I am of two minds about Nightingale. I enjoyed this novella, but I would have enjoyed it better if I liked the heroine a little more. While I was finally able to cut her some slack, most of her misery is of her own making, and while past events are always viewed with 20/20 vision, it’s that murky, uncertain future that needs a lot of trust and faith that things will work out for the best. They didn’t for Jemma, and instead of a spoiled, willful girl, she’s now a desperate, improvised woman. Manipulated by her parents since birth, and now willing to trade her soul to save her brother from his own folly, she is forced to turn to the man she rejected years ago with a plea to allow her brother to live.

Fortunately, I’ve written about enough spies to know there are 5 items any successful spy needs. Read more
