I was very excited to receive this ARC of the second title by Allison Montclair. It was an enjoyable read with elements of mystery, intrigue and humor.
The characters: Gwen Bainbridge and Iris Sparks. Gwen was widowed in the war and it took her a bit of time to find her way again. Iris worked in a secret job during the war.
Their current work: They run an agency that introduces people to one another; it’s a matrimonial bureau.
Their contacts: Gwen can be in touch with the aristocracy while Iris has many war and university contacts.
This case: To be involved in vetting a certain Greek prince who would like to marry Princess Elizabeth.
Overall, this is a light read. It is perfectly fine as a standalone though readers may well want to read the first in the series as well. This book will be enjoyed by those who like historical mysteries, the time period and female protagonists.
Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this read in exchange for an honest review.
