    It's been a number of years since Tracy Grant's beloved books featuring Charles and Melanie Fraser hit the scene. Since then other authors (Deanna Raybourn, Tasha Alexander) have picked up the slack with great historical mysteries that follow the romantic progress of the leads. What se...

    '"The good of the people is the chief law"-Cicero' This is the third book chronologically about Charles and Melanie Fraser. There are several books about their alternate selves, Malcolm and Suzanne Rannoch, in a parallel universe that are chronologically before this book, or any o...

    A great sequel to Secrets of a Lady, taking place at the beginning of 1820, a few months after the events of that novel ended. Charles and Mélanie Fraser, one of the most fashionable couples in London, are a attending a masqued ball hosted by close friends. The party, however, soo...

    Charles and Melanie, not Malcolm and Suzanne . . . are the heroes of this story. But sleuths, lovers, and parents by any other names would act the same. So it makes little difference, right? that these great characters have one name in one but another name in the next book. It helps t...

    Lies within lies within lies. I'm a reader or historicals and regencies, and I felt that this novel did a good job with the era, but the further I read the more I was intrigued with the skill with which the author weaves her web of lies. The story is presented as the sequential happeni...

    Fantastic follow up to Secrets of a Lady! The events of this book take place a couple of months after the conclusion of Secrets of a Lady, and Charles and Mélanie have barely had time to catch their breath from that ordeal when they are asked to investigate a murder that took place...

    It has been quite a while waiting for this book, and it was a pleasure to sink back into Tracy Grant's complex world of Regency intrigue. I love how things were not always what they appear to be at first glance, and how Ms Grant peels away the layers of the various relationships in ...

    I love this series by Tracy Grant. What I liked in this installment: 1. The challenges that Charles and Melanie face confronting her past and how Charles deals with it. 2. The plot. There were turns left and right and underhanded double dealings all over the place. 3. Enjoyed the...

    I've been waiting for another Charles and Melanie book from Tracy Grant. I loved the first two, Daughter of the Game and Beneath a Silent Moon - both on my keeper shelf. This book did not disappoint. My only caveat is that I wouldn't recommend starting the series with this book. Rea...

    Still well-written, but it's harder to get past the improbabilities I enjoyed the story, but was struggling a great deal with Grant's decision to make Roth, a Bow Street runner, friends with aristocrat Charles and his wife Melanie. Melanie's desperate-seeming choice in the last book...

    This was another fast-paced romp through England in the aftermath of the Napoleonic Wars. I'm very glad that I'm reading these in order, so that some of the events referred to in this were fresh in my mind (even if they happened years before in the timeline). There were a few formattin...

    I am glad to be done with this book. It is only available in electronic format and I wonder if that has anything to do with the rampant typos and errors. I found them to be very distracting. That said, the story was fast paced and full of twists. Perhaps a bit too full of twists and tu...

    I enjoyed this book. It is a spy novel that takes place in London (where else could you possibly set a good mystery!) Charles and Melanie are husband and wife. This is not the first book in their series, and I am curious about the before. Needless to say they have 'baggage' that they a...

    Exciting read. The Mask of Night was a fast-paced story that kept this reader from putting it down. it was very complex with it's many characters and storyline. A few times I found myself rereading paragraphs to make sure of what I had read. I really enjoyed this book in spite of th...

    Again, loved this installment of the Charles/Melanie Fraser series. I feel like I need a character list to keep track of everyone and their relations. If I hadn't read the previous books, I would have been lost. ...

    I am frustrated that this series is not published in chronological order especially since some of the secondary characters are reappearing. I enjoy the plot and am barely able to grapple through the twists and turns. ...

    Another great read although this particular story appears to be a direct sequel to Secrets of a Lady as the characters are once again named Charles and Melanie Frazer and the events take place approximately two months after the action in that novel. ...

    So glad I started reading this series, this story was my favourite since Secrets of a Lady. I loved the cast of characters she has created. I look forward to continuing to read this series. ...

    ebook/ Sequel to Daughter of the Game/Secrets of a Lady. I especially enjoyed the tension between Charles and Melanie as they continue to rebuild the trust between them. ...

    Really enjoy reading Tracy Grant series featuring Charles and Melanie Fraser. Wonderful characters. Hope she will continue this series. ...

    I really like this series, but I was sorry that it had to be solved by the clairvoyant powers of Melanie, out of the blue. ...

    I love this series by Tracy Grant. What I liked in this installment: 1. The challenges that Charles and Melanie face confronting her past and how Charles deals with it. 2. The plot. There were turns left and right and underhanded double dealings all over the place. 3. Enjoyed the...

    I've been waiting for another Charles and Melanie book from Tracy Grant. I loved the first two, Daughter of the Game and Beneath a Silent Moon - both on my keeper shelf. This book did not disappoint. My only caveat is that I wouldn't recommend starting the series with this book. Rea...

    Still well-written, but it's harder to get past the improbabilities I enjoyed the story, but was struggling a great deal with Grant's decision to make Roth, a Bow Street runner, friends with aristocrat Charles and his wife Melanie. Melanie's desperate-seeming choice in the last book...

    This was another fast-paced romp through England in the aftermath of the Napoleonic Wars. I'm very glad that I'm reading these in order, so that some of the events referred to in this were fresh in my mind (even if they happened years before in the timeline). There were a few formattin...

    I am glad to be done with this book. It is only available in electronic format and I wonder if that has anything to do with the rampant typos and errors. I found them to be very distracting. That said, the story was fast paced and full of twists. Perhaps a bit too full of twists and tu...

    I enjoyed this book. It is a spy novel that takes place in London (where else could you possibly set a good mystery!) Charles and Melanie are husband and wife. This is not the first book in their series, and I am curious about the before. Needless to say they have 'baggage' that they a...

    Exciting read. The Mask of Night was a fast-paced story that kept this reader from putting it down. it was very complex with it's many characters and storyline. A few times I found myself rereading paragraphs to make sure of what I had read. I really enjoyed this book in spite of th...

    Again, loved this installment of the Charles/Melanie Fraser series. I feel like I need a character list to keep track of everyone and their relations. If I hadn't read the previous books, I would have been lost. ...

    I am frustrated that this series is not published in chronological order especially since some of the secondary characters are reappearing. I enjoy the plot and am barely able to grapple through the twists and turns. ...

    Another great read although this particular story appears to be a direct sequel to Secrets of a Lady as the characters are once again named Charles and Melanie Frazer and the events take place approximately two months after the action in that novel. ...

    So glad I started reading this series, this story was my favourite since Secrets of a Lady. I loved the cast of characters she has created. I look forward to continuing to read this series. ...

    I love this series by Tracy Grant. What I liked in this installment: 1. The challenges that Charles and Melanie face confronting her past and how Charles deals with it. 2. The plot. There were turns left and right and underhanded double dealings all over the place. 3. Enjoyed the...

    I've been waiting for another Charles and Melanie book from Tracy Grant. I loved the first two, Daughter of the Game and Beneath a Silent Moon - both on my keeper shelf. This book did not disappoint. My only caveat is that I wouldn't recommend starting the series with this book. Rea...

    Still well-written, but it's harder to get past the improbabilities I enjoyed the story, but was struggling a great deal with Grant's decision to make Roth, a Bow Street runner, friends with aristocrat Charles and his wife Melanie. Melanie's desperate-seeming choice in the last book...

    This was another fast-paced romp through England in the aftermath of the Napoleonic Wars. I'm very glad that I'm reading these in order, so that some of the events referred to in this were fresh in my mind (even if they happened years before in the timeline). There were a few formattin...

    I am glad to be done with this book. It is only available in electronic format and I wonder if that has anything to do with the rampant typos and errors. I found them to be very distracting. That said, the story was fast paced and full of twists. Perhaps a bit too full of twists and tu...

    I enjoyed this book. It is a spy novel that takes place in London (where else could you possibly set a good mystery!) Charles and Melanie are husband and wife. This is not the first book in their series, and I am curious about the before. Needless to say they have 'baggage' that they a...

    Exciting read. The Mask of Night was a fast-paced story that kept this reader from putting it down. it was very complex with it's many characters and storyline. A few times I found myself rereading paragraphs to make sure of what I had read. I really enjoyed this book in spite of th...

    Again, loved this installment of the Charles/Melanie Fraser series. I feel like I need a character list to keep track of everyone and their relations. If I hadn't read the previous books, I would have been lost. ...

    I am frustrated that this series is not published in chronological order especially since some of the secondary characters are reappearing. I enjoy the plot and am barely able to grapple through the twists and turns. ...

    Another great read although this particular story appears to be a direct sequel to Secrets of a Lady as the characters are once again named Charles and Melanie Frazer and the events take place approximately two months after the action in that novel. ...

    So glad I started reading this series, this story was my favourite since Secrets of a Lady. I loved the cast of characters she has created. I look forward to continuing to read this series. ...

    ebook/ Sequel to Daughter of the Game/Secrets of a Lady. I especially enjoyed the tension between Charles and Melanie as they continue to rebuild the trust between them. ...

    Really enjoy reading Tracy Grant series featuring Charles and Melanie Fraser. Wonderful characters. Hope she will continue this series. ...

    I really like this series, but I was sorry that it had to be solved by the clairvoyant powers of Melanie, out of the blue. ...

    Loved this book as much as Tracy Grant's others. She has a knack for creating interesting and intriguing characters as well as plots that twist and turn until the end. ...

    Like the story, like the characters, but for heaven's sake, is it that hard to use spell check? And grammar check? The zillions of typos and missing words had me desperate for a red pencil.... ...

    I love all of Tracy Grant's Charles and Melanie novels, but this ebook doesn't seem to be available in Canada. I guess I'll have to be patient. :( ...

    Good suspense! Another great Melanie and Charles Fraser novel. ...

    It's been a number of years since Tracy Grant's beloved books featuring Charles and Melanie Fraser hit the scene. Since then other authors (Deanna Raybourn, Tasha Alexander) have picked up the slack with great historical mysteries that follow the romantic progress of the leads. What se...

    Charles and Melanie, not Malcolm and Suzanne . . . are the heroes of this story. But sleuths, lovers, and parents by any other names would act the same. So it makes little difference, right? that these great characters have one name in one but another name in the next book. It helps t...
