  • The title says it all

    This is a well written, fast paced, and deliciously funny tale of the wartime adventures of a young English lass. This one of those books that I couldn't put down once I had started to read.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Interesting

    Entertaining spy story set mostly in Paris, 1917. Interesting characters including Mata Hari. Lots of laughs. I requested and received a temporary free ebook copy from Level Best Books via NetGalley.

  • Brilliant, Funny and Fascinating! Loved it.

    Such a charming and thrilling read, one I didn't want to end! Seriously, it has everything a stellar book requires yet it is not overdone. The author is very skilled at using historical details (do read the afterword), developing fabulous characters and situations. Additionally, her sense of humour is just incredible. This is one of those books I felt an immediate affinity with. It's non-stop pure enjoyment. The very thought of the next in the series, the third, fills me with anticipation. In 1917, Fiona Figg, a young woman in her 20s, is a file clerk who has done spying jobs on the side. Well, in this book she has spying down pat! Not only that but she is quirky, clever and much more than fluff. She has lost her husband so has had to deal with intense grief and this depth contributes to her character. To her delight she is sent to Paris to uncover secrets about Frederick Fredricks and packs disguises, just in case. Things go awry early on her trip but her quick thinking and friend Clifford wrangle her out of dicey messes, time after time in several locales within Paris. Beautifully-written unexpected twists and turns abound like crazy as she inveigles and discovers far more than Fredrick's dealings. The subplots are just as fabulous. I really get a sense of the characters in this thoughtful book. Despite the challenges, Fiona doesn't take herself too seriously, yet there is so much substance everywhere you look. Each personality is portrayed so very well, even the minor ones. If you don't pick up this Historical Fiction book, you truly are missing out. It is such a treat! You will find mysteries and touches of romance punctuated by incredible historical details which made me feel I was back in Paris. Food, building and clothing descriptions are lovely. My sincere thank you to Level Best Books and NetGalley for providing me with an ARC of this wonderful book in exchange for an honest review. Much appreciated.

  • Fiona is fun

    This is the second book in the Fiona Figg series and in it the protagonist continues where she left off in her quest in the first novel to identify a spy working for Germany in World War I. Fiona, the kind of employee that an employer can’t control, once again flies by the seat of her pants, takes chances, and even when she wasn’t optimistic of success she would not give up. When I read the first novel, Betrayal at Ravenswick, I thought for a while that the story and the heroine were too improbable but as I continued to read and allowed myself the willing suspension of disbelief I was able to enjoy Fiona’s behaviour and cheer for her.

    Thanks for your feedback!
