Book 6 of Mysteries for Boys & Girls for Great Summer Reading!

Here is Book 6 of the Davey & Derek Junior Detectives Series, The Case of the Mystery of the Bells. I will be sharing and showcasing all six books one at a time, each in their own post. This is the last of this series. The next series I will be showcasing is the Abby & Holly Series. If you haven’t read these yet please share with your MG/PT/YA for fun adventures in summer or anytime reading.

I wrote this series for my two middle grandsons who love to read about adventures and mysteries. They are my inspiration to write.

These books are enjoyed by both girls and boys and also parents and grandparents who pass them on to their children. My husband, John, is the illustrator and cover creator for these and all my books. This series has been compared to the Hardy Boys’ Books.

Available also on Barnes & Noble all Jemsbooks. Book 6 coming soon to Barnes & Noble.


Step into another magical and fun adventure with the twin detectives to solve this new mystery. There are clues at every turn, ghostly dreams with strange messages, and a surprise visitor that shakes things up. Even Aunt Gigi and Mianna are at a loss to provide any assistance to the boys.
Will Davey & Derek be able to solve this mystery of the bells? Where do they turn? Will they be able to put all the clues together? Can they use their new birthday gifts in this adventure? Find out what the boys do in this magical mystery.

I have put in an introduction in each of these books to help children understand the characters and the story line. Each book is a stand alone story with a satisfying ending that will leave children feeling happy and wanting to read another one. There are life lessons to be learned as children read that will please parents.

I believe children of all ages need good, wholesome and clean books to read that will encourage them to want to read more. Reading is good for everyone’s health by bolstering up confidence, spurns creativity and memory, eases stress and chronic pain and makes you feel happier. It’s also an escape from troubles and the craziness in this world around us. Get healthier and start reading!

Another wonderful book!!

Michelle Clements James5.0 out of 5 starsI love the way the author portrayed the love and concern between the brothers.April 30, 2019Format: Kindle EditionI’ve read every book in the Davey & Derek Junior Detectives series and enjoyed each one. The Case of the Mystery of the Bells is my favorite so far. As with all of Janice Spina’s children’s books, this book teaches children positive values. The twins are always respectful to others and use good manners. One of the things that stood out for me in book 6 is when Davey had a bad dream, Derek jumped right in and offered his brother reassurance and then fixed him a cup of hot cocoa to calm him down. They always have each other’s back and are friends as much as twin brothers.
The boys Great Aunt Gigi, as we learn from earlier books, has special powers that Laura, Davey and Derek’s mother has inherited to some degree, but Davey and Derek to a much greater degree. The boys are learning how to handle these powers in a positive way and never misuse them. Aunt Gigi is their tutor in these mystical matters.
The characters are depicted in a way that makes them believable, including their powers. I especially love reading about Aunt Gigi. I can picture her greeting the children and inviting them in while bestowing her love upon them as she provides wonderful snacks and mystical experiences.
In Book 6 of the series we are introduced to Aunt Gigi’s twin sister Auriana and various other relatives from the realm of magic.
If you have middle grade children, I highly recommend this and any of the other books in the series, as well as those in the new Abby & Holly series. I can’t say enough about Janice Spina and her books.
As a Beta reader for Janice Spina, I was given an ARC by the author to read and comment back to her. I have voluntarily reviewed this book without compensation. The thoughts presented in this review are my honest evaluation of the book.

Did you know that reading is good for your health and that of your children. When a person reads his/her brain sparks alive with creativity, memory improves, an all over good feeling chases away the blues and all your troubles. You escape to a different place and time.

According to a research on Overall, the data showed that participants who read a book for just 30-minutes per week reported greater overall life happiness, satisfaction, and social connectedness.

Thank you so much for stopping by to read this post. If you and your children haven’t read any of this series it’s time to check it out and find out what everyone is talking about. You will be hooked and have a fun time reading this summer. If you love these books I would be honored to hear from you and be delighted to receive any reviews.


Blessings & Hugs!
