Book Review - The Black Crow Conspiracy by Christopher Edge
About the Book
Penelope Tredwell, the pen behind bestselling author, Montgomery Flinch, is cursed with writer's block. She needs a sensational new story or her magazine, the Penny Dreadful, will go under. So when a mysterious letter arrives, confessing to the impossible crime of stealing the Crown Jewels just days before the King's coronation, Penelope thinks she has found a plot to enthrall her readers, until the police charge Montgomery Flinch with the theft of the jewels. Can Penelope solve the mystery, restore the jewels, rescue Monty, save the magazine, and keep the true identity of Montgomery Flinch a secret?
My Take on the Book
I love history and I have been trying to get my daughters to fall in love with this too and with stories like this, they will definitely be drawn into the world. I loved that connections to my daughters and the characters are wonderfully created and expressed throughout the book. My eldest daughter is a HUGE mystery fan and this book, while a little longer than most that she would read, held her in wrapped attention from night to night. We actually had difficulty with her going to sleep when she was supposed to.
I am glad that this is a series, as the author has created characters that I know that I and my daughter really want to see again!
