If youre looking for a good historical mystery, I recommend Maggie Hope! Set in England in the early days of World War II, our heroine Maggie is a brilliant mathematician who decides to give up her place at MIT to stay in England and support the war effort. Born to British parents who died tragically in a car accident, Maggie was raised by her aunt in the United States. Though seen as an American by her British friends, she grows to love London and identify with the Brits as she reconnects with her family roots. When the mysterious death of one of Prime Minister Winston Churchills secretaries leaves Downing Street short a staff member, Maggie reluctantly takes the job. Though the duties of a secretary are far beneath her skills as a college educated mathematician, she quickly finds herself investigating a ring of spies and terrorists. Historical mystery fans are sure to love the smart, unflappable Maggie Hope in the first book of the series. And thankfully, for those speed readers out there, there are currently eight books in the series available with the ninth book due for publication in February 2020. Plenty of time to catch up!
After German Luftwaffe bomb London, Maggie Hope--trained in math and code breaking, but only able to find a job as Winston Churchill's secretary--uses the access her position demands to try to unravel an assassinate plot.
