First Chapter of Circle of Spies!

I can't quite believe it, but we're less than a month from the release of Circle of Spies! How exciting is that?? I really love this book, and while I'm sad to see the series come to an end, I'm really excited to welcome Marietta and Slade into the world.

On Monday, I just saw the first editorial review, which is pretty exciting (since it's good, LOL). RT Book Reviews gave it a 4 1/2 Star TOP PICK! rating, saying:
White’s Culper Ring historical spy series keeps getting better. This installment’s intricate plot, terrific twists and heart-stopping intrigue, as well as the heroine’s deeply moving journey of faith, grace, and redemption, create a memorable book to be devoured and cherished.
AND the book trailer just went live!

Yes, I'm hoping to whet your appetite. ;-) So to keep that going, I'm sharing the first chapter!

A Glimpse Was All She Had…
A Glimpse Was All She Needed

1865—Marietta Hughes never wanted to be a spy, but the family legacy of espionage is thrust upon her as the War Between the States rolls on. Unknown to her, the Knights of the Golden Circle—a Confederate secret society bent on destroying the Union her brother died for—has been meeting in a hidden lair beneath her home. Faced with the secrets of her late husband and his brother, who she thought she could trust with anything, Marietta’s world tilts out of control. Can she right it by accepting the call of the Culpers and protecting a Union agent infiltrating the KGC?

Slade Osborne, an undercover Pinkerton agent, is determined to do whatever is necessary to help end the conflict between the North and the South and restore his reputation. When he infiltrates this secret cell, it isn’t just their inner workings that baffle him—it’s the beautiful woman who seems to be a puppet for the new leader and yet…so much more.

Do they dare trust each other in this circle of intrigue? Will their shared faith sustain them? And can Mari and Slade stymie the enemy long enough to see their beloved country reunited?
