By Susan Elia MacNeal

Her first assignment is to pose as a tutor to Princess Elizabeth in case the Germans decide to come after her since she is the heir to the throne. What she thinks will be a waste of her talents soon turns out to be more than she had bargained for.

 Princess Elizabeth's Spy

Maggie Hope is not a hardened spy but a spy in training and through Maggie’s eyes the author brings to life World War II in a unique way as this novice inspector will do anything she can to do her part in the War. Even though Maggie Hope is the main character in this novel the author also brings to life an array of side characters each one bringing a new and interesting perspective on the War. From the young princess’ to the Nazis each character adds new dimension to the story itself making this a truly diversified read. If all of this is not enough for you, there is still an amazing mystery full of plot twists and intrigue. Then just for good measure the author throws in one heck of a twist at the end to guarantee you will come back for more.

The Mine by John Heldt Review

The Mine

By John Heldt

Joel Smith, a geology major, is on a road trip with his best friend when they are detoured in Helena Montana decided to make use of their time in the small town Joel finds an abandoned mine and with his adventurous nature combined with his love of geology he has to explore it. But somehow he is transported back to 1941 and to an America that is on the brink of war, what he doesn’t expect on this adventure is that he will fall in love with the most captivating woman.

The Mine is an interesting historical novel; the author did a wonderful job in bringing to life a time in America when war is in the near future leading to a time of apprehension of things that have yet to come. A lot of authors have written about World War II but none have brought to the public a novel of what it must have been like right before Pearl Harbor was attacked. John Heldt did a wonderful job, the story is written so beautifully that the story takes on a life of its own with breathtaking scenery and heartfelt romance all against the backdrop of uncertainty and conflict. This story brings the question “Can love conquer all?” to the forefront in a most unusual way. If you are a fan of time travel romances I would definitely give this one a try.
