Ellis Dumont finds a man in New Orleans Grey unconscious on Dumont property in 1836. As his fevers rage, the man mutters strange things about treasures and war. Either Claiborne Gentry has lost his mind or he’s a spy for the American president—or worse, for the Mexican enemy that threatens their very lives. With the men of her family away, Ellis must stand courageous and decide who she can trust. Will she put her selfish wants ahead of the future of the republic or travel with Clay to Mission San Jose to help end the war?

I have really enjoyed this whole series so far. While I tend to read a lot of historical fiction, this series challenges me to also read historical stories outside of my typical time periods and events. While I certainly have my favorites in the series, there aren’t any so far that I’ve really disliked.
Considering the fact that I read this book in one sitting, I certainly found it interesting. I was fairly underwhelmed by a lack of action though. It didn’t have a satisfying conclusion to several pieces of the story and it ended too abruptly. I enjoyed reading about Ellis and Clay and how their relationship developed, and I got a few laughs out of some of their witty humor. I would have liked to see more development behind Clay’s past and his special mission.
So while I have some mixed emotions about this chapter in the series, I’m still glad I read it and can’t wait to see what comes next. I would have liked to see more to the ending, but I enjoyed the rest of the story. I’d easily recommend it to other historical fiction fans.
