About the Book

The Toughest Puzzle She'll Have to Solve
Might Be the Wishes of Her Own Heart

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 German telegrams for hints of the enemy's plans. 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, she discovers for the first time in her life that numbers aren't enough.

Drake Elton returns wounded from the field, followed by an enemy who just won't give up. He's smitten quickly by the quick and brainy Margot, but soon the dangers of the war draw ever closer. Margot and Drake will have to team up to save themselves from the very secrets that brought them together.

My Thoughts

This book is definitely my new favorite of Roseanna's...And that is saying a lot. Margot is an absolutely unique heroine and I love every aspect of her. She processes things differently. She thinks differently. And her responses and reactions are different than what most people would do. And Drake UNDERSTANDS her. He realizes her need to express herself through math and numbers. And by doing so, he learns how to speak her language. 18.

I loved getting to learn more history about WWI and Room 40 and the codebreakers. The adventure, romance, and friendship are engaging and addicting. I really didn't want the story to end and am so glad that this is only the first in the series. I love Roseanna's style and voice. She infuses so much detail and real life in her stories that make you feel a part of the story. I also love getting a variety of viewpoints throughout the story.

Y'all really need to go pick up a copy of this book. It is so good.

I received a complimentary copy of The Number of Love from the publishers. I was not required to write a positive review. All opinions expressed are mine alone.
