In the second book of the series, India Black and the Widow of Windsor, India and French are undercover once again this time to save the life of a queen. Queen Victoria has been persuaded to spend the Christmas season in Scotland where her enemies plan to end her reign and her life. India and French are incognito to smoke out the would-be assassins. When a couple of near misses bring them no closer to the identity of their quarry, they start worrying that next time will be dead on.
India Black is just as straight forward and tough as ever. She has a colourful way of expressing herself and giving her opinions on everyone from her 'bints' to the Queen of England. She doesn't have any sexy times in this one though she does have a tangle with Prince Albert (Bertie). The heat between her and French gets cranked up a bit. I think he's got a secret. Hmm, we shall see.
India scrambles around the story following suspicious dudes while posing as a lady's maid for an feisty elderly countess. When she's not finding secret passageways, she's reading Bible stories. Quite a change for India. It was fun reading and wondering if she could hold her tongue.
I ripped through India Black and the Widow of Windsor over a day or two. It was great fun and left me wanting more. I can't wait for the next book in the series to see where the India/French relationship is going to go.
If you enjoyed the first India Black novel, you'll like India Black and the Widow of Windsor too. I think it's even better.Thanks local library digital site! This is the first ebook I borrowed and read on my ereader.
