Happy Paperback Publication Day, Misha 🙂
Having thoroughly enjoyed City Of Secrets (Adventures of Letty Parker Book 1) I was very keen to read Bridge Of Lies and I think this book is even better than the first. I think the fact that some of the characters were already familiar to me this time helps, but it is so beautifully written with some beautifully descriptive language it’s hard not to get swept up in Letty’s world and escape from ours for a while.
Although aimed at readers aged eight and above, I know it will be enjoyed by children and adults alike. I think it would sound great read aloud and enjoyed by the whole family.
Letty is such a brilliant character. Feisty and independent, but completely loveable amongst an array of other unique and intriguing characters with their own parts to play in this fast-paced adventure story.
This book sees Letty and friends setting up the Letty Parker & Associates Detective Agency and their first ever case sees them dealing with far more than they bargained for. I was certainly on the edge of my seat when it seems like time is running out and fast!
These books would make a great TV series or film in my opinion.
I hope there is going to be a book 3.
Many thanks to Misha Herwin for my review copy.
Letty Parker & Associates Detective Agency is finally in business. But before they can take on their first case, Isambard Kingdom Brunel’s famous suspension bridge is blown up. Letty decides to investigate but getting hired is not as easy as she thought, especially when the Dark Ones have their own plans for her. Then there is Ma Pountney and her witches, plus the Bear and his gang of villains. Each determined to stand in Letty’s way. Nothing goes right from the very start and one by one Letty’s friends desert her.
Even in a city, crowded with folk arriving for the Balloon Festival, Letty finds herself alone – and in the greatest of danger.
Bridge of Lies is the next book in the Adventures of Letty Parker. Following on from City of Secrets, it is a magical fantasy adventure for 8-12 year olds set in an alternative world.
