Someone hit me because I don’t know why I waited so long to read this book. I had a feeling I would like it but I didn’t realize HOW much I would like it. Pretty much the first paragraph I was completely hooked. I was often reminded while reading this book of another book/series that I love, Lockwood & Company. This had that same vibe and I loved it. I plan to read the next one soon.
Abigail Rook is looking for adventure, set in New Fiddleham, New England, 1892 she meets the oddly intriguing R.F. Jackaby. It wasn’t a meeting of chance she saw a sign on a board for an investigator looking for an assistant but Jackaby is a little…different when it comes to investigating and he isn’t sure that Abigail will work. Abigail is able to hold her own and she is given the job and takes a room in his manor that has a few friends. Abigail and Jackaby are in search of a serial killer can they find him before he finds them?
I loved this story, I loved the characters, I just loved everything about it. I don’t think I was expecting the paranormal type twist but I really thought it was done very well. Yes, I am aware of the synopsis stating supernatural but they way it is done in the book, I wasn’t expecting that.
I really liked Abigail and thought she was a great MC for this book. She was strong headed and independent and I enjoyed her interactions with Jackaby. Jackaby was a little strange but I enjoyed his quarks and strange ways of doing things, I suggest not asking him to make you breakfast. This book had lots of twists and a bunch of humor that I really enjoyed.
I cannot recommend this book enough. I really wish I didn’t wait so long to read it but I am totally looking forward to reading the next one. This book is really great for all ages, a wonderful story with really great characters.This book is really great for all ages, a wonderful story with really great characters. Click To Tweet
