My Review:

Winnifred loves to read crime novels. Her father is an inspector with the Chicago police. The book starts out when she thinks she sees a kidnapping and sets out to find the kidnapper. Her father has detective Jude Thorpe be her bodyguard. He has reasons of his own to help solve the crime.

I loved all the comparisons to the novels she was reading. This is a very well written book. I found very interesting from start to finish. I look forward to reading more books from the author.

I received a complimentary copy of the book from the publisher through Celebrate Lit. I was not required to write a positive review. This is my own opinion.
