Mystery on Rampart Hill Reviews


Deftly written by Emily Burns, Mystery On Rampart Hill launches the new "Rocky Mountain Mysteries" series for young readers ages 8 to 12. Tyler, Steve, and Stephanie Thompson search the old house on Rampart Hill (which is slated to be converted to a community library) to discover why a series of strange happenings is occurring there. Is someone trying to stop the creation of a library? The Thompson kids are determined to solve the mystery so that the whole town can benefit from the proposed new library. Enhanced with occasional black-and-white illustrations by John Breeding, Mystery On Rampart Hill is the kind of wholesome novel that will instill a love of reading in children and leave them anxiously awaiting the next adventure of the Thompson siblings!

~Midwest Book Review

An awesome beginning to a wonderful new mystery series! These kids reminded me of the books that Nancy Drew and The Hardy Boys would team up. The characters fall between the age range of 13 and 16.

The story seemed to flow smoothly and is written in a way that even readers as young as eight could understand and enjoy! Also, just like the Drew and Hardy mysteries, the author made the main characters up to be perfect as role models for the young! I hope to see many more mystery adventures involving the Thompson kids and their friends!
