“A rollicking spy caper in corsets. . . . This witty romp will delight fans of historical fiction as well as mystery lovers.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review of Palace of Spies

As a lady in waiting in King George’s London court, Peggy has survived a forced betrothal, royal scandals, and an attempt or two on her life. And now she has a new problem: her horrible fiancé has returned to claim her! To save her neck, or at least her hand in marriage, Peggy joins forces with her cousin Olivia and her sweetheart, Matthew. But if she doesn’t play her cards right, her career as courtier and spy might come to an end at the bottom of the river Thames . . .

Praise For Dangerous Deceptions (Palace of Spies #2)

"I was completely riveted by this tale of plots against the royal house, betrayal among friends, and unreliable spies!"
—Tamora Pierce

"More thoroughly satisfying mischief and mayhem are afoot."

"The inclusion of the Jacobite rebellion provides the catalyst for suspense and drama. All this plus a compelling heroine makes for an exciting addition to a promising series."
—School Library Journal

"Feisty, strong, and quick-witted, Peggy is a welcome change from vapid romance heroines . . . happily, at least one more title is in the works."

"Teenage girls will enjoy the focus on fashion and relationships even as Peggy boldly sidesteps her circumscribed roles as a woman and a maid of honor to reveal the truth underlying appearances."
