Publisher's Summary

Audie Award, Best Female Narrator, 2016
Jacky Faber is framed as passing confidential U.S. information to the British. Forced to flee Boston, she goes undercover as a governess for a prominent Puritan family. When outed by a nosy postmaster, she deserts the respectability of her position, dons a leotard and slippers, and poses as a Russian tightrope walker in a traveling circus. But the law soon catches up with her, and prospects do not look good. Through her many adventures, Jacky has always found the ingenuity to escape dire situations, but this time it looks like Puss in Boots has run out of lives... and her happily-ever-after will be cut short at the foot of the gallows.

I feel I have lost a friend.

I have listened to the entire series over the last couple weeks. I am a truck driver so I have ample time to follow through with all the books. I will say this is the best series I have ever listened to, and I am currently more than 30 days of aduble books yes over 720 hours of books.

on to the story, I do feel as though I have lost a friend. I have lived with Jackie over the last 2 weeks and all her struggles and rewards. I have laughed out loud, I have cried, I have been frustrated, and have been dumbfounded. but as Jackie is in the story it always pops back up and leaves me wanting more. it's now time to move on to a new adventure and Jackie had done.

if you ate looking for a series of books that will lead you around the world and back again, through struggles and rewards then this is the series to begin. I will strongly advise the following, listen to them in order bloody jack is the first one, and don't plan on much sleep one you start. as just this past Saturday night I sat in my truck and listened to the book for 7 hours just sitting there (I was going out to eat but the book had me spell bound) I think I finally feels asleep at 3 am.

well I guess the time had come, I must start the search for another series. but Jackie will always be in my heart. (I will probably listen to the series again right now)

Satisfying Ending to a beloved series

Well Played Mr. Meyer you made me laugh, you made me cry and gave Jacky the sendoff she deserved!

Great narration by Katherine Kellgren, as always, but this time she had to do a Russian accent and sing in that accent, you are an amazing talent Ms. Kellgren!

I don’t want to spoil this book for those of you that have read the entire series, so I will just say I enjoyed this book more than Boston Jacky and it was an excellent end to a fabulous series that will forever be a go-to book for me and I know I will listen to this series again and again.

I am sad that the series is over but am glad that Mr. Meyer had the chance to finish the book before he passed away and that we won’t end up with another author coming in and ruining his work. I am so glad your memory will live on in the wonderful characters you have written, RIP Mr. Meyer.
