Tuesday book review on Wednesday

Four-star review of Skylar Robbins: The Mystery of the Hidden Jewels: Skylar Robbins Mysteries Book 2 by Carrie Cross

 Shades of Nancy Drew and some of the other mystery series I read as a kid, this one features thirteen-year-old Skylar Robbins. When her parents can afford a larger house, Skylar and her father convince her mother to purchase a one hundred year old four-story mansion on a hill near Santa Monica, California so Skylar can attend Pacific, the same middle school as her BFF dyslexic Alexa. Along with the house comes the mystery of the disappearance of former owner Xandra Collins and her box of valuable jewels. Skylar, who’s determined to start a detective agency as well as to attract the attention of classmate Dustin, sets out to solve the case of the missing jewels following clues Xandra left. Whoever can find the box can keep the jewels inside.
