Velvet Undercover takes place during the First World War, where spies and secret agents run amok. Enter Samantha Donaldson. All of her life she’s been solving puzzles with her father, unknowingly training to be one of the next spies in La Dame Blanche, a mostly female organization (an oddity for its time). However, one day her father mysteriously vanishes, leaving Samantha and her mother barely hanging on. Electing to take a mission to get information on her father’s whereabouts, Samantha is plunged undercover as Sophia Therese Von Schonburg, a distant relative to one of Germany’s Duchesses. Now she must locate and extract another agent, code-named Velvet. However, there’s one tiny problem: there’s no known information about Velvet or who she could possibly be. It’s up to Sam to decide who she can trust, and she had better choose wisely.
Velvet Undercover was absolutely amazing to read. Each character had their own little quirks and it brought the book to life in great detail. Also, near the end there was an awesome little twist that was so completely unexpected that I couldn’t stop smiling for the remainder of the book.
