greatly anticipating reading the full story, and promptly signed myself up on the request list at the library. Who doesn't want to read a thriller where the heroine fakes her own death?

Sadly, while several exciting and suspenseful elements are introduced throughout the novel, none of these elements are developed to their full potential, leaving this reader with a sense of letdown once I finally finished the book. As the villian is introduced, he truly seems like quite the scoundrel, yet he never seems to fully come alive as an evil man; the surprise second villian, who makes an unexpected appearance 3/4 of the way through the book leads the plot on an interesting twist, but again, Quick introduces this character and just sort of lets him dangle along without any real development.

Even with the love story, Anthony and Louisa just seem to roll along. Oh sure, there are a few obstacles placed in their path, but neither has any real emotional hang-up to overcome, and even the faked death - the thrilling beginning of the story! - is merely passed over, almost as an afterthought.

The story did keep me engrossed, sort of, but did not leave me wanting more. Not my favorite Quick novel, and while I didn't hate it, I wouldn't recommend it to fellow readers.

Good repartee. Excellent story line. Lots of action and unexpected plot twists. You will enjoy reading "The River Knows." Another A. Quick success.

I love Amanda Quick. I can always count on her to intertwine romance with suspense and a little who done it. In the River Knows she doesn't disappoint. I was very intrigued from the very first scene and couldn't wait to find out all the twists and turns of the story. I really like the hero's family and how they support the relationship. It's a very good read.

I enjoy the Amanda Quick mysteries as they take the reader back in time with unconventional heroes and heroines.
The dialogue sizzles and there are the interesting twists and turns in the story. Mrs Burke and Stalbridge made a great pair and the villains were equally riveting!
Four stars rating for a gently rollicking story that educates the reader about Regency England, women's rights at the time, law enforcement between the social classes and justice served one way or another. I always enjoy Amanda Quick novels for the interesting characters and tidy plot twists. Louisa and Anthony are both outliers in polite society. Unshackled by their refusal to abide by society strictures, they pursue clues at every level from the ballroom to the brothel. Of course romance ensues and the villains are caught. A fast read with a satisfying climax. Enjoy!
