A Necessary Deception by Laurie Alice Eakes ~ Revell Blog Tour and Review

 Necessary Deception, A: A Novel by Laurie Alice Eakes: Book Cover
My Review: A Necessary Deception is so much more than the cover would imply. It is a Regency novel full of lush characters and suspense. A read that I thoroughly enjoyed, down to the very last page. I will admit that I was a bit lost in the first chapter, but after I got my bearings all was well. Laurie Alice Eakes brings the world and society of centuries past, to life in a beautifully entertaining and page turning manner. Having read other books by the same author I expected no less :)

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
