Who’s ready for another review? I think you will be because this time I’m sharing my thoughts on Roseanna White’s The Number of Love, book one in the new series Codebreakers. You’ll definitely want to add this to your TBR pile!
About the Book
Three years into the Great War, England’s greatest asset is their intelligence network—field agents risking their lives to gather information, and codebreakers able to crack every German telegram. Margot De Wilde thrives in the environment of the secretive Room 40, where she spends her days deciphering intercepted messages. But when her world is turned upside down by an unexpected loss, for the first time in her life numbers aren’t enough.
Drake Elton returns wounded from the field, followed by an enemy that just won’t give up. He’s smitten quickly by the too-intelligent Margot, but how to convince a girl who lives entirely in her mind that sometimes life’s answers lie in the heart?
Amidst biological warfare, encrypted letters, and a German spy who wants to destroy not just them, but others they love, Margot and Drake will have to work together to save them all from the very secrets that brought them together.
I loved everything about this book! First of all, Margot!! I’ve wanted to know more about Margot since I read about
her in the Shadows over England series. And to know that this is the start of a new series has me tickled pink!
I love Margot and everything about her. She’s not your usual heroine. She thinks in numbers and values logic over feelings. I can admire that and it made for a great read.
And Drake! What a hero. Instead of forcing Margot to comply to his way of thinking, he woos her in a way she can appreciate. It was so sweet to see their romance bloom and I have to admit, I started spying connections with the numbers everywhere!
Oh and the cameos! Oh, oh, oh! I would love to spoil it but trust me, there are cameos galore in here that make you happy you and make you want to pull out some old books in Ms. White’s backlist. Enjoy them!
I devoured this book in one sitting—although I slowed down toward the end to savor it a bit—and can’t wait until the next Codebreaker releases.
