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... read the reviews! 

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.

Author Interviews are posted on Fridays. The DMS seeks out the best middle grade authors today and brings them here to chat about their stories. 

Margo's Musings Fridays are sometimes shared with Margo, Fairday's little sister. This post focuses on reviewing 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!

  1. My favorite holiday story? Christmas Carol, educating without being preachy. This is my favorite from Dickens ;p
    Scares me most? Being alone, I'd like at least one human company when there's dark time ahead ;p

  2. Though not exactly a story I don't think you can beat Twas The Night before Christmas by Clement C Moore.

    Do you have to periodically sign in with GFC? I seem to have disappeared as a follower on several blogs.

    Anyway, great giveaway and thanks for the link to the other participating blogs.

  3. Yay for bloghops! My favorite holiday story would have to be James Herriot's Christmas Kitten story. My mom, sister, and I used to read it every year and totally bawl our eyes out!

  4. We seem to be reading a LOT of Polar Express lately, my youngest loves trains

  5. I love A Christmas Carol. It is such a wonderful story; plus, it has ghosts. michelle_willms(at)yahoo(dot)com
