MY REVIEW

Imagine that you’re a successful attorney who has just lost his dad. Your mother is in very poor health and the last thing she wants to see is her daughter, who vanished without a trace. Even though you don’t trust journalists, you team up with a podcaster who solves crimes. Do you think this is going to be stressful? Yes, but you never thought about falling in love.

Henderson is searching for his long-lost sister in Twin Oaks, Virginia after he sees a newspaper picture of his sister, Helena. He shows the podcaster, Elle, and she is skeptical, but the story could be really big for her business. She and Henderson begin to investigate all through the town, doing everything from hanging up posters to asking questions of everyone.

There seems to be no knowledge of the “compound” that is one of the clues. The deputy sheriff that they meet seems to be sketchy? Is he involved with the crime group? There are so many questions. They get shot at, chased by dogs, and almost get the B & B set on fire as the bad guys try to scare them off.

Will they be able to find the elusive Helena or is she even in this small town? Will their mutual attraction blossom into love or will it just become a terrible distraction from their mission? I think you’ll enjoy this action-filled Christian suspense book. I certainly did.

EXCERPT

Going headfirst down a rushing river isn’t good. I remembered
when Dr. and Mrs. M took us whitewater rafting a few months
ago. We were instructed that if we fell out of the raft we should lie

on our backs and put our feet in front of us. That way we’d hit
submerged rocks with our feet, not our heads.
This knowledge was no help at the moment. I was nothing
more than a rag doll being pitched about. Had I truly escaped the
kidnappers only to die in the river anyway? Which was worse?
Where was Levi? And Chad and Jen? I could see nothing
but roiling, brown water.
I shut everything from my mind except what I needed to
do. My survival required keeping my head above water. At least I
wasn’t crashing against any boulders. After what seemed an
eternity of tumbling and tossing like a washing machine, the river
current slowed enough for me to get into the feet-first position. I
had to focus all my effort on staying that way.
I rounded a curve. Ahead of me, I could see where part of
the river widened into a calm, flat surface. If I could only
maneuver my way into the still water! I kicked, trying to get to the
edge of the water, fearing I’d never reach it.
Then as though the river had decided to spew me out, I

found myself floating gently toward the bank. I put my feet down
and discovered mud under my sneakers. Sloshing to the edge, I
pulled myself out.
A new panic gripped me. Where were the others? Was I
ahead of them, or had they been pulled past this spot, unable to get
out? Or were they even still—no, I wouldn’t let my thoughts go
there! They had to be okay. Especially my twin.

MY REVIEW

This is my first experience reading any books in the Doctoroo series. These books are about a kangaroo who is a doctor and her friends. They travel from Australia to Hawaii and are very excited. They are eagerly expecting the festival, where the pigs are going to dance the hula.

At the festival dancing practice the pigs get hot and very red. They aren’t sure what’s wrong, so DOCTOROO decides to go all over to try and find out what is causing this redness. They end up checking out the volcano, examine a spider, and even look for poison ivy. What on earth is causing this awful redness?

The book was funny and educational. The characters were very dramatic and the illustrations were a little over the top. Children from ages 4-8 are accustomed to very bright and loud television, so this type of illustrations will probably be very welcome.

Things don’t usually come to a screeching halt at the RAT, also known as Ridgewood Arts & Technical School, Ridgewood City’s most prestigious progressive institution. But that’s what happens when Headmistress Hardaway interrupts class and announces, “A scandal has rocked the fundraising committee!” Everyone is a suspect and Hunter Jackson, student council special investigator, vows to root out the student who’s heartless enough to steal donation money. He’s not alone. Ridgewood Roar news editor, Anthony Ravello, and the rogue, indie-press pioneer, Liberty Lennon, plan to do some journalistic digging of their own in a race against each other to scoop the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth to their faithful readers…or at least their versions of it. With the truth getting murkier by the day, students at the RAT gobble up news bytes and wash them down with locker-side gossip as they try to unmask the classmate responsible for the missing funds.

MY REVIEW

Reading The First Kat Dylan Mystery was fun and adventure was behind every page! Although the book was written for ages 10 and up, it was very entertaining for an adult reader, too. I really enjoyed the humor in the book. The sarcasm and snark were on every page and Kat was the toughest young lady that I’ve read about.

Kat didn’t worry that she might get shot or beat up when she got tempted to do something fun or dangerous. Throughout this book Kat was taking upon herself to solve the mystery that had landed her temporary guardian in jail. Someone had set him up and it looked like he was going to take the fall for the bank robberies that were happening in Crabtree, Michigan.

Kat and Alec’s parents were divorced and living on opposite sides of the world. Their dad was in LA and their mom was serving in the military in Afghanistan. Grandpa Nick had taken them in, but when he went to jail they had to stay with a lovely foster mom.

Kat and Alec get into so many dangerous situations trying to prove that their grandfather was innocent. Everyone in the book had their own angle, so the book was a page-turner all the way to the end. Kids are going to love this exciting mystery book.

ABOUT THE BOOK

The Crabtree Monsters

Written by Chris Wieland

Ages 10+ | 384 Pages

Publisher: The Smart Aleck Press | ISBN-13: 9798985701302

Publisher’s Synopsis: Moving from Los Angeles to tiny Crabtree, Michigan, is the last thing thirteen-year-old Kat Dylan wants to do. Crabtree’s seen better days and isn’t what you call welcoming. Worse, the move means living with her gruff Grandpa Nick, the town’s police chief, and having to look after her little brother, Alec.

And that’s before Kat and Alec find themselves in the middle of a bank holdup by the Monster Gang—four robbers in monster masks. Before the heist is over, the kids lose their cash and Alec comes within a hair of losing his life. When it is all over, Grandpa Nick goes to jail, accused of being one of the robbers himself.

Suddenly, this boring little town isn’t so boring anymore. Kat’s determined to find out who the men are behind the masks, and she’s going to need help. But exposing the robbers could have big consequences. The deeper Kat goes, the more she learns life is about making choices, including some that are a matter of life and death.
