I wasn't able to wait for the audio version to appear at the library. It was time to finish this series of tall tales. Jacky went through the motions of her last adventures and they were charming and funny as always. ( )

After landing in Boston and a tense meeting with her one true love—well, one true serious love—Jaimy Fletcher, Jackie is once again on the lam, this time from the American authorities, and this time it’s something she hasn’t done! She hides out in Plymouth disguised as a governess for a time and then as a trapeze artist in the circus. But with the bloodhounds on her trail, will she ever be able to settle down?

Meyer’s action-filled conclusion to the series, is stuffed full of hair-raising escapes and near escapes, humor and outrageously good melodrama, including a dramatic finale on the gallows, and Kellgren puts all her considerable vocal talents into it.

audiobook narrated by Katherine Kellgren - In Jacky's final adventure, she is once again on the run from someone or other. This time, she's been framed for treason by her nemesis Harry Flashby. Jacky goes adventuring once again, first working as a Mary Poppins-esque nanny and then hiding in plain sight as a circus performer. But Jacky's luck can't continue on forever and eventually she must face her final judgement.

While not a fantastic ending, it is very fitting to Jacky's story. Many of Jacky's friends show up (even if some are a bit shoe-horned) and everyone gets closure, including Jacky and Jaimy (finally!). All endings are bittersweet, but this one is especially so. L.A. Meyer intended to continue writing about other events & characters in Jacky's world, but he passed away shortly before this final book in the series was published. ( )

With the passing of author L. A. Meyer, this is Jacky's last adventure, and it's a good one. It starts out with her *almost* getting to spend time with Jaimie again, but alas it's not meant to be as she is accused of treason and she is on the run again - this time to Plymouth, MA to be a Governess to a horrid boy and his sister. When she is found out, then she joins the circus. Of course she is found out again and then it seems her luck might have finally run out for good.

This was a very satisfying end to a wonderful series. It is especially wonderful on audio. Katherine Kellgren is an excellent narrator. My only quibble is there was less music in this book due to the plot. Otherwise, Sail on Jacky. ( )

In this final book in the Bloody Jack Series, little Jacky Faber's neck is once again in danger of the hangman's noose when she is framed for treason. Can her friends pull together evidence of her innocence before her enemies succeed in having her killed? ( )
