The Agency, A Spy in the House

Hola...The Agency, A Spy in the House is by Y. S. Lee. After being saved from the gallows, Mary Quinn leads a fairly ordinary life being educated at Miss Scrimshaw's Academy for Girls. But when Mary's schooling can no longer continue, she is offered a position more suited to her original occupation. On her first mission as a spy for the Agency, a top secret women's company, she must uncover what happened to a merchant's ships. The mystery shouldn't be too hard to solve, but can Mary keep herself from going in too far? From this book I remembered that I really enjoy action-y historical fiction. Mary is clever without being obnoxious and the fact that she has her own secrets makes her even more intriguing. This book is very entertaining, earning it three stars.
