Quotes & Awards

  • “An assured, entertaining whodunit…There are genuinely affecting moments, too.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Bruce Lee and Jackie Chan meet Nancy Drew..This novel will keep young readers guessing…Readers will appreciate Randi’s determination to make a difference.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “Haunted cabins, secret tunnels, corrupt politicians…An entertaining, suspenseful read. Randi’s grief over her mother, and desire for her father’s attention, add a layer of vulnerability to her appealing character.”


  • “The reader can uncover the clues with Randi, and there are activities at the end of the book that teach the reader some of Randi’s techniques…This fast-paced book flows easily and is both engaging and entertaining. Randi is accurately portrayed as a curious yet caring pre-teen who sometimes quarrels with her dad, and readers will undoubtedly identify with her as they master their own sleuthing skills.”

    Children’s Literature

  • “Author and narrator Olivia Spencer knows her characters well and sounds as if she’s having great fun bringing them to life… In Spencer’s delivery, the town authorities—from mayor to chief of police, town crank, and ice cream parlor gossip—all reflect the twang and drawl of Deer Creek, Tennessee.”
