Lady in Red by Tessa Buckley - Guest Blogger Book Review


Synopsis

Pursuing the truth can be a dangerous game…

School’s out for the summer, and Eye Spy Investigations have a new case - looking for Lady in Red, a lost masterpiece by Victorian painter, Gabriel Pascoe.
The clock is ticking for Alex and Donna, because the artist’s house, Acacia Villa, where their friend Jake lives, is due to be demolished, and vital clues may be destroyed. And Alex has an additional problem: he is terrified of snakes, and Jake has a pet snake called Queenie…

As the twins pursue their enquiries, they come up against the man who wants to demolish Acacia Villa. But Mr Mortimer is the godfather of their baby half-sister, Sophie, and criticising him could open up family rifts, which have only just healed.
Then Queenie goes missing, setting in motion a disastrous train of events that will turn the search for Lady in Red into the twins’ most dangerous case yet.

Jennifer's Review
A good book for children and adults. 
It's about an old man who tells two kid detectives about a missing painting that he is looking for. 
The kids and their friends go around town asking about the painting. One person they ask has other plans for the artist's house where they find a cellar but not the painting of the Lady in Red. 
What is his plan, and where is the painting? When the kids find out what the bad guy plans to do with the artist's old house, they try to stop him, but how? 
This is a good mystery book. 
3 stars.

Author Bio
When I was a child I was always scribbling away: I’ve still got a huge collection of stories, plays and comics in the attic from that time. Then in my teens I got distracted by exams, boys, and my first job, and eventually the writing tailed off. I had a successful career in architecture and design, and it wasn’t until many years later, when my ten year old daughter complained that she couldn’t find any good books to read, that it occurred to me to take up writing again. I had recently had to give up my job due to health problems, so it seemed the ideal opportunity to fulfil an old ambition. Since then I’ve written many articles on health, nutrition and family history, two books on nutritional therapy, and two children's novels..
