What His Majesty's Hope is about:
Maggie Hope returns to embark on a clandestine mission behind enemy lines where no one can be trusted, and even the smallest indiscretion can be deadly.World War II has finally come home to Britain, but it takes more than nightly air raids to rattle intrepid spy and expert code breaker Maggie Hope. After serving as a secret agent to protect Princess Elizabeth at Windsor Castle, Maggie is now an elite member of the Special Operations Executive—a black ops organization designed to aid the British effort abroad—and her first assignment sends her straight into Nazi-controlled Berlin, the very heart of the German war machine. Relying on her quick wit and keen instincts, Maggie infiltrates the highest level of Berlin society, gathering information to pass on to London headquarters. But the secrets she unveils will expose a darker, more dangerous side of the war—and of her own past.
Maggie Hope is back and even better than before! Book three takes the reader deep into Germany and finds Maggie's life on the line more than once. I was impressed by Maggie's bravery in accepting the job of being dropped into enemy territory and becoming a spy. She's such a smart cookie but there were a few instances where I wanted her to stop thinking she was so invincible, but that just added to the tension in the story. Many twists and turns, encounters with her "dead" mother, and always questioning who to trust, made this a great addition to the series!!
Recommend? YES! I honestly think it's the best of the books yet! Maggie's grown-up a bit in this one, experiences serious life-altering events, and realizes that life is precarious at best.
