The 13th Lord Ramage novel.
Well, that moved quickly. Ramage is on his honeymoon in France when the peace collapses. First they have to escape, then they have to avoid being shot by the returning Brest blockade fleet, then Ramage has to rescue the Calypsos from their new, insane, captain, then they're sent off to catch the prisoners being sent from France to an unhealthy prison island (including the friend they were visiting in France). It's a succession of smaller problems, rather than one or two big ones as is more often used in a novel. Still a lot of fun to read.
