Secrets of a Lady (2002) Tracy Grant


Set in London in November 1819

This is the first book in the Malcolm and Susanne Rannoch (Charles & Melanie Fraser) series, but is set in a time after almost all the other books.

Because I’ve read a lot of the other books in this series already, I know a lot of the big surprises/reveals in the story, but it really didn’t matter, because the story was good, and I didn’t know how the secrets would be revealed.

MĂ©lanie Fraser is a devoted wife to Charles and mother to Colin and Jessica, but beneath that perfect exterior lies a tremendous secret that could destroy her life–Melanie was a French spy during the war, while Charles was a British attache who did a deal of spying during the war himself.

Something of importance to note: bad things happen to a child in this story. It’s actually the reason I held off reading this book for so long, because books set later in time refer to this incident, but although it IS horrible, it’s not as horrifying as I feared.

I recommend this book, but I’ll admit I’ve enjoyed the other books in this series more.
Rating: 8/10
