The Alice Network - Kate Quinn
Like most historical novels, this book has two story threads. Charlie St Clair, a young American socialite who in 1947 comes to Europe to search for her young cousin Rose, who was last heard of in France several years earlier. When her search begins she meets the rough and tough Eve Gardiner, who has her own story of being in France over the first world war.
Their story begins to weave together as both women begin to rely on each other as they travel between cities searching for clues.
At moments the characters came across a bit cliched and predictable but I did like that they were a little flawed and trying to overcome their demons, that made the story still feel a little fresh and not the usual war story. 5/5
