About this book:

  “Exploring a deserted farmhouse near Uncle Joe's mine, they discover a fancy new dress hanging on the wall. Returning the next day, the dress is gone!”

Series: Book #8 in “Mandie” series. (Read the reviews of: #1 Here! #2 Here! #3 Here! #4 Here! #5 Here! #6 Here! And #7 Here!) {There also is the “Young Mandie Mystery” series, (Book #1 review Here and Book #2 review Here!) but they do not connect together well}

Spiritual Content- Talks about God, trusting, & forgiving; ‘H’s are capital when referring to God; Prayers; A few Scriptures are quoted, mentioned, and prayed; Uncle Ned refers to Heaven as “happy hunting ground”; Mandie tries to witness  to a man who says God has forsaken him; Mentions of Church going;
*Note: Mentions of spirits & superstitions.

Negative Content- Minor cussing including: six ‘shut up’s; Mandie is slapped (barely-above-not-detailed); An injured kitten (barely-above-not-detailed, all is okay); A mention of a spanking; A mention of a young girl who had died (barely-above-not-detailed).

Sexual Content- N/A

My personal Rating-
{Ratings are lowered as ages get higher due to the simple plot.}
Quite a bit more Spiritual Content in this Mandie book! :)
