    Great Start to a Series

    Review I really enjoyed reading this historical mystery. The setting is in Pre-World War 2 England which really works well with the spy/mystery aspect of the story. My favorite character was the main character, Catherine. I love that she has the strength and courage to go against society rules to seek out happiness. I also like the supporting characters of Annie, Aunt Lydia, and Thomas all of which have strong likable personalities. This is a well-written book with well-paced suspense interwoven into the lives of these characters. This is a great start to a new series, the only thing I had a problem with was the prologue (I just kept getting distracted but the info it supplies comes into play later in the book) after I got past it I couldn’t put the book down. I really enjoyed the spy aspect of the mystery. I would recommend this book to historical and cozy mystery lovers alike. I received this book from Netgallery. All thoughts and opinions are my own and in no way have been influenced.

    Excellent Period Piece

    This is the first book ofMs Thomas I have read and it was a treat. The detail and treatment of this gentle spy yarn was well rounded and kept you guessing. I was born just after the war and some visits to old aunts in the country were very like the household described. Although not so wealthy the echoes of Victorian manners were there. I look forward to reading the next in the series.

    Suspenseful

    Accurate display of historical events leading up to WW2. Complex characters and storyline. Well written. I will continue to read her series.

    Enjoyable book

    3.5 stars I enjoyed this book and I’m hoping this will become a new series. This first book was more about situational and character developments. This story occurs right before the beginning of WWII, in England. It involves espionage, secrets and a “Who done it” mystery. Catherine Carlisle is caught in a loveless marriage and feels trapped until a friend asks her to switch some of her husband’s business papers in order to confuse the Germans. A murder, accusations, spies... Catherine finds herself involved in this melange and it gives her life a purpose. It’s a good story however, I felt that it lacks authenticity and believable characters. The characters are on the “spoofy “ side of things. For this reason I would call it “My bubble gum for the brain”. The book is well written, easy to read, fast pace and enjoyable.

    The silent woman

    Light, pleasant read about England's priviledged class and a spy network on the brink of WW2.
