4 out of 5 stars
Huge thank you to Iain Reading for sending me a copy of this book!
This is by far the best in the whole series, and I’m so glad that I got to read it! I loved this one because of the different elements to the story.
I loved that this was set in London. I loved that it talked about the Titanic and Sherlock Holmes. I love that there was a plot point about Jack the Ripper. I think this was the best crafted novel in this series so far, and definitely recommend reading it!
Kitty Hawk decides to help out a boy named Andrew who she gets introduced to during a grand opening for a restaurant. Andrew comes up to her and asks her for her help in discovering the truth of what happened to a crew member on the Titanic. Hijinks ensue, and the mystery gets solved.
I think that this was a well written book, and the plot developed quite nicely. I really enjoyed that there were many different adventures that Kitty got to go on, and I like that she was such a central part of this story.
If you haven’t read this series, I highly recommend it. I have been really enjoying it, and I think anyone from middle grade up would get enjoyment from it. I loved Andrew as a character because he just sounded so cute. I loved the scene right after they figured out the most important part of the clue. So cute.
Again, huge thanks to Iain Reading for sending me this book to review! I can’t wait to finish the series :)
