Set in the Regency Era, A Necessary Deception takes you into the high society of England. Where mystery and espionage is active. We find widower Lydia Gale in a tight position after helping a French prisoner gain his freedom. She has unwittingly put herself in the hands of spies.
With the reviews on the back of the book I thought this would be like it said a "page-turning story" but unfortunately I found it to be page-turning for the wrong reasons. I just wanted to get done with the book so I didn't need to read it anymore. I'm sure others found it interesting because the detail of Regency England is accurate and beautiful, but other then that I had a hard time with it. Laurie Alice Eakes I'm sure is a great author and researcher, this however, was not one of her greatest books.
