Review: The Prime Minister’s Secret Agent (Maggie Hope Mystery #4) by Susan Elia MacNeal

Maggie Hope has been under the spell of the ‘black dog’ for what seems like an eternity.

Her depression and post traumatic stress are taking over her life.

She can hardly remember what life was like before she became a spy and had her life turned upside down.

She’s been throwing herself into her work as a trainer at an elite spy institute in Scotland, trying to escape the ‘black dog’.

Maggie has nothing to distract her but her work. John Sterling and her are not on speaking terms, her mother faces death at the Tower of London, and as a spy she doesn’t have ‘friends’ that she can talk to either.

Depressed and alone, Maggie knows she needs to start moving on and getting it together but she just isn’t sure how.

Review: The Bone Church by Victoria Dougherty

I recently had the pleasure of reading quite a few historic thrillers. It’s kind of a new genre for me but books like The Bookman’s Tale and The Lincoln Myth have piqued my interest and made me want to give the genre a shot .

I have also started reading a lot of spy novels as well, so when The Bone Church came around for review I couldn’t resist the unique combo of spy novel and historic thriller!

Wartime Prague is the stage where our novel is set. A pair of fugitive lovers, Felix Andel and Magdalena Ruza, make a bargain with a Catholic cardinal in 1956 to smuggle a woman from Czechoslovakia. The other half of this complex tale is set in German-occupied Prague during WWII.

Magdalena is a Jew while Felix is a gentile. They work underground as resistance or freedom fighters where there is an assassination plot in the works. With the end of WWII and the Nazi party rule in Prague, it seems like life for the Jews as well as the gypsies, will improve. However a new power is ripe to take over the war torn Eastern European country.

Here is a special feature for my follower on the east coast, especially in the Boston area!

Last year I read and reviewed CASCADE by Maryanne O’Hara and absolutely loved it! I was thrilled to learn that it was selected as the book of the month for The Globe’s Book Club!

Back in June, The Pulitzer-Prize winning Boston Globe announced that it has launched the Globe Book Club, a community forum that will enable book lovers across New England to read a novel together and dig into the book’s theme and origin story, through curated conversations online and at events.

The first title, chosen in a public poll, is ‘Cascade’ by Massachusetts author Maryanne O’Hara.
