From Modern History Press 

“I have fallen in love with Chrissy and Autumn and their continuing journey to health while finding themselves in the middle of a murder mystery adventure. My pre-teen daughter and I enjoyed reading The Dog-Eared Diary and then discussing the clues, plot twists, and characters.” ~ Antoinette Brickhaus, Maryland

Autumn and her shih tzu, Chrissy, are back for another mystery. You would not believe how Chrissy helps Autumn solve the mysteries in her home town. This mystery is surrounded by more than just the murders that happen. It has some family intrigue for Autumn who thought she was alone in the world since her parents’ car crash.
I am a huge dog lover so truly enjoy books that have pets in them. Chrissy is a cute little dog, whereas all of mine are rather large, and has been a support dog for Autumn during the eight months since her parents died. Autumn takes her everywhere with her. The two of them have a telepathic communication ability. It is the strangest thing but works well with them.
Autumn finds out she has more family than she could have imagined when the local philanthropist becomes ill and tells her his family secrets before he dies, namely that Autumn is family whereas his sister is adopted. While the adopted part is a secret Autumn will have to keep, the family part makes Autumn the recipient of a huge inheritance.
Pick up a copy of The Dog-Eared Diary and find out what diary it is and how Autumn ends up with more family in the end of the book than she had in the beginning. I have volunteered to share my review and all the opinions are 100% my own.
