"Moonlight Masquerade" Book Review

Congrats to the latest winner!
Hannah will be receiving a copy of Fear, Faith and a Fistful of Chocolate by Debora Coty. Thanks for entering!

I love Regency novels and it is hard to find ones by Christian authors, so I was thrilled to get my hands on Moonlight Masquerade. I had just recently finished Her Good Name by this author and knew I was in for a treat!

About the book: 

Lady Celine Wexham seems the model British subject. French by birth but enjoying life in 1813 as a widowed English countess, she is in the unique position of being able to help those in need--or to spy for the notorious Napoleon Bonaparte. When Rees Phillips of the British Foreign Office is sent to pose as the countess's butler and discover where her true loyalties lie, he is confident he will uncover the truth. But the longer he is in her fashionable townhouse in London's West End, the more his staunch loyalty to the Crown begins to waver as he falls under Lady Wexham's spell. 

My thoughts: 

If you like mystery, suspense and intrigue, then you will thoroughly enjoy Moonlight Masquerade! From the very beginning, the suspense will keep you on the edge of your seat. The twists and turns in the story were enough to keep me reading late into the night. Who is the real spy? What happens if they find out Rees isn't really a butler? Can he pull it off? Moonlight Masquerade is a delightful Regency novel of love, spies and a romance that will tug your heart strings!

About the author: 

Ruth Axtell is the author of thirteen novels, including Wild Rose, one of Booklist's Top Ten in Christian Fiction. Currently a resident of Downeast Maine, Axtell has lived in the Canary Islands, Miami, and the Netherlands.

The fine print:

Moonlight Masquerade is available March 2013 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group. I was provided with a complimentary copy of this book for review purposes. The opinions expressed are all mine and I was not required to give a positive review.

Note: Sorry, but there won't be a giveaway this time! Due to lack of funds, I cannot continue to mail books out. Hopefully in the future, I can do a big giveaway to clean off my shelves. If you have a minute, would you please pray for a job for our family? Thanks!
