Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!

#MGReader #Adventure #Mystery – Haunted by Tessa Buckley #BookBlitz #RhymingReview

Alex doesn’t believe in ghosts, but he is about to have his beliefs challenged…

When Jimmy Devlin asks the twins to investigate the strange things that have been happening at The Priory, Alex seizes the opportunity to prove to his sister that there is no such thing as ghosts. However, it soon becomes clear that unquiet spirits are not the only problem facing the Devlin family.

Are the family servants hiding secrets? Has a valuable ring been stolen, or just mislaid? And what has happened to Jimmy’s missing elder brother, Harry? As the twins and Jimmy try to solve the many mysteries of The Priory, they discover they are dealing with a very dangerous enemy…

My Review:

This is a story targeted at children aged nine to twelve
Featuring twins Alex and Donna who like into mysteries to delve
When an old friend returns to join them at school
They discover his new home is ancient and cool
The Priory is his home but happenings there are strange
So the the three agree a sleepover to arrange.

They’ve solved a mystery before and so
Are eager to have another go. 
So starts their investigation into things that are weird -
Are they caused by ghosts or is something else to be feared?
Can the twins help solve another case?
Or with they be unable to keep up the pace?

This is a great read, with plenty of mystery
Set in a house that is full of history 
It is an intriguing story, with secrets waiting to be revealed
Are people who they say they are? What’s being concealed?
Thank you to for my copy of this book 
This is my honest review, I hope it tempts you to take a look!

 Author Bio

Tessa Buckley was an inveterate scribbler as a child, and spent much of her time writing and illustrating stories. After studying Interior Design, she spent fifteen years working for architects and designers. She took up writing again after her young daughter complained that she couldn’t find enough adventure stories to read. This led, in 2016, to the publication of  Eye Spy, the first in a series of detective stories for 9-12 year olds, designed to encourage reluctant readers. The second book in the series, Haunted, was a finalist in the Wishing Shelf Book Awards 2017.  

Tessa lives with her husband and a large white cat called Pippa. in a town on the Thames estuary, which inspired the seaside setting for the novels. She also writes about health and nutrition, and family history, which has been her passion for many years.
