This is such a fun read. Kathleen Kaska continues her delightful series.
Another great mystery by Kathleen Kaska. Full of suspense, yet kept me laughing throughout. Syndey and Ruth, in spite of their contrasting personalities, make a hilariously fine team of detectives.
This is the second book in the Sydney Lockhart series and they just keep getting better. I love the character and her sidekick, Ruth. The book is full of mystery, suspence and humor. You can't get better than that! The historic details really add to the story. Once I started reading, I just couldn't put it down. Bring on the next book! I can't wait to see what predicament Syndey gets herself into next.
