Review:Case of the Missing Deed by Ellen Schwartz

It was amazing how all the peices of the puzzle fit together.  It was exciting to see who the bad guys were.  If the kids would find all the clues and put them together. Case of Missing Deed was a book I did not want to put down. I enjoyed how the grandkids worried about their grandma and tried to make a difference.
Tantalus mining company wanted to put a mine an ore found on their island.  They wanted to buy their Grandparents home. They also said," If you don't sell and have proof of the deed their land goes back to goverment. Grandpa did not trust saftey boxes in banks and loved puzzles. He was fighting cancer so he hid clues  to where something was. The two families came each summer and spent time with their Grandparents but this year was different Grandpa had died and Grandma was so afraid she would loose their home she taken to her bed and was really skinny.
Grandma always loved to cook so the children thought if they asked her to cook somthing that would get her out of bed. That plan did not work so the next plan was to cook her favorite dish.
While they looked for her reciepes they found Pesto was Grandma's but their was a sentence written in Grandpa handwriting that made no sense. Well she would not eat any of it. But kids did not give in they kept trying to interest Grandma in food and kept finding clues Grandpa had left all over the island.
I would read more stories by Ellen Schwartz I was entertained reading Case of the Missing Deed. I was given this ebook to read in exchange of honest review.
