Mrs. Roosevelt's Confidante

Mrs. Roosevelt's Confidante: A Maggie Hope Mystery - Susan Elia MacNeal

I have loved this series ever since I read the first in the series and am always eager to read the next in the series. That is why this was the perfect book for me to read after ending my break from reading. Maggie Hope it's back once again in this installment but this time she is back in America. She is acting as Winston Churchill's typist as he travels to America to meet with President Roosevelt. Once in America she finds herself in the middle of a murder mystery that just might lead back to someone in the White House.


I really love reading about Maggie. I have always enjoyed how strong she can be (even when she herself isn't feeling strong). I can't say that I enjoyed what happened with her relationship with John in this book. Quite honestly I think both Maggie and I need a break from him. 


I really enjoyed that there were so many historical figures in this installment and that a lot of this book was inspired by true events. I can't comment on the portrayal of the historical figures and how accurate they were. This book definitely made me want to read more about the event that inspired the Wendell Cotton storyline.


I was a bit disappointed with the main mystery in this book (the mysterious death) as I felt that it was so easy to figure it out that it wasn't really a mystery at all. I have grown used to the mysteries in this series being strong and this was just weak in comparison.


Fans of Maggie Hope will enjoy this latest installment, I know I did. I really look forward to seeing what Maggie does next.
