Review: Murder Under a Black Moon by Abigail Keam

So, I finished Murder Under a Black Moon. The latest in the Mona Moon Mystery Series. 

I can't tell you how much I love these books. A sassy heroine with a nose for murder. Madeline Mona Moon is a 1930s woman for the modern age. I fell in love with her.

MurderUnder a Black Moon is the latest novel in the Mona Moon Mystery series. Alice Roosevelt Longworth -- of THAT Roosevelt family -- has come to town. And murder has come with her. And Mona's dear friend, Wilhelmina (Willie) Deatherage is accused. It's up to Mona to bring the real killer to justice. And plan her wedding to Robert, Lord Farley. It's enough to make her pull her platinum blonde hair out by the roots.

And the action is nonstop There were plot twists galore. I am not one of those readers that likes to figure it out before the characters do. I like seeing through their eyes, learning what they learn, knowing what they know. It hooks me. It makes me part of the story. And, after all, isn't that why we read?

Mona is my favorite, but I do love Willie and Dexter Deatherage. Violet. Dotty. And of course, Robert. These are all very real people to me. I laugh with them, cry with them, get angry with them. Ms. Keam has done an amazing job in bringing them to life. And her Alice Roosevelt is everything I've heard about and more. The author is faithful to the history, making it a living thing as well. The history of the time is another character.

I love this series beyond measure. And I want more!! Definitely another 5 stars and kudos to Abigail Keam!!
