Praise For Maid of Secrets

"This lively and fast-paced debut has plenty of action and plot twists to keep readers fully engaged."

"Whether recounting her perilous missions or her moral dilemmas, Meg’s first-person narrative is consistently engaging. Meg’s adventure comes to a satisfying conclusion while leaving the door open for sequels."



"This novel encompasses all the glory, excess, and intrigue of Queen Elizabeth I’s reign; the issues surrounding Catholicism versus the Church of England; and the poor relationship between Spain and England. Full of adventure and romance and starring a very likable, spunky protagonist, this is an enjoyable historical read."
