This review is for the second book in The Alex Mysteries series of book and the third book from the collection of books I’d won through a giveaway on LibraryThing written by Barb Asselin; and the following is my honest opinion.
In The Case of the Summer Swiper the two sleuthing Alexes are once again on the trial of a culprit, sorting out any and all clues they happen to find along the way until the mystery is solved. These stories remind me of the Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew Mysteries those who are my age read as a child.
With school over and their summer vacations just beginning Alex and Lexi, the Two Alexes, were eagerly waiting for some sort of mystery to come up for them to solve in their usual manner.
However when they discovered who the culprit is this time, they get an important life lesson regarding old people and why they do the things they sometimes do without realizing it. It’s a lesson which some adults need to learn themselves.
For giving its young readers an entertaining mystery as well as an important life lesson, I’m giving Ms. Asselin 5 STARS.
NOTE: If the spelling smells odd or a word seems out of place it’s because the author has used the Canadian/British spelling or usage of the word. This doesn’t affect book’s enjoyment.
