A new antique shop has opened in Sleepyside, and when Trixie and Honey visit the shop, they find Carl, the owner, rude. But Trixie really gets suspicious when he asks them to do him a favor on a weekend trip to Paris, and they find themselves being followed after doing it. What have they stumbled into?

While not among my least favorites in the series, I certainly do see the flaws. The plot drives the book more than logic and the author has to twist things around in pretty painful ways to get to t

Trixie and Honey go to Paris and get involved with a counterfeiting ring. It's a strong plot, considering we're nearing the end and the apathy of the writer is growing.

Recommended 9/10+ for scary situations

a HUGE and most dedicated fan of Trixie and her crew. This is odd, of course, because they were MEANT for teen and pre-teen girls, but I was a young boy that read everything he could get his hands on and when I first stumbled on my first TRIXIE BELDON book I was instantly hooked!

I immediately sat about reading them all, as quickly as I could get my greedy little paws on them. Trixie is the star, or "lead" character, followed by Jim and Honey (who quickly became the love of my young life, I had

Oh heck no! I love Trixie Belden books but there are a few things wrong with this one. Trixie a finalist in a spelling bee are you kidding me! Mart is bad at spelling? Yeah right he's the one who always uses fancy words. Trixie is smart enough she would know not to pick up a random package from Paris for a stranger. Right at the end, Trixie knitting and not forced too. This book just kind of lacked the good old mystery I love about this series and messed up how I think the characters should be.

Okay, even if they weren't my favorites, I give 37 of the 39 books in the series at least 4 stars (really liked it). But this book (and #38) get 3 stars. I can never decide which one I dislike more. Trixie and Honey go to Paris and somehow get conned into taking a mysterious package back home with them? Are they really that gullible (read: stupid)? Trixie knitting? And liking it? Trixie and Honey serious contenders in a spelling bee? What did we ever do before the mall? Ugh, ugh, ugh! This book ...more

Another good Trixie Belden story, with the gang working together to help people and to solve a mystery. This mystery is a little far-fetched, as well as a repeat of a previous mystery to be solved involving counterfeiters. But still a very enjoyable read.

Definitely not the best of Trixie & the Bob-Whites, but I needed a mood lifter after the last book I read. The kids of Sleepyside never fail to provide comfort and a few chuckles. Everytime I read a TB book, I feel young again.
Afraid I must agree with some other negative reviews of this TB installment; it certainly isn't one of the series bests. In fact, it reads almost like a ND. Still, I love the close-knit BWG and their adventures.

Great children's mystery series featuring thirteen year old Trixie and her friends Honey and Diana...

Trixie Belden was one of my earliest great media obsessions. I absolutely adored all of the books and desperately wanted to be Trixie.
