Time for another blog tour adventure. Pull on your petticoats and grab your spy glasses for this next book.
Wait! Did I hear you say you don’t own a petticoat?
Well, boo. 😦 I guess you’ll have to make due with a bathrobe then and hope you don’t stand out too much.
Petticoat Spy is set in Revolutionary War times in Massachusetts 1775. It was quite a delicious read, and I’m excited to tell you about it. Here’s the blurb:
Abigail Stowell is a rarity for her time. The comely young woman is educated, outspoken, and attuned to the charged political climate around her. She is a staunch Patriot. In short, she is a rebel. So when Gideon Whitlock, an avowed Tory, rides into her village, Abby is not only put off by his politics and arrogance but is also annoyed by her undeniable attraction to him.
When she observes a clandestine meeting between her Patriot father and Gideon, Abby soon realizes that in a world divided by loyalties, not everything is as it seems. Soon she is drawn deeper into political intrigue than she ever dreamed possible. And just as feelings begin to heat up between Abby and Gideon, the shot heard round the world ignites the beginning of war between the colonists and the British redcoats. There is no time for hesitation, and Abby finds herself thrust into a world of intrigue, treachery, and terror. Lives hang in the balance, and Abby will stop at nothing to support the Patriot movement—but will her allegiance to the cause mean losing the man she loves?
I really enjoyed getting to know the heroine in this story–Abigail. I loved Abby’s courage and need for adventure. She does daring things that are both stupid and bravely honorable. The villain was well-done too—extremely icky and vile—and the side characters added dimension to the story that made it a thoroughly enjoyable ride. The way the author wove history into the pages was so flawlessly done that I felt as if I was there in Massachusetts participating right alongside Abby and Gideon…and that was both thrilling and frightening. I love learning about history through well-written and researched novels like this. Two thumbs up and a huge grin for this story. I rated it a 5 on Goodreads and Amazon, and a 4 on my Sweet Scale. It was Delicious…like a hot fudge brownie sundae. A special treat I don’t get to enjoy all the time. I will definitely re-read it someday.
