I enjoyed reading this book so much that I quickly put the rest of the series on my wishlist at the library. I loved the character of Maggie Hope; yes, she comes across as a little modern for the time period, but she was also raised in America so she stands out anyway from the rest of the British cast. The plotline was gripping and I was surprised with some of the twists in the story. And the budding romance with John was just the right heat for the first book (I do like a slow burn). I have had the book on my NOOK for years and just never got around to it (I got it off the free section) and now I am kicking myself for not reading it sooner.
