Amanda Quick's Otherwise Engaged is 5 stars. I could hardly put the book down and finished it last night on 4-23-14. It holds your interest from page one to last page. The suspense is great you have to keep reading to found out what happens next. I love the fan that Amity uses to defend herself what a concept. I love the plot about solar energy and did not think it was thought of that early. I am glad that Amity's sister Penny did not resort anything desperte to get away. In her situation in that era were only two options open to her. Amanda Quick books either like this one or with paranormal are always great.

No paranormal just a fun romantic mystery.  Classic Amanda Quick (JAK).  Smart, witty, curious woman meets nerdy hunk doing a favor for his uncle a spymaster for the crown.  Oh and then there is the Jack the Ripper type madman.  Fun, fun, fun.

This is a very well written historical romance, with a great story line, and a wonderful mystery to solve. The heroine is a strong woman who is a travel writer. During one of her treks she found a wounded man in an alley. Enter our hero, Benedict Stanbridge. He is an engineer who is on a mission for his uncle. He called to Amity, our heroine, to the alley to help him by holding a letter for him and to get that letter to his uncle. However, Amity's father was a doctor and she has picked up enough knowledge to help save Benedict's life. Their adventures will keep your turning the pages and trying to solve the mysteries. I won this book through Library Thing in exchange for an honest review. I honestly loved it!

This was all over the place. Not really a romance or detective or a spy thriller. Dialogue between characters made no sense. Odd book.

It wasn't a book that kept me glued to the pages. There didn't seem to be any chemistry between the characters. It wasn't bad, but I found it very easy to put down and finish later.

Another great Amanda Quick book. It keeps you interested from start to end. The characters are ones you'd like to meet and call your friends. It almost makes you wish you could have lived in their time.

Intrepid world traveler, Amity Doncaster, happens upon a bleeding gentleman, Benedict Stanbridge, at her ship’s tour stop in St. Clare. Benedict’s been shot. Nonplussed, Amity, the daughter of a doctor, staunches the bleeding and gets him back to their ship. Benedict rouses, asking that she keep a certain letter safe for him until he recovers. Under her care, he swiftly rallies. They part ways at journey’s end, he to American West with his letter and she to London. When they meet again months later, Amity’s the target of a lunatic serial killer and Benedict’s still on his errand for the Crown. Romance flares as they hunt for a killer and a spy. It was refreshing to take a break from the paranormal theme of many of Jayne’s recent books. I read this story in two sittings and enjoyed every word.

This was a well written book. However, I found it a bit slow and drawn out. A good time period book but be prepared for a slow read.

The characters are very one dimensional & lackluster. The dialog is stilted, & the plot is a bit ridiculous. I'm glad it was on sale, & that I didn't waste too much money, just too much time on reading as much as I could tolerate.

Otherwise Engaged is a lovely, enthralling story that keeps the reader entertained. This is the story of Amity, a traveler/writer who meets Benedict during one of her adventures. Benedict has been shot and Amity saves his life. When she returns she finds herself in danger and her reputation in question. Benedict returns to London and they try to solve a murder mystery.

Previous reviews have said this novel was well written. I can't help but think those readers have never read a really well written book. This one certainly was not. The story was okay, but the writing, especially the dialogue was lacking.

As usual with this author, a great read. Fast paced and unpredictable. Romance and mystery in a historical setting.......my favorite combination.

Amanda always does a wonderful job and this one is no different. Loved the story line and the characters.  Amity and Benedict are wonderful and it was wonderful that Amity had the characterization of being a "doctor" made me feel like she was a strong character and could take care of herself. Benedict was amazing too and I was proud of him for trying to do the right thing by Amity when the rumors flew. I loved her sister too and how her sister stood up for Amity even if she was the youngest and a widow. Thank you for such a wonderful story.
