It was looking a little bleak there for a moment but it turned out there was a good suggestion for us after all. It’s another story (we’ve had quite a few lately) revolving around war. WWI this time. The best stories have spies and this book has more than one. 1531 Entertainment is the suggestion provider and Amazon reviews rate this book at 4.5 stars.
Gripping Sophomore Novel from a Rising Historical Romance Talent
With Britain caught up in WWI, Jack Benningham, heir to the Earl of Stonebrooke, has declared himself a conscientious objector. Instead, he secretly works for the Crown by tracking down German spies on British soil, his wild reputation and society status serving as a foolproof cover.
Blinded by patriotism and concern for her brother on the front lines, wealthy suffragette Grace Mabry will do whatever it takes to assist her country’s cause. When she sneaks into a posh London masquerade ball to hand out white feathers of cowardice, she never imagines the chain of events she’ll set off when she hands a feather to Jack.
And neither of them could anticipate the extent of the danger and betrayal that follows them–or the faith they’ll need to maintain hope.
There was one other good looking suggestion. Sadly, it doesn’t fit within the fiscal guidelines I’ve set for myself, I think I’m already way over budget for this month. It is mighty tempting though. It could be the intriguing cover that has my attention. I’ll share it anyway, for future reference if nothing else.
Mysterious Disappearances Taint the Chicago World’s Fair Step into True Colors — a new series of Historical Stories of Romance and American Crime
While attending the Chicago World’s Fair in 1893, Winnifred Wylde believes she witnessed a woman being kidnapped. She tries to convince her father, an inspector with the Chicago police, to look into reports of mysterious disappearances around the White City. Inspector Wylde tries to dismiss her claims as exaggeration of an overactive imagination, but he eventually concedes to letting her go undercover as secretary to the man in question—if she takes her pistol for protection and Jude Thorpe, a policeman, for bodyguard.
Will she be able to expose H. H. Holmes’s illicit activity, or will Winnifred become his next victim?
Well that’s it for today.
Happy Reading to you all.
