The whole time I was reading this book, I could see the characters and the scenes in my head clearly as if on a television screen. I was swept into the plot and the characters, very easily, I really didn't want to put this one down :)
Regency is one of my favorite genres due to my love for Jane Austen books and the general enchantment of the era, probably because I watch so many BBC classics... And yet, another reason why I enjoyed this book.
The historical details were woven into the story, in a way that assumed you knew what the author was talking about, yet at the same the historical facts were not being flung at you.
Laurie Alice Eakes is a gifted writer and I eagerly await her next novel, whatever it may be about. Overall, A Necessary Deception was all around, my type of book. Rich in romance, mystery, the Regency era, spies, etc. A very engaging novel, that I would not hesitate to highly recommend!
Final Rating: 5 out of 5
