    Mathematics prodigy Margot De Wilde lives in the realm of logic and certainty. As a cryptographer in WWI, connecting number keys to intercepted German telegrams gives her greater pleasure than her peers' dreams of domesticity. When a series of codebooks goes missing, Margot joins forces with handsome intelligence agent Drake Elton. Attentive, sincere, and unpredictable, Drake has an immediate connection with Margot that upends her structured view of the world, threatening to pull her toward the irrationality of emotions. As the race for the missing codebooks intensifies, Margot and Drake must thwart a dangerous enemy agent and calculate the risk for [of?] love. Acclaimed author White begins her newest series, the Codebreakers, with an exciting tale steeped in the historical intelligence game of the Great War. The Number of Love is captivating and features White's signature use of energetic plots and high-octane drama. Along with introducing new characters with endearing quirks that intrigue the reader and enhance the story, White also brings back beloved favorite figures from both her Shadows Over England and Ladies Of The Manor series.
