⭐⭐⭐⭐

Publication Date: May 7, 2019

Paperback: 400 Pages


From internationally bestselling author and “rising star of Southern fiction” (Mary Alice Monroe, New York Times bestselling author) Kristy Woodson Harvey comes the third novel in her Peachtree Bluff series, in which a secret threatens the tight-knit bond between a trio of sisters and their mother.

With the man of her dreams back in her life and all three of her daughters happy, Ansley Murphy should be content. But she can’t help but feel like it’s all a little too good to be true.

Meanwhile, youngest daughter and actress Emerson, who is recently engaged and has just landed the role of a lifetime, seemingly has the world by the tail. Only, something she can’t quite put her finger on is worrying her—and it has nothing to do with her recent health scare.

When two new women arrive in Peachtree Bluff—one who has the potential to wreck Ansley’s happiness and one who could tear Emerson’s world apart—everything is put in perspective. And after secrets that were never meant to be told come to light, the powerful bond between the Murphy sisters and their mother comes crumbling down, testing their devotion to each other and forcing them to evaluate the meaning of family.

The Number of Love – Blog Tour (Review & Giveaway)

Welcome to the Blog Tour & Giveaway for The Number of Love by Roseanna M. White with JustRead Publicity Tours! Follow along with the tour for a special inside peek at how The Number of Love is connected to the author’s previous book from another series, A Song Unheard.


About the book

⭐⭐⭐⭐

Title: The Number of Love
Series: Codebreakers #1
Author: Roseanna M. White
Publisher: Bethany House
Release Date: June 4, 2019
Genre: Historical Fiction/Romance/Intrigue

Three years into the Great War, England’s greatest asset is their intelligence network—field agents risking their lives to gather information, and codebreakers able to crack every German telegram. Margot De Wilde thrives in the environment of the secretive Room 40, where she spends her days deciphering intercepted messages. But when her world is turned upside down by an unexpected loss, for the first time in her life numbers aren’t enough.

Drake Elton returns wounded from the field, followed by an enemy that just won’t give up. He’s smitten quickly by the too-intelligent Margot, but how to convince a girl who lives entirely in her mind that sometimes life’s answers lie in the heart?

Amidst biological warfare, encrypted letters, and a German spy who wants to destroy not just them, but others they love, Margot and Drake will have to work together to save them all from the very secrets that brought them together.

***

When a highly secretive and intricate world meets brilliant characters, the result is a riveting story the reader won’t put down.

I can’t resist historical fiction books and The Number of Love was a page-turning story.

I’m more used to read about novels set during World War II, so I was even more curious to learn about a precedent period, and especially a world so new to me like the Codebreakers and the Room 40.

The story is written with precision and depth of understanding. Margot De Wilde is such a brilliant character, she is intelligent, with her numerical vision of the life: numbers mean everything and her impossibly dark eyes and her wit fascinated Drake Elton immediately. Her connection with numbers seems to give her the control of everything, at least until tragedy enters her life.

I’ve found Margot an incredible heroine and a relatable character in many ways, and I loved how Roseanna M. White described the events, the emotions, and this compelling world of the Codebreakers.

I already have another book of this author on my bookshelf, and I’m looking forward to reading it as soon as possible.

I’m so grateful to the author and Bethany House Publisher for providing me a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.

⭐⭐⭐⭐

Publication Date: May 1, 2019
Tiny Fox Press
Paperback & eBook; 308 Pages


France, October 1944. A Japanese American war hero has a secret.

A secret so awful he’d rather die than tell anyone–one so entwined with the brave act that made him a hero that he’s determined never to speak of the war. Ever.

Decades later his son, Daniel Tokunaga, a world-famous cardiac surgeon, is perplexed when the U.S. government comes calling, wanting to know about his father’s service with the 442nd Regimental Combat Team during WWII. Something terrible happened while his father was fighting the Germans in France, and the Department of Defense won’t stop its investigation until it’s determined exactly who did what.

Wanting answers of his own, Daniel upends his life to find out what his father did on a small, obscure hilltop half a world away. As his quest for the truth unravels his family’s catastrophic past, the only thing for certain is that nothing–his life, career, and family–can ever be the same again.
