About the Book

to-write-a-wrong-book

Miss Daphne Beekman is a mystery writer by day, inquiry agent by night. Known for her ability to puzzle out plots, she prefers working behind the scenes for the Bleecker Street Inquiry Agency, staying well away from danger. However, Daphne soon finds herself in the thick of an attempted murder case she’s determined to solve.

Mr. Herman Henderson is also a mystery writer, but unlike the dashing heroes he pens, he lives a quiet life, determined to avoid the fate of his adventurous parents, who perished on an expedition when he was a child. But when he experiences numerous attempts on his life, he seeks out the services of the eccentric Bleecker Street Inquiry Agency to uncover the culprit. All too soon, Herman finds himself stepping out of the safe haven of his world and into an adventure he never imagined.

As the list of suspects grows and sinister plots are directed Daphne’s way as well, Herman and Daphne must determine who they can trust and if they can risk the greatest adventure of all: love.

I just have to say, I love Jen Turano’s books. Her mastery and aptitude with words, her knack for combining lots of laughter with intrigue and her skill for seamlessly interconnecting faith and the characters’ lives is a true gift. I try to always be on a list for her newest books.

Daphne Beekman, an inquiry agent and mystery writer, tries to stay out of the spotlight.  One evening when she goes by the office after hours, Daphne is startled when Herman Henderson, fellow mystery writer, shows up.

Dressed as a pirate, Daphne had planned to run by the office, which was only a few blocks from her home. Daphne hoped to garner ideas for her pirate tale. Herman wonders if he wants to retain the services of an agency which has a pressed paperboard cutlass-wielding pirate to unravel his problem.

So begins the delightfully, and sometimes harrowingly, adventurous tale of the Bleeker Street Inquiry Agency’s endeavors to solve the attempts on poor Herman Henderson’s life. Daphne’s escapades supply comic relief as well as clues to the mystery.

Several other characters in the story range from kind and genteel to horrific and deranged. The story of the latter’s character and his inexcusable behavior, along with its disclosure, may be difficult for some readers.

To Write a Wrong is part of a series but can be read as a standalone. However, to really enjoy the story, I recommend reading the first book in the series, too. My review of the first book in series, https://captivedreamswindow.wordpress.com/2020/11/27/to-steal-a-heart-by-jen-turano-on-tour-with-celebrate-lit-with-giveaway/.

I received this book from Bethany House through NetGalley. However, my review is voluntary, and all opinions are my own.
