Kitty Hawk and the Hunt for Hemingway’s Ghost (Kitty Hawk Flying Detective Agency – 2) by Iain Reading

5 stars

(Excerpt from Goodreads) Kitty Hawk and the Hunt for Hemingway’s Ghost is the exciting second installment in a new series of adventure mystery stories that are one part travel, one part history and five parts adventure. This second book in the series continues the adventures of Kitty Hawk, an intrepid teenage pilot who has decided to follow in the footsteps of her hero Amelia Earhart and make an epic flight around the entire world. After flying across North America Kitty’s journey takes her down south to Florida where she plans to get a bit of rest and relaxation before continuing on with the rest of her long and grueling flight. As Kitty explores the strange and magical water world of the Florida Keys her knack for getting herself into precarious situations sweeps her headlong into the adventure of a lifetime involving mysterious lights, ancient shipwrecks, razor-toothed barracudas and even a sighting of the great Ernest Hemingway himself. This exhilarating story will have armchair explorers and amateur detectives alike anxiously following every twist and turn as they are swept across the landscape and history of the Florida Keys all the way from Key West to the strange and remarkable world of Fort Jefferson and the Dry Tortugas.

Kitty is going to continue on her around the world flight, just like Amelia Earhart. But when she gets to the Florida Keys she decides to take a little vacation and recover from her trip. But while there, her curiosity leads her on an adventure full of sunken treasure and Ernest Hemingway. It seems the more she learns the more likely she is going to find herself in trouble.

I love the Kitty Hawk stories. It’s almost like a modern day Nancy Drew. Kitty is so smart and strong that she is a great character for anyone. The writing is so vivid that I could picture myself lying on the beach staring at the stars too. I love all the history that goes into her adventures and the extra reading section at the end of the story for those that are curious about different things in the book.

All I can say is Kitty Hawk and the Hunt for Hemingway’s Ghost is a great story. You will get sucked in and will rush to finish the book just to find out what is going on. These books are great for anyone.

I received this book from the authors publisher in exchange for an honest review.
