Winter has been refusing to give up and plaguing the northeast with random snow storms and I thought it would be the perfect time to recommend a book to read while snowed in. I present to you “Yours Truly” by Heather Vogel Frederick.
Truly Lovejoy is still trying to fit into her new life. Her family recently moved from Texas to the small town of Pumpkin Fall, New Hampshire. Her father, a former military man who lost a hand in Afghanistan, has gotten his family’s bookstore back on track and Truly and her family are beginning to feel at home. Then Maple Madness hits. The town’s annual maple festival rolls into town with maple tastings, a bake-off and a mystery. Someone is stealing maple from the local farms and Truly and her friends, the Pumpkin Falls Private Eyes, are going to stop at nothing to find the culprit.
“Yours Truly” is a fast paced, middle-grade tween friendly book with delgihtful characters and a charming setting that will please mystery fans.
