To Write A Wrong By Jen Turano

To Write a Wrong
by Jen Turano
Publisher: Bethany House
Series: The Bleecker Street Inquiry Agency
ISBN: 9780764235320

If you like hysterical historical fiction, look no further than a Jen Turano book! This series has been fantastic! I read book one, To Steal a Heart, last year and fell in love with the characters, which is no surprise since it's a Jen Turano story! I'm on her launch team for To Write a Wrong and was sent the book for review.

Summary:

Miss Daphne Beekman is a mystery writer by day, inquiry agent by night. Known for her ability to puzzle out plots, she prefers working behind the scenes for the Bleecker Street Inquiry Agency, staying well away from danger. However, Daphne soon finds herself in the thick of an attempted murder case she's determined to solve.

Mr. Herman Henderson is also a mystery writer, but unlike the dashing heroes he pens, he lives a quiet life, determined to avoid the fate of his adventurous parents, who perished on an expedition when he was a child. But when he experiences numerous attempts on his life, he seeks out the services of the eccentric Bleecker Street Inquiry Agency to uncover the culprit. All too soon, Herman finds himself stepping out of the safe haven of his world and into an adventure he never imagined.

As the list of suspects grows and sinister plots are directed Daphne's way as well, Herman and Daphne must determine who they can trust and if they can risk the greatest adventure of all: love.

My Review:

To put it simply, I loved To Write a WrongOh my gosh, I've been looking forward to Daphne's story since the moment I closed the book on book one!

As always, the author's story had me in stitches. Her characters always get into the kookiest situations. She knows how to write a scene that comes to life in the most hysterical way! This is a book that's longer than anything I ever read in a day, but I loved it so much I "HAD" to finish it.

When I was reading the story, I kept thinking that this book is like a comedic version of the game Clue. As much as Daphne wants to do a good job as an inquiry agent, she's SO bad at it, you can't help but cringe when she's "on the job". And then there's poor Herman who needs to be protected from someone who's trying to murder him, yet his new agent is Daphne. hahaha I kept thinking I knew who was going to be the bad guy, but Daphne was no help considering the fact that she suspected everyone with her unique way of seeing the world. A way in which Herman comes to truly appreciate it. I mean, I think everyone who reads the story will!

One of the parts of the story that I love is the outfits Daphne wears. They basically become a character of their own throughout the story. Reminiscent of Gertrude in Out of the Ordinary.

I was pleasantly surprised that we were able to get to know Ann, from book one, more in this story. It was fun to see her sensible side next to Daphne's wacky side. I also enjoyed Eunice in this story as I did in the first book. She has quite the presence, especially when she pulls out her pistol! hahahaha I can't wait for her story!

I was actually surprised at the serious turn the story took towards the end of the book, but I appreciated it so much. A VERY strong message to young girls, women, and their families. I won't give it away, but it's a societal issue that is incredibly important! I honestly loved the direction it took and how the author handled it.
