The Gentleman Spy by Erica Vetsch

Welcome to the blog tour for The Gentleman Spy by Erica Vetsch!

About The Book

He only wanted a duchess for a day–but she’s determined to make it a marriage for life.
When his father and older brother suddenly pass away, the new Duke of Haverly is saddled with a title he never expected to bear. To thwart the plans of his scheming family, the duke impulsively marries a wallflower. After all, she’s meek and mild; it should be easy to sequester her in the country and get on with his life–as a secret agent for the Crown.
But his bride has other ideas. She’s determined to take her place not only as his duchess but as his wife. As a duchess, she can use her position to help the lowest of society–the women forced into prostitution because they have no skills or hope. Her endeavors are not met favorably in society, nor by her husband who wishes she’d remain in the background as he ordered.
Can the duke succeed in relegating her to the sidelines of his life? When his secrets are threatened with exposure, will his new wife be an asset or a liability?

My Thoughts

After greatly enjoying the first book in this series, I was very excited to read the second installment. I loved the characters in this book! Charlotte has a kind heart and gumption that allows her to stand up for those less fortunate as she adapts to a strange situation.  Marcus, too, is down-to-earth despite his lofty status and is easy to like.  I enjoyed their interactions as their relationship grew throughout the story.  There are also some loveable secondary characters!  I also really liked the mystery aspect to this book and the surprising twists and turns in the plot.  I love regency romance novels and this story delivered with descriptions of balls, gowns, and society. I do recommend reading this series in order, but the first one is also a great novel.  I am eagerly awaiting the next novel!  I highly recommend this series!

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher through Audra Jennings PR. Opinions expressed in this review are entirely my own.

The White Rose Resists by Amanda Barratt

The White Rose Resists book cover


Although they all have different backgrounds, a group of students at the University of Munich agree on one thing—Hitler’s philosophies are corrupt and evil.  They form an underground student organization, The White Rose, to publish leaflets and raise a cry against the injustice happening to their country.  As they risk everything to speak for the voiceless being persecuted, they are constantly in danger of discovery by the Gestapo.  But nothing can stop those who believe in standing up for what is right.


Wow!  This book is so good!  I found myself completely immersed in the plot as the well-researched history came to life with fictional details.  I love reading about characters that are based on true stories, and this novel is full of real heroes who stood up for the wrongs and injustices in the world during a tragic time in Germany’s history.  I often found myself pausing in reading as I reflected on their courage despite such risks and dangers.  And the story made me think about my own beliefs and what I am doing in our current culture to stand up for those who are voiceless.  This story is very well written and it is easy to visualize the scenes and get to know the characters.  I cried more than once as I read about their bravery and learned even more about the cruelties of that time period.  The spiritual truths were woven seamlessly among the story and were easily relatable. I could say a lot of good things about this amazing book, but it is hard to put into words that way that this story touched me.  I highly recommend that you obtain a copy and read for yourself how impactful this book can truly be!
