The delightful detecting duo of Lavinia Lake and Tobias March are back. This time, they're hunting a serial killer.

A house party at Beaumont Castle seems ideal for a romantic tryst. However, Lavinia and Tobias' best-laid plans are interrupted by a late-night visitor: Aspasia Grey, a stunningly beautiful and somewhat mysterious woman from Tobias' past who needs his help.

Lavinia is not convinced they should take the case—after all she found Aspasia and Tobias in a rather compromising position in his bedroom. But Tobias cannot turn down Aspasia's plea for help, especially since it involves an old case, an assassin, a supposedly dead killer and strangely ominous threats. Suddenly a quiet, romantic weekend becomes a deadly game, as it appears someone is imitating a dead man's modus operandi.

In Lavinia and Tobias, Amanda Quick has come up with the Nick and Nora of Regency sleuthing. This dynamic duo not only solves crimes, they build a sensual, powerful, loving relationship. SENSUAL (May, 350 pp., $24.95)
