Otherwise Engaged by Amanda Quick

Otherwise Engaged by Amanda Quick is the story of Miss Amity Doncaster and Benedict Stanbridge. She is a world traveler who writes articles in the paper for the ladies of London to read and enjoy and is working on a book that is a collection of all her travels. 

Benedict is a man who is sent to the Americas to retrieve some vital information about a new engine that might revolutionize the world of oil. Amity meets Benedict when he is hurt and she is on her way back to England. He asks her to promise him to take a letter to his uncle if he doesn't survive. He recovers and little do they know that their little trip would cause a scandal in the ton.

When Amity returns to England she is kidnapped by a man who she doesn't recognize and she barely escapes but thanks to her trusty fan she makes it out alive only to find herself engaged to Benedict whom she hasn't talked to in a month. When he returns he sees the announcement and gets her agree to the rumors so that they can find the man who kidnapped her and is referred to by the papers as the “Bridegroom”. 

This was a wonderful story and I read it from cover to cover in one night because I wanted to know who the “Bridegroom” was. I was wrong on who I thought the killer was but then I was right that another character was involved.

 Thank you Amanda for another great story and I love all of her mystery stories. Can’t wait for the next story to come out.
