Twitterature– Princess Elizabeth’s Spy

on July 13, 2013


Here’s what Anne, AKA Modern Mrs Darcy, says about her Twitterature series:

Welcome to the Twitterature link-up! For the lowdown, head over here, or try this Cliff Notes version: this is the place to share short, casual reviews of books you’ve been reading.

She reviews several books each month, but here is my second in 6 months.  Whoo-hoo! (That’s okay. I live to be the poster child of doing the best I can and not being condemned by comparisons and perfectionism!) (Here’s my first.)

Princess Elizabeth's Spy by Susan Elia Macneal

Princess Elizabeth’s Spy by Susan Elia Macneal

Maggie Hope got her start in espionage in the months leading up to WWII as Mr. Churchill’s Secretary. In this second installment, the War has started and she is training to go behind enemy lines. Her excellent command of German and French makes her a prime candidate, but she can’t master the physical training, so she ends up as a tutor for Princess Elizabeth at Windsor Castle. (that’s the Queen, for you non-Royalty freaks lovers) She is disappointed insulted by having to “waste her skills as just a governess” but soon discovers a hotbed of intrigue and danger within the Castle walls!

A wonderful, light read, with a bit of insider info on the Royal Family and enough history to be interesting but not too heavy.

4.5 stars
