Spying on the Spy is a very good short story that I would love to read more of. It is July, 1814, and we are in a ballroom attending a party in Washington City. Georgina Vandenberg is a shy young debutante, uncomfortable and out of place as she watches the dancing from the safety of the refreshment table. When she suddenly sees a very handsome man heading in her direction, who introduces himself as Mr. Preston Beaumont, Georgina is not sure why of all the beautiful girls in the room he would choose her. Mr. Beaumont proves to be charming and convinces her to come and dance, and then go out on the terrace for some fresh air. Georgina is sure there is an ulterior motive and she is going to find out what it could possibly be. What follows is a must-read which I will not tell you about, but urge you to read this short story for yourself to find out what Mr. Beaumont is really up to and why he needs Georgina’s help.

Spying on the Spy does not have too many pages, but each one is full of intrigue, excitement, fun, mystery and so much more. Author Lisa Cox has written a story that pulled me right onto the dance floor and beyond, and I felt as though I was at the ball and a friend of Georgina’s. Spying on the Spy is a sure hit and, if it was expanded upon, it would be a wonderful TV movie. I give Spying on the Spy a high rating for excellence and hope readers will put it on the top of their reading lists.
