    The Cryptographer's Dilemma

    Published by Connie Porter Saunders on Aug 06, 2021

    There are so many reasons to love this book! It has interesting facts about WWII, if is filled with danger and suspense, and there is also a sweet romance. Author Johnnie Alexander uses the true facts of Velvalee Dickinson, an American woman convicted of selling information to the Japanese government during World War II, and combines them with fictional details to create a fascinating story. I enjoyed learning about coding and the art of deciphering messages, and I loved the many references to the WWII era. As cryptographer Eloise Marshall and FBI agent Phillip Clayton travel across the country to uncover clues, there are many mentions of popular movies, and even their budding attraction to each other is reminiscent of 1940s courtships. Alexander's plot is intriguing, the characters are well-developed, and I especially enjoyed her interpretation of Velvalee's thoughts and actions. I was drawn into this story immediately and my attention never waned. This is the first book of a new series, Heroines of WWII, and I look forward to the books that follow. I recommend The Cryptographer's Dilemma to all who enjoy historical Christian romance. I received a complimentary copy of this book from Barbour Publishing and was under no obligation to post a review. These are my own thoughts.
