FIVE STARS! “A most delightful novel.” — Readers’ Favorite
Mona Moon is not your typical young lady. She is a cartographer by trade, explorer by nature, and adventurer by heart. But there’s a problem.
Miss Mona is broke. It’s during the Depression, and National Geographic has just turned down her application to join an expedition to the Amazon.
What’s she to do? Perhaps get a job as a department store salesgirl. Anything to tide her over until a next assignment.
There’s a knock on the door. Who could this be in the middle of the night? Holding a revolver, Mona reluctantly opens her door to a man wearing a Homburg hat and holding a briefcase.
“I bring glad tidings. Your Uncle Manfred Moon has died and left you as his heir to the Moon fortune. You are now one of the richest women in the country!” he says.
Mona’s response is to point her revolver in his face. If the stranger is telling the truth, she will apologize. If he is a fraud, she will shoot him.
That’s how Mona does things in 1933.
If you like the Australian Miss Fisher stories
I think you will love Mona Moon, and other characters in this series. The stories are filled with strong interesting characters. Lots of action and some love interest.
I’ve already preordered the third in this series and can’t wait to read it
Loved this character Mona Moon
It is very obvious that Abigail Keem does a lot of research for her books.
She keeps you captivated from beginning to end. I enjoy reading all of her books. Easy to read and every detail is outstanding. You can imagine yourself being right there in the midst of all the action. Another great series from this author. Can’t wait for the next book.
