3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but dull.
This series seems to get less exciting the more books you read. I am not sure what it is about it. This book was extremely dull in the middle, but the beginning is suspenseful and the ending you just have to stick around for!

5.0 out of 5 stars This book has love, espionage, and strong Christian values., Feb. 8 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: To Know Her By Name #1 (Paperback)
This Lori Wick novel is one of love and espionage, mixed with a strong Christian emphasis. To Know Her by Name is easy to read, but should be read after reading the two books leading uup to this one in its series. Callie Jennings and McKay Harrington are two completely different types of characters, but they share a common interest, working for the Treasury Department after the American Civil War. Both are employed by Nick Wallace. McKay and Callie meet unexpectedly in the woods, due to a twist of fate, or, as I like to call it, God's will. This book is interesting because of Callie's diverse personality. Sometimes, it is hard to know what she will do next. She is an undercover spy who tries to catch Duncan Phipps, a wealthy banker, in the act of dirty dealings. She poses as both a man and a women in an attempt to discover the secret dealings of Duncan and his men. Her last disguise for the case includes a blond wig, a Scandinavian accent, and a maid's occupation. Unlike Callie, McKay seems to have a steady and unmoving personality. While Callie is spying, he is performing his duty as a spot checker to different banks questionably involved with Duncan. Intertwined with Duncan's schemes are Callie's brothers, Govern and Jubal Hackett. This bend in the story adds to Callie's indecision on whether to aid the Treasury Department in the arrests of the Duncan gang of swindlers. In the end, Callie is put in a dangerous situation out of which only God can help her. As her mind is racing she thinks, "I have no idea what to do here, Lord. Does Nick even know that I'm in trouble? If he didn't try to see me last night, then he probably doesn't know anything. Would Nick want me to keep my mouth shut during torture?" This book also has an under current of symbolism. For example, Callie's secluded cabin in the woods, with only two male brothers for neighbors, symbolizes Callie's introverted nature. Due to her job, her life is filled with deception and duty, which causes her to keep her distance from people, including friends, which she has very few of. Her two closest friends are Nick and Camille Wallace, who are more like parents than friends. I highly recommend this author and book to anyone who loves espionage and betrayal, faith and hope, and best of all, God's ability to accomplish anything. This is a must read.

5.0 out of 5 stars New, but great, June 12 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: To Know Her By Name #1 (Paperback)
This was new for Lori Wick. I had already read quite a few books by Lori Wick, but this book suprised me. Not that it was a bad book, it was a great book. It was just that Lori Wick, as I had thought, was a pretty easy-going writer. Nothing extreme. Her books didn't have much action. Not that, that is a bad thing, but this was the first book that actully had a villian. Well, a mean villian. I thought it was cool that Pup was a spy. And it pretty much had everything I wanted in a book. I thought it was so interesting and fascinating I read it in abou 6 hours.(:

4.0 out of 5 stars Original Lead Female Character, Oct. 15 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: To Know Her By Name #1 (Paperback)
This book is very enjoyable to read. The lead female character breaks all stereotypes and still finds love! It has intriguing plots of espionage, varied characters, imaginable places and plot twists to keep it from being an average historical romance novel. I only gave it 4 stars because in spite of attempts to appear otherwise, the romance falls too much into place, without the sophisticated development the rest of the plot goes through.
