Genre: Christian Historical Fiction
Series: The Adventures of the Northwood #9
This book was very entertaining, and had just enough ‘scary’ parts to keep me on the edge of my seat, so to speak. It did have a bit of romance, but nothing overly inappropriate (kissing, etc.); mainly just MINOR SPOILER! Kate and Erik SPOILER END! making eyes at each other. The mystery part of it was very well developed (oh my, now I’m sounding like a professional critic!), was very exciting, and it was not easy to predict the outcome. I highly recommend this book!
