Book 2

Any additional comments?


This second book in the Crime Solver's series is as delightful as the first.
Previously 12 year old Karrine had taken her younger cousin under her wing and allowed her to help solve crimes over summer vacation. Now Jayden is back with her family and a new school year finds fewer crimes for Karrine to solve.

The biggest mystery yet

The biggest mystery to be solved by the Crime Solvers Detective Agency yet, and Karrine handles it like a pro! My daughter and I enjoyed listening to this suspenseful story as much as the first book. Schwimley writes excellent mysteries. The only negative I can say about this book is that all the other characters were way too rude. Children tend to imitate what they see/hear so a little less rudeness and more manners would be a great change. Overall, it’s a huge 3 star book for me.

Fun story for my 10 year old

Cute story about a kid detective that solves crimes in her community. I listened to this book with my 10 year old. Neither one of us listened to or read the first book in the series. In my opinion it is not necessary to read it first.

The story of the kid detective seemed really far fetched and there was some dangerous situations that kids should not be putting themselves into. Hopefully, any kid that reads/listens to this book doesn't get any ideas of starting their own detective agency. Aside from that, my daughter enjoyed the book very much. She thought it was cool that kids were out solving crimes.

The narrator did a fine job. My only negative was that I thought she talked very fast. There was hardly much of a pause between sentences and the narrator rolled right in to the next chapter although that I suppose is more of an editing issue.

Kids loved it

My son loved this book! He loves crime and mystery books and he's only 6! But the cool thing was my daughter wanted to listen. She is not a fan of auto-books! She didn't want to stop!

Hits the mark completely!

This book is aimed at young readers, and my 10-year-old son and I listened to it together. He intently followed the story, laughing out loud (as only a boy would) over the dialogue and the storyline. Even today, my son is still chuckling over some of the jokes. I'd say this audiobook completely hits the mark for the intended audience. The narrator really captures the youth of the characters, and we loved their voices, too

When her neighbours car gets stolen right out of there garage Karrine is on the case, only to discover that its not the only one. Apparently there's a whole lot of GTA going on in town.

Armed with her handy new partner Jared, she heads out to find the culprit and bring justice to her neighbourhood again.

Another exciting story from the Crime Solvers!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes. It's perfect for middle grade kids. An exciting and fun story - An easy story to resonate with!

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

How Karrine goes about her business. Clever, witty, determined, ambitious, confident, and self-driven. Infectious.

Which character – as performed by Grace Sin – was your favourite?

Karrine: Grace Sin provides an upbeat and polished performance of this highly engaging character.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I liked the scene where Karrine went into Mr Jackson's stables, on the pursuit of an employee named: 'Stinker' - It was a very humorous encounter! - And Karrine's comment: 'he was easily ten pounds over the recommended weight of a teenager' - that made me laugh!
