The Debutante’s Code by Erica Vetsch

About The Book:

Newly returned from finishing school, Lady Juliette Thorndike is ready to debut in London society. Due to her years away, she hasn’t spent much time with her parents, and sees them only as the flighty, dilettante couple the other nobles love.But when they disappear, she discovers she never really knew them at all. They’ve been living double lives as government spies–and they’re only the latest in a long history of espionage that is the family’s legacy.

Now Lady Juliette is determined to continue their work. Mentored by her uncle, she plunges into the dangerous world of spies. From the glittering ballrooms of London to the fox hunts, regattas, and soirees of country high society, she must chase down hidden clues, solve the mysterious code her parents left behind, and stay out of danger. All the while, she has to keep her endeavors a secret from her best friend and her suitors–not to mention the nosy, irritatingly handsome Bow Street runner, who suspects her of a daring theft.

Can Lady Juliette outwit her enemies and complete her parents’ last mission?

My Thoughts:

I love the combination of Regency and mystery! I felt like this story had a lot of components that I look for in a great read, however I found myself not as invested in the mystery or characters as I wanted to be. The secret agent angle was really fast and I wanted to see more development of skills and the Juliette as a character in order to really get behind her new clandestine occupation. I had a hard time accepting Juliettes swift ability to decipher codes and solve puzzles. I really enjoy a hero who is an underdog and I appreciated Daniel’s hard work ethic. The characters were likable and there is a mystery thread in the book that holds a certain amount of intrigue. I would have loved more character interaction from Danielle and Juliette earlier in turn book. This one is an easy read that ticks several boxes for fans of historical with a bit of mystery!

*I was given a copy of this book by the Publisher, however I was not required to write a positive review.
