During Prohibition, honest men became crooked, and in Mistaken, by Karen Barnett, it is Laurie Burke’s brother, Johnny. Daniel Shepherd is back in town and Laurie is convinced he is rumrunning with her brother. Daniel thinks she is rumrunning with Johnny. Federal agent, Samuel Brown, has come to town too, determined to catch everyone who is rumrunning.

My Thoughts- I should never start reading books when I go to bed, because I usually can never put them down. That was exactly what happened with Mistaken, by Karen Barnett. The Prohibition theme along with captivating characters like Laurie Burke, her brother, Johnny, and Daniel Shepherd were what kept me reading.
The most interesting part to me, aside from the Prohibition, was the relationship between Laurie and Daniel. They never told each other the truth about themselves until much later in the book. They could have eliminated so many problems if they had told each other the whole story. The same could be said for the relationship between Johnny and Laurie. Their examples made it concrete to me that I always need to say everything that is happening in my life to my family, no secrets.
I enjoyed this book so much, that there was nothing I disliked.
I recommend this book to adults, I believe that women would prefer Mistaken more than men.
