Marissa and the Hammock Mystery: Adventures of a Young Detective

Author(s): A. E. Scotland
One story. Two mysteries. An ingenious thief and a determined sleuth. Someone is playing pranks on Marissa-only this time they've gone too far. Now, a cagey and wily thief stole her favorite locket and Marissa is determined to track down the culprit and get it back. Who is the thief and why? Could it be mischievous neighborhood boys playing a practical joke? Or, is it the strange new girl and her odd mother living in the mysterious house with the flashing lights? Perhaps the thief is someone even more bizarre? From a simple hammock to the scary woods, Marissa and her zany friend, Heidi, follow a trail of clues and in the process make a startling discovery. When Marissa finds out the truth, she is forced to make the hardest decision of her life. Follow Marissa and Heidi as they solve two mysteries, become real detectives, and learn lessons about kindness, trust, generosity, and forgiveness along the way. A fun story filled with intrigue, surprise, and laughter!
