Very interesting historical romance
This was a very good book. It seemed to skip about some but not to the detriment to the overall book. Characters were interesting and the plot good.
A Cantata of Love
This novel is set during the time period of the war between the French and Napoleon against the English. It involves spies on both sides, the Opera and the use of code being passed in the composition of a famous singer. The intrigue of the Code Breakers trying to interrupt the passing of messages is quite different. It was enjoyable reading.
A mysterious plot filled with intrigue and mayhem, sprinkled with laughter, charm, love and lust.
