Book Review: General Well'ngone In Love: A Jewish Regency Story

 Summary: There’s trouble afoot in Regency London’s Jewish community, and no one to stop the crimes—until wealthy-widower-turned-sleuth Mr. Ezra Melamed teams up with an unlikely pair: General Well’ngone and the Earl of Gravel Lane, the leaders of a gang of young Jewish pickpockets. 
  In this short Jewish Regency mystery story set during the Frost Fair of 1814, a recently orphaned boy disappears, seemingly off the face of the earth. Mr. Melamed enlists the aid of General Well’ngone, who has his own reason for wishing to find the missing child—the General has fallen in love with the boy’s older sister. 

Thoughts: This was one of the many little books that had lain for far too long on my phone, forgotten and ignored in favor of more physical books (paperbacks mostly). Having recently decided I needed to actually read my crazily large stash of books gathering virtual dust, I embarked with this little story and was amazed. It was a great read despite being very short. I absolutely adored the characters and the plot was interesting, mind you I had no idea what this book was about when I rediscovered and started reading it. But I thoroughly enjoyed every bit of it! As a side note, don't let the title fool you, the romance was a ver small part of this very small book.

Content: Well, a little boy is kidnapped and there are a few rather disturbing descriptions of what might have happened to him. It's probably not a fun read for small children. Otherwise a clean and wonderful read, probably curled up with a cup of your favorite warm beverage.
