Oh, this is fun! Annie and Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show are headed across the ocean to attend Queen Victoria’s Jubilee celebration. It’s not without incident as someone is murdered. That someone is a servant of the queen, and at the same time, Annie’s husband falls.

Annie believes both of these happenings could be related to an assassination attempt on the queen.

There is unrest in London with many groups disloyal to the Queen. Annie becomes an amateur sleuth, with the help of a reporter, Emma,

Such an inspiring and spunky character and a great story put together into one great read. Loved it and highly recommend.

2.5 stars. I appreciate and acknowledge what the author was trying to do with this story, but I guess I just found it rather dull. I wanted there to be more historical fiction with the tuff between Ireland and England, but that was never the case.

I met Karie Bovee at a writing conference. She was an entertaining panelist. I was intrigued by her Annie Oakley series. I bought the first in the series right there at the conference. I devoured it. It was so much fun.

I ordered the second and sadly it was a bit lower in my stack of books. It took me a bit to get to it. It was worth the wait. Kari's research is amazing. I learned new things about England's anti-colonialist past. I had never heard of the Fenians before and I learned new things

Annie Oakley Mysteries #2.
I won this book from Kari's Swag Giveaway on Facebook. I appreciate the opportunity to read and review it.
Annie and the crew are on their way to England to see and perform for Queen Victoria. While on the ship, one of the Queen's servants was murdered and Frank's life was threatened also. Annie sets out to find the murderer. Lots of twists and turns in the story. It kept my interest from beginning to end, I did not want to put it down. I have found a new series to

I thoroughly enjoyed the first book of the series and was excited for this read. The first book was a better book in creativity and building plot lines. This one was unfortunately, rather dull with little substance. The author overused foreshadowing which made the read very trite. There was more time spent on a particular aspect of the foreshadowing that if removed other characters could have been developed more or a deeper plot used.

Sad to say this is 1 star for me.
It was a lot of fun to read this book. It's well written, engaging and entertaining.
I look forward to reading other books by this author.
Many thanks to the publisher and Edelweiss for this ARC, all opinions are mine.

Fascinating Historical Mystery

Truly fascinating. Annie Oakley is a fantastic character, spunky and clever and yet humble. The mystery was great, and the emotional ending was beautifully done. Also, dude, Oscar Wilde makes an appearance.
