PALACE OF SPIES
Genre: Young Adult, Historical
This entertaining tale for fans of historicals and spy novels has intrigue, romance and murder. The plot is fast-paced, if at times predictable, with a dash of sweet romance. Though some of the colloquialisms are questionable, and the ending is not quite a surprise, the book is still worth the read.
After being forced from her uncle’s home, Peggy Fitzroy lands in the unenviable position of a spy in the court of King George I, impersonating the recently departed Lady Francesca. It is only when Peggy discovers that her predecessor was murdered — and that she may be next — that she realizes the stakes of the game she plays. (HARCOURT, Nov., 368 pp., $16.99, ISBN: 9780544074118, HC, 12 & Up)
