The Number of Love

The number of Love, a new series by author Roseanna White, comprises of intrigue and complex characters as the Codebreakers first introduces us to Margot DeWilde, an extremely intelligent young lady. Margot's world revolves around numbers. During WWI she thrives in Room 40, decoding German messages during a time when women were expected to be nothing more than a secretary.

When Drake Elton meets Margot, he is captivated by how different she is from every other woman he has met. He pursues her by learning her numbers language, and over time, gets to know her and her quirky sense of humor.

I found the book to be engaging with a different twist in teaching us a little bit more about the intelligence operations of the British during the War. The mystery and adventure were well played, adding a bit of romance to the mix.

I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book which I received from the publisher. All thoughts and opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
