BLOG TOUR w/ GIVEAWAY: Petticoat Spy by Carol Warburton


Colonial Massachusetts, 1775

Abigail Stowell is a rarity for her time. The comely young woman is educated, outspoken, and attuned to the charged political climate around her. She is a staunch Patriot. In short, she is a rebel. So when Gideon Whitlock, and avowed Tory, rides into her village, Abby is not only put off by his politics and arrogance but is also annoyed by her undeniable attraction to him.

When she observes a clandestine meeting between her Patriot father and Gideon, Abby soon realizes that in a world divided by loyalties, not everything is as it seems. Soon she is drawn deeper into political intrigue than she ever dreamed possible. And just as feelings begin to heat up between Abby and Gideon, the shot heard round the world ignites the beginning of war between the colonists and the British redcoats. There is no time for hesitation, and Abby finds herself thrust into a world of intrigue, treachery, and terror. Lives hang in the balance, and Abby will stop at nothing to support the Patriot movement—but will her allegiance to the cause mean losing the man she loves?


Carol Warburton has written an engrossing tale of betrayal and romance.  Abby is a spirited young woman who believes fervently in the Patriot cause.  When she meets Gideon she's attracted to him but he seems to be a Tory, which she can't abide.  As things between the colonists and the British heat up, Abby can't abide not being involved.  But spying is hard work, especially pretending to feel things that she doesn't.  On top of that, Abby learns that a dear family friend is under threat in her own home and Abby is determined to rescue her.  Clearly, Abby has her hands full, but she still has time to fall in love once she discovers Gideon's true loyalties.  But with war on the horizon, the risks she's taking could have explosive consequences.  I liked Abby right from the start, she's a feisty young lady who isn't afraid to fight for what she believes in, and Gideon is a great match for her as well.  This is a great historical romance.
