Necessary Deception: A Book Review

About The Book:



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 entrée 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 love guide the future.


About The Author:


Laurie Alice Eakes is the author of Lady in the Mist, A Necessary Deception, and several other novels. She won a National Readers Choice Award for Best Regency in 2007 for Family Guardian. Laurie Alice writes full-time from her home in Texas, where she lives with her husband and sundry dogs and cats.


My Review:


A wonderful historical fiction novel that combines mystery and romance, with faith, in an easy to read, well written novel. It is very apparent that a ton of research was done to make the book as historically accurate as possible, and I felt that the characters and story lines flowed well throughout reading Necessary Deception. Definitely a page turner to be sure and I will be reading from this great author again very soon!


This would be a fantastic read for any Christian historical fiction fan in your life, particularly with Christmas just around the corner.


I give this book a huge thumbs up and highly recommend it!
