Short and Sweet Book Reviews # 138 - Going Dark by Monica McCarty, A Conspiracy in Belgravia by Sherry Thomas, The Lady Travelers Guide to Scoundrels and Other Gentlemen by Victoria Alexander

Going Dark (The Lost Platoon, #1)Going Dark by Monica McCarty
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What do you do when you are a Seal group and your mission goes very, very bad. Someone has betrayed you and all the survivors go dark. One goes to Scotland and while trying to stay under the radar finds himself in the middle of a plot to blow up a drilling ship. Oh, and of course there is a woman involved that needs help. A really good start to the new Lost Platoon series. The backstory is covered at the beginning. The character development is first rate and the danger is very real. I loved how the Annie Henderson and Dan Warren (not his real name) learn to work together while protecting Dan's identity. A easy to read and hard to put down book.

I received a free copy of the book in return for an honest review.


A Conspiracy in Belgravia (Lady Sherlock, #2)A Conspiracy in Belgravia by Sherry Thomas
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A new mystery of Charlotte Holmes and a new set of characters walk through the series. It turns out Lord Ingram's wife is up to more than anyone knows. At the same time Charlotte has a marriage proposal - one that would make her more acceptable to society. I am enjoying this series and all of the ends and outs that are part of the plot. I am not that much of a Sherlock Holmes fan so I don't really know or care how it follows or deviates from the original stories. I just like the mystery and suspense that kept me guessing throughout the story.

The Lady Travelers Guide To Scoundrels And Other GentlemenThe Lady Travelers Guide To Scoundrels And Other Gentlemen by Victoria Alexander
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

India Prendergast is off to prove that the Lady Travelers Guide is up to no good. Derek Saunders is determined to prove just the opposite. That leads to a fun romp where India learns some things about herself and how she reacts to other people and Derek learns that there is more to India than he thought. An interesting take on what different people do during difficult times of their lives and how they react to events in their past. A nice start to a new series with a interesting twist to the plot line.
