Book synopsis of The Secret Service of Tea and Treason:
THE SECRET SERVICE OF TEA AND TREASON by India Holton
Two rival spies must brave pirates, witches, and fake matrimony to save the Queen.
Known as Agent A, Alice is the top operative within the Agency of Undercover Note Takers, a secret government intelligence group that is fortunately better at espionage than at naming itself. From managing deceptive witches to bored aristocratic ladies, nothing is beyond Alice’s capabilities. She has a steely composure and a plan always up her sleeve (alongside a dagger and an embroidered handkerchief). So when rumors of an assassination plot begin to circulate, she’s immediately assigned to the case.
But she’s not working alone. Daniel Bixby, otherwise known as Agent B and Alice’s greatest rival, is given the most challenging undercover assignment of his life— pretending to be Alice’s husband. Together they will assume the identity of a married couple, infiltrate a pirate house party, and foil their unpatriotic plans.
Determined to remain consummate professionals, Alice and Daniel must ignore the growing attraction between them, especially since acting on it might prove more dangerous than their target.
MY THOUGHTS: The Secret Service of Tea and Treason
I have ANOTHER confession, similar to the one in my last post. 😂 I haven’t read the first two books in this series.🙈 BUT, I am planning on changing that soon!
Now, book friends you don’t necessarily need to read these in order! That’s the beauty of this book (and probably this series). There might be a few spoiler-ish points, but this book feels like it can stand alone on its own two beautifully humorous feet.
Friends, I adored this book! I haven’t laughed so hard where my other half is looking at me asking if I’m going to be okay.😂🤣
There was something so refreshing about this deliciously crafted novel, about two orphans who are recruited into the secret service at a very young age and grow into adults who yearn for something more than the robotic muscle memory of their day-to-day 007 lives.
With neurodivergent representation, there’s only one bed trope, grumpy plus grumpy (which I LOVE), fake marriage, plus belly laugh moments that will have you rolling off your couch, readers will thoroughly enjoy Holton’s third novel in her Dangerous Damsels Series starting on page one.
Go pre-order this one!
Happy Reading ~ Cece
