Ring of Secrets by Roseanna M. White

About the Book
Winter Reeves is an aristocratic Patriot forced to hide her heart amid the Loyalists of the City of New York. She has learned to keep her ears open so she can pass information on British movements to Robbie Townsend, her childhood friend, and his spy ring. If she's caught, if she's hung for espionage...well, she won't be. Robbie has taught her the tools of the trade: the wonders of invisible ink, drop locations and, most importantly, a good cover.
Bennet Lane returns to New York from his Yale professorship with one goal: to find General Washington's spy hidden among the ranks of the elite. Searching for a wife was supposed to be nothing more than a convenient cover story for his mission, but when he meets Winter, with her too-intelligent eyes in her too-blank face, he finds a mystery that can't be ignored.

Both believers...and both committed to a separate cause. Will their faith in God lead them to a shared destiny or lives lived apart?

My Thoughts
I have seen this book around a lot and the plot intrigued me. So I was extremely happy when a friend of mine sent me a copy for my birthday. I wasn't sure exactly what to expect but I was not prepared to love it as much as I did! This book was amazing and I loved every minute! Winter was awesome and I loved how she pretended to be completely dumb so that no one would suspect what she really was a spy. Her “mistakes” made me laugh a lot and I loved how clever she really was. Bennet was also a great character. I loved how he saw through Winter's facade and did his best to discover the true person behind her mask. The other characters were all well done as well from the ones you loved to the ones you hated they all were written perfectly. I loved this whole idea of a story of spies during the Revolutionary War and it made for quite the intriguing story. There were many things that I did not see coming at all, which was perfect for a spy story. I absolutely loved this author's writing and can't wait to read more!
