Jane Austen meets Sherlock Holmes in this new Regency mystery series
Newly returned from finishing school, Lady Juliette Thorndike is ready to debut in London society. Due to her years away, she hasn't spent much time with her parents, and sees them only as the flighty, dilettante couple the other nobles love.But when they disappear, she discovers she never really knew them at all. They've been living double lives as government spies--and they're only the latest in a long history of espionage that is the family's legacy.
Now Lady Juliette is determined to continue their work. Mentored by her uncle, she plunges into the dangerous world of spies. From the glittering ballrooms of London to the fox hunts, regattas, and soirees of country high society, she must chase down hidden clues, solve the mysterious code her parents left behind, and stay out of danger. All the while, she has to keep her endeavors a secret from her best friend and her suitors--not to mention the nosy, irritatingly handsome Bow Street runner, who suspects her of a daring theft.
Can Lady Juliette outwit her enemies and complete her parents' last mission?
Best-selling author Erica Vetsch is back with a rollicking, exciting new series destined to be a hit with Regency readers who enjoy a touch of mystery in their love stories. Fans of Julie Klassen, Sarah Ladd, and Anne Perry will love the wit, action, and romance.
Erica Vetsch has a way with story telling that I just cannot get enough of. I am easily drawn to this storyline for many reasons. One – the characters are charming, relatable (even though we live in different time periods, there are certain aspects of Juliette’s world that I seem to connect with), and fun to be around. Two – the mystery is so fun in this novel. I think I’ve figured it out and Vetsch provides a fun twist to spin my head around to another direction. It’s enough to keep my guessing and on my toes, which I love! Three – the faith element. Here’s the thing. We grow up thinking that our parents know what they’re talking about, and sometimes those thoughts feel like they are our own, but really not. Juliette has some lessons to learn throughout this novel and her faith is something she needs to assess – is it based on her parents, or her personal opinions/connections. I don’t want to give anything away, but this was interesting to read.
I am so excited that Vestch is giving us a new series, and I’m already wishing the next release date was here. I go hope we get more from Daniel and Juliette in that book. I highly recommend readers check out this wonderful historic read. Vetsch will take you back in time, have you dancing, laughing, and crime solving. Can you ask for anything better!?
I received a complimentary copy of this book. I was not required to write a favorable review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
