Read/listen to the book online!
Fear not the unexpected.

The Begonia House keeps its secrets. Everyone knows that. Everyone that is, except for clever eleven-year-old Fairday Morrow, whose family has just moved in. Being the Senior Investigator in the Detective Mystery Squad, more commonly known as the DMS, she’s ready to uncover the mysteries hidden within the strange manor. As the investigation gears up and the pieces of the puzzle begin to fall into place, the DMS enters into a world where anything is possible, and the danger is most definitely real. Follow along with Fairday and her friends, as “spooky” meets “lovely” in this twisting tale of dark secrets and hidden pasts.

Check out the book!



What Fairday's Blog! is all about...


 
Fairday's Riddles are posted on Mondays- they can be written about anything, and everything, all at the same time : )

Lizzy's Book Reviews are posted on Wednesdays. Lizzy has read just about every middle grade novel out there, and she loves to share her thoughts and, of course, her opinions.

The Top of the Heap is a post we put up on Thursdays. We thought it would be fun once a week to put up two things that we appreciate and have been thinking about during the week. I enjoy doing this post because I love the Google hunt for the perfect image to accompany the topic of discussion.


Margo's Musings Fridays belong to Margo, Fairday's little sister. This post focuses on reviewing local children's book authors, which we follow up with an Author Interview.


The DMS Wants to Know was a post we came up with for Saturdays because when we get together to hang out on the weekend, we always chat about different situations and ideas that are floating around in our brains and we like to listen to what other people think about them- some of the comments we've gotten have been absolutely fascinating!


We'd love to hear yours! Happy Reading!

  64. Thank you for your generosity, and for participating in this blog hop! Nothing particularly lucky has happened to me this past year. As a matter of fact, I've lost two uncles in the span of 8 months...but, all the adversity has made me appreciate life more, look towards the Heavens more, read more and love more. If nothing else, I'm lucky to have my health, be surrounded by loving family, and amazingly supportive friends! :D

  66. Hi! :) Thanks for stopping by my blog as well to join in the hop. :D Hope you are having a wonderful time.

    Hmmm, something luck that's happened to me in the last year... well, I got my brother all lined up to go to Balticon with me over Memorial weekend. I just hope he doesn't bail on me when it gets closer. I was worried I wouldn't have anyone to go with me, then I wouldn't go. :)

    Hope you had a wonderful St Paddy's day!
