Hmm. Very interesting.

His Spanish Bride - Teresa Grant

I started this newly discovered series by reading this novella.  Chronologically,  this is the first story.  Publication-wise though, this came later and provided back story for how the MCs met. 


This was not what I expected.  On the other hand,  I don't know how I didn't see this coming.  Our spy couple came into their marriage with ulterior motives,  both with secrets,  each deceiving each other.  It's clear they both genuinely care for each other but deception has a way of coming back to bite you.  So you never have the feeling the relationship is on stable ground.  


The mystery is short,  it is a novella.  It's not hard to figure out who the culprit is and even to sympathize with their motives.  


I look forward to learning more about this interesting couple.
