    First Sentence: I entered the house on South Audley Street one early April morning to hear my wife shouting. Brewster, bodyguard to Captain Lacey, has found his brother-in-law, Jack Finch, murdered. Afraid of being accused himself, he applies to Lacey for his help in finding the tru...

    This one got a bit frenetic at times, with practically every character ever introduced in the series to date making at least a brief appearance, plus a few more additions for good measure. It is a good bunch of characters to spend time with, however, and I like the implication that the...

    I read two Regency era mysteries, this one and the Sebastian St. Cyr series. This series has the edge, because of Captain Lacey, one of my literary crushes. This installation was great, as always! I <3 Captain Lacey! ...

    Captain Lacey becomes involved in multiple events in Murder in St. Giles. First one is a good event. His daughter is arriving and will be having her season. (While this is good there is a problem daughter is keeping form Lacey and wife.) A Cousin of Donata's late husband is trying to t...

    I loved this book! It was so refreshing. Why you ask? First - it?s 13th in the series and I have not read any others, but I want to after reading this one. Second, it was a good old-fashioned mystery. I didn?t think anyone wrote those anymore. It?s like a younger, better looking ...

    Over the course of this now thirteen book series set in Regency England, the Captain Lacy mysteries have become a personal favorite. When we first met Gabriel Lacey, he is a half-pay officer living in reduced circumstances in a dodgy London neighborhood. Gravely wounded in the Peninsul...

    I enjoyed this book much more than the previous slog of a story. In Murder in ST. Giles, the story was an enjoyable adventure which was primarily focused on the murder/mystery wherein we see Lacey working tirelessly on behalf of his bodyguard/friend Tommy Brewster. I loved seeing the s...

    Murder in St. Giles by Ashley Gardner is book 13 of the Captain Lacey Mysteries. It is by far my favorite of the series. Ms. Gardner has done an excellent job in telling the story. It is a roller coaster ride from the start. I received an advance readers copy in exchange for an honest ...

    A satisfying mystery and a pleasant visit with much loved characters I do look forward to the latest Captain Lacey book, it's like being visited once a year by adventuresome friends who sit and drink tea and tell me what they've been up to. This latest tale was thoroughly twisty and...

    Another winner. Ashley Gardner/Jennifer Ashley just can?t miss with a Captain Lacey Regency mystery. Book 13 allowed me to spend some quality time with my one and only book boyfriend, Captain Gabriel Lacey. I?ve been thinking about why he is so appealing to me and what I?...

    Another enjoyable Captain Lacey Mystery This was another great read from Ashley Gardner. The Captain Lacey mysteries always have a few twists and turns, and this one was no different. The continuing story of Captain Lacey and his wife just added to my enjoyment of the book, though i...

    I've received an eARC at no cost for the author. Murder in St. Giles was my first Captain Lacey?s book ? and I can?t wait to read the other books! Although I do like mysteries, I usually end up a bit disappointed because I can tell right away who did what (in this case, who k...

    This is the first Captain Lacey Regency mystery for me and I am now a big fan of the series and any historical mystery set in the nineteenth century. Gabriel Lacey searches for the murderer of Finch because he wants to prove that Brewster did not kill his former brother in law. Cap...

    Another good installment in the series. Although the answer to his wife's question seemed obvious from the beginning. I did find the mystery interesting - especially the way she flushed out some of the characters. I imagine we will see Brewster's niece again. ...

    I have read many series when as the books go on, the stories become tired, the characters predictable and the story plots repetitive. If you wonder if Ashley Gardner?s 13th book of Captain Lacey Regency Mysteries would shows signs of a strained tiredness, you will be overjoyed that y...

    -In what at first seems to be a simple case, Captain Lacey is approached by Tommy Brewster, the protector that was assigned to him by James Denis, to accompany him for something urgent. Brewster takes the Captain to St. Giles, which is a very dangerous and disreputable area of London. ...

    I'm a Captain Lacey fan and have waited eagerly for this most recent of his adventures. I'm glad he's back in England and a little sad that this book doesn't spend more time with some of my favorite characters (his wife, Lady B, and his daughter, who is making her debut). His wife is b...

    FINAL DECISION: Very enjoyable entry in the series. This one is more mystery than personal but is an interesting jaunt with plenty of appearances by the cast of characters in the series. THE STORY: Captain Lacey is called to look at a body in St. Giles by Brewster (who is the bodygu...

    Another good entry in this Regency mystery series (no. 13). Although this one was a bit too convoluted, I liked that all the secondary characters in the ensemble cast were present...at this point, it is very much the troupe of interesting personalities that keep me engaged in these mys...

    (Maybe 3.5 stars) There's nothing I like better than a good bargain and that may be part of the reason I've been a fan of the Captain Lacey Regency mysteries since the very first book. But to be a bargain there has to be quality, in addition to a comfortable price, and these 13 books a...
