Thorndike & Swann Regency Mysteries #3

Release Date:

Christian Regency Mystery

Detective Daniel Swann and debutante Juliette Thorndike once again team up to solve a dangerous mystery--while trying to keep their growing romance secret. 

Someone is preying upon the street children of Regency London. They seem to think no one will notice when urchins go missing--and even if they are noticed, who will care? 

Daniel needs to do something about the missing children. But with recent revelations about his past and an unexpected, somewhat unwelcome inheritance to deal with, this is a terrible time to dive back into the seedy underbelly of the crime world. Nevertheless, he's still a Bow Street runner, and his partner Lady Juliette is sensitive to the plight of these wayward youngsters. They're on the case, searching shadowed alleys and coal-drenched streets to find the missing. 

But the tangle of expectation and the dynamics of power cannot be easily ignored, even if there are children in danger. When Daniel's past threatens to overwhelm his future, he will need a miracle and the help of his friends to both apprehend the villain and unravel his tangled family web. And it may be that his new responsibilities demand that he leave the children of the shadows to their terrible fate--or lose everything. 

Erica Vetsch's popular Regency mystery series concludes with a bang, sure to satisfy readers who have hung on every page since book one.

I really enjoy Historical Fiction and the Regency era. I was excited to hear that Author Erica Vetsch is back with a Regency novel, but it is also a Mystery novel. Children of the Shadows by Erica Vetsch is Book 3 in the Thorndike & Swann Regency Mysteries Series. I have read the first 2 books in this series and was excited that Book 3 is now out.

Detective Daniel Swann and debutante Juliette Thorndike are back to solve another mystery. Daniel is concerned about the Street Children of Regency London, they seem to be missing. He really wants to work on this case but he is unsure if he should due to recent news about his past and some current life changes. Daniel and his partner, Juliette, are on the case as Lady Juliette is very caring about the needs of children. They are both searching for the Children until Daniel decides he might need more help to catch the one who is preying on the children. His friends step in to help Daniel to find the children and also to help with his family issues. Will the Children be found safe? Will Daniel and Juliette finally reveal their relationship to their family? 

I truly enjoyed this book and I have to say that this is probably my favorite of the 3 that I have read. I really LOVE that Daniel and Julietter are really concerned about the Children and risk things for their safety.  I really enjoyed watching Daniel and Juliette's relationship really become stronger in Book 3. I also was happy to see that Juliette is ready to share with her parents that she is in love with Daniel. I was really encouraged that the book has a strong Christian Message and is very Faith-Based. I HIGHLY Recommend this to anyone who likes Historical Christian Fiction and Mystery. I am sad that this is the final book in the series! A GREAT SERIES and a GREAT BOOK!
