Kate's review
Australian author Christine Wells has been making a name for herself writing intelligent, suspenseful historical novels. Her latest offering, The Juliet Code, begins in 1947 when a young woman named Juliet Barnard is being interrogated about her role as an undercover wireless operator for the Allies in Nazi-occupied France during the war. She is wracked with guilt and remorse over the disappearance of a friend and colleague of hers, and so agrees to help her friend’s brother track down what happened to her. Her bravery, resolution, and quick wits prove to be more valuable than strength and ruthlessness.

Join us as we interview Christine Wells about her spy thriller romance The Juliet Code set in World War II France. Female spies have always held an exotic fascination for readers - think Mata Hari, Australia's Nancy Wake or Marvel's fictional Black Widow. Perhaps this fascination emerges from the sharp contrast between the courage involved and the relative physical frailty and social vulnerability of women. On so many counts, the female is outmatched - except for her intelligence and wit of course. And her main ally is the fact that she is constantly underestimated.
