I have read some short stories by this author before, they are always interesting and she obviously has a love of puzzles and mysteries. This full length novel for teenagers was so much more detailed than I expected. It is a cleverly constructed murder mystery with great characters ( at the centre of them the plucky, Denali Hawthorne). When a body is found behind her garden it is at first regarded as the sad result of a moose attack but Denali soon begins to suspect human foul play.

A Blurb :

Denali was concentrating on finals and Christmas shopping, but a moose in the front yard and now a frozen body change her focus. Was it moosicide? Everyone seems to be writing off Jake's death as a moose attack, but Denali isn't so sure. As she learns more about Jake, she finds that there were a number of people with far better motives for his death than the moose. Can Denali find the real killer?

This was my favorite story included in the Denali Hawthorne Mystery Collection!
It is such a fun and quirky mystery. Denali is a great main character and I just loved her spunk and determination! Her level of curiosity reminds me of myself when I was younger!

Lisa is an exceptional young adult writer and has definitely written a winning series for young teens.
If you like mystery and slightly bizarre happenings, you will...more

Delightful YA mystery set in the refreshing backdrop of Anchorage, Alaska.

I really enjoyed this easy-flowing tale – like a cool breeze. Great winter story for the summer!

In addition to a satisfying conclusion, the reader is rewarded with a fun mini mystery for dessert.

Moosicide? I love it.

Lisa Hall Deckert’s teenage protagonist Denali is a delightful young woman whose sense of justice compels her to get to the bottom of things.

In They Called it Moosicide, Denali’s keen skills of observation help to acquit the neighborhood moose and entrap the real killer of a boy whose reputation garners him little sympathy.

In Trouble Aboard the Hawaiian Paradise, Denali’s aunt treats her to a Hawaiian cruise, and mystery is afoot before they ever board the ship. When a young housekeeper’s reputa...more

Denali Hawthorne is 16 and lives in Alaska. One day she comes home from school to find her neighbor lying dead in the snow-- trampled by a moose. Except Denali's seen a lot of moose, and none of them have ever been very confrontational. What would make a moose do such a thing-- unless maybe the moose was framed.

Denali and her brother and friends have a mystery on their hands!

This was a fun book. I really liked Nali and it almost made me want to live in Alaska-- but I hate snow :-) I will admit...more
