Both my son and myself agree that this one was the best so far. We both loved the idea of a kids mystery weekend and using the adults as the suspects. We also loved the fact that Maisys best friend is along for the ride. They have to work together as a team to solve the mystery within a mystery. This one was also a little spookier than the rest, which my son got a kick out of. He loved finding out if the manor was realy haunted or not.
In all, this series is a lot of fun. It's well written and developed and Maisy is such an awesome character that girls can aspire to be like. My son is eagerly hoping we see more mysteries being solved by her, though he did say he wanted to see a boy helping her out ;) Lol.
We have a new narrator for this edition and I have to say that I prefer her than the other one. Amy Rubinate did a more natural performance and we enjoyed listening to this more.
My three daughters - ages 11, 9, and 5 - all really enjoy the stories in this series and were eager to hear this latest installment. I asked them these questions when we finished so all of the following answers are their words.
We loved the mystery and that Maisy's best friend Veronica was able to pull off a big surprise for Maisy.
Maisy because she is a really unique detective and she find clues in the places where most children wouldn't think to look.
She helped us understand the expressions better as well as adding little details like lisps to some of the characters.
There were some good plot twists in this one that kept us guessing and gave for some good surprises as we read. We love these books and are already looking forward to book four!
