Ellie and Ace are back on the case!
The soon to be, nearly, just about, almost world famous detectives are sniffing out clues in one of their toughest mysteries yet.
Real trouble threatens their small town of Huckleberry Springs. And it threatens the town right where it matters most-in the stomach!
Each night, a troublemaker strikes, stealing all the peaches from one tree after another. Soon there won't be a single peach left in Huckleberry Springs, which means there won't be a single peach pie either. Ellie and Ace have to solve the mystery fast-before pie-time is gone forever.
"All the peaches are gone. The tree has been picked clean!" Will explained.
Ellie stared at Will in horror. No peaches meant no peach pie! She did not even know a word for how terrible this was!
"I have to get to the bottom of this!" Ellie raced off to check the back yard. She had to solve these peach robberies right now!
Can girl detective Ellie and her dog pal Ace catch the peach pincher? Read to find out!
this is my second Ellie+Ace story and I loved it better than the first. Both are great stories and the narrator does an awesome job. The only fault is that there aren't more available. I highly recommend them for children of all ages.

Adult readers might have an issue with the similar overall mystery to the first book in the series, but kids won't mind. Mine sure didn't (age 5 and 9). Their attention remained the entire time and they would NOT let me stop playing it. They had to listen to the whole thing.
This is a really cute book for kids that give a terrific intro to detective reads. This is perfect for your budding Sherlock Holmes! And what a sweet mystery!
Ellie and Ace are a great combo and really fun to read. I listened with my five year old nephew and he loved it! it wasn't really easily solvable, too few big clues. Still a nice challenge. Perfect for young readers who want to try and solve a mystery!
I listened to the audiobook narrated by Tiffany Williams. She has a great voice that really fits the material. I would have liked a touch more energy in the read, just to keep the movement going. My nephew liked it as well but thought Ace should have had a silly voice.
Overall a fun listen that was quick and tasty!
