Genre: Historical Fiction, Mystery
Description: World War II rages on across Europe, but Maggie Hope has finally found a moment of rest on the pastoral coast of western Scotland. Home from an undercover mission in Berlin, she settles down to teach at her old spy training camp, and to heal from scars on both her body and heart. Yet instead of enjoying the quieter pace of life, Maggie is quickly drawn into another web of danger and intrigue. When three ballerinas fall strangely ill in Glasgow—including one of Maggie’s dearest friends—Maggie partners with MI-5 to uncover the truth behind their unusual symptoms. What she finds points to a series of poisonings that may expose shocking government secrets and put countless British lives at stake. But it’s the fight brewing in the Pacific that will forever change the course of the war—and indelibly shape Maggie’s fate. (via Goodreads)
Thoughts: Much like the previous three books, this was a nice easy read. While the book followed a formula, it still was a fascinating read nonetheless. It was nice to read something that was familiar and was a bit of a break from reading material that was emotionally draining for me or I was unable to make sense of.
Bottom line: This was an enjoyable read for me and am looking forward to reading the next book in the series. If you have enjoyed the previous books in the series, you will likely enjoy this one as well. Highly recommended.
