I wasn't 100% captivated by this, but am looking forward to seeing how Kiki Button develops as the series matures. A fun adventure and light read.

Arc provided by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!

This is the first book in what I am hoping will be a long series, called A Kiki Button Mystery. 

In the first book we are introduced to the glamorous, witty and charming Kiki Button: socialite, private detective and spy. It's 1921, and after two years at home in Australia, Katherine King Button has had enough. Her rich parents have ordered her to get married, but after serving as a nurse during the horrors of the Great War, she has vowed never to take orders again. She flees her parents and the prison of their expectations for the place of friendship and freedom: Paris. 

I really enjoyed this book, much more than I thought I would. I absolutely love Katherine aka Kiki. She is living the life she wants in Paris! Paris in 1921 is the city of freedom, the place where she can remake herself as Kiki Button, gossip columnist extraordinaire, partying with the rich and famous, the bohemian and bold, the suspicious and strange.

ut on the modelling dais, Picasso gives her a job: to find his wife's portrait, which has gone mysteriously missing. That same night, her old spymaster from the war contacts her - she has to find a double agent or face jail. Through parties, whisky and informants, Kiki has to use every ounce of her determination, her wit and her wiles to save herself, the man she adores, and the life she has come to love - in just one week.

I would definitely recommend this book!
