Ghostly Echoes is the third book in William Ritter's Jackaby series that follows R.F Jackaby, Abigail Rook, and their friends, as they try to solve mysteries in late 1880's New England.
I love this series and a large part of what makes me love it are the characters. Jackaby and Abigail are so well written and likable that you can't help but continue to turn the pages to see what happens next. Over the three books, their backgrounds have slowly been shared so that, as a reader, I feel like I know them and I am invested in their lives. Even Jenny, Douglas, and Charlie have captured my heart.
There are a couple of mysteries being investigated simultaneously in this third book. We have the ongoing mystery of what happened to Jenny plus an additional investigation that actually ends up connecting to Jenny's story. It's all very engaging, with a mix of drama and quirky humor and just a tiny bit of romance. I'm really looking forward to the next book.
