LOVE IT OR LOATHE IT
I found Penny For Your Secrets engaging and fun to read. I loved the look into what life is like after a war. Not just for individuals but also society as all have changed and people must decide if things will go back to the way they were before or if the changes are good changes that should continue.
I continue to enjoy Verity and Sidney and their relationship. Because of the war they have both changed and were not together as those changes happened. I enjoy watching them as they navigate who they each have become while also adjusting to who their spouse has become.
The mysteries were engaging and had me guessing and I really loved the historical looks into 1919 and learning about a British cargo ship whose crew vanished during the war.
I received a copy of Penny For Your Secrets from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
