Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Praise for The Midnight Tunnel

“What Suzanna lacks in grace and composure, she makes up for in pluck, persistence and cleverness, emerging a likely and likable Edwardian Nancy Drew.” –Kirkus Reviews

“A solid mystery that discloses enough to keep readers involved in figuring out who done it while providing enough layers to leave them surprised at the twists.”–Booklist

Children's Literature - Elizabeth Fronk
The Rosemount Hotel in the small New England town of New Brunswick provides the perfect setting for the undercover work of Suzanna Snow aka Zanna, who is eleven. Zanna records her observations about the people and events at her parents' hotel in the summer of 1904. At some point Zanna hopes to become a real private investigator like her uncle Bruce who is famous in nearby Boston. During a bad storm one night, one of the guests, Maddie Cook, disappears. Zanna believes she saw Maddie in the staff tunnel that connects a staff residence with the main hotel. No one really believes Zanna's story and when the famous detective Bruce Snow arrives, he obviously does not want her help. Fortunately Bruce's assistant and nephew, Will, appreciates Zanna's observations. Together Zanna and Will solve the disappearance of Maddie Cook and even get some recognition from Uncle Bruce. This novel would have been more gripping if there had been fewer red herrings and if some of the secondary characters had been a little more developed. In spite of the false leads, middle-school girls or fans of historical mysteries can look forward to more mysteries with Zanna. First entry into the "Suzanna Snow Mystery" series. Reviewer: Elizabeth Fronk
School Library Journal
Gr 4–7—It is 1904, and Suzanna Snow, 11, is being trained to be a proper lady and hostess at her family's inn in Loch Harbor, New Brunswick. However, Zanna has other aspirations. She wants to be a detective like her famous Uncle Bruce. A chance for sleuthing comes her way when a young guest goes missing on a stormy night. Uncle Bruce is summoned from Boston, but Zanna thinks that he is looking at the wrong suspects. She asks questions and records everything in her detective notebook. What she learns is that not everything is as it appears. In fact she may have the key to solving the case. The Midnight Tunnel gives a bird's-eye view of Zanna's life. She knows the inner workings of the hotel and brings the place to life while she tries to find the missing guest. Mundane things such as electricity, cooking, cleaning, and getting the first catch of the day are all a part of her day. Frazier has created a historical mystery that fans of the "American Girl" series (American Girl) will enjoy.—Shannon Seglin, Patrick Henry Library, Vienna, VA
Kirkus Reviews

The mysterious disappearance of a little girl from the ritzy Rosemount Hotel in Loch Harbor, New Brunswick, during the summer of 1904 triggers 11-year-old Suzanna Snow's budding sleuthing skills. As managers of the Rosemont, Zanna's parents expect her to follow in their footsteps, ignoring her dreams of becoming a detective like her famous Uncle Bruce. Even though nothing exciting ever happens, Zanna faithfully records her daily observations in a notebook while wreaking havoc throughout the hotel. Then one stormy night the daughter of a wealthy guest vanishes, and Zanna notices a diminutive figure in white exiting an underground tunnel used by hotel staff. Zanna also finds a scrap of white material near the tunnel, but the police ignore her clues. When Uncle Bruce arrives to investigate, Zanna can't wait to assist with the case, but he dismisses her as a child. Undeterred, Zanna realizes, "I'm not my uncle...I can do things differently." Relying on her instincts, Zanna eschews traditional female roles as she fits nuanced pieces into the increasingly dangerous puzzle. Each chapter opens with Zanna's detective notes followed by her first-person narration of backstairs life at the Rosemont and the unfolding mystery. What Zanna lacks in grace and composure, she makes up for in pluck, persistence and cleverness, emerging a likely and likable Edwardian Nancy Drew.(Historical mystery. 8-12)
