Jackaby by William Ritter
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I went in expecting a paranormal Holmes & Watson type romp. I left underwhelmed, yet happy enough to read book 2.
Abigail Rook, newly arrived in America, stumbles into a position with RF Jackaby, observant mystery solver of the strange and paranormal. They make a decent team. I enjoyed Rook's point of view. She's smart, and in the end she saves herself, mostly, and I like that. No shrinking violets here. And there is a hint of romance to come in future books. Not with her boss, because Rook is not a cliché. A decent mystery with a few plot holes but nothing too objectionable. 3 stars.
