I’m trying to burn through these Emily Organ books before my Kindle Unlimited subscription expires in March. I own 1-4, 6, and 7, but have borrowed 5 and 8, so I’m trying to read them quickly before I have to send 8 back. So, expect a lot of reviews in the next few weeks.
I will say this one has been my least favorite, but that doesn’t mean it’s not a good book. The plot just didn’t interest me as much as the others have. In the beginning, an inventor kills himself after just speaking with Penny. Because he seemed so happy and excited about his projects, she is sure he was murdered. There is another murder from earlier in her day that she believes his death is connected to. Of course, she has her two male acquaintances in on the investigation with her. Mr. Edwards at the library helps her research the backgrounds and inventions in question. Mr. Blakely of Scotland Yard helps her uncover the author of some mysterious letters Penny’s friends and relatives have been receiving.
The death of the inventor just didn’t grab my attention this time around. I still love Penny’s character and her very awkward conversations with both Mr. Edwards and Mr. Blakely. I fully intend to read the rest of the series and look forward to seeing how the overall series plots are resolved.
