About the book: The Mystery of Ghost Dancer Ranch is the gripping story of two teenage cousins who are thrown together for the summer at their Grandparents’ ranch in California. While exploring the old ranch, the girls stumble on a mystery that involves desperate crooks, the ghost of a long-dead Sioux War Chief, a young Native American man on a mission to save his tribe, and secret tunnels and caves left over from an old Spanish Mission. Throw in a guardian angel who protects the girls from some evil spirits that want to bring the story to a bad end, and you have The Mystery of Ghost Dancer Ranch, the first in a series of faith-filled mystery adventures for kids, featuring Punkin and Boo.

My review: This was a fast-paced and easy read. Written for children of elementary/middle-school age, the author did a great job of writing a story that keeps the reader’s attention and is full of mystery, suspense, and family.

The story centers on two cousins staying at their grandparents’ house during the summer. I liked the way the author wrote the interactions between the cousins. Their interactions seemed genuine and sincere and added a layer of believability to the story.

The story is well-written and is quick and easy to read. I can easily picture kids wanting to read this book again and again. I also think that the reader will find new things to like and new clues throughout the book with each reading of the story.

If you have a youngster who is into history or mysteries I think they will enjoy this book. Well-written with emphasis on family this book would be a perfect summer read.

I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for my honest opinion which I have given.
