    I been to biltmore house before and I can tell you every fact about the house. If it was me to stay locked up in the house one night I would be scared. This story is thrilling, you never knows what happens. A+

    Great book!!!!!!

    At first I was upset that there was no "Christina" or "Grant" characters, but it is a really good book. It talks about interesting facts in Biltmore and it is that type of book where you do not know what is going to happen. Like one minute somthing bad, the other good. But over all it is for 7-12 year olds. :) Great book!!!!! Carol Marsh has done it again!!! Review by Isabel Adams

    Mystery of Biltmore House

    This book is great and my kids liked it so much they actually asked to go there instead of going to Disney World this year!!! To keep my kids entertained is a large task, but they couldn't put it down. I highly recommend it.

    Mystery of Biltmore House

    I love Harry Potter, but I think that kids need to learn about historic places in america too and what better way to teach them than to make it fun and interesting. In a time when Patriotism is high these books definately fill the order.
