My personal Rating-
This was a pretty clean read! I do feel like that Mary was acted out like she was older than what she actually was. Not my favorite Guidepost mystery book (that would go to the Secrets of the Blue Hill Library series), but I did enjoy it. I plan on checking out the rest of the series so see if I’m interesting in the later books. :)

See y’all on Friday with a new review!
