About the book:

Rosemary Gresham has no family beyond the band of former urchins who helped her survive as a girl in the mean streets of London. Grown now, they are no longer pickpockets—instead they focus on high value items and have learned how to blend into upper-class society. Rosemary is beginning to question whether she can continue in this life when she’s offered the challenge of a lifetime—determine whether a certain wealthy gentleman is loyal to Britain or to Germany. After all how does one steal a family’s history, their very name?

As Europe moves ever closer to World War I, rumors swirl around Peter Holstein. Awkward and solitary, but with access to the king, many fear his influence. But Peter can’t help his German last name and wants to prove his loyalty to the Crown–so he can go back to anonymously writing a series of popular adventure novels. When Rosemary arrives on his doorstep pretending to be a well-credentialed historian, Peter believes she’s the right person to help him dig through his family’s past.

When danger and suspicion continue to mount, both realize they’re in a race against time to discover the truth—about Peter’s past and about the undeniable attraction kindling between them.

My Thoughts:
WOW! I loved this book. I don’t usually gush about books. I read a lot and I enjoy a lot of books and styles of writing and I love a lot of books but this one was really good.
I don’t remember reading a book by this author before and sometimes when I try a new author, I’m a bit worried that it will be a waste of my time.
Roseanna did an excellent job on this book. The story line and characters are really well written. I wasn’t able to guess exactly what would happen and there were some really good twists dropped in that surprised me and kept me reading.
I fell in love with the “villain” Rosemary in the story and you will too.
Set in Edwardian England, this story is a little Downton Abbey-ish and if you enjoy history, mystery, and a high class setting, you may enjoy this book!
I was sad when I finished it.
