“Bess, George, and I are heading down to Key Largo, Florida, to enjoy some fun in the sun with my old friend, marine biologist Delia Duke. But it seems that Delia’s state park is clouded over with mystery: Someone has been poaching the park’s rare butterfly orchids. Their future depends on us!

George seems more interested in searching for treasure in the Catalina, an old sunken Spanish galleon, than in hunting for an orchid thief. My hope is that George, Bess, Delia, and I can save two priceless treasures in one fell swoop.”

“There’s been a snake-napping at the River Heights Zoo, and all clues about the thief seem to point in my good friend Charlie’s direction. But why would Charlie want to steal a snake? I’m not convinced he’s the perpetrator, but with all the circumstantial evidence that keeps popping up, the cops are on the other side of the fence.

Speaking of snakes, George’s younger brother, Scott, has been slithering around a lot lately, all sneaky-like. He’s not acting like himself, but his lips are sealed about what’s wrong. Do these mysteries have anything to do with each other?

Stick around. I’m about to find out! ”

“If I told you I was worried about George’s health because she’s taken up fencing, you’s laugh. Foils today are totally safe, and the gear is padded besides. Right?

Well, if so, why did I see blood at George’s first meet? Skewering isn’t in the legal fencing repertoire — but it soon becomes apparent to me that someone’s too fired up to care… “

“Dad, Bess, and I are all set for London when Ned’s Shakespeare professor asks us to do a simple favor: to take a look at his townhouse while we’re there, since he can’t seem to locate the housekeeper and fears something’s wrong. Sounds easy enough, so I take the key.

Eager to cross the favor off our list, we stop by 53 Banbury Square shortly after we land. And let’s just say things in the townhouse aren’t quite tip-top. And the key? Well, it unlocks a Pandora’s box of serious trouble. “

“A prince is in River Heights. A prince! Granted, he’s from a relatively minor royal family, but still. This is big news.

The headlines get even bigger once the prince is found toting a painting for his family’s good friend Mrs. Mahoney — because within hours of his arrival, the federal authorities arrest him. They suspect he stole the painting from his family.

Dad and I aren’t buying it. We have a hunch there’s more to this — ahem — picture. But can we save the prince before he’s wrongfully crowned “”criminal””? “

“So I was sitting with Ned in a lecture, and then bam, Ned’s in a three-piece suit, and I’m in a city hall meeting on how to get through the beginning of the Great Depression.

As in the Depression, in the 1930s. What’s more, there’s a thief to track down. Someone’s robbing local banks of what little money they have. Everyone’s panicked about their money, so the thief could be just about anyone. But after spending just a little time in this odd place, I have a hunch there’s more to it…”

“San Francisco has tons to offer tourists like Bess, George, and me. Fresh crabs, cable cars, hikes — and stalkers! Well, maybe stalkers! is a little harsh, but this older couple, Ed and Harriet, keeps popping up everywhere.

Coincidental or not, Ed and Harriet’s appearances are smelling fishier than San Francisco Bay to me. So the investigation begins. But who knew it’d lead to more sleuthing — in Hawaii? “

“Just as I’m gearing up to help plan the Mahoney Library’s seventy-fifth anniversary celebration, the beautiful old clock, the very centerpiece of the library, is stolen. There’s nothing like a good theft to stop a party!

Naturally, I throw down the streamers and get to work. Turns out lots of people wanted that clock — and what’s inside. If I don’t hustle, this might become two crimes instead of one…. “

How about a seat at a mystery dinner on a riverboat? Yes, please! I jumped at the invitation to go along with Bess, George, and George’s mom, who was hired to cater the dinner. It’s all fun until there’s an actual theft, and there’s nothing like a good crime to stop a party. Since I’ve got the magnifying glass, it’s up to me to catch “sticky fingers” before this dinner’s sunk.
