Blurb
Evelyn Hadley-Attwater has it all -- a genteel Victorian life replete with loving husband, ball gowns and elegant parties. No one, including the man she married, suspects that she was once "Eve," a spy for England's most enigmatic intelligence agency. Summoned for one final assignment, the excitement of her former life and memories of her mysterious, flirtatious boss "Sir" prove too tempting....

Adrian Hadley-Attwater is a respectable, dignified gentleman. But even the most proper gentlemen have secrets of their own. Secrets from the rest of the world, from their families, from their wives. Secrets that have a price. Now, as a veil of secrecy frays, a tantalizing game of cat and mouse will test the bounds of unfailing love...

My Thoughts and Review

Wow ! This book was fun witty and full of surprises I absolutely love it and if I could give it more than 5 stars I would.What a page turner!
There was so much going on in the front line and the background also.The characters were great they all had personalities that were likeabe and also funny and one even on the more cautious side lending there humor to the story to make it a fun filled enjoyable read.

Eve used to be a spy. Eve is now though retired and married happily to Adrian Hadley-Attwater who is now an Earl and she is a countess .She is loving her new life even though at times it might be just a little boring.Eve is called back into service to fret out a spy who has stolen a file containing all the information about all the operatives they have in service. She needs to fret the thief out and bring this thief or spy to justice and this case to a close as soon as possible.Not wanting to do this as she is happily married and does not want to lose her husband due to her past she must find a way to go about and find the culprit and silence him or her once and for all .

Adrian is the suspicious sort and notices his wifes strange behavior. He follows her about and spies on her thinking she is having and affair.Boy, is he so wrong and is now eating crow every time he intervenes he draws even more conclusions getting him in even deeper hot water.The situations that Adrian creates for himself are hilarious !

Without giving away the rest of the plot and story you get the gist. Eve in a sense leads are husband on a merry chase even though she doesn't realize it.Her husband though has a very big secret of his own.Though it is true they need to catch the person responsible for taking the list and retrieving it as it endangers all parties a much bigger scheme is going on and another plot on top of that as the mystery unravels so do the clues to solve all the mysteries floating about.

I have to say that Eve and Celeste made this book really enjoyable with there big personalities quick whit and fun and loving nature.They had me laughing all throughout the book.And then the was Adrian who did nothing but cause havoc creating these all so hilarious situations he got himself into all over his jealousy over Eve and watching him try and get out of them was a hoot !

There was so much going on to keep you interested .Had a bit of romance a mystery and definitely tons of laughs for sure. I loved it.A Recommended read to all !Its in the keeper pile for sure for a re-read when one needs a good laugh.Been reading this author for 20 years and still love her !
