Legacy of the Clockwork Key by Kristin Bailey - ADVISABLE


Bailey, Kristin Legacy of the Clockwork Key, 416 p. Simon and Schuster, MARCH 2013.  $18.  Language: PG (9 swears, 0 ‘f’); Other Content: G.  

Meg is an orphan and lives a very hard life at the mansion of an obsessed millionaire, who only desires everything to remain exactly the way it was the day his beloved wife died.  Meg’s only legacy from her parents is her grandfather’s watch and a keen mind.  When she makes friends with Will, the stable boy in order to get the watch repaired, she is thrown out for fraternization – and she and Will must embark upon an elaborate journey to unravel a series of puzzles to stop a crazy man and prevent murder.  Ok – it sounds a little lame when I write the summary, but really, for girls who like gothic romance, a little steampunk and a lot of danger, this is a good call.  It looks like there is already a sequel planned, but I was happy with how this one ended.
