This was an interesting story especially if you enjoy WWII history and the Royals. I didn't enjoy it as much as book 1.

I liked this second Maggie Hope book about her adventures as a math tutor to Princess Elizabeth while trying to protect her from being kidnapped. This is better written thant the last book and I like that it is fact based though fiction. Good summer read with a suprises.

An interesting story built around the royal family during World War two, not terribly exciting
