Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: "After escaping from a private sanitarium, Adelaide Blake arrives in Burning Cove, California, desperate to start over. Working at an herbal tea shop puts her on the radar of those who frequent the seaside resort town: Hollywood movers and shakers always in need of hangover cures and tonics. One such customer is Jake Truett, a recently widowed businessman in town for a therapeutic rest. But unbeknownst to Adelaide, his exhaustion is just a cover. In Burning Cove, no one is who they seem. Behind facades of glamour and power hide drug dealers, gangsters, and grifters. Into this make-believe world comes psychic to the stars Madame Zolanda. Adelaide and Jake know better than to fall for her kind of con. But when the medium becomes a victim of her own dire prediction and is killed, they'll be drawn into a murky world of duplicity and misdirection. Neither Adelaide nor Jake can predict that in the shadowy underground they'll find connections to the woman Adelaide used to be--and uncover the specter of a killer who's been real all along.."--

    *Starred Review* Adelaide Blake is almost certain no one in the California coastal town of Burning Cove has made the connection between Adeline Brockton, the newest waitress at Refresh Tearoom, and Adelaide Blake, an escaped mental patient from the Rushbrook Sanitorium. By maintaining a polite distance between herself and everyone else, Adelaide hopes to keep her past under wraps, but that social buffer becomes increasingly difficult to sustain when wealthy, enigmatic businessman Jake Truett turns up to recuperate from a case of "exhausted nerves." As the initial spark of attraction between them ignites into something much hotter, they find themselves forced to work ever more closely together when a murderer comes calling. After wowing readers with The Girl Who Knew Too Much (2017), the first in a fabulous new series set in 1930s California, Quick brews up another delectable blend of history, mystery, and romance set against the opulent backdrop of golden age Hollywood. Between the novel's cleverly conceived and brilliantly executed plot and Quick's signature delicious dash of dry humor, The Other Lady Vanishes is the perfect cup of literary tea for both ­historical-romance readers and historical-mystery mavens.
