Book View: Boston Jacky

Short & Sweet: Boston Jacky is the reason I resubscribed to Audible, needing the audiobook and not willing to wait any longer. The narrator of these books is Katherine Kellgren and her level of awesome is through the roof. Jacky is back in Boston as is her love Jaimy. Again there's a wedge drawn as Jaimy finds a painting from her latest travels that makes him believe Jacky's innocence has been compromised. Instead of letting her know he is in Boston, he decides he will stay undercover as a hunchbacked man sent to Boston for trading. I love Jacky and […]

Book View: Rapture of the D..

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 […]

Book Review: In the Belly of the Bloodhound

When they go out on school outing on a ship, they end up finding out that they are captured and their fate is to become slaves.

Book Review: Under the Joll..

Book Review: Under the Jolly Roger

This is probably one of my favorites in the series so far. I just love the insane situations Jacky gets herself into and somehow manages to wriggle out of. I don't want to ruin anything so I won't go into too much detail but I love how Jacky can makes friends anywhere and turn it to her advantage when she is in most need of help. This swash-buckling tale is mostly told on the high seas, where Jacky must defend her honor against a crazed captain while trying to figure out how to escape her fate. Oh Jacky, you are […]

Book Review: Curse of the Blue Tattoo

Poor Jacky has been left ashore at a school for young ladies, where she can't help but get into loads of trouble. Her new nemesis is a cocky girl named Clarissa and Jacky falls out of favor at the school quickly with her rash nature and quirky need to bend rules. Although Clarissa is harsh to deal with, Jacky also finds that the preacher is after her to adopt her and to strip her of her wicked ways. Jacky generally doesn't worry much, but this preacher seems to have a past that screams murder. Definitely another tale filled with music, […]

Book Review: Bloody Jack

Book Review: Bloody Jack

Mary (aka Jacky) is orphaned at a young age and decides life would be easier if she dressed as a boy. She happens upon a ship and manages to become a ship's boy. Only problem is, if someone finds out, it's to the noose with her. This book is full of violence, romance, life-threatening situations, and some more serious subjects like sodomy, rape, menstruation and death. Definitely a book that will keep you reading (or listening) until the very end. This book also takes place during the early 1800s when Britain is at war with the French and there is […]
