Book Review: Kitty Hawk and the Hunt for Hemingway's Ghost by Iain Reading

“Kitty Hawk and the Hunt for Hemingway’s Ghost” by Iain Reading is the second installment in the “Kitty Hawk Flying Detective Agency Series.” In case you didn’t read the first book or read my review of the first book. Kitty hawk is a clever and very skilled young woman that is traveling around the world following Amelia Earhart’s path. Kitty’s goal is to go on an adventure of a lifetime.

Kitty Hawk decides to take a break and spend some time in the Florida Keys for some much needed rest and relaxation. After a short vacation with her parents, Kitty decides to stay for an extra three days to explore. Her new adventure starts with Ernest Hemingway’s house were Kitty believes she sees his ghost.

This series is fun and easy to read. It brings adventure to the reader. The short chapters were nice because it was easy to find stopping periods. I love the bits and pieces of history that are incorporated into the story. I think the story is well written and I think it is much better than the first story. There were a couple things that I didn’t like though. Kitty steals and breaks into Fort Jefferson and doesn’t get caught. Honestly it doesn’t even seem like she is in much danger. I really don’t think stealing and breaking and entering should be okay in the story. This is supposed to be for young adults and kids. That is the issue that I have. Other than that I think it is a great story.
