A Mystery Brought Them Together.
Will Secrets Destroy Their Love?

Dive into WWII history in this well-researched story of international intrigue, heartwarming romance, and profound courage.

American Emma Hanson is one of a dozen women sent to work in London as a cryptographer-decoding German secrets at the height of World War II. Her job as a member of the Women's Army Corps gives her a way to fight back against those who killed her brother. The only distraction she needs is a good book for the long nights of bombing that threaten her fragile peace.

Englishman William Brandt's mind is full of the secrets he knows and the spies he must keep tabs on to ensure the safety of the people and nation he loves. But there might just be room in his heart for a pretty WAC worker with a sweet spirit-and a curiosity that could threaten all his plans.

Emma's and William's paths cross in the aisle of a London bookstore as they reach for the same Agatha Christie novel. But such an innocent beginning could have deadly consequences...

Too Many Mistakes
3 stars By Iola, May 08 2017
I'd never heard of the Photographic Reconnaissance Unit at Dansefield House near Henley, England. Reading about the work these men and women did was fascinating, and was the novel's greatest strength. 

The details were less strong-tea with cream, a fried egg for breakfast (rationing, anyone?), references to sidewalks, signposts, the United Nations.

There was unintentional comedy in the references to British efficiency (if we're talking national stereotypes, Germans are efficient. The British are bureaucratic). And the typos ... Ouch.

In terms of the plot, I found the first quarter confusing. While it was obvious Will was a double agent, it was less obvious where his true allegiance lay. This made it difficult to engage in the developing romance as I didn't know whether I was supposed to like Will or loathe him. This made it impossible to engage in what was supposed to be a romance. The middle of the novel often dragged to the point where I considered giving up several times, and I didn't feel the suspense aspect of the plot really kick in until the last quarter. 

This is the first book in The London Chronicles series, but I can't say I'm interested enough to follow the rest of the series, even though World War II is one of my favourite historical fiction genres.
