World War II comes to Farleigh Place, the ancestral home of Lord Westerham and his five daughters, when a soldier with a failed parachute falls to his death on the estate. After his uniform and possessions raise suspicions, MI5 operative and family friend Ben Cresswell is covertly tasked with determining if the man is a German spy. The assignment also offers Ben the chance to be near Lord Westerham's middle daughter, Pamela, whom he furtively loves. But Pamela has her own secret: she has taken a job at Bletchley Park, the British code-breaking facility. As Ben follows a trail of spies and traitors, which may include another member of Pamela's family, he discovers that some within the realm have an appalling, history-altering agenda. Can he, with Pamela's help, stop them before England falls?… (mere)

I was looking forward to reading this, but unfortunately I found it a bit predictable. There are a ton of extraneous characters too, and an overusage of 1940s-esque words and phrases. Not bad, but not wonderful either. ( )

Not sure how this ended up on my TBR, probably due to the HF MPG. Missed the part about it being Mystery. However, I made it through and actually enjoyed it.

Set during WWII in Kent County, England and Paris, a body drops from the sky in a field at an estate. Dressed in a British uniform, MI5 knows he was not British at all, more likely a German a spy. Everyone seems to be involved in solving the mystery of who he actually was.

An easy read, not great but good enough.

The book moved a bit to slowly for me, but the writing was good and I did get attached to the characters. There are a lot of POV's, a few I wished were not there and a few I wish there were more of. ( )

This is an excellent book set in WW2 Britain. The setting is the countryside on the coast and how people coped with the massive changes of the war. The characters are entertaining and there is a mystery running through the story. Really got the flavor of the time. ( )

Exceptionally mediocre. ( )
