New Reviews of New MG/PT/YA Book – Abby & Holly Series Book 4: The Hidden Stairway!

Be prepared for a new adventure involving the cousins, Abby & Holly in Book 4 The Hidden Stairway. Abby and Holly travel to the past to solve a mystery. Girls and boys will love this mystery and be held in suspense until the satisfying ending. I dedicated this book to my granddaughter, Leah, and my step-granddaughter, Laura.

I love writing for this age group. It makes me feel like a kid again! When I write these stories I write as a pantser – meaning, I write by the seat of my pants. I never know what is going to happen next. The characters drive the story forward and control it until I rein them in. The ending is always a surprise to me. It’s like I am reading it along with other readers. It is such a thrill and nerve-wracking at the same time.

I hope your middle-graders, preteens, and young adults will enjoy this series. Here is a link to all my books. My books are also available on Barnes & Noble.


Join the cousins, Abby and Holly, as they search for clues about who placed an urn up in their attic with the remains of a young girl who lived a century ago. Their old Victorian holds many secrets and the girls are determined to solve this mystery with the help of two ghost friends, Felicity and Minerva, who inhabit their home.

As the girls are searching for clues in their basement they discover a hidden stairway. Upon entering the stairway they find themselves unexpectedly catapulted back in time to a century ago. Will they be able to return with the answers to the mystery? If not, who will help them get back? Or, will they be forever lost in time?

Here is the new review on Amazon: I am thrilled to receive this wonderful review of my newest book in the Abby & Holly Series.

helle Clements James5.0 out of 5 stars A riveting adventure for Abby and HollyReviewed in the United States on February 15, 2020Format: Kindle EditionAbby and Holly are cousins who have special powers, they can see and speak to ghosts, and in this book, they find they can travel back in time with the reassurance that should anything go wrong, they will get help from their ghost friends, Felicity and Minerva. This opens an exciting new adventure for the girls, though it is quite worrisome for their mothers.
Once again, Janice Spina has created a riveting adventure for the cousins. I couldn’t put it down and I’m sure middle-grade readers will get wrapped up in the story as much as I did. As with all of Spina’s books, there will be no objectionable language and there is always a life lesson – to be respectful to others, to be kind and considerate, to recognize and accept that there are differences in all of us. To parents, grandparents, and teachers – I recommend this be read aloud by children so you can have a lively discussion about the story and the lessons in ABBY & HOLLY SERIES, BOOK 4 – THE HIDDEN STAIRWAY. This is positively a 5-star book.

I received a copy of this book from the author for an unbiased review.
