I love historical mysteries so when I saw this one on Amazon Vine I could not pass it up. This is a very well researched novel. There is a great mix of real people and real events added to the fictional situations and characters. Look for numerous red herrings and characters who are not what they seem. Just when you think you know what is happening the story takes an unusual turn. Included are quotes from the speeches Churchill’s gave as the war was beginning. Some were familiar to me but others were new. All of that was part of the world building. The scene for the story had to be set and a lot of historical background was required for the world building in this first book. There is a solution to the mystery in this book but there is also the set up for future books in the series. Mr. Churchill’s Secretary is a great start to a new historical mystery series.
