Kitty Hawk and the Tragedy of the R.M.S Titanic by Iain Reading | REVIEW

The Blurb:

Kitty Hawk and the Tragedy of the RMS Titanic is the thrillingly cryptic fourth installment of the exciting Kitty Hawk Flying Detective Agency Series featuring the intrepid teenage seaplane pilot Kitty Hawk and her various adventures of mystery and intrigue as she follows in the footsteps of Amelia Earhart on an epic flight around the world. This fourth book in the series brings Kitty to the emerald hills of Ireland where she meets a handsome stranger and is quickly swept up in a perplexing hundred-year-old family treasure hunt involving secret codes and puzzling clues that lead her on a fast-paced adventure that carries her from Dublin to London – from the decks of the ill-fated ocean liner Titanic to the temples of ancient Egypt and the streets of Jack the Ripper – until she finally unlocks the mystery and discovers the long-hidden treasure. Much like the earlier books in this series, Kitty Hawk and the Tragedy of the RMS Titanic is a perfect book to fire the imaginations of armchair detectives of all ages. Filled with fascinating and highly Google-able locations and history the reader will find themselves immersed in brand new worlds that are brought to life before their very eyes as Kitty Hawk experiences the stories and history of a doomed ocean liner and unravels the Tragedy of the RMS Titanic.

My Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Thank you to Kelsey and Iain Reading for sending me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!

Well Iain, you were right about book number four! I devoured it and read it within a day.

This story is the forth instalment in the Kitty Hawk Flying Detective Agency, we’ve followed Kitty on her a thrilling journey around the world, getting caught up in numerious adventures in each country she’s in! We started off our adventure in Alaska going to Florida Keys and Fort Jefferson, Iceland and now we’re in Ireland and London!

I think I loved this much more than the previous two books just because it was based in England and Ireland. For this story, Kitty meets Andrew, a boy whose family has a hundred year old treasure hunt which involved codes and secret messages that they just cannot solve! I adored the fact that Kitty had met Andrew and that they had a small romance, I’m also glad that this book isn’t based around romance at all and that there is the perfect small amount in it.

I adored that this story revolved around the Titanic and it’s history and also throwing in some Jack the Ripper AND Sherlock Holmes! This is by far my most favourite book in this series and I’ve got the next book on my TBR right now to read ASAP, in which we are following Kitty on her travels to Rome!

The Kitty Hawk series are a collection of five books which are YA Mystery Adventure and I highly recommend them. I do have the previous three books reviewed and I will link them below if you wish to check them out!
