    This story was a about a girl who lost her dad since she was little. Her name was Elisabeth. She lost her father because he was a pirate and when he was sailing the police have been arrested Elisabeth¿s dad. Also Elisabeth¿s mom has been passed away. Later when she was 13 years old she got a letter from her uncle at New Orleans and the letter said come and work at his bakery. So she had to ride the boat. When she was in the boat she met Mr. Robinson. Mr. Robinson is lawyer at New Orleans. Later she told Mr. Robinson what happen to her father then he gave his business card to Elisabeth. However she met Mary and Mary is a one of the workers at the bakery. Then she met Claude and Raul. They are workers too. When she work she met a evil person and he also tell about a map. So Mary and Elisabeth start¿s to find the map. However they found the map. She went to Mr. Robinson¿s house. Then she met a guy and he told Elisabeth if she gave the map to him he will release her father. So she gave it to him. But later Elisabeth heard that someone came to the bakery and he told him that ¿this thing looks really nice but I want to go get some Boston breads¿. Elisabeth turns then she saw her father. She ran way to him. That¿s what did I learned from this book was how can a girl leave without his parent and how people treat you when you have nobody to take care especially when you don¿t have parents. The other part that I learned was who ever hurt you how to be brave.

    A fun and exciting story for young readers!

    "...The events in the book are very fast-paced - maybe too fast. It's a good size for a middle grade novella, but as an adult I would love to see the story more fleshed out. Everything just seems to unfold much too quickly to be realistic, I think. Again, though, that's just coming from the perspective of an adult. I don't remember my exact thoughts as a child reading this, but since I kept the book on my shelves, I think it's safe to say I liked the book just fine. It's a fun mystery about a young girl in a new and exotic city, and in 1814 there was not only danger of invasion from the British, but also danger of pirates! The famous Jean Lafitte actually plays rather a significant part in Elisabet's story, as a matter of fact, which makes it all the more exciting and mysterious..."

    The First And The Best

    I really think that this one was the best, it's full of suspense and it was one of those books that I just could not put down. The others are great as well, but this one was the only one that I could read more than 2 times and still get into it.

    Only the suspence will keep you reading

    This book was okay, but not the best book to kick the seris off with. I truely enjoyed it, and it was well written, but my type of book. It had alot of suspence but not enough excitement for a mystery book. The suspence was the only thing that kept me reading, but that's just me talking. Anyways this book is great for ages 10-12. It gets them into American history. The best part is for those who love this book and want more there are 16 more to read.

    The Smuggler's Treasure

    The Smuggler's Treasure was an outstanding book! Your story made me want to read the other History Mysteries books! Your book was a great contribute to the series and im sure your next book will be too! The part I like best was that she had to solve more than one mystery through out the story! Can't wait to read your next book, Enemy In The Fort! Keep up your great work!

    A Treasure To Keep

    This book is full of mystery and suspense. Here is the back of the book's summary [I don't MEAN to plagerize] : It's 1814. America is at war with Britain, and 11-year-old Elisabet Holder is suddenly alone. Her father-the only family she knows-has been taken prisoner by the British. Sent from Boston to New Orleans to live with relatives she's never met, Elisabet soon learns that a treasure is hidden in her new home. Her desperate search to find the treasure and find her father's freedom takes her deep into a world of pirates, smugglers, and enemy ships! I hope that you will all enjoy it as throughly as I have. Please email me if you enjoyed the book.
