Cavalry captain Gabriel Lacey returns to Regency London from the Napoleonic wars, burned out, fighting melancholia, his career ended. His interest is piqued when he learns of a missing girl, possibly kidnapped by a prominent member of Parliament. Lacey's search for the young woman to murder, corruption, and dealings with a leader of the underworld. At the same time, he struggles with his disorientation transitioning from a soldier's life to the civilian world, redefining his role with his former commanding officer, and making new friends--from the top of society to the street girls of Covent Garden.
Book 1 of the Captain Lacey Regency Mysteries. This is a full-length novel.
This a good story with a great background that shaped the characters
Couldn't put it down ... But it's not a romance do t know why it's in this category
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!
