Set in 1812, ‘Necessary Deception’ brought me to a time when England and France were at war, spies were everywhere (or so it seemed), and the London Season was just beginning.
I loved ‘Necessary Deception’! It was written so beautifully and the story was so believable that it became addicting to read (I especially didn’t want to put it down towards the end).
The plot had so much mystery! I kept trying to figure out who the mastermind was, who was blackmailing Lydia, and whether or not there was a spy (or spies) in her midst.
Historical romance is not my favorite genre to read (suspense is); however, since there was a lot of mystery – ‘Necessary Deception’ almost felt like a suspense novel!
‘Necessary Deception’ is the first book that I’ve read by Laurie Alice Eakes, but I don’t think it will be my last – I can hardly wait for the next addition in ‘The Daughters of Bainbridge House’ series!
I most definitely recommend ‘Necessary Deception’ if you enjoy reading novels that have romance as well as mystery!
