Adele learns just how ruthless German agents can be.
In Edwardian England, Lady Adelaide Azalea Margaret de Morville, Mrs. Hugh Becket, continues her work for William Melville, spymaster, even though it has left her with no time to live the life she would prefer, which includes spending at least a little time with Daniel Bannister.
When she refuses to travel to Germany to watch over King Edward while he visits the German Emperor to discuss disarmament of their increasingly more competitive navies, Melville gives Adele an alternative, superficial task of watching over a young, sweet debutante, Lady Winnifred.
Adele perseveres with the useless, quite horrid task of trailing an innocent girl through the Season. It puts her in the path of German agents, who demonstrate just how dark and dangerous her new work really is…
This novelette is the second in the Adelaide Becket Edwardian espionage series.
1: The Requisite Courage
2: The Rosewater Debutante
…and more to come.
A historical suspense espionage novelette.

Wonderful quick read
The Rosewater Debutante was a delightful continuation of the Adelaide Beckett series and I can’t wait to see what happens next. Tracy Cooper-Posey is one of those rare authors that can convey a wealth of feeling and information with very few words. Each book in this series is a quick afternoon read packed with witty dialogue, intrigue and even a few pulse-pounding moments. I will definitely be reading more of Adelaide’s adventures and can’t wait to see what happens next when she travels to Germany in the King’s retinue...and if Daniel will become more than a friend and partner in crime-fighting.
