In “Property of a Noblewoman” by Danielle Steel, the contents of a safe deposit box, among them some fine pieces of jewelry, are soon to be auctioned if an heir cannot be identified. A law clerk at the surrogate’s court and a fine arts expert join forces to reconstruct the life of the lady who left the box. It’s soap, but that’s why readers like Danielle Steel. “’Til Death do us Part” by Amanda Quick offers more escapist fun in a tale of romantic suspense. In Victorian London, a young woman is receiving odd gifts from an anonymous admirer. She seeks help from a reclusive writer of crime stories.
