Received for Review (NetGalley)

I enjoy stories set in the Elizabethan era and this one did not disappoint. Sir Simon Marcheford is a spy for Queen Elizabeth who would like to retire to his estate with his younger sister, Judith, who is residing at Elizabeth’s court. But the queen has one last mission for her best spies, Simon, Viscount William Sheffield and Tristan Fitzherbert. William and Tristan are sent to Scotland and Simon to Spain, though he ends up in Scotland.

I couldn’t put this book down! The hardest part of writing a review for a book I loved is saying enough to entice you to read it without spoiling the story. When you read one of Regan’s books, you not only get a wonderful story, but accurate historical knowledge of the time period.

What a wonderful anthology! Sometimes in an anthology, there is one story I don’t like as much as the others, but NOT in this case. The four stories are all very good and original. I especially enjoyed the mix of aristocracy and commoners.

What a fun spy versus spy story! Danielle LaCrosse has taken a job as a lady’s maid to Lady Daphne Cavendish but has another life too. She’s never been a maid before but is very good at adapting to a situation. Especially if that job gets her closer to moving her ailing mother out of London.

This is my favorite of Julia London’s The Highland Grooms series. Rabbie Mackenzie is a lost and broken soul after the battle at Culloden Moor that devastated the Highlands. He had not joined the rebels, but was sympathetic to their cause. While his family stayed out of it, much of their land and village was still destroyed by the English.
