Waiting On Wednesday #30: Crystal Gardens, by Amanda Quick

This is a weekly book meme, hosted by
which features future releases that we book bloggers
are eagerly anticipating!

Here's my pick for
this week!!

(Ladies of Lantern Street Series #1)
Hardcover, 352 pages
Putnam Adult
Expected Publication Date:
April 24, 2012
Genre: Paranormal Romance

From the Goodreads Synopsis

Evangeline Ames has rented a country cottage far from the London streets where she was recently attacked. Fascinated by the paranormal energy of nearby Crystal Gardens, she finds pleasure in sneaking past the wall to explore the grounds. And when her life is threatened again, she instinctively goes to the gardens for safety.

Lucas Sebastian has never been one to ignore a lady in danger, even if she is trespassing on his property. 

And as the energy emanating from Crystal Gardens intensifies, they realize that to survive they must unearth what has been buried for too long...

I'm usually attracted to a book
because of its cover, and this one
certainly has a beautiful one!
However, if the plot
doesn't thrill me, then I won't be
interested in making the book
a part of my collection.
Fortunately, in this case,
the plot sounds intriguing enough
that I really do want the novel!
Besides, I'm excited about
actually starting a new series!!


  1. Great pick! Even though i don't read that much adult novels, this does sound good :D

  4. I'm not a fan of the book cover and would walk right by it in a store, but the blurb has hooked me. Thanks for sharing such a great WoW book. I will be adding it to my reading wishlist.(New Linky Follower) Natasha @ Paranormal Goddess Book Blog - My Waiting On Wednesday Post

    1. Hey, Natasha!

      Oh, I love this cover myself, but everyone has different opinions, of course. I'm glad you like the blurb! You're very welcome for the share! I'm glad you're adding the book to your wishlist!

      Thank you so much for the comment and the follow! I'm heading over to your WOW post!! And, if I'm not following you already, I'll make sure I am! : )

  5. I don't read a lot of period romances except by Amanda Quick. Her heroines have a spark of emancipation about them that make the characters likeable and very daring. This series deals with the paranormal senses used for both evil and good. Of course the good always wins but why not?
    Evangeline is able to escape a murderer by running into the weird garden of the next door neighbor, her landlord. The story involves treasure hunting and good over evil and a very large cast of characters.
    The plant life in this story is some that I would hope to never encounter.
