Roseanna M. White: The Number of Love





By Kelly Bridgewater

About the Book:
Title: The Number of Love
Author: Roseanna M. White
Publisher: Bethany House
Release Date: June 4, 2019

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:

The Number of Love by Roseanna M. White was my most anticipated book of the year. I couldn't wait to read about spies, history, and code breakers. The cover is beautiful and definitely something to admire. But unfortunately, White's novel really didn't hit it out of the park for me. The story has love in its title, and majority of the story is about the romance between Drake and Margot De Wilde. The novel starts with a little bit of spy information for Drake, then it moves pretty far away, before coming back in the last fifteen percent in the novel. The main heroine thinks of math in everything she does. She loses her mother early on in the novel, but she seems to move on pretty quickly. Yes, it comes up a couple of times, but as someone who lost a parent I was really close to, this pain doesn't just move on so quickly. Margot doesn't really change either. She is still the math nerd  but falls in love with Drake by the end of the novel. Overall, The Number of Love was not what I expected it to be. I wanted a spy novel with history and elements of love. Not have the romance take over the whole plot. Others who are fans of historical romance might devour this novel, but it didn't deliver for me. 

I received a complimentary copy of The Number of Love by Roseanna M. White from Bethany House Publishers and JustRead Tours, but the opinions stated are all my own.
