    I've received an eARC at no cost for the author. Murder in St. Giles was my first Captain Lacey?s book ? and I can?t wait to read the other books! Although I do like mysteries, I usually end up a bit disappointed because I can tell right away who did what (in this case, who k...

    Murder in St. Giles by Ashley Gardner is book 13 of the Captain Lacey Mysteries. It is by far my favorite of the series. Ms. Gardner has done an excellent job in telling the story. It is a roller coaster ride from the start. I received an advance readers copy in exchange for an honest ...

    I loved this book! It was so refreshing. Why you ask? First - it?s 13th in the series and I have not read any others, but I want to after reading this one. Second, it was a good old-fashioned mystery. I didn?t think anyone wrote those anymore. It?s like a younger, better looking ...

    Captain Lacey becomes involved in multiple events in Murder in St. Giles. First one is a good event. His daughter is arriving and will be having her season. (While this is good there is a problem daughter is keeping form Lacey and wife.) A Cousin of Donata's late husband is trying to t...

    I'm a Captain Lacey fan and have waited eagerly for this most recent of his adventures. I'm glad he's back in England and a little sad that this book doesn't spend more time with some of my favorite characters (his wife, Lady B, and his daughter, who is making her debut). His wife is b...

    Before reading this book I re read the first book of the series. I was reminded how much Captain Lacey has changed since the series began. There are no episodes of depression in this book, and that is because Captain Lacey is married, has a baby daughter, has found and reconciled with ...

    I have read many series when as the books go on, the stories become tired, the characters predictable and the story plots repetitive. If you wonder if Ashley Gardner?s 13th book of Captain Lacey Regency Mysteries would shows signs of a strained tiredness, you will be overjoyed that y...

    London, 1819: Captain Lacey is summoned to St Giles by Mrs Brewster, wife of his bodyguard, about a murder of a pugilist & he must find a killer before Brewster is arrested for the crime. This is made difficult because Donata's late husband?s odious cousin Stanton St John has m...

    This is the first Captain Lacey Regency mystery for me and I am now a big fan of the series and any historical mystery set in the nineteenth century. Gabriel Lacey searches for the murderer of Finch because he wants to prove that Brewster did not kill his former brother in law. Cap...

    Another fabulous mystery I love the Captain Lacey series and eagerly awaited this book like a visit from an old friend. And that's just how it felt as soon as I started reading. The setting as always supremely realistic and the historical details were top notch. I love how the chara...

    Another good entry in this Regency mystery series (no. 13). Although this one was a bit too convoluted, I liked that all the secondary characters in the ensemble cast were present...at this point, it is very much the troupe of interesting personalities that keep me engaged in these mys...

    Book 13 in the Captain Lacey Regency Mysteries! Yay! This one is set mainly in London, with all the usual characters. More to come after this! ...

    First Sentence: I entered the house on South Audley Street one early April morning to hear my wife shouting. Brewster, bodyguard to Captain Lacey, has found his brother-in-law, Jack Finch, murdered. Afraid of being accused himself, he applies to Lacey for his help in finding the tru...

    (Maybe 3.5 stars) There's nothing I like better than a good bargain and that may be part of the reason I've been a fan of the Captain Lacey Regency mysteries since the very first book. But to be a bargain there has to be quality, in addition to a comfortable price, and these 13 books a...

    This one got a bit frenetic at times, with practically every character ever introduced in the series to date making at least a brief appearance, plus a few more additions for good measure. It is a good bunch of characters to spend time with, however, and I like the implication that the...

    FINAL DECISION: Very enjoyable entry in the series. This one is more mystery than personal but is an interesting jaunt with plenty of appearances by the cast of characters in the series. THE STORY: Captain Lacey is called to look at a body in St. Giles by Brewster (who is the bodygu...

    Over the course of this now thirteen book series set in Regency England, the Captain Lacy mysteries have become a personal favorite. When we first met Gabriel Lacey, he is a half-pay officer living in reduced circumstances in a dodgy London neighborhood. Gravely wounded in the Peninsul...

    I've received an eARC at no cost for the author. Murder in St. Giles was my first Captain Lacey?s book ? and I can?t wait to read the other books! Although I do like mysteries, I usually end up a bit disappointed because I can tell right away who did what (in this case, who k...

    Murder in St. Giles by Ashley Gardner is book 13 of the Captain Lacey Mysteries. It is by far my favorite of the series. Ms. Gardner has done an excellent job in telling the story. It is a roller coaster ride from the start. I received an advance readers copy in exchange for an honest ...

    Always a pleasure! ...

    I read two Regency era mysteries, this one and the Sebastian St. Cyr series. This series has the edge, because of Captain Lacey, one of my literary crushes. This installation was great, as always! I <3 Captain Lacey! ...

    I loved this book! It was so refreshing. Why you ask? First - it?s 13th in the series and I have not read any others, but I want to after reading this one. Second, it was a good old-fashioned mystery. I didn?t think anyone wrote those anymore. It?s like a younger, better looking ...

    Captain Lacey becomes involved in multiple events in Murder in St. Giles. First one is a good event. His daughter is arriving and will be having her season. (While this is good there is a problem daughter is keeping form Lacey and wife.) A Cousin of Donata's late husband is trying to t...

    Another winner. Ashley Gardner/Jennifer Ashley just can?t miss with a Captain Lacey Regency mystery. Book 13 allowed me to spend some quality time with my one and only book boyfriend, Captain Gabriel Lacey. I?ve been thinking about why he is so appealing to me and what I?...

    I'm a Captain Lacey fan and have waited eagerly for this most recent of his adventures. I'm glad he's back in England and a little sad that this book doesn't spend more time with some of my favorite characters (his wife, Lady B, and his daughter, who is making her debut). His wife is b...

    Before reading this book I re read the first book of the series. I was reminded how much Captain Lacey has changed since the series began. There are no episodes of depression in this book, and that is because Captain Lacey is married, has a baby daughter, has found and reconciled with ...

    I have read many series when as the books go on, the stories become tired, the characters predictable and the story plots repetitive. If you wonder if Ashley Gardner?s 13th book of Captain Lacey Regency Mysteries would shows signs of a strained tiredness, you will be overjoyed that y...

    London, 1819: Captain Lacey is summoned to St Giles by Mrs Brewster, wife of his bodyguard, about a murder of a pugilist & he must find a killer before Brewster is arrested for the crime. This is made difficult because Donata's late husband?s odious cousin Stanton St John has m...

    This is the first Captain Lacey Regency mystery for me and I am now a big fan of the series and any historical mystery set in the nineteenth century. Gabriel Lacey searches for the murderer of Finch because he wants to prove that Brewster did not kill his former brother in law. Cap...

    Another fabulous mystery I love the Captain Lacey series and eagerly awaited this book like a visit from an old friend. And that's just how it felt as soon as I started reading. The setting as always supremely realistic and the historical details were top notch. I love how the chara...

    Yet another truly outstanding Captain Lacy mystery from Ashley Gardner aka Jennifer Ashley. Murder in St. Giles keeps you on your toes and guessing who done it until the end! Once again the good and the bad of the Regency period are renderd in fine detail and these characters become mo...

    Captain Lacey does it again I really love this series. The author writes the characters so well, I feel as though I know them. This book is not a stand alone, and you will miss much of the backstory if not reading the series from the beginning. I look forward to more adventures with...

    Another great read I am always happy to pick up a new Captain Lacey book and this one does not disappoint. It is a great page turner and I had trouble putting it down. I can hardly wait to see what Captain Lacey will do in his next book. ...
