Praise for The Other Lady Vanishes "It feels like Quick found a script to one of those film noir delights and spun it into gold, so genuine is the atmosphere she crafts. Within a few chapters, you can't escape the sensation that you've fallen back in time into a black-and-white picture rife with mystery, murder, and a chemistry that develops in spite of (or maybe because of) the mayhem around the two central lovers."--Entertainment Weekly Praise for The Girl Who Knew Too Much "The action-packed plot is kick-started at page one...Quick has a great time with the 1930s Hollywood-glamour atmosphere."--The Seattle Times "There are fierce forces at play in every page of The Girl Who Knew Too Much, and you won't be able to put down this captivating mystery until the last page is fervently turned. What's not to love about a scandalous historical tale set in the glamorous years of 1930s Hollywood?"--Redbook "Quick is often named as one of the inventors of the romantic mystery, and she writes the genre effortlessly--the love story and the mystery are beautifully intertwined here."--The Washington Post "[Quick's] fascinating plots draw her readers along like lambs to a slaughter...a master storyteller."--The Huffington Post "A fun, spunky, read that contains plenty of simmering sexual chemistry, which will most definitely satiate the most ardent fans of Amanda Quick."--New York Journal of Books "A fascinating look into the bygone days of the glamorous era of Hollywood."--Fresh Fiction "All of the key ingredients--wit-infused writing, sharply etched characters, and plenty of simmering sexual chemistry--that readers have come to expect from Quick snap into perfect alignment in this stellar novel.
