I’m always up for new Regency fiction. Throw in some spies, a swoony hero, and a strong heroine? Sign me up please!
Lady Eliza Beckett is certainly not a typical Regency heroine. For starters, she has a eidetic memory which comes in handy for snooping around high-stakes documents and correspondence. Because rather than bide her time embroidering on a settee or playing Whist in the drawing room, she is instead Shadow – the code name for England’s most notorious spy and assassin. I loved that she knows her own mind, that she doesn’t take condescension from ‘the boys club’, and that she kicks butt and takes names.
There are a few things that could be a bit tighter. For example, a lot of the dialogue feels like narrative/info dumping and overall the narrative itself leans more toward telling than showing. Also, the romance felt a tad rushed and could have used some more development between the initial sizzle of chemistry and declarations of love. Besides the kisses. Lots of kisses. Good kisses. And the swoony Lord Benedict. But it needed more emotional dimension, in my opinion.
Bottom Line: Saving Shadow is full of intrigue and romance! From the strong, independent heroine to the dashing hero and most of the people in between, the characters are vibrant and engaging. While it’s true that this debut novel could use a little tightening, overall it is an enjoyable adventure!

-Monthly Book Club Review *Yvonne*
You know it’s a good book when it is really late at night and your eyes keep wanting to shut and you finally have to force yourself to put the book down so you can sleep.
The main characters were easy to like and were not annoying at all. I love that it was a clean romance novel, one I can and will recommend to my 17 year old and not have to worry about sex or bad language.
I will definitely buy her future novels and look forward to when that time comes!
Too disappointing because I LOVE a good historical spy story. Try Joanne Bourne, C S Harris, Allysa Alexander, Lucinda Brant, or even a few of Joan Smith to see well done spy/suspense novels.
