"Mandie and Her Missing Kin" by Lois Gladys Leppard

About this book:

  “Mandie is thrilled at the chance to visit Swain County, North Carolina, where her friend Joe Woodard lives. It's also her father's home territory, so with Snowball leading the way, Mandie and Joe decide to explore the old log cabin where Mandie had lived with her father before his death.
  The locked cabin appears deserted weeds everywhere, no livestock around, and not a soul in sight. But Joe and Mandie notice smoke rising from the chimney. Someone must be inside! Then Mandie and Joe catch a glimpse of a face peeking out from behind a curtain. Who's hiding out in the old log cabin? It's another exciting mystery for Mandie to solve!”

My personal Rating-
This book! My main two emotions reading this Mandie mystery was “Ahh!” and “Argh!” All the Mandie & Joe feels are in this one! Doesn’t matter how many times I’ve read those certain lines, I still get so giddy about them.

See y’all on Monday with a new review!

*BFCG may (Read the review to see) recommend this book by this author. It does not mean I recommend all the books by this author.
