Описание

A diabolical traitor who's always out of reach . . .

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.

    Recipe for Treason is the third in the series and pretty much non-stop action (for a cozy/historical mystery). I was a bit disappointed by the lack of character development in this book, although I enjoyed reading about the budding friendship between Arianna and Sophia. The point of this book is the ongoing pursuit of the master spy Renard and I can point at precisely the moment the author gave away the clue that had me guessing Renard's identity. I won't though, so as not to ruin it for the rest of those readers out there. :) Still, I thought it was very cleverly done and Ms. Penrose did an excellent job with red herrings and diversions too.

    Each chapter has a chocolate recipe, although most seemed a bit to involved for my limited attention span in the kitchen, they looked delicious!
