The twins are growing up quickly as they develop a crush on new characters Abby & her cousin Holly & help the girls solve a ghost story in their house!! The twins have to enlist Aunt Gigi in helping them to capture the mischievous Ghosts! The twists & turns the story takes & the ending are amazing once again! Janice's husband John did a wonderful job with the illustration of the cover, too! Fits the story perfectly! Even tho Ghost stories tend to be scary, this story has it's scary points, but it is a really fun adventure! I received a copy in return for my honest review.

Once again, Davey and Derek are off on an adventure to solve a mystery. These two young detectives are on the trail of ghosts that are living in their friend Abby’s house. Abby and her cousin Holly are school mates of Davey and Derek and have more interest in them than just finding the ghosts. When they visit Abby’s home, a large old Victorian house, they discover the house holds secrets even Abby’s parents didn’t know about. Of course, once again, they enlist their Great Aunt Gigi to help them. This was once again another delightful middle grade book in the Davey & Derek Junior Detectives Series. Davey and Derek and their friends are delightful children who are respectful and considerate of others, but who don’t hesitate to do a bit of sleuthing under the nose of Abby’s parents. As with the other books in this series, The Case of the Sad Mischievous Ghost is well written and meets the author's criteria for instilling the love of reading in children. I highly recommend The Case of the Sad Mischievous Ghost to all middle graders and to their parents. This would be a wonderful book to share, with parents taking a turn reading aloud. I received this book as a gift from the author.
