The short version: Yes, you want to read this, but only if you like quirky characters, a good mystery, high fashion, feisty heroines who faint on occasion, dashing heroes who are over-protected, well-meaning family, and knowing the bad guy (or girl) gets what (or she) deserves. If you want a simple, boring story, then this is not the story and Jen Turano is not the author for you.

This is the second book in the Bleeker Street Inquiry Agency series. Good news! If you haven’t read the first one, it’s okay to start here; you won’t have missed anything important. Jump in here. Or go back and read To Steal a Heart first and then read this one. That would be a great idea too.

I have read every book by Jen Turano and she still continues to surprise me. I thought I knew what to expect and so, foolishly didn’t so much as skimming a description of this book before I began to read it and so I was surprised to discover Daphne matched with Herman rather than Cooper in this second novel in the Bleeker Street Inquiry Agency series. Even as I met Herman, I was convinced he wouldn’t be her romantic interest. They were far too similar. And, yet, because I wasn’t paying attention, I didn’t realize until the end that it was their similarities that made them perfect for each other. The conflict Daphne and Herman face on their road to Happily Ever After is not irreconcilable differences, but multiple murder plots and interfering family.

It is an intriguing and entertaining path they take through New York City, a Hudson River house party, Boston, and back again to the City. All the while, they slowly adjust to the idea that they may have finally met their match in life and wonder what to do about it. As if that isn’t enough of a struggle, they must also determine who is trying to kill Herman. I have to admit that was the biggest surprise of all.

I received a complimentary copy from the Publisher without obligation. This is my honest and unbiased opinion. ( )

To Write a Wrong by Jen Turano is the second book in her Bleeker Street Inquiry Agency series. Daphne Beekman is an inquiry agent. She also writes mystery stories under an assumed name. When she takes on the attempted murder of fellow author Herman Henderson, she becomes a target too. You know when you pick up a Jen Turano book that you’re going to meet some quirky characters. Daphne is no exception! But the awesome thing is, Herman doesn’t care how different she is, he see’s the person underneath. There were plenty of suspects in the story. You never knew who to trust. I thought the ending was a little rushed. But overall a cute story.

I received this book from the author for my honest review.

I just have to say, I love Jen Turano's books. Her mastery and aptitude with words, her knack for combining lots of laughter with intrigue and her skill for seamlessly interconnecting faith and the characters’ lives is a true gift. I try to always be on a list for her newest books.

Daphne Beekman, an inquiry agent and mystery writer, tries to stay out of the spotlight. One evening when she goes by the office after hours, Daphne is startled when Herman Henderson, fellow mystery writer, shows up.

Dressed as a pirate, Daphne had planned to run by the office, which was only a few blocks from her home. Daphne hoped to garner ideas for her pirate tale. Herman wonders if he wants to retain the services of an agency which has a pressed paperboard cutlass-wielding pirate to unravel his problem.

So begins the delightfully, and sometimes harrowingly, adventurous tale of the Bleeker Street Inquiry Agency’s endeavors to solve the attempts on poor Herman Henderson’s life. Daphne’s escapades supply comic relief as well as clues to the mystery.

Several other characters in the story range from kind and genteel to horrific and deranged. The story of the latter’s character and his inexcusable behavior, along with its disclosure, may be difficult for some readers.

To Write a Wrong is part of a series but can be read as a standalone. However, to really enjoy the story, I recommend reading the first book in the series, too.

I received this book from Bethany House through NetGalley. However, my review is voluntary, and all opinions are my own. ( )

To Write a Wrong by Jen Turano is the 2nd tale in The Bleeker Street Inquiry Agency series. I suggest reading To Steal a Heart before beginning To Write a Wrong (you will not regret it). Miss Daphne Beekman is an author as well as an agent with the Bleecker Street Inquiry Agency. Daphne is an unusual woman for her time period. She is spirited, creative, clever, clumsy, and loyal with a tendency to swoon. Daphne carries a large handbag that holds a multitude of items that tend to come in handy including a pistol. Mr. Herman Henderson comes to the agency late on a Friday night to engage their services. Herman is a published author who is actually Daphne’s competitor. Herman has had four attempts on his life, and he wishes to hire the agency to find out who is behind the attempts. This is the beginning of a humorous, boisterous adventure. I always look forward to Jen Turano’s book because I can count of them to make me laugh. To Write a Wrong did not disappoint. I did find it a little bit of a slow starter. The first scene between Herman and Daphne seemed to go on too long (it felt a little off). I love that Daphne can hold her own. She might swoon on occasion (she is working on it), but Daphne is not a woman to back down. There is a scene with Daphne at her publishers in Boston that shows off her strengths. I could envision the scene and the faces of the men in the room which had me chuckling (the thought of that scene still makes me laugh). To Write a Wrong is a busy book. I liked all the activity and quirky characters. Romance abounds with the ladies as they meet some new gentlemen. Some things never change. Issues women faced then are some of the same problems women face now. The author brought 1887 New York and Boston to life with her vivid writing. To Write a Wrong is a multifaceted, historical novel that is a delight to read. To Write a Wrong is droll historical tale with matchmaking grandmama’s, a pilfering parrot, a concerned cousin, protective relatives, writing woes, and a not so secret non de plume. ( )

I have yet to read a book by Jen Turano that I didn't love, and the latest release of The Bleecker Street Inquiry Agency series, To Write a Wrong, did not disappoint. The Bleecker Street Inquiry Agency was formed by four women who live in a boarding house in order to help a dear friend who was accused of theft. Of course, in the 1880's women were not considered smart enough to do such a thing, so there is immediately a conflict that has to be resolved. These women are definitely up for the challenge.
The third book focuses on Daphne, a very successful mystery writer who has to use a male nom de plume to be accepted by the publishing industry. Unfortunately Daphne has a knack for getting into strange and hilarious situations as she is called upon to solve mysterious murder attempts on a fellow writer, who of course has no idea what she really does for a living.

Jen Turano has the most amazing ability to create loveable characters and unusual circumstances that are delightful to read. It's no wonder that she's been named "One of the funniest voices in the Inspirational genre" by Booklist. Her mastery of conversation is amazing, and she always keeps me guessing. I highly recommend any of her books, and hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
