The Maggie Hope Series

Post by LCW » Sun February 23rd, 2020, 4:10 am

Is anyone familiar with the WWII spy novel series about Maggie Hope? Just wondering if you have to read them in order. I purchased a book way down the line, The Prisoner in the Castle.

Interest in HF: started in childhood with the classics, which, IMHO are HF even if they were contemporary when written.
Favourite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger
Preferred HF: Currently prefer 1600 and earlier, but I'll read anything that keeps me turning the page.

Hi MLE! Nice to "see" you. I still recognize and remember almost everyone here. Misfit said everyone was on Goodreads now but I can't find anyone. I find that site confusing to navigate.

Welcome back LCW! So that's where everyone's gone...I have tried Good Reads a couple of times but also found it a bit of a maze, I use it occasionally for reviews but personally prefer Library thing.
