Book The Huntress

 Book: The Huntress

Author: Kate Quinn

Pages: 576

This is my 93rd read for the year

This story is about several people but mostly Nina who was a night bomber in the war, and Jordan - a young American who dreams of being a photographer.  Nina becomes an expert flier but when she becomes stranded, she becomes the target of The Huntress and barely escapes.  A few years later - the war is over and she enlists the help of some friends to find the Huntress and bring her to justice once a for all - especially for her crimes of killing children.  

Jordan, recently engaged, finds out that her father has become engaged himself.  Jordan's mom died years ago and the idea of a stepmother actually brings her joy.  Especially since her new stepmother comes with a 4 year old daughter named Ruth, whom Jordan is immediately smitten with.  However - during her father's wedding, a discovery about her stepmother gives her pause and wonders who exactly her dad married.

This was a pretty good book.  I did find it dragging at times - especially with the Nina parts of the book.  It seems to be overly wordy.  I enjoyed the Jordan sections much more - trying to figure out the mystery of her step mother more than Nina's plight at a pilot.  It was easy to figure out who the Huntress was, but still an enjoyable story to get there.

Stars: 3.5
