#FridayReads: "Princess Elizabeth's Spy" by Susan Elia MacNeal
I was given this book, “Princess Elizabeth’s Spy” by Susan Elia MacNeal by a friend who knows I am a history buff. As much as I read, I didn’t realize this was book two of a series (thus far of six) about a character, Maggie Hope. Reviews seem mixed from readers on Goodreads, but the award-winning, best-selling author.
Nonetheless, I enjoyed this book. I like strong, intelligent, female characters and the era in which this book is set, is particularly interesting. Many readers tagged her on historical facts and originality, but for me, I lose myself in the emotion of the writing and really dismiss all else, especially if I’m entertained and emotionally excited from what I read. In the end, that’s all that really matters. Too many critics and readers get caught up in literary drama and forget to just sit back, relax, and allow themselves to be entertained.
