I received a copy in exchange for an honest review

This series is so much fun! And this is another great book in this series. I like how smoothly the story continues form the previous books. It's absolutely necessary to read this series in order as else it probably will be confusing and the fun part is seeing how nicely each book progresses and continues the storylines from the previous books. Every thing that happens has results and storyline that got set up in the previous books are continued o

This is book #4 in a unique new mystery series. The books can be read in any order because each story is complete but they are best read in order since each book builds from the one before it. I think that every book is better than the previous one. They are well-written with all loose ends neatly tied up. If you find a loose one you can bet that it will be fixed in the next book.

In this book the kids in the Detective training Boarding school in England continue to look for the missing Detectiv

Nick is back and so are Amanda’s confusing secrets! Another great mystery for Amanda Lester.

Amanda is sure her feelings for Holmes are still strong, though he is quite hurt. But when Amanda has an accident, being knocked off her skateboard by a rare peacock, she wakes up on Nick’s boat. Was that kiss a dream or did Nick really kiss her?

There is too much happening for Amanda to spend much time on her love life. One group of teachers has left the school. Amanda’s cousins and several of the student

Amanda Lester and her student detective friends at Legatum College have plenty on their plates, searching as they are for nine of their colleagues who have been trapped by zombies, and for the missing Detectives' Bible. However, that doesn't stop them investigating an archaeological mystery right on their doorsteps, or observing the peculiar behavior of a muster of blue peacocks.
Amanda goes one further. She promises to help her former best friend, Nick, free himself from the reach of his evil fa

What was Nick Moriarty, her ex-best friend, now her mortal enemy, doing in her bedroom? And why was that old red Formica table there, and that tiny oak cupboard, and that awful yellow beanbag chair?

Synopsis: Waking up on board the Moriarty family's boat face-to-face with Nick - once her best friend and now her sworn enemy - is just one more confusing thing for Amanda Lester to cope with. The split between the factions of teachers at Legatum Continuatum sent half the instructors to Scotland to es
