The Description

Her Secret War: Book 2
Publication Date: April 14, 2022

Spying on the enemy is a dangerous game…

London, 1941
After losing her family to a Nazi bomb attack back home in Ireland, Sarah Gillespie joins the British Secret Services to bring them justice.

Partnered with an American undercover agent, Lieutenant Tony Anderson, Sarah embarks on a dangerous mission that takes her from war-torn London into the black mountains of Wales. But when one of her team is revealed to be a German mole, and enemies begin to close in, what price will Sarah have to pay to save her country, and to save herself?

The Review

Sarah Gillespie wants nothing more than to bring her father to justice for his role as a German collaborator. As a newly minted member of the British Secret Service, she is worried her career might be over after she meets her new partner.

Author Pam Lecky uses World War II as the backdrop for Her Last Betrayal. Filled with espionage and sabotage, the storyline pairs Sarah up with an American partner, Lt. Tony Anderson. To say Anderson is reluctant to have a partner—especially an amateur female—is an understatement. Their mutual disdain is well documented.

While the first quarter of the book focuses on Sarah’s time in London preparing for the undercover assignment, the following section takes place in Wales. The scene outside the munitions factory involving beacons and a plane was full of suspense. It soon becomes apparent that someone on their side is also a German mole.

From the countryside to the streets of London, Sarah and Anderson wrestle with a changing relationship as they try to outwit the double agent and co-conspirators. While the story serves as a continuation of Her Secret War, it can easily be read as a standalone.

My name is Amy W., and I am a book addict. I will never forget the day I came home from junior high school to find my mom waiting for me with one of the Harlequin novels from my stash. As she was gearing up for the "you shouldn't be reading this" lecture, I told her the characters get married in the end. I'm just glad she didn't find the Bertrice Small book hidden in my closet. I have diverse reading tastes, evident by the wide array of genres on my Kindle. As I made the transition to an e-reader, I found myself worrying that something could happen to it. As a result, I am now the proud owner of four Kindles -- all different kinds, but plenty of back-ups! "Fifty Shades of Grey" gets high marks on my favorites list -- not for character development or dialogue (definitely not!), but because it blazed new ground for those of us who believe provocative fiction is more than just an explicit cover. Sylvia Day, Lexie Blake, and Kristin Hannah are some of my favorite authors. Speaking of diverse tastes, I also enjoy Dean Koontz, Iris Johansen, and J.A. Konrath. I’m always ready to discover new-to-me authors, especially when I toss in a palate cleanser that is much different than what I would normally read. Give me something with a well-defined storyline, add some suspense (or spice), and I am a happy reader. Give me a happily ever after, and I am downright giddy.
