    Two stories run parallel

    Two plots, two adventures and two love stories run parallel to one another, as best friends Jack Ryder and Harry Feather embark on what turned out to be unexpected adventures. After the death of his father, Jack decides to escape London and visit his mother's home in Ireland, however on the way, when a misadventure occurs, he assures the dying Lord Butterstone to protect his family. Promising to investigate the murder of the Marquess, Jack finds himself not only falling in love with the lovely Lady Ashley, but his planned trip is interrupted when his investigation leads him back to London. On the other hand, Lady Erina and Harry's fathers have colluded together to broker a marriage between their two unwilling children. Erina persuades Harry to allow her to go to Ireland to try and rescue her cousin from a forced marriage, and Harry realises that even if he doesn't want to marry the wild beauty, he cannot allow her to go to Ireland on her own. Danger also meets them face to face and when Harry is injured, Erina realises that her feelings towards him go beyond friendship. I thought the outline of both stories quite interesting and although the love stories were sweet, I found it difficult to relate to the characters and the book did not engage my emotions. Nevertheless, it was pleasant, if not exciting reading. I received this book for free from eBook Discovery. I voluntarily post this review. This is my honest review.

    Murder, Mystery and Romance in the Regency era.

    When I open a novel by Ms. Andersen I know I will enjoy it. Captain Jack Ryder exceeded my expectations. It combines the adventures of Jack and his friend Harry Featherstone, former officers in a Hussar regiment. Napoleon and his armies have been defeated. Jack is in mourning for the duke, his affectionate father, and is exhausted after ‘many hours of lost sleep while his father breathed his last.’ Jack, who was educated at Oxford, received property from the duke and has an adequate fortune. He has seen little of his own country and plans to explore. He will travel on horseback, dressed in plain clothes and take little with him other than his pistol with which he can give a good account of himself. Harry whose father is arranging for him to marry Erin, a wealthy baronet’s daughter, tells Erin, who does not want to marry him, ‘After years in the army I fancy a simple life. An enjoyable book a brandy, my wife with her embroidery at my side. Just looking at you, I can foresee riding to hounds, jumping tall hedges, and dancing till dawn. It fatigues me to think of it.’ When Erin decides to run away to avoid the arranged marriage and visit her cousin in Ireland, who is in trouble, Harry feels obliged to travel with Erin to protect her. In the meantime, at the inn where Jack puts up for the night, fatally wounded Lord Butterstone, his wife and daughter Lady Ashley arrive. Before he dies Butterstone asks Jack to take Lady Butterstone and their beautiful daughter home. I read on, wanting to find out why the dead man was killed, who the murderer was and if a relationship would develop between Jack and Lady Ashley. I also wanted to know how Harry and Erin reacted to each other during their journey. Ms Andersen has created compelling characters in Captain Jack Ryder a novel with danger, mystery, romance and suspense. I look forward to reading the next book in the series about another friend of Jack and Harry, who served in their regiment.
