Book Review: A Necessary Deception

When young widow Lydia Gale helps a French prisoner obtain parole, she never dreams she will see him again.  But just as the London Season gets under way, the man presents himself in her parlor.  While she should be focused on getting her headstrong younger sister prepared for her entree into Society, Lady Gale finds herself preoccupied with the mysterious Frenchman.  Is he a spy or a suitor?  Can she trust him?  Or is she putting herself and her family in danger?

Discover a world of elegance and intrigue, balls and masquerades as Laurie Alice Eakes whisks you into the drawing rooms of London Society on this exciting quest to let the past stay in the past - and let the past stay in the past - and let let love guide the future.

This is the first book in the Daughters of Bainbridge House Series and leaves you waiting on edge to read book #2.  Suspense, mystery and romance all wrapped together in high society where looking your best is most important.

When I read these books I always wonder if I could live in such an era.....I suppose I could but I would most likely raise quite a few eyebrows in the process creating quite a bit of amusement or horror for those more 'high' society!  This book has it's share of humor as well as a bit of French thrown in, author Laurie Eakes seems to have extensive knowledge about the era and keeps the book real and intriguing through the very end.

I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for review from Revell, a Division of Baker Publishing.
