‘Til Death Do Us Part: Review

It surprises me that despite using the same formula for her novels again and again, Amanda Quick never fails to deliver. In her latest novel, ‘Til Death Do Us Part, we’re introduced to Calista Langley, a matchmaker who owns an ‘introduction’ agency; and Trent Hastings, a reclusive author of crime novels.
