About this book:

But for Abby and Jamie Patterson, these items are essential ingredients to fulfilling their grandfather's greatest desire. Is the fortune real, or are the siblings following a path to nowhere as set down by an eccentric old woman? The quest is on, and time is running out.”

My personal Rating-
What a fun mystery! The ending was a great lead up to the next book in the series. While Abby and Jamie's fussing bothered me, it was nice that others commented on it and bought it to the siblings' attention and they worked on their attitudes towards each other. :)

See y’all on Wednesday with a new review!
