Waiting on Wednesday: Conspiracy of Blood and Smoke

Conspiracy of Blood and Smoke (Prisoner of Night and Fog, #2)
(Prisoner of Night and Fog #2)
Author: Anne Blankman
Genre: Young Adult Historical Fiction
Publisher: Balzer + Bray
 
Synopsis via Goodreads:
The girl known as Gretchen Whitestone has a secret: She used to be part of Adolf Hitler’s inner circle. More than a year after she made an enemy of her old family friend and fled Munich, she lives with a kindly English family, posing as an ordinary German immigrant, and is preparing to graduate from high school. Her love, Daniel Cohen, is a reporter in town. For the first time in her life, Gretchen is content.

But then, Daniel gets a telegram that sends him back to Germany, and Gretchen’s world turns upside-down. And when she receives word that Daniel is wanted for murder, she has to face the danger she thought she’d escaped-and return to her homeland.

Gretchen must do everything she can to avoid capture and recognition, even though saving Daniel will mean consorting with her former friends, the Nazi elite. And as they work to clear Daniel’s name, Gretchen and Daniel discover a deadly conspiracy stretching from the slums of Berlin to the Reichstag itself. Can they dig up the explosive truth and get out in time-or will Hitler discover them first?
  
 
 
COMING APRIL 21st 2015
 
I love reading World War 2 historical fiction. When the first book Prisoner of Night and Fog came out last year I immediately grabbed it up and absolutely loved it. I have been eagerly waiting to hear what happens to Gretchen next. If you have not started this series yet and enjoy historical fiction I highly recommend picking it up before the sequel comes out in April!
