The Prince of Spies

About the Book

 Luke Delacroix has the reputation of a charming man-about-town in Gilded Age Washington, DC. In reality, he is secretly carrying out an ambitious agenda in Congress. His current mission is to thwart the reelection of Congressman Clyde Magruder, his only real enemy in the world.

But trouble begins when Luke meets Marianne Magruder, the congressman's only daughter, whose job as a government photographer gives her unprecedented access to sites throughout the city. Luke is captivated by Marianne's quick wit and alluring charm, leading them both into a dangerous gamble to reconcile their feelings for each other with Luke's driving passion for vital reforms in Congress.

Can their newfound love survive a political firestorm, or will three generations of family rivalry drive them apart forever? (Goodreads)


My Thoughts

 Oh my goodness what a great conclusion to this series. Luke's story we all knew would be great and it was very well written. You could read this book on its own but I really would recommend starting with the first book in the series. The characters are so well written and developed. I loved the spunky personalities in this book and I really had no idea how exactly things would end. I feel like there were a couple of twists I wasn't expecting and that made it all the better. I loved that Marianne was a photographer and the historical aspect of this novel I thought was fascinating. This whole series has been very unique in how it presents agriculture and food related history and combines it with the politics of the times. The romance is sweet and there is also some great humor. This book has it all and really if you haven't read a Camden novel you need to! 

I highly recommend this book and this series. 

Five Stars.
