K is for … Katherines are the best!

A friend recommended I try Kitty Peck and the Music Hall Mysteries for my “K” book. And now I’m going to recommend you try them, too, because they are excellent. YA, crime and history all rolled into one.

Kitty made for an excellent protagonist, resourceful, smart and loyal. There were lots of twists and I kept swinging one way and another about who had “dunnit”. I got it wrong – but I usually do!

And because I’d bought the two-book boxset (simple economics, that: each book was £1.49 versus two for .98) I moved straight on to Kitty Peck and The Child of Ill-Fortune. That required more suspension of disbelief since I didn’t find Kitty convincing as the heir to a criminal empire to begin with, but – oh my – that ending!

I know I’m biased because I’m a Katy, but this Katherine is definitely a cut above the rest!

I’ve got another name for my “L” book – check back next week to see how I get on with a YA addition to the Pride & Prejudice universe, Lydia: The Wild Child of Pride & Prejudice.

  1. I thought as soon as I started reading that this one might suit you. Not read the second, but have read other books by Kate Griffin
