I am even more enthusiastic about the author's other two series--the Mathematical Mysteries (written as Ada Madison) and the older one, the Periodic Table Mysteries (written under her own name, Camille Minichino). For my taste, there is more development and change in the characters in the latter two series. Nevertheless, Manhattan in Miniature is a fine contribution to this series, and I highly recommend the other two series as well.
I love this series and really enjoy the friendship between Gerry and her granddaughter Maddie. Maddie is a tween that usually manages to be cute and precocious without being obnoxious. I think she is at her best in this book. She is growing up and is a huge help to Gerry as she tries to balance her obligations to Bebe with her determination to help Cynthia. Cynthia is sometimes unreasonable in what she expects of Gerry, but other than that, I really enjoyed the book. It’s wonderful seeing New York at Christmastime through Maddie’s eyes and the case of Aunt Elsie’s death kept my interested from the very beginning. I enjoyed my time with Gerry and her friends and family and can't wait for the next installment!
It’s not necessary to have read the other books in this series to enjoy this clean cozy. Fans of this series and this author (who also writes mysteries under the names Camille Minichino and Ada Madison) will enjoy Gerry and Maddie’s newest adventure.
