Nice continuation of the series
on June 3, 2011
I always enjoy the books in the Benni Harper series. This one not so much as some of the previous in the series. Benni is up to her ears in trouble, as usual. The state fair is in town and so is Benni's Great Aunt Garnet. Since Aunt Garnet and her sister, Grandma Dove, are at each other's throats (arguing like the sisters that they are), Benni gets recruited to entertain her great aunt. Of course, at the state fair, they find a dead body (Benni has a knack) ... and Garnet and Benni get wrapped up in trying to solve the mystery.
I like the mellower Gabe and the continued interaction between Hud and Benni - but Aunt Garnet was a little over the top to be realistic.
