  • Spies, Disguise, and Bad Guys

    I received an ARC of this book to read through NetGalley. All opinions are my own. One Thing Leads to A Lover is the second book in Susanna Craig’s engaging Love and Let Spy series. When one of his fellow agents is compromised, Sir Langley Stanhope, aka Magpie, is sent to retrieve a codebook that the agent passed to an unsuspecting Amanda Bartlett, Countess of Kingston, to avoid it falling into enemy hands. What should have been a simple exchange becomes complicated, and in order to protect Amanda and her family, Major Stanhope becomes part of the household. I enjoyed this story and its twists and turns. While the Amanda, at the beginning of the book, was a passive creature allowing others to walk all over her and control her life, she grew into a much stronger character over the story's arc, as did Sir Langley. Steam Level: Medium Publishing Date: April 6, 2020. #OneThingLeadsToALover #SusannaCraig #KensingtonBooks #LyricalPress #HistoricalRomance #bookstagram #bookstagramer #HistoricalMystery

  • Fun and flirty Regency Spy mystery

    Release date April 6th The second book in the Love and Let Spy series. Amanda is the widowed Countess of Kensington. On her way to get her son a book for his birthday, a spy switches books with her before he can be caught with it. Major Langley Stanhope is told to use his talent as a mimic (nicknamed Magpie) to get the book back from Amanda. When the book is suddenly in someone else’s hands Amanda and Langley find themselves working together to protect Amanda and her sons. But will their fiery attraction cause even more danger? Another great read! This book was fun, funny, sexy, and intriguing. The series is truly a new favorite of mine. I can’t wait to read the next book in this series. *I was provided an ARC by Netgalley and the publisher for my honest review.

  • Regency spy romance

    This was a change of pace from the historicals I usually read. The heroine, Amanda, Countess of Kingsley, was a 32 YO widow, longing to shake up her life after it was constrained by her mother and the co-guardian of her two boys after her husband's death. Major Langley Stanhope, the hero, also known as "Magpie", is a British spy from humble beginnings, with a gift of mimicry, and recently knighted due to his service to the crown as a spy. Amanda and Langley's path cross by sheer happenstance when she accidentally comes into possession of a valuable code book. From there, she gets drawn not only into the adventure she's been looking for, but also into love. This was an enjoyable but forgettable romp. I found Amanda to be quite passive, willing to let her mother and her son's co-guardian, a gentleman friend of her late husband's, push her around and dictate her life. Given the times, I can understand why she acquiesced to the appropriately named Lord Dulsworthy, but I couldn't figure out why in the world she kowtowed so completely to her mother. I kept waiting for her to snap with both of them, but she never did, thus her actions in assisting Langley with his investigation seemed inconsistent with her basic character. Her blooming romance with Langley was sweet but seemed a bit flat. In general, spy historical romances aren't my favorites and that my have affected my opinion also. I did really like Langley though, and appreciated that he wore spectacles and wasn't perfect. My thanks to Netgalley for an advance copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions in this review are my own.

  • Entertaining book

    This was an entertaining, well-written book. Amanda is a widow living a quiet life, when intrigue finds her in the form of a mysterious book and a fascinating stranger, Langley. Danger surrounds them, and still they are drawn to each other. The book was fast-paced, it held my attention and I didn't want to put it down. I enjoyed this book and look forward to reading more books by this author.

  • Fun and interesting

    This was a fun and engaging story. Countess Amanda Bartlett is a young widow, mother of two children, longing for adventure and to get out of the monotony, her opportunity is presented when a book with secret codes arrives to her hand by accident. Langley Stanhope is the spy searching for Amanda's misplaced book, because have important codes for the government. When they meet, the attraction is immediate, and Langley's mission is no longer just to recover the book, but to protect Amanda and her children from possible danger. Amanda and Langley are great characters, likeable, witty and intelligent, also Amanda's son are very funny. The romance was lovely, both characters deserves a happy ending, the mystery made the story interesting and page turner, I just wanted to know what will happen.

    Thanks for your feedback!
