Readers are Saying:

I could really see and hear the characters. Loved the ending and how everything wrapped up. Such a positive, light, and entertaining story! “

This is a nice mystery chapter story intended for the young reader. It has a pleasant ‘spooky’ plot that moves along well, some interesting and bright characters (as well as some villains), an unusual dog and an ending that implies there is more to come. And it takes place in one of my favorite places, a library! I think kids will really enjoy it.”

This book was fun. I love a kids go all Scooby Doo mystery book. I liked the plot a lot, and I thought it was interesting watching the girls figure it out. I loved the witch family and the secret heir. The story was a fun ride.”

Nice easy to read mystery.”
