This story continues the adventures of a pair of professional spies — if only their income from the profession could support them. Instead, Simon works on his magical studies and Anastasia relies on the patronage of members of the peerage who know about her clandestine role.
The partners reunite to solve another case involving rich young men and missing time. As they investigate, their burgeoning relationship blossoms.
Adorable romance, upper-echelon societal politics, and subtle fantasy in an otherwise familiar historical world? I loved everything about this installment of the Galipp Files, and I can’t wait to read more.
Rating: 5 (out of 5) stars. Cross-posted to Amazon and Goodreads.
