A Portrait of Loyalty by Roseanna M. White

About the Book:

Zivon Marin was one of Russia’s top cryptographers until the October Revolution tore apart his world. Forced to flee to England after speaking out against Lenin, Zivon is driven by a growing anger and determined to offer his services to the Brits. But never far from his mind is his brother, whom Zivon fears died in the train crash that separated them. 

Lily Blackwell sees the world best through the lens of a camera and possesses unsurpassed skill when it comes to retouching and re-creating photographs. With her father’s connections in propaganda, she’s recruited to the intelligence division, even though her mother would disapprove if she ever found out.

My Thoughts:


This book was absolutely fantastic. I was completely engrossed in this plot and absolutely adored all of the characters. This series has truly been exceptional. A Portrait of Loyalty was perfectly paced, full of historical interest, and an completely perfect ending to a flawless series. Zivon was such a serious and soulful character and unlike any of her previous hero’s, but I loved the depth and calm that seemed to embody him. Lily was the perfect balance of intelligence and heart, but her appreciation for beauty really made her a perfect match for Zivon. The twists and turns in this story kept me fully invested and there were some shock factor moments that I haven’t quite gotten past. This was truly a flawless novel by Roseanna White and I cannot recommend this series enough to historical fiction fans.

The Haunting at Bonaventure Circus by Jaime Jo Wright

About The Book:

1928
The Bonaventure Circus is a refuge for many, but Pippa Ripley was rejected from its inner circle as a baby. When she receives mysterious messages from someone called the “Watchman,” she is determined to find him and the connection to her birth. As Pippa’s search leads her to a man seeking justice for his murdered sister and evidence that a serial killer has been haunting the circus train, she must decide if uncovering her roots is worth putting herself directly in the path of the killer. 

Present Day
The old circus train depot will either be torn down or preserved for historical importance, and its future rests on real estate project manager Chandler Faulk’s shoulders. As she dives deep into the depot’s history, she’s also balancing a newly diagnosed autoimmune disease and the pressures of single motherhood. When she discovers clues to the unsolved murders of the past, Chandler is pulled into a story far darker and more haunting than even an abandoned train depot could portend.

My Thoughts:


No one pens a more eerie tale than Jaime Jo Wright. She has mastered the craft of writing suspenseful split time novels with haunting plots that are chilling and full of surprises. The Haunting At Bonaventure Circus kept me guessing until the conclusion! Prepare yourself for twists and turns as this story unfolds! This has such a suspenseful and shocking ending, like hold your breath and just keep turning the pages! I love it when I’m surprised by an ending or shocked by a reveal of facts and this one delivers! This isn’t your typical trip to the circus, but it will definitely grab your attention and intrigue you!
