Three years into the Great War, England’s greatest asset is their intelligence network—field agents risking their lives to gather information, and codebreakers able to crack every German telegram. Margot De Wilde thrives in the environment of the secretive Room 40, where she spends her days deciphering intercepted messages. But when her world is turned upside down by an unexpected loss, for the first time in her life numbers aren’t enough.
Drake Elton returns wounded from the field, followed by an enemy that just won’t give up. He’s smitten quickly by the too-intelligent Margot, but how to convince a girl who lives entirely in her mind that sometimes life’s answers lie in the heart?
Amidst biological warfare, encrypted letters, and a German spy who wants to destroy not just them, but others they love, Margot and Drake will have to work together to save them all from the very secrets that brought them together.
Why did I wait so long to read this book?!? It was fabulous!!!! I am most definitely going to be reading more of Ms. White’s book! Her writing, characters, storylines, accurate history, and anything else that this gorgeous book contained was amazing. I love that the cover ties perfectly in with this story. I literally was fangirling once I discovered the tie in!
I loved every single one of the characters! Margot was amazing and though we are complete opposites, I still feel in love with her character and would love to meet someone like her in real life. Drake was also amazing! He was the perfect male lead for this book. I could gush on and on about him but I won’t! 😉 Dot was another character that I would love to meet in real life. I loved seeing her character growth throughout this book!! Though, I was uneasy about Cam at first…I cannot wait to read his story in the next book!!!!
I love historical fiction books that are set during the world wars and this book has made me fall in love with this type of historical fiction again!
