Publisher's Summary

Society's most capable housekeeper, Eleanora Quinton, has a problem. Not only does a dead body fall right into the middle of her mistress's ball and her son get kidnapped by nefarious spies for Napoleon, but the only person who can help her also forces her to face her most secret fears. A spy himself, Nathan Black pulls the infallible housekeeper into a cyclone of espionage, intrigue, and danger. But the last thing Eleanora expects when the dead body hits the floor is love with the son of a duke.

Great Story, narrator more of a reader

I really enjoyed the story. Lots of action and surprises. I had in both audio and Kindle. I found the narrator was good, but she more read the story. There was not much variation in different characters' voices. The book is told from multiple POVs, so the lack of distinctive voices had me pausing the audio and going to my Kindle. So the audio on this one was more for convenience to multitask.

Enjoyed this very much!

I enjoyed the story very much and Miss Rachael Beresford's narration. If The only thing that made me wonder was the inclusion of the heroine and other female characters with the work of the war office (historically, that is) but ... this did nothing to detract from my enjoyment. In fact, I'd say it's been one of my favorite historical romance reads (er, listens) in a while. I look forward to delving into more of her series!
