Carole Marsh Mystery Series

Real Kids! Real Places!

The Colonial Caper Mystery at Williamsburg

One quaint cottage! A mysterious map! One lukewarm log! And a productive print shop! Equals one historic adventure. Grant and Christina can't wait to visit Colonial Williamsburg with their mystery-writing grandmother Mimi and cowboy-pilot grandfather Papa. "It feels like you are whisked back in time when you go to Williamsburg!" says Mimi. And as soon as the kids arrive, they're whisked into a quirky colonial mystery involving a valuable-and missing-map! It's a gift for the Queen of England-but where is it? Join Grant and Christina as they tour some taverns, carouse in the Capitol, take a wild carriage ride, and even end up in 'gool'-all in the name of the Queen! It's a map mix-up you don't want to miss!
