Now she must find a way to solve the mystery of her father's murder...before the killers find her." -The back of the book!.
This book is good for all ages. It makes a great read aloud for the family. You will not want to put is down!
The characters are very humorous. they are all very lovable. Jeffery was one of my favorite characters, because of how much humor he added to to story. Alice was someone who I like because she was trying to be so much more
I love the Elizabethan period of history so for anyone else who does this is a fun book. I am not sure of the historical accuracy of the book, I would have to do more research. But is is a wonderful story!
If you like mysteries this is a fun one. You will not want to put the book down! :)
