Book Review - Spotlight Club: Mystery of the Bewitched Bookmobile
The Spotlight Clubbers are helping out at the local bookmobile and they have a mystery to solve. "'This is our mystery so far,' said Cindy. And she read: 1. P. Nelson Edward. He said he doesn't know Olga Ratchett. But he does. And she is very mad at him. Why? It has something to do with the time. Was he late? For what? 2. Olga Rachett. Why was she angry with P. Nelson? Why was she so upset about the bookmobile being closed early? 3. The man with the silver cane. Why was he angry at Olga Ratchett? What did he write down? Was it something about the bookmobile? Or the sign?" And now, someone has broken into the bookmobile. The Spotlight Clubbers are on the case to find out who--and why!

My Take on the Book
My daughter and I are always looking for a good mystery to read, and this new series is a great one for any budding sleuth. I do have to admit that the first chapter was a little slow as it set the stage and introduced the characters, but after that the mystery began and you had to start using you mind and searching for clues along with the trio of sleuths within the story itself. The book was fun and light and kept us engaged, and in the end you will be happy to see where it all leads. This is a great new series that my daughter and I look forward to reading more of within the future!
