After a few glitches, I finally am listening to the preliminary audio files for the first Capt. Lacey mystery, Hanover Square Affair. They’re absolutely wonderful! The narrator I chose has a fantastic array of accents–Capt. Lacey, Grenville, Denis–are spot on. It’s as though the voices I heard in my head when writing the book have come to life!
I’ll be finishing the listen in the next couple of days and submitting the files for final production. I’m not sure how long that takes, but I’ll post an alert when the audio is done. And hopefully I can get the next books in to production as well!
I am plugging away at Grosvenor Square! Am looking at a summer release, and I’ll try to set up pre-orders. Will let everyone know when that happens.
Captain Lacey is one of my favorite characters. I love the books and all the supporting characters I as well. Grenville and Denis especially. Having a new book to look forward to will make summer break special.
I stumbled via Book Bub into the bittersweet, honor-driven life of Captain Lacey this evening and enjoyed my time with him, away from my own life and times immensely. I plan to read the rest of the series in the order in which they were written/published.
The story returned me to an earlier, (much younger-I’m now 72) more idealistic period in my reading life when heros were honorable to a fault, and displayed this admirable quality through ‘thick and thin’ and who dispite having endured considerable physical and mental trauma in their own past, rose, as does Lacey, to heroic action on behalf of vulnerable and beleaguered individuals around them.
The fact that the rescues accomplished by these erstwhile heroes (including Lacey) require considerable unraveling of a mystery compounds the reader’s enjoyment in the tale.
Altogether a deliciously engaging tale for a winter’s night, or for any night’s read.
Thank you, Nancy; I’m glad you enjoyed it! No worries about leaving your comment on this particular post. Your comments are welcome anywhere! Thank you so much for your kind words about Captain Lacey.
