If you like Nancy Drew, you should check out Kitty Hawk

Kitty Hawk And The Curse Of The Yukon Gold (Kitty Hawk Flying Detective Agency, #1) - Iain Reading

As an avid Nancy Drew reader growing up, I couldn't help but snatch up a copy of this series and I was not disappointed. Kitty Hawk is a fun, adventuresome teenager with a specific set of skills (flying) and a curiosity that sometimes gets the best of her.

 

Kitty's character was interesting and heart felt. The inner dialogue that is included in the story was a little frustrating at first but by the end of the book it was a nice picture into her current mood. After all, who doesn't argue with themselves when they get into a tight spot?

 

What I enjoyed most about this story was the in depth details of the history of the Klondike Gold Rush and how Kitty was learning about the history of the area as she was going through her adventures. The landscape, the tools, the trials and tribulations of the people who came for the gold rush were so well written you felt like you were there for it. Education and adventure? A great combination in this story.

 

If you enjoy a good mystery/adventure then I recommend this series. There are twists and turns that keep the story moving and you won't want to put it down!
