    Middle school age kids will love

    This book is perfect for middle school age children. I really enjoyed it also. It is an adventure story and quite believable. The conversations actually sounded like a kid' s conversation. The editing was extremly well done. Even though this is an older book, it has a current feel to it. The length is nice and does not have all the horn blowing by the author before and after the story, which is great, because I like to form my own opinion of the book and the author. Boys and girls will enjoy this book and many grown ups also if they are young at heart.

    Book

    I agree on the lost interest. Coudn't make it through the first couple of pages. Books have to catch my attention or they don't get a chance from me.

    4 STARS Mystery of the Missing Money (the Mystery series) is a

    4 STARS

    Mystery of the Missing Money (the Mystery series) is a short story. It takes place a week after their first adventure in The Mystery of Smugglers Cove. This is a really short story that stands alone but the characters are really introduced and fleshed out in the first book.
    The story takes place in the 1950's where the children play outside and explore thier world. Thier is a empty Castle and the four kids explore.
    Will tells the story to the three other kids about the bank robbers that were caught in town on his 9th birthday and the money was never found.
    While the children go back in the castle to look for a braclet one of the girls lost. They find the two escaped prisoners who came back to retrieve thier stolen money.
    I liked the story and would like to read more longer stories in the series.
    This one was really short one that I got free on Smashwords.
    I will read more books by Paul Moxham in the future. This was an adventure with lots of action for a short story.
