THE BIG BIRTHDAY MYSTERY was an interesting and entertaining read. I am a a big fan of mysteries and I was disappointed with this one. It was a quick read that grabs your attention right from the beginning with a few twists. The characters were believable and the story not too predictable. Nothing is worse then knowing the outcome before you even get there. This was not the case. Overall, if you are looking for a quick read that entertains you, this book is for you!

Gone are the days when only your children enjoyed comedic mystery novels and hello to the new times. This book is a mixture of Nancy Drew and Scooby-Doo with a more adult version of comedy. A typical children's mystery novel with a dash of adult innuendos and more sophisticated language. Sure, your kids can still read this book (they won't get the jokes), but be prepared to be asked what many words mean. However, this is mainly for adults (or any "mature" teenager). The author uses language of a different time, which is good because it follows it's time period, and really works to expand your vocabulary. Her use of comedic wit and banter is great and will have you giggling like an idiot every few pages. If you're in the market for a pick-me-up kind of read, pick this book right on up and you'll be glad you did.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
