I have recently discovered the Maggie Hope series and have been delighted to listen to them on audiobook. I have read the first two in the series and am eager to read the rest.
Maggie Hope was born in England and raised in America after the tragic death of her parents in a car accident. She returns to England to sell a house left to her at the death of her grandmother. Maggie gains new friends and a new job in London as a typist for Winston Churchill. Her smart mind and mathematical skills help her decode a german message in an advertisement and sets her up to become a spy during World War 2.
Part mystery/spy novel and part character-driven drama, these books show the toll of the war on individuals and how so many sacrificed to stop the spread of Hitler's regime.
As Maggie grows in her abilities as a spy, so does the danger she finds herself in. And things are not always as they seem in Maggie's past. Her dead parents still have a role to play in Maggie's life in ways she couldn't have imagined.
I've put book 3 on hold at the library audiobook site and can't wait to continue with Maggie's story as she heads to Berlin and more family secrets are revealed.
