About The Book:
Rosemary Gresham has no family beyond the band of former urchins who helped her survive as a girl in the mean streets of London. Grown now, they are no longer pickpockets--instead they focus on high value items and have learned how to blend into upper-class society. Rosemary is beginning to question whether she can continue in this life when she's offered the challenge of a lifetime--determine whether a certain wealthy gentleman is loyal to Britain or to Germany. After all how does one steal a family's history, their very name?
As Europe moves ever closer to World War I, rumors swirl around Peter Holstein. Awkward and solitary, but with access to the king, many fear his influence. But Peter can't help his German last name and wants to prove his loyalty to the Crown--so he can go back to anonymously writing a series of popular adventure novels. When Rosemary arrives on his doorstep pretending to be a well-credentialed historian, Peter believes she's the right person to help him dig through his family's past.
When danger and suspicion continue to mount, both realize they're in a race against time to discover the truth--about Peter's past and about the undeniable attraction kindling between them.

This is the first time reading author, Roseanna M. White, and I was absolutely not disappointed. There is something for everyone in this book, from humor to romance to twists and turns aplenty. It is the first book in the Shadows Over England series and it was a fantastic job! I look forward to reading the next book, A Song Unheard, when in releases in January 2018. Book Three, An Hour Unspent will also release soon.
The book has great characters who were developed well, and had a fantastic plot that kept me reading late into the night! The suspense part of the book had me intrigued throughout reading and even though it is part of a series the end of the book tied up nicely.
I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
