Top Customer Reviews
the life of a young Cubain boy, in the thrilling,
suspensful book by Carolyn Kien, "The Clue of the Black Keys".
I read the entire series as a girl and am rereading them now as a grandmother. They are relaxing and always neatly wrapped up with the "good guys" winning. The series is refreshing in the face of so many slasher and dark mysteries that populate today's fiction.
(My one complaint about the Kindle editions is the number of misspellings and typos and even incorrect words and verb tenses. At times it interferes with the enjoyment of a paragraph. One that is repeated in multiple Kindle Nancy Drews is the word "profferred". Apparently, Carolyn Keene liked to use this word and Kindle always prints it as "preferred". It should read "he profferred his resignation", but Kindle has "he preferred his resignation". It's as if they are auto-edited and not proofread. Still and all, very happy that they are offered on Kindle.)
