On the very day that Jacky Faber is to wed her true love, she is kidnapped by British Naval Intelligence and forced to embark on yet another daring mission—this time to search for sunken Spanish gold. But when Jacky is involved, things don't always go as planned.

Jacky has survived battles on the high seas, the stifling propriety of a Boston finishing school, and even confinement in a dank French prison. But no adventure has quite matched her opportunistic street-urchin desires—until now.

Short & Sweet: Jacky is once again snagged from the arms of her lover, this time to embark on a diving adventure to help the British fund their ongoing war with the French. I was really actually quite relieved to see Jacky back on adventure. I'm starting to think maybe marrying Jaimy would actually do her some injustice. I love the new characters in this one.. especially Aunt Jemima with her tales of Brother Rabbit. And of course the reappearance of a few roguish beaus from Jacky's past is always fun. Beware, this one ends on a huge cliffhanger, so make sure you have the next on hand to keep on with the fun and adventure!

Final Verdict: This series is a must-read and I highly suggest it on audio! Kathryn Kellgren does an amazing job at singing all the songs and doing Jacky justice. I can't recommend this series enough. It's definitely far-fetched but totally fun to read.
