His Majesty's Hope by Susan Elia MacNeal
  

Lovereading view...

The third in a fun melodramatic historical spy series, readers may want to start with Mr Churchill’s Secretary. Maggie Hope has completed her spy training and is being sent on a truly dangerous mission behind enemy lines. Mission complete and her cover perfected, she’s offered a job by a high-ranking Nazi and decides to stay to discover what she can, accidentally uncovering some uncomfortable truths about her own history as well as the Nazi’s evil plans. Fans of historical fiction may be left a little frustrated by some of the inaccuracies and with an American author there are some points that British readers are more likely to notice than those on the other side of the pond but if you can get past that it’s an enjoyable romp.

If you like Susan Elia MacNeal you might also like to read books by Laurie R. Cohen, Jacqueline Winspear and Anne Perry.

Synopsis

His Majesty's Hope by Susan Elia MacNeal

World War II has finally come home to Britain, but it takes more than nightly air raids to rattle intrepid spy and expert code breaker Maggie Hope. After serving as a secret agent to protect Princess Elizabeth at Windsor Castle, Maggie is now an elite member of the Special Operations Executive-a black ops organization designed to aid the British effort abroad-and her first assignment sends her straight into Nazi-controlled Berlin, the very heart of the German war machine. Relying on her quick wit and keen instincts, Maggie infiltrates the highest level of Berlin society, gathering information to pass on to London headquarters. But the secrets she unveils will expose a darker, more dangerous side of the war-and of her own past.
