Bookapotamus: The Silver Box

In the final Enchantment Lake mystery, Francie’s search for the truth about her mother—and herself—plunges her into danger during a North Woods winter

Did you read Nancy Drew or The Hardy Boys series as a kid?

I was obsessed with them! 

So, I am beyond excited to be on the blog tour for The Silver Box by Margi Preus. Francie is like a modern day Nancy Drew, who although she only played a detective on TV, may have a bit of a knack for not only finding trouble, but also solving murders!

This fun series might be a middle-grade/YA-ish mystery series, but as you know, I definitely am not part of that age group (lol) and still enjoyed every minute reading The Enchantment Lake Mystery series!
