    This was a very enjoyable read. While at times a little difficult to follow since I had not read previous stories of Captain Lacey, usually the plot quickly returned to understanding.
  • Really Excellent Book!

    By WestiesMama
    Wow, I definitely enjoyed this book! I got the book from BookBub, which means I paid practically nothing for it. Halfway through, I decided there might be earlier books in the series and went to iBooks to find them. There aren't - but this is the first in a series. I bought the entire series. The characters are well described and believable and the mystery plot is really interesting. The plot twists will have you turning pages as fast as you can. I highly recommend these books to anyone who likes historical mystery or historical fiction.

    I wasn't able to finish the book. It was just too slow for me and it wasn't able to keep my interest.
  • A fantastic tale

    By smileyV
    I loved this book. The plot is fantastic and will keep you guessing till the very end. Captain Lacey is a complex man with more than a few secrets. You just can't help but be drawn into his story. I plan on reading the whole series. I'm so glad I found this!

    This was one of the best mysteries I've read. The authors ability, through her descriptions, puts you right in the scene, experiencing all the sensations of being there. You are kept in suspense thru-out the entire book. Can't wait to read more of the series!
  • Absolutely FABULOUS!

    Truly a wonderful book! Engaging, thorough, and suspenseful, The Hanover Square Affair took me only about four hours to read - it was that much of a page-turner! I think I just might be half in love with Captain Lacey, truth be told. I want to wrap him up tight in an embrace and protect (likely from himself!) & take care of him forever. I want him to reconcile with Colonel Brandon, to find true love & have a whole host of kids, and to no longer have to live the way he does in this story, having to scrimp just to buy coal. I believe I am going to go in search of the rest of the Captain Lacey Regency Mysteries!
