Horn Book Guide Reviews

In these capers, the amiable teen sleuth investigates incidents of sabotage at the River Heights Horse Show (Midnight Rider) and becomes embroiled in another mystery when a bookstore goes up in flames (Thriller). There's a predictable formula to the twists, red herrings, and cliffhanger chapter endings, but it's an entertaining one that keeps the pace brisk. Nancy Drew aficionados will be satisfied.
