      During preparations for the upcoming Christmas with her family, Melbourne's Annabel Logan answered a telephone call in the study. The woman on the other end told Annabel she was in danger and needed Annabel to go to her immediately – she also told her she was her grandmother. Annabel was taken-aback – her grandmother had been dead for years; there was no way this strange woman could be her mother’s mother.But from a sense of the importance of the phone call, Annabel made her way to England [...]

      This is a compelling story of intrigue, spies, danger betrayal and secrets that are finally going to come out years after the Second World War. It all starts when Annabel Logan gets a strange phone call from a woman claiming to be her grandmother Caroline Banks (Carrie) saying that she is in danger and needs her to travel from Australia England immediately and wow what a journey it is for Annabel, this one had me turning the pages with so much curiosity about what was going to happen, this is a [...]

      I loved this book. Took me just a couple of days to read it and I just did not want to put it down. I haven't read any of Well's work before but this one transfixed me and transported me back in time, trying to work out what had happened and what was happening today.There were so many levels to this story and I loved them all!!

      Another gorgeous cover & intriguing title made me very keen to read Christine Wells’s new book, The Traitor’s Girl, which moves between contemporary times and war-torn London in the 30s. I love novels with dual timelines, and really enjoyed Christine Wells’s earlier book, The Wife’s Tale. I also love books about female spies and resistance fighters, so this was always going to appeal to me. Annabel Logan thinks she has no family, but one day hears from her long-lost grandmother beggi [...]

      I was lucky enough to win this book on . Thank you Christine for my signed copy. I thoroughly enjoyed this beautifully crafted story.

      From the outset, this novel reminded me so much of one of my all-time favourites — Restless by William Boyd — that I could not help but love it, turning the pages late into the night. Australian Annabel receives a phone call from a woman claiming to be her dead grandmother, Carrie. And she is in danger. So Annabel drops everything to cross the world and meet this long lost relative, finding her mysteriously vanished, and uncovering secrets of why she’d grown up believing a lie. Other secre [...]

      Middle of the road, another pleasant read. Pleasant reads are the bread and butter of a constant reader - you can't survive on a diet of highbrow alone, you need some chill out, relax and not think too much reads.A blend of the past and the present, a war story mixed up with the present day clue finding mission. Fairly standard but fast paced.

    10. Rachel says:

      Another intriguing, dual-time line story from Christine Wells. Again I found the older historical story much more engrossing than the fairly vanillary modern one, but in some ways the modern story is really just a vehicle to explore the older.Annabelle receives a phone-call out of the blue from the grandmother she did not know was still alive, requesting she visit her in England. This draws Annabelle into a web of intrigue and espionage as Caroline Bank's life as an MI5 agent provocateur unfolds [...]

      An interesting story of WW2, aongmwith a connection to a later period. Annabel receives a phone call from someone who claimed to be her grandmother, who, as far as Annabel knew, had disappeared and was supposed to be dead. So Annabel flies to England to discover the truth, which leads to the story of her grandmother's involvement with the secret services during WW2. This was a good read, taking us along some very interesting paths to the finale. I enjoyed the characters and the development of th [...]

    12. V.E. Lynne says:

      Beautifully told tale of espionage and treason by double agents for the USSR in Britain during World War II and afterwards, a practice that was most likely widespread (see the case of the Cambridge spies) but is too often neglected by authors. The plot goes back and forth between the two protagonists, 1990s Annabel and her 1940s grandmother Caroline, but nonetheless the story flows well. The ending is perhaps not as strong as the rest of the book however I will definitely look for other novels b [...]

      I loved this!! Annabel was a gorgeous heroine - I enjoyed following her adventure to discover the truth about her grandmother’s mysterious past. The plot kept me turning the pages and the romance was perfectly paced. Extra points for the delicious cover!

    14. Janine says:

      This was an interesting story, especially the war time one but there were inconsistencies that annoyed me a bit.

    15. Sharni Alexander says:

      Brilliant! This book kept me on the edge of my seat the whole way through. The mix of romance, suspense and violence with secret agents thrown in was tantalising.5/5!!

    16. Leanne Francis says:

      Loved this latest novel by Christine Wells, historical fiction at its finest

    17. Diane says:

      Loved it!

    18. Cynthia says:

      The intrigue and mystery gradually builds throughout the story. Spies and double agents abound in this dual storyline. The modern thread of the story, however, falls a bit flat for me.
