    1. by Andrea Renee CoxReading this book was like inhaling a warm cup of cocoa on a cold winter's evening. It swiftly soared to the top spot on my favorites list. Thoroughly researched and exquisitely written, this book was filled with mystery, suspense, a dash of romance, and intriguing history. I particularly enjoyed the heavy emphasis on code-breaking during WWI (prior to America joining the Great War). Very interesting stuff. Susan Page Davis remains one of my favorite authors, as her stories co [...]


    2. I have read lots of books concerning WWII, but not nearly as many about WWI. Consequently I was fascinated by "The Crimson Cipher" which deals with sabotage and espionage in America before it entered WWI. I loved the characters that were dealing with murder, mystery and so much more as they tried to uncover danger before it happened. Emma is a strong young woman that is devastated when her father is killed over what seems to be the project he was working on designing - a machine that can encrypt [...]


    3. I liked this book. Although it was an espionage book, it's also an inspirational that reminded me of Grace Livingston Hill.Emma Shuster works with her father in the area of cryptology, which is decoding coded messages. Her father was working on a machine that could encrypt messages for the military. The really interesting concept is that this is set in the U.S. during WWI. The U.S. is not in the war but are aiding the Allies. Germany wanted to keep the U.S. and Canada from aiding Britain, so the [...]



    4. I can't say that this book is one of the best I've ever read, but the story is interesting, and unique in shedding light on a time in U.S. history that few are aware of, a time when German spies were in the U.S. and Canada sabotaging munitions factories to stop America from resupplying English troups in WW1. And when German U-Boots sank our ships delivering goods to England.The story takes place in 1915, before the U.S. entered WW1. The initial setting is the college town of Brunswick, Maine, bu [...]


    5. Emma Shuster’s peaceful, academic world is rocked when she discovers her father, a professor and researcher, has been brutally murdered. His death leaves his most important work unfinished – a new machine designed for the secure encryption of sensitive information. With war raging in Europe, and the United States government skirting a delicate balance of maintaining neutrality while protecting political and economic interests, the need for new methods of encryption and deciphering codes has [...]


    6. About the book: A female Navy cryptographer seeks to save livesd uncover her father's killers.In 1915, German sympathizers escalated acts of sabotage in the United States to keep the nation from joining in the war. Following the mysterious murder of Emma Shuster's father, Lt. John Patterson invites Emma to become a Navy cryptographer because of the expertise she gained in helping her father develop a cipher system. Emma finds new strength in her faith as she strives to outwit her adversary, know [...]

    8. The Crimson Cipher by Susan Page Davis is a fast-paced and intriguing look at the world of code-breaking in the days leading up to WWI. When Emma Shuster's father is found shot dead in his office, she assumes that he was murdered for information about the new ciphering machine he was creating for a bank. Navy lieutenant John Patterson arrived to talk to Professor Shuster but ends up helping Emma deal with funeral preparations and plans for the future in the wake of her father's death. The couple [...]


    9. I love a good espionage novel, and this story about a code breaker is an absolute delight. Although I had been introduced to the writing of author Susan Page Davis in another historical series that was not quite my cup of tea for the portion I read, I enjoyed this book so much that I will have to give that series another chance. The Crimson Cipher has mystery that keeps you on edge and romance that makes you just melt. The verbiage was great and made me really feel like I was there in the time b [...]


    10. Another good book By Susan Page Davis. This book is set during WW1 but before the USA commit to the war. I found it interesting and informative as I knew the US didn't join in the war very early but didn't know of alot of the reasons. I also didn't know about the domestic issues in Canada also. This book starts with the murder of Emma's father and what happens after. Lt. John Patterson invites Emma to become a Navy cryptographer due to her expertised gained from helping her father develop a ciph [...]


    11. I alway enjoy reading mystery books that are written in the 1900's (Miss fortune by Sara Mills), so it was no surprise that I loved this book. 'The Crimson Cipher' did not disappoint me at all. It had romance, mystery and suspense throughout and was just all-around a great book. I definitely would recommend 'The Crimson Cipher' if you like mystery and romance together. I loved the code breaking part of this book also, it made me think of how it might be in real life. I hope that there will be a [...]


    12. Engrossing and sweetThis story, set just prior to America's entry into WW1, got me hooked right off the bat. With a strong heroine and a dashing hero and a fascinating storyline. I'm not at all a cipher solver, but the conversations about the ciphers were very interesting. It was also nice to read a book with more than one strong female. And they were all nice to each other. Snark gets a bit tiresome after a while. I don't know if this is part of a series, but if it is, I'm gonna get them.


    13. The historical events surrounding this story were amazing. And the story line was interesting, but the conversation, chapter flow and personal emotion were weak enough that I felt very detached. But certainly worth the read!


    14. Charming story and a nice summer read. Reading this made me realize how little I know about WWI. The love story wasn't overwhelming and the violence wasn't overpowering, a good balance between the two


    15. 4.5 starsGood writingd fascinating facts on the history of code-breaking. The heroine's father is murdered because of a code breaking machine he built, and the hero is detailed to protect her as she works to break the code and find out why her father was killed.


    16. This was a really good and clean read. I loved that it was so intriguing and that the romance wasn't overdone, but rather, in a word, Gentle. The only reason I didn't rate it 5 stars is that at times it seemed a bit slow. So maybe my official rating is 4.5Very good book. I definitely recommend.


    17. The plot was good, the characters were good, I liked the suspense element (particularly the codebreaking), but I did feel that the development of the romantic relationship between the hero and the heroine was lacking the spark I found in Frasier Island and Inside Story.



    18. I wish I could give this book 6 stars!! Gripping plot, well developed characters and Christian values embedded naturally without being preachy or righteous. Fantastic!!


    19. Intriguing,insightful look at WWI code writers and breakers. Loved it, but the ending seemed out of sync with the rest of the book.


    20. Another thiller from this author! The action gets going right from the start, and you're kept guessing right to the end.





    21. Slow-paced and slightly boring. One plus about the book was the characters' language. It had an authenticity about it that made you feel like you were really in the WW2 time era.
