Alfie and Nick continue to be swoony in this Regency mystery
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Oh this had a really interesting premise which cleverly pulled Alfie and Dominick back into the stews of London and their old life.
This gave excellent reasons for the tension to build up not only with the suspense part of the plot, but also with Alfie and Nick’s relationship.
The mystery itself turns out to be a fairly prosaic one, greed and desperation are powerful motivators after all, but it was still enjoyable.
Alfie and Nick continue to be a mix of super swoony, seriously sexy and annoyingly stubborn at times but I truly love them as a pairing.
There’s some super interesting information about Nick’s background revealed towards the end of this book so I’m eager to learn more.
As has been the case with all three books, some excellent research means you get a very clear picture of the time and location the story takes place in.
I hope Sam continues on with Alfie and Nick’s adventures as amateur sleuths.
