‘The Sniper’s Kiss’ is an epic tale of one woman’s love for another and what she is willing to go through to be with her. It is a beautiful love story between two characters that pulled at my heart strings. Mia is American and works for the White House during World War 2. When she is sent to the Soviet Union to investigate the lend-lease programme she meets Alexia, a stunning Kremlin guard. One kiss is all it took to change their lives. The adventure they both end up living takes place among famous figures of history such as FDR, Eleanor Roosevelt and Lorena Hicks, Stalin and Churchill. Justine Saracen has researched this period so well and her writing made me feel as if I was there amongst the noises, smells and tragedies of war. A truly fantastic book that I highly recommend.
I was given this ARC by Netgalley and Bold Strokes Books in return for an honest review.
