The youngsters come across some clues which lead them to think that they might be able to solve the mystery, but they also feel sorry for the victim and change some of their money to silver dollars to give him. Then they are accused of the theft. What will happen to them? Who really stole the coins? And will they ever find out who did it? I read my first Carole Marsh Mystery back in 2008. It was The Mystery at the Kentucky Derby (#15) which I purchased when we were visiting at a state park in Kentucky. I picked up The Mystery in Chocolate Town (#18) when we were visiting the Hershey Museum in Hershey, PA, a couple of years ago and have just now gotten around to reading it. A few euphemisms (ohmygosh, darn, heck) occur, and there is a reference to dancing.
However, Marsh weaves a lot of interesting historical and geographical information about Milton and Kitty Hershey, the Hershey Chocolate Company, and the town of Hershey into her story. We really enjoyed our visit to Hershey, but even if we hadn't been there, reading the book makes it sound as if it is a fun place to go and see.Read more ›
