Reading and writing are two of my favorite things to do. I love sharing my personal experience and my thoughts so others can compare the way they think. Therefore, I love to review books. Young Adult fiction. Chick-lit. Contemporary. New Adult fiction. Any recommendation taken.

It shortly fell through, as anyone could guess, and she ended up buying a ticket on a giant ship. There is no way this girl would let her parents win. She has been denied adventure all of her life. Now, the reigns are in her hands.


When she ports, she goes to a bar and a man approaches her, asking her all about her travels, like he was on the ship riding next to her the entire time. Instead, she asks and he informs her that he is some type of investigator. When he leaves the bar, she asks around who the man was.  They all tell her that he's R.F Jackaby. And that he swears by mermaids.


She starts looking for a job and everyone tells her to go to the Post Office. There, she finds another flier…….




So, she takes a ticket and goes to the address.


It's Jackaby.


From here on out it's crazy werewolves and cute detectives. Friendly ghosts and human ducks.  And a law system that is slowly falling apart……..from the top down


If you can appreciate an unexpected turn of events all of a sudden, you will be in for a treat. This book will deliver.
