Happy Release Day, Tracy Grant!

I have been anxiously awaiting The Berkeley Square Affair since I finished The Paris Affair a year ago. I love this series. Teresa Grant (whose name is actually Tracy) has been writing about Malcolm and Suzanne Rannoch since 2011. I found out about Tracy’s books through an “if you like” recommendation on Lauren Willig’s website. When I looked up the first book in series, Vienna Waltz, I saw recommendations from Tasha Alexander, Deanna Raybourn and C.S. Harris, too. All of these authors have their own historical mystery series that I have really enjoyed. Those recommendations (plus the unbelievably gorgeous cover – I mean, look at this thing: Image ) made me start this series, and I’m so glad I did. The Berkeley Square Affair is the fourth full-length novel in the series. There are also two e-novellas.

Here is what Kensington Books has to say about The Berkeley Square Affair:

A stolen treasure may hold the secret to a ghastly crime…

Ensconced in the comfort of their elegant home in London’s Berkeley Square, Malcolm and Suzanne Rannoch are no longer subject to the perilous life of intrigue they led during the Napoleonic Wars. Once an Intelligence Agent, Malcolm is now a Member of Parliament, and Suzanne is one of the city’s most sought-after hostesses. But a late-night visit from a friend who’s been robbed may lure them back into the dangerous world they thought they’d left behind.

Playwright Simon Tanner had in his possession what may be a lost version of Hamlet, and the thieves were prepared to kill for it. But the Rannochs suspect there’s more at stake than a literary gem–for the play may conceal the identity of a Bonapartist spy–along with secrets that could force Malcolm and Suzanne to abandon their newfound peace and confront their own dark past…

This book will be different from the others in the series, because Malcolm and Suzanne have been living abroad, either in Vienna or Paris, for the previous books. England is home for Malcolm, but in a way, it’s behind enemy lines for Suzanne. It will be interesting to see how the change in location and the supposed transition away from intelligence work for both Malcolm and Suzanne will impact the story. Also, I’m excited that Tracy is adding Shakespeare into the mix!
