Your next summer read is full of romance and intrigue!


By Award-Winning Novelist, Rhonda Ortiz

Releasing August 8th!

Back Cover Copy:

Now engaged, Molly Chase and new federal intelligencer Josiah Robb want nothing more than to settle into quiet married life—or as quiet as life can be when one is hunting down a ring of traitors among Boston’s elite. But the
plan has one glaring flaw: Molly herself, and the madness that has plagued her since her father’s death. Until Molly proves herself an asset rather than a liability,
Josiah’s investigation cannot move forward.

Intelligencer Eliza Hall thought she had left her troubles behind in Philadelphia long ago. When she is sent back to follow a suspect, she’s ready to acknowledge the truth and make her peace—except that the man she loves, who doesn’t know about her past, is assigned to come with her. Now she must outwit her fellow spy and closest friend, lest he hate her for what she had been, while they maneuver to prevent Revolutionary France from dragging the fledgling United States into a war it cannot afford.

Both women are in search of a safe harbor. Little do they expect the winds to blow them into the most tumultuous waters of all— back home.

My humble review:

Adrift, the second novel in author Rhonda Ortiz’s Molly Chase series, follows the cast of multi-layered, intriguing, and relatable characters introduced in the first novel, In Pieces. I haven’t been this invested in a literary couple since I read the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon. Adrift’s Molly and Josiah are full of lovable contradictions, realistic struggles, and inspiring attributes.

Ortiz tackles 18th-century prejudice against race, religion, gender, and class with gentle authenticity while challenging her readers to consider their own reactions to these issues in the present.

Five Stars! Brava!
