No "Blunder" Here! 16 Oct. 2014
By Vickie R. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Sarah Shaber knocks it out of the park again, with her latest installment in the Louise Pearlie series.

Louise enjoys some time with friends, away from her WWII era job with the OSS. She enjoys being with like-minded individuals and maybe lets a tiny bit of her guard down. At the same time, a Washington policeman, Sgt. Harvey Royal, is investigating a murder and as usual, everyone is keeping secrets. Throw in Communists, the return of one of landlady Phoebe's sons from the war, Louis Armstrong, and the Secretary of the Navy and you have a plot that keeps the pages turning.

Once again, I enjoy the very resourceful, but also very human Louise as she becomes "not the same woman who left her home in Wilmington, North Carolina in January 1942." Her personal growth in each book is measurable. I'm with her every step of the way.

This book was a great read. Louise's character is one you fall in ... 1 Nov. 2014
By Melody Margrave - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Louise's Blunder takes us back to a time of uncertainty in the United States. This book was a great read. Louise's character is one you fall in love with and want to continue reading about her life...the exciting spy, thrilling side of her, as well as the every day trials and tribulations of growing up in the time period.

I waited anxiously for this book. It did not disappoint. Sarah Shaber, it is as though you are writing for me. Now, I can't wait for the next Louise Book. Please, let there be a "next" Louise Book!

I am almost done with the whole series.
It gives you a feel for what was going on in the 1940ties in the USA.
The mystery keeps you guessing and I love the character development.

I have to say how much I loved this story 28 Mar. 2015
By Carol Lloyd - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I have to say how much I loved this story, and, indeed this entire series! The entire plot, starting with the body in the Tidal Basin, is first-rate.
As always, Louise's tenacity and instincts help save the day, along with her intelligence, commitment and resourcefulness. There is a great sense of time and place, with all the little details that instantly transport us to that melieu---the crowded conditions, dress, radio news, Victory gardens & rationing, the wounded son, and the Japanese relocation. The level of detail and suspense leading to Louise's entrapment on the boat really sets this book apart and makes for a wonderful entry in an enormously entertaining series. A terrific story, and I look forward to many more adventures for this amazing character. Highly recommended!
