The Wolfe Pet Sitting Agency returns to unravel another mystery--and this time, it's a slippery slope for our heroes and their newfound husky-dog sidekicks! Kat Wolfe on Thin Ice is the third book in the middle-grade series about animals and friendship from award-winning author Lauren St. John.
Best friends Kat Wolfe and her American sidekick Harper Lamb can't wait to travel from England to join their parents on a winter vacation in a mountain cabin in the Catskill Mountains. But a series of misadventures leave them alone in the wilderness with eight huskies.
When Kat discovers that an argument she witnessed in New York City holds the key to a major crime, she's certain that it won't be long until the killers come looking for her. With a snow storm moving in and no way out, detectives Wolfe & Lamb will need the help of some exotic animals if they're to survive.
Lauren St John grew up on a farm and game reserve in Africa, the inspiration for her acclaimed memoir, Rainbow's End, and her award-winning White Giraffe series for children. Dead Man's Cove, the first in her Laura Marlin mystery series, won the Blue Peter Book of the Year Award in 2011. Her bestselling One Dollar Horse trilogy for teenagers was followed by The Glory, a breathtaking YA adventure and romance about a long distance horse race across the American West. Formerly a sports and music journalist, Lauren is the author of Seve and Hardcore Troubador: the Life & Near Death of Steve Earle, a superb, gripping biography of an Americana legend. The Obituary Writer, her first adult novel, was published in 2014 and she is currently at work on her second. Both The White Giraffe and The Glory have been optioned for film.
I read this book recently and I absolutely LOVED it!! It's just as good as the other two and a must read for people who liked the first two.
it's about Kat Wolfe and her best friend Harper Lamb. They go off to the Andirondacks in America for a holiday, but then they find out about a gang of thieves that have kidnapped their friend, and them being detectives, they go off to find out what happened, with 6 huskies in tow! I mean, who wouldn't want that..?! :)
I absolutely loved this book, just like I have for every other Lauren st. John book that I've read. It is the perfect mix of action, adventure, some humour, and dogs! What's not to love?? All Lauren st. John's books are amazing, and I hope she'll write many more! <3
This is the long-awaited third book in the Wolfe and Lambe mystery series, which follows animal-loving detectives Kat and Harper as they travel to the Adirindacks and become involved in a mystery regarding the disappearance of the star witness in the trial of the alleged ringleader of the notorious Wish List Gang. The setting is the first thing that deserves a shoutout because the natural beauty of the Adirondacks is conveyed so wonderfully that I really felt like I was there experiencing all the action myself, but I also loved the sense of danger and tense atmosphere that both the setting and the difficult weather conditions contribute to. The mystery itself is also fantastic, I really didn’t manage to guess all the twists, but I loved the way things unfolded and Kat and Haroer’s relationship with Riley was something else I really enjoyed in here. Overall, I think this might be my favourite in the series so far and I’m very much hoping this won’t be the last I see of Wolfe and Lambe’s adventures, because they’re always such interesting mysteries, with a fantastic friendship and love of nature at their hearts.
This one is probably my favourite one in the series because it was so gripping especially the grand reveal. I also liked that we were lead to believe the robbers were doing it for bad reasons when in fact it was for good (but then that sparks a philosophical argument and moral reasoning.l about good intentions.). I think one of the reasons I like Kat and Harper the most is because they genuinely care about the person who has been kidnapped/murdered etc. rather than other detectors in other books where they seem to have no emotion and are just investigating for fun or personal gain. I would really recommend the series they are quite an easy read as well. (10+)
