Review: Ring of Secrets by Roseanna M. White

Ring of Secrets
Roseanna M. White
Harvest House Publishing

This exciting romantic spy novel from Roseanna M. White combines fascinating cloak-and-dagger secrets with a tale of love and intrigue during the Revolutionary War.
Winter Reeves is an aristocratic Patriot forced to hide her heart amid the Loyalists of the City of New York. She has learned to keep her ears open so she can pass information on British movements to Robbie Townsend, her childhood friend, and his spy ring. If she's caught, if she's hung for espionage…well, she won't be. Robbie has taught her the tools of the trade: the wonders of invisible ink, drop locations and, most importantly, a good cover.
Bennet Lane returns to New York from his Yale professorship with one goal: to find General Washington’s spy hidden among the ranks of the elite. Searching for a wife was supposed to be nothing more than a convenient cover story for his mission, but when he meets Winter, with her too-intelligent eyes in her too-blank face, he finds a mystery that can’t be ignored.
Both believers…and both committed to a separate cause. Will their faith in God lead them to a shared destiny or lives lived apart?

My review:
My praise goes out to Ring of Secrets by Roseanna M. White, which is set during the Revolutionary War. I was quickly drawn into the book by the main characters,  Miss Winter Reeves and Mr. Bennett Lane.  Winter is forced to live with her grandparents in New York City after her mother dies and
her father goes off to fight for the Patriots. She pretends to be a "flighty" young women with no opinions or beliefs of her own. She soon meets Mr. Bennett Lane who becomes clumsy and tongue tied in the company of young women. When he meets Winter he is drawn to her and not that way at all.  He very quickly realizes that Winter is not what she appears to be even though she has others
I enjoyed the history, intrigue, humor and romance in Ring of Secrets and look forward to the next
book in the Culper Ring series.  This book deserves 5 out of 5 star.

I received this book from Net Galley and Harvest House Publishing for my honest review.  I was 
not paid in any way for my review.
