To Write a Wrong

 To Write a Wrong


Jen Turano


I have yet to read a book by Jen Turano that I didn't love, and the latest release of The Bleecker Street Inquiry Agency series, To Write a Wrong, did not disappoint. The Bleecker Street Inquiry Agency was formed by four women who live in a boarding house in order to help a dear friend who was accused of theft. Of course, in the 1880's women were not considered smart enough to do such a thing, so there is immediately a conflict that has to be resolved. These women are definitely up for the challenge.

The third book focuses on Daphne, a very successful mystery writer who has to use a male nom de plume to be accepted by the publishing industry. Unfortunately Daphne has a knack for getting into strange and hilarious situations as she is called upon to solve mysterious murder attempts on a fellow writer, who of course has no idea what she really does for a living. 

Jen Turano has the most amazing ability to create loveable characters and unusual circumstances that are delightful to read. It's no wonder that she's been named "One of the funniest voices in the Inspirational genre" by Booklist. Her mastery of conversation is amazing, and she always keeps me guessing. I highly recommend any of her books, and hope you enjoy them as much as I do. Plus, look at that cover -- it's incredible!

ABOUT THE BOOK (from the back cover)

Miss Daphne Beekman is a mystery writer by day, inquiry agent by night. Known for her ability to puzzle out plots, she prefers working behind the scenes for the Bleecker Street Inquiry Agency, staying well away from danger. However, Daphne soon finds herself in the thick of an attempted murder case she's determined to solve.

Mr. Herman Henderson is also a mystery writer, but unlike the dashing heroes he pens, he lives a quiet life, determined to avoid the fate of his adventurous parents, who perished on an expedition when he was a child. But when he experiences numerous attempts on his life, he seeks out the service of the eccentric Bleecker Street Inquiry Agency to uncover the culprit. All too soon, Herman finds himself stepping out of the safe haven of his world and into an adventure he never imagined.

As the list of suspects grows and sinister plots are directed Daphne's way as well, Herman and Daphne must determine who they can trust and if they can risk the greatest adventure of all: love.
