I was once again very kindly given a finished copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!
Kitty Hawk and The Hunt For Hemingway’s Ghost is the second installment in Iain Reading’s Kitty Hawk Flying Detective Agency series, I actually enjoyed this book even more than the first book seeing Kitty go on her own adventures and getting into some unknown trouble when she probably shouldn’t but oh well! I’m incredibly excited to begin the third book Kitty Hawk and The Icelandic Intrigue which is waiting for me!
In this book, Kitty begins her voyage across the world by beginning in Florida, more specifically we mainly spend our time reading about Kitty’s adventure at Fort Jefferson, however she discovers a boat which looks exactly like Ernest Hemingway’s boat The Pilar so therefore Kitty’s mind jumps to conclusions that she’s actually seeing Ernest Hemingway’s ghost, that is until she really finds out what is going on with the boat and what the owners of the boat are actually doing in the middle of the night.
It’s an incredibly enjoyable read and it’s a nice change from my usual fantasy or sci-fi reads and I can enjoy a nice adventure book by traveling the world alongside Kitty! Again like the first book, this book also has short and sweet chapters which I actually enjoy as it makes it much easier to stop if I need to, I hate leaving a chapter unfinished because I have things to do and the chapter has another 10-20 pages left! I highly recommend this series so far it seems to be getting better and better, if you haven’t read the first book, I suggest you go check that out, I have written a review for the first book also you can find that here.
