Recipe for Treason (Lady Arianna Series #3) by Andrea Penrose

England, 1814. Lady Arianna Hadley and her husband, the Earl of Saybrook, want nothing more than to savor a quiet life embellished by the occasional cup of the finest chocolate. However, when they receive orders to travel to Scotland and capture an elusive traitor, they feel their duty to the Crown must come first.

In a laboratory in Scotland, they discover the corpse of a chemistry professor--and cryptic papers hinting at a dangerous new discovery now in enemy hands. Racing against time, Arianna and Saybrook pursue their most cunning and dangerous adversary yet through a complex network of intrigue involving exotic chocolates, daredevil aviators, a missing inventor, and a secret recipe that must be recovered at any cost...

Recipe For Treason is the third book in the A Lady Arianna Regency Mystery series. Another exciting book in this wonderful series. Earl and Lady Saybrook and Henning, recently returned from Vienna in their search for Renard, are now traveling to Scotland to continue the search. Once they arrive in Scotland their first stop is the laboratory of Prof Girton, a noted scientist. But, they arrive just as he is taking his last breath. They gather some of his notes and reluctantly head back to London. Upon reading the notes and from other information that has been learned, they realize that Renard has plans to send the information for making a very destructive bomb to France. What with Henning having been injured in Scotland, Saybrook, reluctantly ask Sophia, a long time friend is she would be willing to help them with their pursuit of Renard. Then, Lady Saybrook visits a café specializing in Chocolate and learns that hot air balloons are to be used to move the information for making the bomb to France. This leads to a very exciting chase via hot air balloons to prevent the information from landing in France. Can't wait to see where lady and Earl Saybrook will be off to next.

I love this series; all three books have been excellent.  I can hardly put them down.  Nice, easy reads, clean but not dull.  Well written.  I sure hope there are more to come!  I can't wait for their next adventure.
