Garden of Lies

Amanda Quick, a pen name for Jayne Ann Krentz, can be counted upon to write historical romances set in Victorian England, usually with a twist of mystery. They are all light, a little steamy, and feature strong female characters. In sum, they are guaranteed to take you away from reality making them perfect getaway reads. They are especially enjoyable on audio because of the narrators' English accents.

An instant best-seller when published in 1968, True Grit has also been made into film. Twice. These facts alone should recommend it, and I am here to back it up with a solid vote for a place on your nightstand.
