Moneypenny soon finds herself embroiled in a highly-charged adventure infused with the glamour of the Cold War espionage game.

I started reading the Moneypenny diaries because I have read all Bond books (almost all!). The Diaries are very good! Moneypenny's action in Cuba wasn't convincing as her "helping" Bond in Spain (first diary). But the Kim Philby part is good, not excellent. Why go into a complicated Finnish getaway (close to From Russia with Love) if the KGB could just arrest her in Moscow? On the other hand, Philby and Eleanor's life and Moneypenny's stay in Moscow is excellent! But, more important, the way Kate Westbrook keeps some open questions along the Diaries is great: a quest for her father's final destiny and a MI6 mole. Moving from the mid sixties to 2006 is very well managed and interesting. The Diaries are page turners and much better that some of Bond's post-Fleming novels!

Great read

This novel and it's prequel should contain spoiler warnings, because they reveal significant plot details from Ian Fleming's original James Bond novels. If you haven't read Fleming's ON HER MAJESTY'S SECRET SERVICE (or at least seen the film, which is very faithful to the book) I strongly suggest you do so before reading Kate Westbrook's THE MONEYPENNY DIARIES (UK title: THE MONEYPENNY DIARIES: GUARDIAN ANGEL), which picks up immediately from the end of OHMSS.

Then it's essential that you read YOU ONLY LIVE TWICE, and then THE MAN WITH THE GOLDEN GUN (the films of these two titles bear no resemblance at all to Fleming's books) before proceeding to THE MONEYPENNY DIARIES (VOLUME 2): SECRET SERVANT. Because of their overlapping timelines, reading Fleming and Westbrook in the order that I've outlined will give you a much greater understanding of, and appreciation for, the MONEYPENNY DIARIES.

This is the second volume in Kate Westbrook's Moneypenny Trilogy. I highly recommend it, though I would start with volume one. These books tell Moneypenny's life story and expound on the events of On Her Majesty's Secret Service, You Only Live Twice, and Man With the Golden Gun, showing us what was going on with Bond's supporting cast while he was having those adventures. If you like Fleming's Bond, you will really enjoy this.

Never knew there was a story behind the Bond movies number one lady. Great little series - wish there were more. Fast shipping, too. Recommend it for entertaining reading.

Thought it would be more like J> Bond books.
