Fun fact: The first book establishes that the Capital Mysteries universe has the same Presidents as ours until it replaces the younger Bush with the fictional Zachary Thornton. This means that Mary Kincaid, who is introduced in the second book as a middle-aged black woman, is both the first female and the first African American to become the Vice President of the United States. So that's pretty awesome.

Unfortunately, the rest of the book isn't. It's nowhere near as outlandish as the first, but s
In book one of the Capital Mysteries series, KC and Marshall uncovered an evil plot to replace the President with a clone and saved the President and the clone. In book two, they've been invited to meet the President at the National Mall for the Cherry Blossom Festival, but when KC and Marshall leave KC's mom and the President to buy some ice cream, the two adults are gone when they return.
KC and Marshall soon discover that things are not exactly as they appear. Despite assurances that the secr
I liked it. Ron Roy was my favorite author when I was seven years old. But I am outgrowing his books now (I'm ten). Still, they are enjoyable to read.

I like mysteries and these are fun, interesting stories to read.

I read this as a read-aloud to my six-, seven-, and nine-year-old daughters before bed over the course of three evenings. They love Roy's Capitol Mysteries series! They get so engrossed in the mystery, the story, the characters, and the real stories and DC locations. It gets so easy to get sidetracked on fun, interesting discussions regarding DC, which surprisingly just adds to the experiences these books have to offer!

This is the second book in the Capital Mysteries series by Ron Roy. We are enjoying them, although they are a bit far-fetched. I love that they talk about interesting sights in the Capital and it is a good precursor before we move to the area this summer. Although I think our girls prefer Dink, Josh and Ruth Rose from the "A to Z Mysteries" better, we are looking forward to reading all the books in this series.
#2 in the Capital Mysteries series, KC and Marshall are at the Cherry Blossom Festival with KC's mom. They have accepted an invitation from President Thronton, but while the kids are off getting ice cream, the President and KC's mom are kidnapped -- right under the noses of the Secret Service! Who cares if the FBI is on the case? KC has to find her mom!

Read during quiet time today.
