His Majesty’s Hope by Susan Ella MacNeal


The third in the Maggie Hope Mystery series, His Majesty’s Hope is a thrilling mystery featuring one of my favorite spies parachuting behind enemy lines during World War II.  Maggie Hope has quickly risen in the ranks from Winston Churchill’s secretary to an elite member of a black ops organization.  As a spy and code breaker, Maggie is dropped in Nazi controlled Berlin to infiltrate high society and gather secrets for the Allies.  Some of the secrets she gathers are closer to home than she expected.  Mystery, adventure, romance…MacNeal spins a good tale!

One caveat:  there is more World War II here than in past novels–I missed Maggie through the first half of the book.  But, the ending is satisfying, and I look forward to book 4.  This is a great series for fans of Jacqueline Winspear’s Maisie Dobbs series, or those readers who watched Foyle’s War.
