Review: "The Lost Lieutenant" by Erica Vetsch

You know how sometimes books are so buzzed about that you have to read them? So many of my bookstagram friends have been raving about The Lost Lieutenant ... and I even featured it in what is one of my personal favorite Instagram photos (the "likes" don't agree, but I still love it!). Since I've been on a Regency kick lately, I decided to squeeze it in between review deadlines, and I'm so glad I did!

He's doing what he can to save the Prince Regent's life . . . but can he save his new marriage as well?

Evan Eldridge never meant to be a war hero--he just wanted to fight Napoleon for the future of his country. And he certainly didn't think that saving the life of a peer would mean being made the Earl of Whitelock. But when the life you save is dear to the Prince Regent, things can change in a hurry.

Now Evan has a new title, a manor house in shambles, and a stranger for a bride, all thrust upon him by a grateful ruler. What he doesn't have are all his memories. Traumatized as a result of his wounds and bravery on the battlefield, Evan knows there's something he can't quite remember. It's important, dangerous--and if he doesn't recall it in time, will jeopardize not only his marriage but someone's very life.

Readers who enjoy Julie Klassen, Carolyn Miller, and Kristi Ann Hunter will love diving into this brand-new Regency series filled with suspense, aristocratic struggles, and a firm foundation of faith.

This book was responsible for a late night/early morning—I simply could not put it down! The book has humor, intrigue, and romance, and it captivated me from the opening pages.

I loved Evan and Diana (and the way they got together was a hoot!), and their romance was so heartwarming. Of course, they both had secrets that could ruin their relationship, but things were resolved quickly enough that I didn't mind too much. Also, this is the first Regency novel I can remember that actually has the Prince Regent as a character (and what a character he is!) ... so that was fun!

The Lost Lieutenant is a fabulous beginning to the Serendipity & Secrets series, and I'm looking forward to the the upcoming books! 4-1/2 stars.
