Since her mentor’s passing, Maisie’s life has changed. She has new money, a new love interest, and a new job: with the British Secret Service. Her first gig takes her undercover at a small pacifist college, where she’s investigating a group supportive of the Nazi Party (it’s 1932).

My Thoughts:

Keeping this short. I didn’t love it as much as Mapping of Love and Death, but this was another solid installment in the series.  Maisie gets to be a professor in this one, which, of course, she is awesome at. And there is a subversive children’s book, which is pretty cool. And we’re getting closer to WWII, which makes me wonder if the focus will start to shift away from WWI.

I can’t believe I’m almost caught up. I don’t want this fun to end.

Audiobook Thoughts:

Fantastic. As always. Although keeping up with all of the characters in this one proved to be an audio challenge for me.
