A New Review of Abby & Holly Series Book 3 Secrets of the Trunk!

I am excited to share this wonderful new review of Abby & Holly Series Book 3 Secrets of the Trunk! It is thrilling to receive new reviews. It feels like early Christmas gifts when I see one on Amazon or Barnes & Noble! Thank you, reviewers, for making my day! Thank you, Mystery Fran, for sharing your thoughts on my book! I am grateful and happy you enjoyed it.

Mystery “Fran”5.0 out of 5 starsThis is a great book for kids in middle grades (3-5)!September 17, 2019Format: Paperback I recently read Janice Spina’s newest book for middle grade readers, the Abby and Holly Series, Book 3: Secrets of the Trunk. I had not read the previous books, but was immediately engaged with this fun mystery involving cousins and BFFs Abby and Holly. This book has ghosts, an old trunk, secrets, and my favorite, a mystery for the girls to solve. The themes of friendship, respect, and caring are cleverly woven into the story. As a former teacher of reading, I heartily recommend this book to your middle grade children or students!


Join Abby and Holly in Book 3 as the cousins discover a new presence in their old Victorian while they are cleaning out the library of old books. They are not sure if this specter is benign or otherwise. This being leads them to the old trunk they discovered in Book 2 which holds many secrets and puzzles that they feel compelled to solve.They enlist the help of their ghost friend, Felicity, who inhabits their home. She is a benevolent entity that once lived in their house from a century ago. She watches over the girls and vows never to leave them unless they request her to do so.There will be surprises and ghostly visits that will keep readers enthralled as Abby and Holly work together to uncover the secrets of the trunk.

All these books carry life lessons for MG/PT/YA. They will enjoy reading as they learn to be kind, caring and respectful of parents, elders and each other, bullying is never tolerated or accepted, accept differences in others and always listen to your mother.

Here are all the books in this series. I am presently working on Book 4 which I hope to publish later in 2019. This is an award-winning series – 2 Pinnacle Book Achievement Awards and a Bronze Medal from Readers’ Favorite Book Awards!

Available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble!
