Review of Skylar Robbins: The Mystery of Shadow Hills by Carrie Cross

Skylar Robbins wants nothing more in life than to be a Private Investigator like her late grandpa. Skylar learns she will be spending the summer in Malibu with her Aunt Caroline, Uncle Jim and bully cousin Gwendolyn. She will also be attending a new school for the summer.  Armed with PI kit and diary she sets out to have the best summer she can while her parents are in Europe.

There are few rules that need to followed: she is never to enter the attic, her great Evelyn's things are stored there, she is also not to go into "shadow hills" that is located behind the house. Shadow Hills is a nickname for the Rocky Mountain Range behind Gwen's house. 

Skylar soon discovers a secret garden and a good friend from school. Kat opens a new world for Skylar. A world unlike Skylar has ever known. The adventure Skylar and Kat go on for the summer will have Skylar facing fears she never knew she had. She will find courage along the way that will save her and Malibu.

This book is for the younger readers but I LOVED IT ! !  I hated to put it down! Its well written and keeps you on the edge of your seat  :) Its full of magic and mystery ! I can see Skylar Robbins being a favorite with many little girls.

5 magic stars
