Princess Elizabeth's Spy (Maggie Hope #2)

Princess Elizabeth's Spy by Susan Elia MacNeal is the second book in her Maggie Hope mystery series which takes place during World War II.

After successfully proving herself as one of Mr. Churchill's secretaries, Maggie Hope is being trained to use her brain more to its potential. As a mathematician she could do more than take dictation, she has a flair for breaking codes. And she is fluent in German and French.

Now Maggie is training to be a spy. She is hoping for an assignment in Europe, but those in charge have another idea for her. Maggie is to be undercover at Windsor Castle - teaching Princess Elizabeth maths. At the same time she is to keep her eyes and ears open. As the heir to the throne, Elizabeth is a very likely target of the Nazis.

Maggie is a great character and a woman not willing to let the men of the time talk down to her. She is a brilliant mathematician and good with puzzles. And she will need all of her skills to find the threat at the castle before it is too late.

MacNeal's series is a must read for any fans of historical fiction, mystery, England or just great books.
