#Booktour: Refuge for Masterminds (Stranje House #3) by @KatBaldwin @Jeanbooknerd #BookReview #Giveaway

It’s 1814. Napoleon has escaped his imprisonment on Elba. Britain is at war on four fronts. And at Stranje House, a School for Unusual Girls, five young ladies are secretly being trained for a world of spies, diplomacy, and war…

Napoleon’s invasion of England is underway and someone at Stranje House is sneaking information to his spies. Lady Jane Moore is determined to find out who it is. If anyone can discover the traitor, it is Jane—for, according to headmistress Emma Stranje, Lady Jane is a mastermind.

Jane doesn’t consider herself a mastermind. It’s just that she tends to grasp the facts of a situation quickly, and by doing so, she’s able to devise and implement a sensible course of action. Is Jane enough of a mastermind to save the brash young American inventor Alexander Sinclair, her friends at Stranje House, and possibly England itself?

Can I scream?? YES YES AND YES this is the story I have been waiting for and man I really dont want this series to end! I really love how these books that even though its in a different POV you dont miss anything as the series goes along its way.  I really love this way of storytelling. And this one I just couldnt down! 

I love Lady Jane!  Her mind is so amazing and this book in her POV was so GOOD! I will defintly be rereading these again soon! I was so sad that I didnt have time to share much (ANYTHING) about this book on my social media (sickness is running rampid!) So I hope to have the time soon to do an entire three day share about these books! Because that is just how good they are!  

This one wither or not you have read this series you need to!! This one worked so well, the plot/story, characters, and setting came together so flawlessly!  I really hope that these do well I want a movie or a tv series! If you are a fan of Historical Fiction and Young Adult then this is the series for you.  

Jane and Alexander were a dream come true.  I loved that this book gave me many laughs throughout and I really loved their conversations. The romance between then was so cute I just couldn't get enough of it. I love how Baldwin takes these girls and weaves a story with each one taking us ever closer to the end that I know is coming.  This one has all the action you need for a great story and I was on the edge of my seat for most of it.  This one ends very well just as I knew it would. It was exciting and tied up all the loose ends within this story as well as getting us ready for the next book.  I really cant wait to see who we get next.  I never want this series to end!  

This was a breathtaking FANTASTIC read from start to finish. 

Kathleen we need a spin-off series wth the leading guy's POVs now LOL.
