Beastly Bones: A Jackaby Novel - William Ritter

 

 

 

 

Back to New Fiddleham, New England with Abigail Rook and her eccentric employer, R.F. Jackaby, supernatural investigator. From shape shifters disguised as kitten-fish to a dig for dinosaurs and a great of suspicious deaths, this book has a lot going on. But, in the end, it all ties together.

 

I like Abigail, she is smart and strong and also a bit unsure of herself. Jackaby is a bit crazy, but still a good-hearted person. I listened to the audio of this book and enjoyed the narrator's voice. I noticed things about the writing that didn't stand out as much when I read the first book. Abigail speaks in alliteration often... very often. It is sort of funny, for instance, at one point she talks about another character having a "propensity for peddling pilfered goods." Once I noticed this, it made me smile every time she did it.

 

This is a fun series, and I will probably read the next one... eventually. :)
