Maggie Hope is back!


Our series begins with our heroin, Maggie Hope, working in London during the Blitz.  She is an American Mathematician who is asked to work as a personal secretary for Mr Churchill.  This leads to a novel full of coded messages, bombings and betrayal.  As we follow Maggie through this series of spy novels, her involvement with the war effect becomes more and more engrossing.
 
The newest title in this series "Mrs Roosevelt's confidante" sees our covert operative returning to the United States to assist Churchill with dealing with the Americans.
 
Full of family drama, historical facts, intrigue and a small amount of romance to keep things moving, Susan Elia MacNeal's novels are a great read for this weekend.
 
Check our library catalogue for this enjoyable series.
