Reviews for Lord and Lady Spy
Move over Mr&Mrs Smith, make room for Lord & Lady Smythe
Who really is Sophia Galloway? Is she the super spy that goes by Agent Saint or the mousy, bespeckled, drab looking Lady Smythe? Who really is Adrian Galloway? Is he the Barbican group's greatest spy or the never at home, always on the go Lord Smythe? The answers to these questions can be found in Shana Galen's LORD AND LADY SPY.
Since day one of their marriage, Adrian and Sophia have done their own thing and spent time together when necessary. Now that the war is over, they both must go back to their mundane lives. Which, for spies isn't a good thing. What does one do to occupy the time when there is no longer a traitor to bring to justice or a continent to canvas? One could try gardening or golf if the urge arises.
For Adrian and Sophia, that is not the case. They're itching to do something, anything to not go back to that life of "hello" "how do you do" "goodnight". How do two retired spies get back into the game after the Napoleonic wars? Answer: Solve the murder of the prime minister's half brother. There is only one position in the Barbican group (which said spies worked for) and to be reinstated, the spy who solves the murder and finds the murderer will get the coveted spot. Game on!
As they get closer to the answer, Sophia and Adrian must put their differences aside and work as a team to solve this case while dodging thugs, stealing carriages, fighting their growing attraction to each other and coming to terms with the heart wrenching miscarriages that Sophia suffered through while Adrian looked on, not knowing how to comfort her.
Once again, Ms. Galen has captured me from the first chapter until the last with her captivating mix of intrigue, sexiness (if you don't consider doing the sexy against an open window then I don't know what is) and fast paced storytelling. She made me care for the hero and heroine, although at times I wanted to shake each of them and scream "fall in love already!", and loudly boo the villains trying to kill Adrian and Sophia. My adrenaline spiked, my heart raced, my shoulders shook with laughter and my eyes glinted with unshed tears for Sophia and Adrian's loss (I couldn't just fall apart in front of random strangers at Starbucks now, could I?). If this had been made into a movie, it would have gotten a rousing stand of ovation at the end. Well done, Ms. Galen.
