This delightful book slowly and carefully brings one into England during the beginning of World War II with interesting characters: The world before women were accepted into the upper echelons of politics; the world of Winston Churchill's office. And suddenly, it becomes a mystery to unwind and evolves into a full-fledged spy novel with just a touch of romance. This was most enjoyable and I will make it a point to follow this series.
Can't give that away. It is, after all, a spy novel.
This was new to me.
I like this book better than most of the other books I have listened to.
It is similar to "Her Royal Spyness". It is set in a similar era, british, female heronie.
The book starts off slow, and it's a little jumpy shirting perspectives. It does address some thought provoking ideologies regarding war that I found interesting.
I do not know.
Maggie. Focused, brave, intelligent, non-selfconcious beauty.
I have not.
None really. Meeting her father is the most moving, but then not very much.
Good plot. Good listen (great reader). Not as crude or violent as other novels of the same genre.Historical references to London at the onset of the war, were interesting.
The three words I would use would be, wonderful. engaging, and thrilling.
This book is fabulous I wouldn't want to compare it to anything. I can't wait for the next book, I love the different view of history.
I loved Maggie Hope. This book made me root for her.
During the expository beginning I just about gave up.
But the story picked up nicely and Our Hero has sundry adventures. A nice action-packed tale once you get in a bit.
An interesting story set in 1940's England. Lots of drama and action. A wonderful look at Mr. Churchill. Definitely worth the price of a credit.
This truly fits in a genre of cozy spy story. Great historical interest and multiple denouements that sustained my interest - I kept thinking the action had peaked and then it picked up again.
Narrator is great, even evoking Churchill's delivery. The story has a few minor flaws, but if you're already accepting that spy activity could be this gentle, overlooking them is not a step much farther to take .
I was slightly annoyed by something that's a pet peeve: an author injecting modern morality and political views into a past era. But it wasn't bad enough to ruin my enjoyment.
I'll read on in the series.
while the book itself was fun, the plot was clunky at times. more than anything what was extremely interesting was the narrator who could not nail down an American accent for the life of her.
Good historical fiction.
When Paige (Clair) and Murphy killed (?) the dancer.
I loved it. It made me both laugh and cry.
This story made me care about the characters. It was very well done. I can't wait to read the next book.
