Fairday Morrow is less than happy about moving to the quiet, country town of Ashpot, not to mention, utterly cheerless at the prospect of living in the crumbling, creepy old manor known as Begonia House.
Nevertheless, that's exactly where she's headed.
Strange music coming from behind a padlocked door leads Fairday up a spiral staircase and into a secret room, where and anc...more

Eleven-year-old Fairday Morrow has low expectations when her parents decide to move from Manhattan to Ashpot, Connecticut--all because her mom feels that some renovating a nasty old house will boost her design career. For a budding detective, however, the old Begonia House proves to be a goldmine. Fairday immediately finds herself immersed in the old mysteries of the home. With her sidekick, best friend, and fellow DMS (Detective Mystery Squad) member, Lizzy, plus new recruit Marcus, Fairday set...more
I fell in love with the characters in this book from page one. Fairday and her family are unique, entertaining, and completely believable. I enjoyed getting to know Fairday, her family, Lizzy and the kids in Fairday's new school. The mystery and suspense is perfect for young readers (and even older ones like me). The writing flows and I never had to re-read or pause to figure out what was going on. I love that the story is easy to read and understand and yet written in such a way that kids ages...more
It is beautifully written and delightfully engaging. The story is quite mysteriously mischievous and easy to follow. Middle graders will love these characters. They are all quite interesting. I love Fairday and her baby sister Margo. I love her best buddy Lizzy and new friend Marcus.

And their adventure was spot on. Fairday's family moves to a new house that is old and unique. It has lots of hidden rooms and one amazing mirror that lead to an amazing adventure. Some surprising adventures with an...more

This book was so great, I honestly don't even know where to start! So let me try to break it down - the story itself had me hooked from the first page. It starts with a news article where we learn about a mysterious death which took place many years ago. Fast forward to the present, and the Morrow family is about to move into the Begonia House. A house that has not had any occupants since this mysterious death. While many kids might be spooked out by the prospect of a haunted house, young Fairda...more
A fantastic book for kids of all ages. This book has everything a kid could want in a story! Adventure, strange old house with eerie sounds and strange happenings, good friends, and a detective agency! The characters are delightful and entertaining.
This is a story that will be enjoyed by both boys and girls!

Hopefully, the authors will write more!
I am very happy to have had the opportunity to read this entire book!! I hope a sequel is coming soon!!

What a rush towards the end! I had a great time making a dash to uncovering the mysteries of the Begonia House, lifting strands in the story like lifting the red hair so we could see the face of the truth beneath. Great characters, a suspenseful plot, a quaint setting and a quick pace. The descriptions were detailed though I had a bit of difficulty with the 'told' and not 'shown' style of writing.
