Blotto, Twinks and the Bootlegger’s Moll: Blotto, Twinks #4

We rated this book:


In this fourth book of the Blotto and Twinks series, set in the 1920’s, the Tawcester Tower’s plumbing system has broken down, and destroyed the Long Gallery family portraits. Unfortunately, the Tawcester Tower’s treasury is running low, and in order to fix the damage, the Dowager Duchess of Tawcester has sent Blotto to marry Mary Chapstick, whose very rich father, Luther P. Chapstick III, owns a huge American beef packaging company in Chicago. What’s more is that the Duchess is sending Blotto to permanently live in Chicago at Chapstick Towers. Luckily, the Duchess allows Blotto’s brilliant sister, “Twinks”, to go with him and stay for a short while. While trying to avoid Blotto’s marriage, Blotto and Twinks discover that Luther and his ‘friend’, “Spagsy” Chiaparelli, are doing some not quite right things behind their backs. Will Blotto and Twinks be able to prevent Blotto’s wedding without becoming ground beef?

I liked this book because it was funny. Almost all of the villains had pasta-related surnames like ‘fettuccini’ and ‘linguini’. It did have a few old British English phrases and words, but I could figure them out easily. I will read the other books in the series.
