Review: Of Mist and Mirrors by Rebecca Connolly

My rating: 5 stars / It was amazing


To thine own side be true...

Minerva Dalton is an experienced operative among the Agents of the Convent and not easily ruffled by the nature of her work. But when the first social event of her assignment is interrupted by another operative using the same alias surname as her own, she has to make a sudden adjustment that changes the course of both missions. And that of her life.

Griffin Russell did not expect the surprise that was Minerva when he'd taken this assignment, but he was not about to argue with a woman who was stunning as well as dangerous. He takes up an unlikely partnership with her to protect them both from discovery and failure, and discovers just how skilled and accomplished an agent she truly is.

Working together, can they accomplish both missions and not kill each other in the process? Or will something far more complicated and far less expected arise from their predicament?

My Review

What a dynamic couple! Minerva and Griffin are both skilled and experienced spies for England, but this is their first time working together. I loved what they both brought to the table, and their banter was always entertaining. Griffin is a charming antagonizer, and Minerva is alternately stoic, annoyed, and sassy. Their first meeting was memorable for them both, and their attraction grows as they develop trust and respect for the true person beneath each of their facades. The layered plot kept the pace moving as Minerva and Griffin establish their position as a power couple in society, seek out traitors, and search for clues of a missing person of interest. I'm always intrigued and enthralled by this author's Regency books with suspense woven in with the romance!
