2014 – Book #22


The twenty-second book I read in 2014 was Lord and Lady Spy by Shana Galen. I finished this book on 3/31/14. This is the first book I have read by this author. I rated this book 3.75 stars out of a scale of 5. This is about Lord and Lady Smythe, a husband and wife who are both members of an elite spy group known as the Barbican, a division of Britain’s Foreign Office. However, neither one realizes the other is also a spy.

After both are dismissed from the Barbican group due to the war ending, they find themselves presented with a mission that will allow one of them back into the group, but only one. As they work together to solve the case, they learn to rely on each other in a variety of ways and discover a deep love for each other.

(SPOILER ALERT) While I didn’t like that in the end the villain gets away and is not brought to justice for his crimes, it looks like there are more books in this series according to the author’s website (This appears to be the first in the Lord and Lady Spy series). So I guess I will just have to read further into the series to see what happens to our dastardly villain.

Other than that, I thought this story was quite well written. The reader could feel the emotion of the characters and the story was well-paced and charming. Overall was a good read and I look forward to reading more by this author.
