Out of all the Hardy Boys books (that I've read so far), this was quite a let down. Infact, I was pretty surprised myself! I predicted the culprit from the start (it was pretty dang obvious) and it turned out to be the Captain Creamy, alright. I'm currently hogging The Rocky road😋
Overall, it was good. Both the ice cream and the book.

Hardy Boys dumbed down...I hate to say it. In fact I've been avoiding saying it. But this one is just...well....that.

Not only are the storylines made simpler and the reading lines made simpler, the boys also lost several IQ points in the transition. I don't like how Mom and Aunt Gertrude have become completely clueless about everything. If you ask me, they were a lot cooler back when they knew what was going on with the boys, and were actually supporting their crime solving habits.

But this?

It was good

I gave this book a 4 because it was good and would recommend it to anyone who likes crime or mystery. Two brothers that are under cover go on a mission to find out who is vandalising and breaking school property in their town right before the end of summer and school starts.I liked this book because the ending is very unsuspecting.

Returning to this series after a long hiatus makes me sad...because I wish I had read this one sooner; it's a blast!

When I first read Hardy Boys, I think I was in class 5, I had such a crush on Frank Hardy. I liked the brainy one over the brawny one and that sums up my first impression of Hardy Boys.
In their late teens, Frank and Joe Hardy take after their detective father Fenton Hardy. Frank is the older of the two and has more breakthroughs in the cases because he is the brainy one. Joe is the younger brother who more often than not is useful when things get hot and they need to fight their way out.

I have volunteered in a library for years and am always looking to see the popular books available for the younger group. Frank and Joe Hardy books have been around for many generations to enjoy. This series, Undercover Brothers, has the boys still solving crimes but with a modern twist. In this story, after many diversionary side trips, the boys help solve a crime in their fact at their own school. I do prefer the original Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew series. However, if this type of ...more

Well, it seems I figured it out before the Hardy brothers again. Go me! Personally, I thought it was really obvious and I can't figure out how they didn't notice who it was sooner, but who cares?

The ending made me laugh pretty hard. Not sure why, but I found it hilarious.

Not much else to say about this book, so I guess I'll move on to the next one.

Hardy boys are still in high school and they are sent on missions that are not real but get then away from their home town where bad things are happening.

It was a very fun (short) book. I think that the escalating murder mystery was very interesting. I would recommend it to audiences that like a quick fun read.
