The cover and the title drew me to this book. The description sounded interesting and Olive sounded like a strong character.
The book is about a murder mystery with a bit of a side story of using pigeons during the war. I didn’t realize that pigeons had actually been used to carry messages.
There are several interesting characters along for the ride.
The mystery was good and I was surprised by who actually killed Miss Husselbee.
There was a bit of romance between Olive and Jameson Aldridge which may or may not go anywhere. Only time will tell.
I thought the book was a little slow, too wordy and really seemed to take forever to get where it was going. This book appears to be the first in a series so I’m interested to see if it gets better as it goes on,
I think fans of historical fiction will enjoy this book.
Thanks to bookish first and Netgalley for the opportunity to read an early copy.
