HERE’S WHAT THEY’RE SAYING ABOUT GENTEEL SECRETS

1) “Genteel Secrets is a beautiful story which transports the reader in time. I imagined living with war raging around me, the sudden adaptation to change they’d have to make, families forced to leave their homes, their lives at stake running for safety. True to life historical fiction at its best, it’s so much more than romance. I could see this novel being made into a movie.”

2) “Super writing, super reading, another must for all history buffs out there.”

3) “This is just beautiful. Set against the backdrop of the American Civil War and dealing with the issue of slavery, this is a well-written spy romance and a tale of two unlikely partners in crime. A fan of Mallery’s other work I am in awe at her versatility and the great skill of characterisation. There is much background to the stories, i.e. the journey over from Europe, and a lot about humanity written into this: Friendships that conquer racial divide, romance that blooms in unexpected ways, bravery and a wonderful storyline.”
4) “I could not turn the pages fast enough to find out what happened next. The ending was unexpected and restored my faith in humanity. If you like fast-paced historical drama, this is one book you will not want to miss. I loved it!” – #1 Romance Novel 2016 Colleen Chesebro Review Awards

5) “Highly recommended for all fans of historical fiction genre! Absolutely outstanding!”

6) “Mallery’s way with words is mesmerizing – old names form the past, its of atmosphere that seem only witnesses of the era would know as well, and a taut story that leaves us satisfied but eager for more.”

7) “All in all, a plot that flows easily, characters are well developed and a superlative ending. Outstanding in all aspects for all historical fiction buffs!”
