There is a hidden treasure in the grand old mansion on Piccadilly Street, in a place called London, but not the real London of English fame. There’s also a lot of mystery and a murder that’s been unsolved for decades. But it’s the treasure that captures Mary’s interest. Mary lives in this house along with her family, her Brownie friends and a ghost. When the ghost reveals her secret about the hidden treasure, there’s no stopping Mary, her Brownie friends, or her enemies from searching for this treasure. Why the intrigue? Apparently there’s a little bit of magic connected to this treasure. And so the adventure begins. Who will find the treasure first?

What a fun book for young readers. While it contains some of the difficult feelings we all went through as we grew up, it does so in the kind of fantasy we love to read. I was so pleased to read such a fun, light book that mixed everyday problems, being new to school, hoping to fit in, looking for a friend, with magical people and a witch and a ghost. Sort of a getaway that all of us, children too, need to read about now and then. I noticed this is Book 2 of a series titled Piccadilly Street and have not read Book 1. It seems to me this book can be read as a stand alone just fine although it was fun enough that I would like to read the first book. Emily-Jane Hills Orford has many books published. This series is for the middle grade reader. All the author’s books seem to have good reviews.

This book is the epitome of adventure for the young reader. Almost from the word go, this sequel takes off back into the world of ghosts and magic. Mary is faced with daily challenges that only can be overcome with her faith in family and the magical life she leads. The reader is buffeted from one threat to Mary to another but Mary never gives up. Written in a way to instill faith in young readers, this book illustrates clearly that no matter how bad off the situation, if you keep battling, you can overcome. Mary is knocked down but never out. With the superb addition of her friend and protector, Rosie, this duo ensure Good will triumph. A terrific read that will appeal to the huge worldwide audience who loves Harry Potter. Disclaimer: I received a copy from the author in the hopes I’d review it. My Rating: 5 stars

The second story in the series of Mary's adventures is an exciting read. Mary now shares the secret of her Brownie friends with her best friend Rosie who becomes her protector. Together with Granny and the others they find themselves in the midst of enemies, friends, family and danger. Flying dragons breathing fire, rings of power and rescues. It's a lot of action and fun with surprises too. Magic is real and the little people can prove it. Just open your mind to a world of possibilities. My grand daughter and I read this together and taking her words I dressed them up just a bit. She enjoys the world of books as much as I do so I didn't have much work to do. Wonderful book and crazy fun to read too.

Mrs. Murray hid a special ring in the house but can’t remember where. Miss Penelope is back and wants that ring to increase her power. Mary has her hands full recovering from her illness, fitting in at school, and being the youngest child. But she is determined to find the ring and try to stop Miss Penelope. Everyone is back for another adventure. Mary just knows that evil witch is Miss Penelope since she is acting just like the witch in her last adventure. Then she learns about the ring of Mrs. Murray’s and goes on the hunt for it to keep it out of Miss Penelope’s hands. Thankfully all the magical creatures are there to help her. I love this series. This book is written where it can be a standalone but I really enjoyed it right after reading the first book. My heart goes out to Mary. She has made a friend but Miss Penelope is just horrible to both girls. I loved everything Mary goes through to find the ring and all the magical creatures that are along for the ride. This is a wonderful story for all ages even if it is meant to be a mid-grade read. I really hope there is more to come in this series. I can’t wait to read more about Mary and Mrs. Murray’s adventures. I received a complimentary copy of this book. I voluntarily chose to read and post an honest review.

Reviewed by Peggy Jo Wipf for Readers' Favorite Mrs. Murray’s Hidden Treasure by Emily-Jane Hills Orford continues with Mary adjusting to her new home and recovered illness. But she is positive her teacher, Mrs. Penelope, is the witch that trapped her in her dream world and has followed her out. Penelope has not only singled Mary out in school but also her friend Rosie. The resident ghost, Mrs. Murray, figures Penelope must be after the magical ring she once hid, if only she could remember where. The adventures Mary faces will entertain and amuse young people as they can imagine the danger that confronts her. The life of this little girl will fascinate adults as they remember the escapades of their youth.   Though Mrs. Murray’s Hidden Treasure is a sequel to Mrs. Murray’s Ghost, Emily-Jane Hills Orford has written it so it could be read alone. Mary faces everyday problems such as trouble at school, being the youngest child, and uncertainties because of her age. Add to that the supernatural events happening within her house; the drama of the Little Folks (Brownies) within her walls, the forgetful ghost, and an evil spy causing mayhem. This novel blends everyday life with a mystical twist. It would be easy to see the author continue with more books in The Piccadilly Street Series as there is more for Mary to accomplish, relatives to meet, and her training has yet to begin. Overall, I enjoyed this novel and would highly recommend it to junior high students who enjoy fantasy with a twist of magic.

Reviewed by Deanna R Sweeney for Readers' Favorite Mrs. Murray’s Hidden Treasure by Emily-Jane Hills Orford is a delightful tale of a young girl named Mary and her many unique friends. Mrs. Murray is a ghost who resides in Mary’s house. She has hidden a treasure somewhere in the house but can’t remember where. This treasure has drawn the attention of the evil witch Miss Penelope, who is a foe that Mary has faced before with her friends, the brownies. The brownies are little people who live in the walls and are sworn to protect the people who live in the house, especially Mary. Part of the treasure is a magical ring that would make Miss Penelope even more powerful. The brownies believe that together they should be able to keep Mary and the treasure safe from Miss Penelope, but Mrs. Murray reveals that they may have a traitor in their midst. I really enjoyed this story from start to finish. It was an easy and fun read. The characters were unique and well developed, the narrative was engaging and believable, and the writing was clearly professionally edited. This is the kind of story that I could see my own kids reading. I think this book would do very well with grade five and six aged children and would be a good addition to an elementary school library. The only suggestion that I can think of to improve on this book for that market would be to add a few pictures. I would definitely recommend this book and would like to see it continue in a series.

Reviewed by Jack Magnus for Readers' Favorite Mrs. Murray's Hidden Treasure: The Piccadilly Street Series, Book 2 is an adventure fantasy novel for children and preteens written by Emily-Jane Hills Orford. Mary loved her house on Piccadilly Street and adored the family of brownies and even the ghostly apparition known as Mrs. Murray who had come into her life with her family’s move to that most intriguing house. So much to explore in the old house’s secret passageways, and, there was even a treasure. A treasure? Well, Mrs. Murray did seem to recall there being one, but she’s long forgotten where she put it or even what it was. Still, the very thought of hidden treasure was an irresistible lure. School was another story. While Mary loved most of her classes and had made a new friend named Rosie, Miss Penelope, a teacher who also was the gym instructor, was quickly becoming the bane of Mary's and Rosie’s lives. Miss Penelope was sadistic and dishonest, and she was making a point of giving the principal and their parents a totally skewed version of their behavior in class. Mary was seriously wondering if Miss Penelope was really the Witch Penelope she encountered during her time in the Dream World. They seem awfully alike. Mrs. Murray's Hidden Treasure is a marvelous continuation of the story begun in Orford’s first book in the series, Mrs. Murray’s Ghost, but the author provides enough background information for this story to be enjoyed as a standalone. That said, I adored the first book and heartily recommend it to everyone. I loved seeing how the author continues her story in Mrs. Murray’s Hidden Treasure and expands the personalities and interrelationships of her characters, and Mary’s excitement over the concept of hidden treasure makes the plot even more enticing. Orford’s characters are finely honed and fun to watch as brownies, humans, and a ghost interact and form a large and supportive family. Mrs. Murray’s Hidden Treasure is well written and a hoot of a mystery story that will appeal to anyone who’s ever wondered about hidden treasure in spooky old Victorian houses. Mrs. Murray's Hidden Treasure: The Piccadilly Street Series, Book 2 is most highly recommended.
