    She has done it AGAIN!! Teresa (Tracy) Grant has written another

    She has done it AGAIN!! Teresa (Tracy) Grant has written another fabulous entry in her Malcolm/Suzanne (Melanie/Charles) series.In The Paris Affair, set in post Waterloo Paris, where Royalists are celebrating and Bonapartists are waiting to be hauled off to prison, Suzanne and Malcolm are sent to meet with a French informant who is, inconveniently, stabbed during the brawl that erupts at the bar where they are meeting.
    Fans of this series know that Malcolm, a British aristocrat, diplomat and spy, and Suzanne, maybe a French-Spanish aristocrat whose family was destroyed by Napoleon - or maybe not - are experts in solving mysteries.  Here, while investigating the informant's murder, they stumble into a web of lies and betrayals, secret children and secret loves, affairs, assassination plots, false identities and more. And, as Grant's fans know, she also delves deeply into more that just the mystery at hand.  Her characters have conflicted loyalties. Grant is not afraid to create characters with flaws. Suzanne has a secret past which requires her to lie to Malcolm.  And Malcolm's own issues promise secrets of his own.
    If you are already a fan, you will really love this new book.  If you have not yet been introduced to the series, you can read this book, or go back to HIS SPANISH BRIDE (how Malcolm and Suzanne meet), on through VIENNA WALTZ (intrigue at the Congress of Vienna), IMPERIAL SCANDAL (Napoleon has escaped from Elba and it's war AGAIN), then THE PARIS AFFAIR. Then, move on to the other three books in the series, set back in England where the craziness of home is a match for the craziness of post-Napoleonic Europe. Enjoy!!!

    Just when you think she has outdone herself, Teresa (Tracy) Gran

    Just when you think she has outdone herself, Teresa (Tracy) Grant raises her own benchmark up another notch. The amazing thing about "The Paris Affair" is that is a "prequel" and, even though you KNOW from the books that take place later in time how things will turn out for the personalities, it is still a page turner. Extremely well researched, and flesh and blood characters with flaws and foibles, which are her hallmark, The Paris Affair is excellent. I read it as soon as it came out then read the preceding books and this one again. It only gets better. Although knowing the characters well from other months and years of their lives, this continues to add fuel to the fires that you know are coming in later books. Readers who like any combination of Regency England, Revolutionary/Bonaparte's France, and Europe, any historic love affair, historic mysteries/spy stories, this one is for you.

    Pretty readable

    A readable story that makes you want to keep turning pages - and the historical references were pretty good. Maybe a little poetic license but not a lot. Good read.
