Books under the Christmas Tree ~ Part 3 (Middle-schoolish)

The Great Mogul DIamondNow that I've mentioned a couple of books for the youngest among us, here's one for the middlest among us~ I reviewed The Secret of Indigo Moon this past spring~  the second in a series of 3 by G.P. Taylor. It was good enough that Eldest decided that she wanted to read the 1st book in the series, The First Escape. She wasn't quite as enthralled with it, but was still interested when we were offered the opportunity to read/review the third book in the series, The Great Mogul Diamond (List price $19.99).

The Great Mogul Diamond Follows the adventures of the Dopple Twins and their friend Erik Ganger as they race through Europe via trains and speedy automobile~ Hoping to save someone they love, and possibly the great Mogul Diamond as well.

Given how frequently sequels don't live up to the original story, I found it very interesting in this instance that the stories kept getting better! Eldest was delighted by the final story in the series. The mystery was filled with action, and the graphic design I mentioned in my first review definitely showcases dark vs. light. This might be a great gift for your mystery-loving pre-teen/ early teenager (Hey, *I* even enjoyed reading this one, so there you go. :) ).
You can get a feel for the story by downloading the first chapter and decide for yourself.

I hope this helps if you are still scrambling to find a book for your mystery-loving tween/teenling. :)
Amazon* currently has it selling for $13.59

Blessings~
