Jack West is sent to spy on the British in New York during the Revolutionary War. His contact is Constance Sullivan, a rich widow. She is looking to bring Elias Ashfield, bookseller, into their group. Jack is not happy about spying nor is he happy about adding Elias to their group because the two men are attracted to one another. Lots of surprises await them all.
I enjoyed this book. It was well written. I liked the period which is not done much any more. I loved the characters and was surprised by how some activities were handled--both within the spying story and the love story. The story held me interest as I always wanted to know what would happen especially at the end. I look forward to reading the next book.
