Book Description:

Kitty Hawk and the Hunt for Hemingway's Ghost is the exciting second installment in a new series of adventure mystery stories that are one part travel, one part history and five parts adventure. This second book in the series continues the adventures of Kitty Hawk, an intrepid teenage pilot who has decided to follow in the footsteps of her hero Amelia Earhart and make an epic flight around the entire world. After flying across North America Kitty's journey takes her down south to Florida where she plans to get a bit of rest and relaxation before continuing on with the rest of her long and grueling flight. As Kitty explores the strange and magical water world of the Florida Keys her knack for getting herself into precarious situations sweeps her headlong into the adventure of a lifetime involving mysterious lights, ancient shipwrecks, razor-toothed barracudas and even a sighting of the great Ernest Hemingway himself. This exhilarating story will have armchair explorers and amateur detectives alike anxiously following every twist and turn as they are swept across the landscape and history of the Florida Keys all the way from Key West to the strange and remarkable world of Fort Jefferson and the Dry Tortugas.

Kitty Hawk and the Hunt for Hemingway's Ghost is a perfect book to fire the imaginations of readers of all ages. Filled with fascinating and highly Google-able locations and history this book will inspire anyone to learn about and experience as much of our amazing world as they can - just like Kitty Hawk herself.

“In the Kitty Hawk Flying Detective Agency Series the heroine finds herself in a new geographic location in each book. The series will eventually have a total of 13 books in it (maybe more) and her flight around the world will be completed in the end,” says Iain. “The books are sequential but one could definitely read any of the later ones before reading the earlier ones.”

My Review:

Kitty Hawk and the Hunt for Hemingway's Ghost is the second book in the Kitty Hawk Flying Detective Agency Series. There's a big mystery dealing with sunken treasure and a smaller one dealing with Hemingway's ghost. Kitty ends up solving both. If you enjoy reading the National Geographic magazine, then you'll probably enjoy this series. These books are rich in describing interesting places and historical facts along with some suspense and adventure.

I found the second book to be slower going than the first. I was annoyed with Kitty when she told Jack that she had no idea what he was talking about when he was in the middle of explaining important things that should have been pinging in her brain. I also lived inside her head with her thoughts far too much. The exciting parts were in the prologue and the climax of the story. When I got to the climax, my heart nearly stopped! Ironically, I found the epilogue too short. Kitty doesn't tell Charlie about her adventure in Florida and only mentions briefly that she's on her way to exploring "this big old world of ours."
