Hello, friends! There are a few days left to enter to win a full set of the Agency mysteries. Here are the links:
Today, I’m sharing with you four quotations from Rivals in the City. I like the way they emphasize the story’s various strands and concerns.
“This is my first taste of true independence, the closest I’ll ever come to perfect freedom.”
“We’ve waded through sewers, dangled from a bell tower, and stumbled out of a burning building together. Can you top that?”
“Mary swung around to face him, taking both his hands and halting him midstep. ‘James Easton, I am fervently, passionately, utterly, scandalously in love with you.’”
And, my personal favourite:
“They looked precisely like what they were: a courting couple taking the air of a late morning. They also looked nothing like what they were: a pair of radicals, quietly at war with their society.”
I loved writing about Mary Quinn and feel very sorry that time is past. But I’m glad her adventures continue with this reissue from Candlewick Press! If you don’t already know her, I hope you will.
