    The Paris Spy by Susan Elia MacNeal is a 2017 Bantam publication I admit I have been hoarding this book I read the first six in rapid succession, but when I realized I only had one left and there could be a long wait before book eight, I decided to hold on to this one a little while But, my willpower gave out LOL When we last touched base with Maggie, she was headed to France with fellow SOE agents Hugh and Sarah After a dull and dreary waiting period, she finally assumes her new identity The Paris Spy by Susan Elia MacNeal is a 2017 Bantam publication I admit I have been hoarding this book I read the first six in rapid succession, but when I realized I only had one left and there could be a long wait before book eight, I decided to hold on to this one a little while But, my willpower gave out LOL When we last touched base with Maggie, she was headed to France with fellow SOE agents Hugh and Sarah After a dull and dreary waiting period, she finally assumes her new identity and moves to the Ritz where she meets the infamous Coco Chanel But, big trouble is brewing, and Maggie is desperate to find a SOE member she s lost contact with and of course she s still holding out hope that she might locate her sister Intrigue is a constant hallmark of this series, with each installment becomingandintense as the world war becomes increasingly brutal and people have begun to sacrifice integrity for victory at any cost This episode is a real nail biter There is a lot going on, as always, and Maggie must be sharper than ever to keep from being found out There are a few gut wrenching developments, but also some rays of hope where Maggie s sister is concerned I was on the edge of my seat for the last quarter of the book It was action packed, emotionally draining, and unbearably suspenseful The ending is the only gripe I have because it is a serious cliffhanger and I will have to wait all the way until August to find out what happens next UGH However, I am positive it will be well worth the wait 4.5 stars

    This would have been a five if this book hadn t done the same thing the last one in the series did The mystery was solved, the villain had been captured, and the plot had reached a satisfying resolutionand then there was another chunk of text leading up to a totally unnecessary cliffhanger So now, again, readers have to wait a year orto find out what happens next If I like the author s voice and the characters in a series, I don t have to be tricked into buying the next book Ide This would have been a five if this book hadn t done the same thing the last one in the series did The mystery was solved, the villain had been captured, and the plot had reached a satisfying resolutionand then there was another chunk of text leading up to a totally unnecessary cliffhanger So now, again, readers have to wait a year orto find out what happens next If I like the author s voice and the characters in a series, I don t have to be tricked into buying the next book Ideally, each entry in a series should to be able to stand on its own Leaving a few remaining loose ends is fine if they are small intriguing ones, but I really hate it when a novel ends with a large unresolved question about the protagonist s fate

    The Paris Spy is the seventh installment in the Maggie Hope series and my favorite book in the series I began reading the series when MacNeal first wrote Mr Churchill s Secretary and always eagerly anticipate Maggie s next adventure The Paris Spy does not disappoint as Maggie navigates Nazi occupied Paris on a mission to recover two individuals that have disappeared, one another SOE spy and the other her half sister Coco Chanel makes an appearance, and since Maggie is posing as an engaged so The Paris Spy is the seventh installment in the Maggie Hope series and my favorite book in the series I began reading the series when MacNeal first wrote Mr Churchill s Secretary and always eagerly anticipate Maggie s next adventure The Paris Spy does not disappoint as Maggie navigates Nazi occupied Paris on a mission to recover two individuals that have disappeared, one another SOE spy and the other her half sister Coco Chanel makes an appearance, and since Maggie is posing as an engaged socialite gathering her trousseau, there is a focus on 1940 s fashion which I thoroughly enjoyed Paris is my favorite place to visit, and I was fascinated by MacNeal s details regarding Nazi occupied Paris she clearly researched extensively Even though I have read countless World War 2 books dealing with this time period in Paris, I was unaware that the Nazis made Paris operate on Berlin time two hours ahead and how silent the streets became because no one but Nazi officers drove cars for the most part While it is common knowledge that the Nazis were horrifically cruel, the sections of the book describing atrocious Nazi behavior made my stomach turn and once again question how Germany managed to sink so low On the flip side, I always love anecdotes about Parisians who resisted, and The Paris Spy contains many honorable Parisians subtly standing up for what they knew was right.This series is outstanding, and I highly recommend The Paris Spy and the other 6 books before it Thanks to Bantam for this ARC in exchange for an honest review

    I think this book was well written with descriptive passages I almost didn t read it when I realized it was part of one of those series but its being the first one I ve read, it didn t seem predictable like that I wouldn t read another of her Maggie series books tho I would have given this 5 stars, except for the inane, frivolous, totally improbable conversation SPOILER between the 2 women and the pilot toward the end I wondered why anyone could possibly be dumb enough to accuse someone I think this book was well written with descriptive passages I almost didn t read it when I realized it was part of one of those series but its being the first one I ve read, it didn t seem predictable like that I wouldn t read another of her Maggie series books tho I would have given this 5 stars, except for the inane, frivolous, totally improbable conversation SPOILER between the 2 women and the pilot toward the end I wondered why anyone could possibly be dumb enough to accuse someone while that person is actively flying the plane you re in or maybe just to fit in onescary incident I also didn t appreciate the twist in the last sentence sort of a clever, but cheap trick to get the reader intrigued to read the following book in the series.I did learn some interesting facts in the book about the decision to land at Normandy which I ve also researched elsewhere now What the 2 women accomplished physically made me motivated to get stronger as you never know the future.The narrator did an excellent job except for a couple of pronunciation errors, which I noticed at the time, but have forgotten now
