BOOK REVIEW- The Traitor's Club: Ford by Laura Landon
Captain Fordham Remington has survived countless dangerous missions fighting the foreign enemies of the Queen while maintaining his cover as a traitor to the Crown. Now he undertakes the far less threatening assignment of finding out who is stealing from Her Majesty’s shipping company, and nearly gets himself killed.
Lady Calinda Barclave has worked alongside her grandfather, Admiral Barclave, to run Her Majesty’s Crown Shipping Company for four years. When she’s unable to discover who is behind the company’s shortage in profits, she turns to the dashing Captain Remington for help. But when she discovers his betrayal, she realizes she’s lost the shipping company she loves. And her heart along with it.

I liked this story. It was an enjoyable, quick read even though at times it was also somewhat predictable.
I liked both Calinda/Callie and Fordham/Ford, they both were hard-working, intelligent, honorable people. Callie was in an unusual position for a woman of her time but she loves what she does and she's good at it. She pretty much enjoys everything about the shipping business and she loves her grandfather and wants to help him as much as she can. She is also a woman who had trusted in a charming, handsome captain before only to find that he was not an honorable man. So when Ford shows up, she is once again is faced with a charming, handsome captain. She fights the attraction, not wanting to open her heart to him but she finds herself trusting him and sharing some of her concerns about the shipping company.
Ford is torn almost from the first moment of meeting Callie. He doesn't want to hurt her or her grandfather, whom he admires. He's on a mission though and he's not quite sure how this is going to work out.
There is plenty of trying to figure out the who, what and how things are going on. It goes from thinking something is amiss to knowing it. More than one person is SURE thievery is going on. But how to prove it? That is the question that gets answered as well as the "who" behind it all.
There is a romance that develops in the story but it starts with admiration and friendship and goes from there. It is a clean story though, in case people wondered.
There are also good secondary people and they added to the story.
I received a copy of this book via Netgalley and this is my honest opinion of it.
