Do you like regency romance? Are you a fan of mysteries? If you say, "yes" to both, then you're in luck. The Debutante's Code by Erica Vetsch is a lot of both – a clean regency with a touch of romance and hints of much more to come AND a mystery, complete with clues, spies, thefts, and a handsome young investigator with a lot to prove. Listen while Rebecca Yauger and Rebecca Reed discuss the book from both a reader's and writer's viewpoint and see if this first book in a series would be a good fit for you. We also discuss the audiobook, so if you prefer to consume your novels by ear, we'll let you know if the narrator is a help or hindrance to the telling of the story.  If you enjoy this episode, check out our other review and please like and review this podcast on your favorite platform.
