Book Review & Giveaway: The Lost Lieutenant by Erica Vetsch

About the Book:

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.

My Thoughts:

The Lost Lieutenant by Erica Vetsch boasts a marriage of convenience, characters harboring secrets, and plenty of villains. As these elements weaved together, the plot moved steadily.  Despite a few predictable moments, I enjoyed the character development that Evan and Diana spurred in each other. With abusive family members, memory loss, and PTSD to contend with, tension laced the couple’s new life together from the start. I especially loved Evan’s healing journey and appreciated the gentle, healing ambiance that kept the story from feeling overly dark or heavy.

The Lost Lieutenant stands as the first installment in Erica Vetsch’s Serendipity and Secrets series. Though the novel functions as a stand-alone, Marcus gets substantial attention in this novel and takes the lead role in the next one. I confess I am curious about him and I’m looking forward to the next book in this series.
