Fascinating Plot

Loosely based on real events involving female spies in 1942 war-torn France.
I mean, seriously, what is there not to love about that?

Even before starting this book I was fascinated with the plot so it didn't take me long to become totally enamored.

The story begins in 1946 following Grace after she finds a set of photographs of women in an abandoned suitcase. Her curiosity gets the best of her and she goes about trying to find the identity of these women.

Honestly, I could have done without Grace's entire storyline. The only purpose she really serves is...well, I don't really know. I would have much rathered this story been told exclusively through the actual women who lived it. The narrative surrounding Grace seemed like an unnecessary distraction from the real heart of the story.

Unlike the majority of historical fiction, this book isn't bogged down with a lot of extraneous details that turn what should be a 300 page story into a 500 page paperweight. This is a super fast read compared to most others in this genre. I have to say that the first half of the book was more compelling than the second but overall it was a very enjoyable read.

Thank you Kim with Harlequin Books for sending me an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
