Review quote

"I was completely riveted by this tale of plots against the royal house, betrayal among friends, and unreliable spies!"
--Tamora Pierce "More thoroughly satisfying mischief and mayhem are afoot."
--Kirkus "The inclusion of the Jacobite rebellion provides the catalyst for suspense and drama. All this plus a compelling heroine makes for an exciting addition to a promising series."
--School Library Journal "Feisty, strong, and quick-witted, Peggy is a welcome change from vapid romance heroines . . . happily, at least one more title is in the works."
--Booklist "Teenage girls will enjoy the focus on fashion and relationships even as Peggy boldly sidesteps her circumscribed roles as a woman and a maid of honor to reveal the truth underlying appearances."
