Description-

  • Another wild mystery needs to be solved and it's up to the Pumpkin Falls Private Eyes to solve it in this hilarious follow up to the heartwarming middle grade mystery, Absolutely Truly.
    Even Truly Lovejoy has to admit that teeny-tiny Pumpkin Falls, New Hampshire, has its charms—like the annual maple festival, where tourists flock from all over to sample the local maple syrup, maple candy, maple coffee, and even maple soap! But when someone tries to sabotage the maple trees on her friend Franklin's family farm, Truly has to rally the Pumpkin Falls Private Eyes to investigate.

    Meanwhile, she uncovers another, more personal mystery under the floorboards of her very own home—a diary written centuries ago by her namesake, the original Truly Lovejoy...and it might just prove her family's ties to Pumpkin Falls run deeper than anyone ever could have imagined.

    Following Absolutely Truly (2014), this second Pumpkin Falls Mystery follows middle schooler and gumshoe Truly Lovejoy as she tackle mysteries surrounding a local feud and a family secret. Adjusting to life in Pumpkin Falls, New Hampshire, 6-foot-tall, white Truly's looking forward to celebrating her 13th birthday with her visiting cousin, Mackenzie, during Maple Madness, a popular tourist event highlighting the local maple sugaring season. When sap lines are sabotaged at two rival maple sugar businesses, locals quickly take sides, prompting Truly to activate the Pumpkin Falls Private Eyes as they surreptitiously set up video surveillance in the sugaring bush. Meanwhile, Truly's discovery of a hidden diary belonging to her ancestor triggers intriguing historical investigations into whether the Lovejoy house served as an Underground Railroad station during the Civil War. In her down-to-earth, vulnerable, unassuming voice, Truly reveals her love of swimming and bird-watching, her growing crush on a classmate, her unfounded jealousy of Mackenzie, and her irritation with her interfering younger sister. Historical subtext about the Underground Railroad and the New Hampshire setting add special dimensions to this rural mystery. Truly's fans cheer the return of the likable sleuth in this family-oriented mystery in which past and present collide. (Mystery. 8-12)

    Gr 4-8-Pumpkin Falls, NH, is a long way from Austin, TX, but it is the place that Truly Lovejoy and her family now call home. It's where her dad's family is from, and when her father was injured in the war in Afghanistan, it's where they returned to be part of the family business, Lovejoy's Books. Mackenzie, Truly's cousin, is visiting from Texas and wants Truly to show her around the town. At this time of year, the biggest thing going on is the Maple Fest. The syrup is flowing, and the town is beset by tourists eager to soak up the charm of quaint Pumpkin Falls. However, someone is sabotaging the maple tree taps, and tensions are rising as people start suspecting one another. The protagonist and her friends resurrect Pumpkin Falls Private Eyes, which originated in Absolutely Truly, in order to investigate. In the meantime Truly and Mackenzie unearth another mystery: a diary left behind by the protagonist's ancestor, the original Truly. As the kids search for the story behind the diary, they begin to wonder if it ties into anything that is currently going on in Pumpkin Falls. Fans of the first book will not be disappointed in this mystery, while new readers will fall in love with Truly and her family as they cope with all the excitement and mystery in Pumpkin Falls. VERDICT A well-written and engaging light mystery. Recommended for most school and public library middle grade collections.-Laura Fields Eason, Parker Bennett Curry Elementary School, Bowling Green, KY
