My Wicked LIttle Lies by Victoria Alexander, 352 pages, read by Robin, on 02/16/2012

My Wicked Little Lies  This book was a nice, easy, light read that was a bit different than the typical historical romance. When the book begins, Evelyn (the heroine) is already married to the hero, Adrian. They’ve been married for two years and are quite happy, even though they both are reluctant to discuss their lives before they met. For good reason, so they think, because they were both spies for the British government. Adrian knows that Evelyn was a spy, Evelyn does not know that Adrian was the mysterious “Sir” that she recieved her instructions and the occaional flirty message from while she was a spy. The story, then, is the revelation of Evelyn and Adrian’s slightly notorious pasts and the misunderstandings and miscommunications that happen along the way. The story was entertaining, the characters mostly believable and sympathetic. The romance, because the characters had been married for two years, was a bit unorthodox, but still satisfying for those who want a true love story.
