Mystery in Mayan Mexico by Marcia Wells
Fans of the Bluestem nominated series Eddie Red will be excited to hear there is another installment with Eddie and his best friend Jonah set in Mexico. Eddie's mother is attending a two week conference and has brought the family plus Jonah along (lucky ducks!). They meet Julia, the daugher of a tour guide and the chief of police's daughter, and they become friends. A robbery happens in the hotel where they are staying and Eddie's dad becomes a suspect. Eddie uses his photographic memory to try to help solve the case along with help from Jonah and Julia. Will Eddie manage to find the real thief and clear his father's name?
I'm really liking this series. Eddie is a cool kid and Jonah cracks me up with his ADHD and OCD moments. I even like Eddie's parents who are a bit nerdy and quirky. It's a good action packed story that might peak some interest in the Mayan gods. Pick it up and read it!
