About the book: When you’re the frazzled mother of eight rambunctious children, there’s little in life that throws you for a loop. So thinks Mormon mom extraordinaire Annie Fisher . . . that is, until she finds herself embroiled in the baffling disappearance of family friend Angus Puddicombe. Following the delivery of a puzzling message and a few startling discoveries, all signs point to—confusion. What Annie knows for sure is that Angus is in over his head, and there is no time to lose. Unaware of the danger that awaits, Annie, her trusty husband, Newton, and a vanload of kids forge ahead to unravel the mystery. Can this group of amateur sleuths get to the bottom of what’s going on before something goes horribly wrong?
My review: This book is a little crazy. I really liked Annie and Newton, their family was pretty crazy with 8 kids in tow. I liked that Annie seemed like a real mother of eight would, a bit frazzled and crazy. I liked how she was able to think the mystery through, figure out just what had happened to Angus, and also a way to rescue him. This is a fun, clean read that you won't want to put down until you too have figured out just what happened to Angus and why.
I was sent an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
