The Number of Love by Roseanna M. White

About the Book
Three years into the Great War, England's greatest asset is their intelligence network--field agents risking their lives to gather information, and codebreakers able to crack every German telegram. Margot De Wilde thrives in the environment of the secretive Room 40, where she spends her days deciphering intercepted messages. But when her world is turned upside down by an unexpected loss, for the first time in her life numbers aren't enough.
Drake Elton returns wounded from the field, followed by an enemy who just won't give up. He's smitten quickly by the intelligent Margot, but how can he convince a girl who lives entirely in her mind that sometimes life's answers lie in the heart?

Amid biological warfare, encrypted letters, and a German spy who wants to destroy not just them but others they love, Margot and Drake will have to work together to save themselves from the very secrets that brought them together.

My Thoughts
Roseanna M. White’s books are always among my most anticipated releases each year and they always find a place on my favorites list. And this one was no different! I completely loved every single second of it!
After meeting Margot in the last series all of us readers were begging for her story and White delivered in a spectacular way! Margot is definitely unique, she’s a mathematical genius in a time when women were still expected to do little more than be a wife and mother. She sees things in a different way than the rest of the world and views everything through numbers and facts instead of feelings. I absolutely loved how the author wrote her thoughts in such a way that truly got inside her head and saw things from her unique perspective. But even though she didn’t always understand people or their feelings I loved how she did try and she cared about and for them in her own way.
Drake was an amazing hero and the perfect match for Margot! I loved loved loved the way her pursued her without pushing. He met her on her level and slowly won her over. He had me stupidly grinning so many times as he broke down her walls! And he wasn’t just a gentleman in his pursuit of Margot he was just an all around stand-up guy. From his dedication to his job and the selfless work he did to the way he protected and loved his sister, to helping his friends without being asked he was completely deserving of the title of hero.
One of my favorite things about Margot and Drake’s relationship was the banter between them that started from the very first time they met! Their wit was evenly matched and made for hilarious conversations!
It was also so much fun to have some characters from the Ladies of the Manor and Shadows Over England series pop in! I love catching up with old friends!
Basically this book was amazing and you need to read it! I cannot wait for the next book, especially since it’s about Camden!
