Book Review: To Write A Wrong

About the Book:

Miss Daphne Beekman is a mystery writer by day, inquiry agent by night. Known for her ability to puzzle out plots, she prefers working behind the scenes for the Bleecker Street Inquiry Agency, staying well away from danger. However, Daphne soon finds herself in the thick of an attempted murder case she’s determined to solve.

Mr. Herman Henderson is also a mystery writer, but unlike the dashing heroes he pens, he lives a quiet life, determined to avoid the fate of his adventurous parents, who perished on an expedition when he was a child. But when he experiences numerous attempts on his life, he seeks out the services of the eccentric Bleecker Street Inquiry Agency to uncover the culprit. All too soon, Herman finds himself stepping out of the safe haven of his world and into an adventure he never imagined.

As the list of suspects grows and sinister plots are directed Daphne’s way as well, Herman and Daphne must determine who they can trust and if they can risk the greatest adventure of all: love.

My Thoughts:

Jen Turano writes implausibly delightful comedic romances. In this novel, an element of mystery is thrown in as well, with twists and turns to keep you on the edge of your seat and reading far too late into the night.

Like the previous book in this series, To Write A Wrong, started off at a very fast pace which actually made it hard for me to engage at first. It is quite a different type of writing than I usually read, but once I settled in to the rapid fire events of the book I found it very difficult to put down.

With some genuinely laugh out loud moments, Herman and Daphne drew me into their adventure and kept me turning the pages. Though there is a murder plot, the story is so light and filled with comedy that the book avoids feeling heavy and remains delightfully entertaining throughout.

I continue to be a fan of Turano’s stories and will be on the lookout for the next book in the series.

I received a free digital galley of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
