Review | The Princess Spy

The Princess Spy

amazon barnes & noble Christianbook.com Goodreads

A new suitor. A shocking discovery.

Margaretha has always been a romantic, and hopes her newest suitor, Lord Claybrook, is destined to be her one true love. But then an injured man is brought to Hagenheim Castle, claiming to be an English lord who was attacked by Claybrook and left for dead. And only Margaretha—one of the few who speaks his language—understands the wild story.

Margaretha finds herself unable to pass Colin’s message along to her father, the duke, and convinces herself “Lord Colin” is just an addled stranger. Then Colin retrieves an heirloom she lost in a well, and asks her to spy on Claybrook as repayment. Margaretha knows she could never be a spy—not only is she unable to keep anything secret, she’s sure Colin is completely wrong about her potential betrothed. Though when Margaretha overhears Claybrook one day, she discovers her romantic notions may have been clouding her judgment about not only Colin but Claybrook as well. It is up to her to save her father and Hagenheim itself from Claybrook’s wicked plot.

Hott Review:

The Rantings of a Lunatic or a Man Bent on Justice?

Loosely based on The Frog Prince, The Princess Spy is a spellbinding tale.

I really enjoyed Margaretha’s and Lord Colin’s characters. They were both great people, showed growth, and perseverance. Their adventure is terrific and it was great fun watching them become the people they’d wished they’d be.

Margaretha’s strength is shown in her trust in God and her unswerving determination to do what is right and just. She’s a great example for all young ladies… and not so young ladies. 😉

The only thing I didn’t like is that there were times where the story drug or was a bit confusing. Like the prologue. It didn’t make any sense, but I say that a lot, so maybe it’s just me.
