Great Start

This is a quick interesting story that introduces the Wild Wynchesters, six orphans adopted by Baron Vanderbean, Bean to the siblings, who become problem solvers and champions of the underprivileged. Each of the siblings has a special skill that is put to use to solve these and other problems. In this prequel, the siblings have two challenges, exposing a horribly run school for girls and retrieving a special painting stolen from the family by a disreputable duke. When Bean becomes ill (I warn you, you will need a tissue), Chloe steps in as leader of the group. Will the Wynchesters succeed in rescuing the girls from the cruel Miss Spranklin’s school? Will they be able to convince either of the dukes to return the painting? I really enjoyed this story and look forward to the series.

I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.
