"Miss Fortune" by Sara Mills

 About this book:

  “They call her the “P.I. Princess.”
   It’s 1947 and Allie Fortune is the only female (and probably the best) private investigator in New York City. Her work is a welcome distraction from her own past, and she’s just been hired on by a client who isn’t telling the whole truth. Mary Gordon’s claims of innocence don’t fit with her ransacked apartment, being shot at, and the two Soviet agents hot on her trail.
  Meanwhile, the FBI is working the case because a legendary and mysterious treasure has gone missing...again. The only catch for Allie is her new “partner” Jack, an attractive, single agent who knows how to make her smile. As Allie and Jack chase after the gold, they must contend with the Soviets, who also want the priceless treasure back--after all, they stole it fair and square.”

My personal Rating-
Okay. I’m impressed.
Recently, I’ve been watching quite a few Hallmark Movies & Mysteries movies, so I’ve definitely been in a mood for mysteries. “Miss Fortune” was much better than all those movies, hahaha! Very well written. This was a very well done novel, and was written in such the great style of the ‘40s and the font made it even better. With that cliffhanger, needless to say, I can’t wait to get my hands on book two!   

See y’all on Monday with the start of Pre-Teen Week!

*BFCG may (Read the review to see) recommend this book by this author. It does not mean I recommend all the books by this author.
