    Funny And Sweet!

    This is a nice before sleep read. It is witty, the love scenes sweet, and the mystery is plausible.

    Another beautiful love story. Only 190 pages. Once I started reading it, I couldn't put it down. Cheryl really knows how to keep your 
    attention. This is the 2nd book in this series, & was as good as the first. Many things going on. This is a must-read. Enjoy. I know I did.

    In this second installment on Bolen¿s Regent Mysteries, Captain

    In this second installment on Bolen’s Regent Mysteries, Captain Jack Dryden receives another urgent summons to come to the aid of the Prince Regent--on Jack’s wedding day. The call comes after the ceremony, but Jack and Lady Daphne find their wedding night postponed as he reports for duty.

    With Jack caught up in the search for a missing list of British traitors, Daphne agrees to help her sister Cornelia, the Duchess of Lankersham, retrieve the passionate letters she unwisely wrote to a now-dead officer, which have fallen into the hands of a blackmailer.

    As circumstances conspire to delay that longed-for wedding night, Daphne and Jack discover that their investigations are connected, and that their arch-enemy, the French spy d’Arblier, is involved.

    Jack and Daphne’s discreet inquiries are hampered by family misunderstandings, French spies who would prefer to see them both dead, and an eager but incompetent cook.

    Will Jack find the missing papers before d’Arblier finds him? Will Daphne find a competent housekeeper before they starve? And will Daphne and Jack ever have their wedding night?

    Read A Most Discreet Inquiry for the answers, and enjoy another adventure with the most charming of Regency detectives.
