Kitty Hawk and the Hunt for Hemingway's Ghost (Kitty Hawk Flying Detective Agency, #2)Welcome back to Kitty Hawk’s world, and I do mean world as this young aviatrix sets down in the Florida Keys, home to the great Ernest Hemingway, and quite possibly his ghost! But what would Kitty’s adventure be if she lazily swam, sunbathed and haunted the places of dead authors?

Mysterious lights, nefarious divers, sunken ships and where do we find Kitty? Right in the middle of a new mystery on the high seas. Something is fishy in Florida and Kitty has made it her mission to find out what is buried beneath the waves, who wants it and why. Follow her sometimes reckless, but always daring journey as she once again, beats the odds and the bad guys.

Iain Reading knows how to bring adventure to life while feeding his readers real facts about real people, places and things. Kitty Hawk and the Hunt for Hemingway's Ghost is the perfect kindling to light a younger reader’s imagination and dreams of unending adventures. Even the not-so-young can enjoy the sight-seeing trip we go on, in a manner far less sedate than following a well-rehearsed guide. Feel the adventure, smell the ocean air, swim with the fish and fly high with Kitty, all from the safety of your own reading area! The gift of reading is always the perfect gift, when a little education and excitement is thrown in, it is always a bonus!

Iain Reading knows how to draw each scene with just the right flare for reality mixed with over-the-top mystery and entertainment. Fast-moving, with a bit of humor, a bit of danger, and one young lady that is living life to the fullest.

I received this copy from Iain Reading in exchange for my honest review.
