The Counterfeit Guest Paperback
by Rose Melikan
Part of the Mary Finch series
Spring 1797. The war with France deepens, the Channel Fleet has mutinied ...and a ruthless traitor lurks within fashionable London society.
Such matters should not concern young Mary Finch, who has recently inherited an unexpected fortune.
But her new status brings her little pleasure, and she longs for freedom and adventure.
Mary's restless spirit leads her to a meeting with an elusive spymaster, who offers her an intriguing proposal.
With England's security and a friend's safety at risk, Mary arrives at the exotic Champian Hall, determined to uncover its dark secrets.
But the knowledge that she seeks is deadly, especially when the hunter becomes the hunted.
Brimming with suspense and drama, The Counterfeit Guest is an irresistible historical mystery from the author of the acclaimed The Blackstone Key.

Review by 26kathryn
I found this book quite slow to start with, I felt as though I'd got a third of the way through the book before it actually started to get interesting. I'm glad I stuck with it though because it was a good story. I enjoyed the sense of mystery and it was interesting to read about a period of history that I don't know too much about.I was a bit disappointed to find after I started reading that this was the second book in a series, as there were several points in the book that referred back to previous events that obviously happened in the first book. Luckily this didn't have any major impact on my enjoyment of this book.
