The Lost Lieutenant by Erica Vetsch - from Kregel Publishing - blog tour & prize pack #giveaway

New Christian Regency Fiction book  for you to check out and a fabulous giveaway for you to enter. 

My thoughts: I enjoyed reading The Lost Lieutenant so much. The characters were delightful and the author fleshed them out beautifully in word pictures you could see in your mind's eye. You could feel their emotions of fear, anxiety, or joy as the story unfolded.

The social mores of the time were well addressed in the narrative clearly defining the distinct clash between social standings based on wealth and rank.

I grieved for Diana for her dreadful life at home with her harsh, unloving father. I cheered on Evan as he endures the effects of his wound in battle.

The sweet romance between Diana and her lieutenant, Evan, was a joy. The reliance on their faith to bring them through their troubles was inspiring.

I truly enjoyed this book and am looking forward to the next in this series. 

About the book: He's doing what he can to save the Prince Regent's life . . . but can he save his new marriage as well?

Evan Eldridge never meant to be a war hero--he just wanted to fight Napoleon for the future of his country. And he certainly didn't think that saving the life of a peer would mean being made the Earl of Whitelock. But when the life you save is dear to the Prince Regent, things can change in a hurry.

Now Evan has a new title, a manor house in shambles, and a stranger for a bride, all thrust upon him by a grateful ruler. What he doesn't have are all his memories. Traumatized as a result of his wounds and bravery on the battlefield, Evan knows there's something he can't quite remember. It's important, dangerous--and if he doesn't recall it in time, will jeopardize not only his marriage but someone's very life.

Readers who enjoy Julie Klassen, Carolyn Miller, and Kristi Ann Hunter will love diving into this brand-new Regency series filled with suspense, aristocratic struggles, and a firm foundation of faith.
