The Hanover Square Affair (Ashley Gardner & Jennifer Ashley) Book Reviews

The Hanover Square AffairThis was one of the best mysteries I've read. The authors ability, through her descriptions, puts you right in the scene, experiencing all the sensations of being there. You are kept in suspense thru-out the entire book. Can't wait to read more of the series!.Score: 5/5

Absolutely FABULOUS!Truly a wonderful book! Engaging, thorough, and suspenseful, The Hanover Square Affair took me only about four hours to read - it was that much of a page-turner! I think I just might be half in love with Captain Lacey, truth be told. I want to wrap him up tight in an embrace and protect (likely from himself!) & take care of him forever. I want him to reconcile with Colonel Brandon, to find true love & have a whole host of kids, and to no longer have to live the way he does in this story, having to scrimp just to buy coal. I believe I am going to go in search of the rest of the Captain Lacey Regency Mysteries!.Score: 5/5

Hannover Square AffairModern theme in a historical context. In some senses Capt. Lacey has a timeless chivalry about him as he solves a brutal abduction of a young woman. A sordid affair that Gardner weaves through the Victorian London streets! A great start to a good series!.Score: 4/5

Really Excellent Book!Wow, I definitely enjoyed this book! I got the book from BookBub, which means I paid practically nothing for it. Halfway through, I decided there might be earlier books in the series and went to iBooks to find them. There aren't - but this is the first in a series. I bought the entire series. The characters are well described and believable and the mystery plot is really interesting. The plot twists will have you turning pages as fast as you can. I highly recommend these books to anyone who likes historical mystery or historical fiction..Score: 5/5

Couldn't put it downExcellently written. Engaging characters. Went through the whole series in a couple weeks and am looking forward to the next book. Highly recommend.Score: 5/5

It was hard to like the main characterBut the novel was compelling. The author sets the story in London in 1816, right after Wellington beat Napoleon at Waterloo. These were terrible times to live in dirty, polluted cities and London was the worst. Rigid class distinctions exacerbated the misery of all but the very wealthy. All this can make a fascinating thriller, and Ashley Gardner does just that. Lots of twists and turns later this story ends satisfactorily with most of its questions answered. This reader can’t wait to read more of the adventures of Captain Lacey..Score: 5/5

A fantastic taleI loved this book. The plot is fantastic and will keep you guessing till the very end. Captain Lacey is a complex man with more than a few secrets. You just can't help but be drawn into his story. I plan on reading the whole series. I'm so glad I found this!.Score: 5/5

Hanover Square AffairExcellent story with a lot of truth in it. History tells us of caste system between those who have wealth and those that don’t. It’s still happening in many third world countries. Thank you for writing this grisly murder mystery. G.Score: 4/5

Not recommendedHorrible story no hero, no love story. Just a abduction, rape murders and getting story after. The end .. Thanks for that wasted hours - you can read a book and it can make you feel happy, sad this just leaves you feeling upset with whole story and author .....Score: 1/5

Wonderful bookA great book with complex characters, compelling lead characters who have distinctive personalities in a realistic setting. I especially liked the main character, who somehow remained likeable through fits of temper and snap judgments - probably by having the sense to realise when he’s made a mistake. The plot was one of the best of mysteries I have read, each crime given the right consideration for how serious they are - I have read others that simply reference murder and rape for the shock value rather than contextualising them as the horrific crimes they are, this one was great for this. If you are expecting a light hearted fluff piece where a Miss Marple type character bustles through a trivial mystery without gravitas or danger, you probably won’t appreciate this book..Score: 5/5
