A cozy mystery for middle grade with a recipe at the end just as it should have. Truly Lovejoy and her family are transplanted to Pumpkin Falls, New Hampshire, after her dad is injured in Afghanistan. She is the middle of five siblings and has hit her growth spurt before the boys her age -- hitting six feet before she has even turned thirteen.

There are many plot threads that the author ties nicely together: new girl in middle school, big town family transplanted to a small town, struggling bookstore, and more. Plus there is the mystery of the envelope Truly finds in the pages of an autographed edition of Charlotte's Web. Highly recommended!

Fast-paced, character-driven, cozy mystery with a strong sense of place and a large cast of quirky characters. This middle-grade fiction book is a good pick for realistic fiction fans who want to try a mystery, or for mystery lovers who care about the characters and setting more than the crime. Read-alike: Moon Over Manifest by Clare Vanderpool.

Really awesome book for middle school and high school! It was lots of fun to read as you joined in on the mysteries of the letter and the missing book. Pumpkin Falls has more than what meets the eye!
