"Fine Print" by Chautona Having

Book Title: Meddlin’ Madeline Fine Print  
Author: Chautona Havig  
Genre: Historical, Mystery  
Release Date: February 20, 2018

Budding detective, Miss Madeline Brown, has gained quite the reputation for “meddling” in the circa 1900 city of Rockland. With two successful “cases” under her belt, it was only a matter of time before she found something new to interest her insatiable curiosity. This time, however, the “curiosity” found her. Challenged by Edward Gastrel, to prove her deductive prowess, Madeline embarks on riddling out the puzzle of a journal left to him by his grandfather. If she can decode the contents, the local gentleman may find himself in the possession of something quite valuable. As usual, however, things aren’t as they seem, and Madeline finds herself in a race against more than time and ambiguity.

My Review
"Fine Print" by Chautona Having is the third book in the
"Meddlin' Madeline" series. I have read all three and though the book does mention Maddie's past cases, this book could be read and understood without reading the other three but I recommend reading all three in order.

I enjoyed reading how Maggie solved the puzzle of the journal. I wish I had her detective skills because I couldn't solve the clues until it was pointed out in the story.

There were several quotes that I especially liked in this novel and they are as followed;  "Madeline, sometimes love means mutual interest growing into mutual affection and then love. Other times it is one person giving up his desires for what the other needs and trusting God our Father to know what is best for his children."

"Why do we ignore the simple act of prayer in favor of worry? " I ask myself this all the time, unfortunately the book didn't give the answer!

I really like this one "You told me to read as if I didn't have to and read it as one of my mystery stories because the Bible has mysteries to discover" This is talking about the Bible. Here is the rest of the quote " And I have. I've said to myself every day as I pick it up. "I wonder what I'd discover in this today? "

From the quotes that I have shared, you might get the idea that this is a book full of religious ideas and such but there isn't much more religion and Bible talk then what I have mentioned here. It is really a fun and light mystery story.

I was given a complimentary copy by the author and Celebrate Lit. These opinions are my own.
