In the third volume of the Skylar Robbins mystery series, Skylar and her new heartthrob Daniel try to discover what happened to the famous heiress, Xandra Collins. She disappeared mysteriously three years ago, without leaving a trace.

Or did she?

One mind-bending clue was left behind: a puzzling poem written in Xandra’s hidden diary, pointing to a clue hidden underneath the Santa Monica pier.

Skylar risks her life to hunt for this clue and figure out whether or not Xandra Collins is still alive.

And it was worth every dangerous second.

Skylar Robbins: The Mystery of the Missing Heiress will be available on Amazon in 2016. The first two Skylar Robbins mysteries are available now on Amazon.

White foam sprays and seagulls cry.

Bleached, white planks toast in the sun.

The children laugh and still I cry.

My life has come undone.

 

Family ties unravel fast.

Money burns our sordid past.

Jewels do tempt my nephews three;

Afraid of what will become of me.

 

Three in line to inherit mine:

Will Richard cook me a poison stew?

Will Herman prescribe a pill to kill?

Will Frederick make me laugh until I cry?

Until I die?

 

Beneath the pier is dark and deep.

Water cold and still I weep.

Secrets locked inside a box.

Seven rocks by seven rocks.

Skylar Robbins book 2: Synopsis

BoM 2014 December Skylar Robbins

A deserted mansion perches on a steep hillside, overlooking a rocky canyon. Tattered curtains hang behind broken windows, and a turret stretches toward the sky. Three years ago the wealthy owner disappeared suddenly, leaving behind a house full of secrets: A mysterious note, tantalizing clues, a hidden floor, one piece of a treasure map, and a missing fortune in diamonds.

Thirteen-year-old sleuth Skylar Robbins moves into the mansion with her parents and embarks on a new and dangerous mission. Armed with her detective kit, and with the support of her BFF Alexa and a team of secret agents, Skylar sets out to decipher the clues and find the diamonds. Can she outwit a gang of aggressive bikers and find the hidden jewels before they do? Or will the perils of middle school–like battling ruthless bully Emelyn Peters for the attention of class hottie Dustin Coles–get in her way?

The Mystery of the Hidden Jewels is available now on Amazon.

Agents: if you are not getting an Identikit email within a week, it is because you are emailing from an address that can not receive emails. I have had repeated requests from prospective agents and have replied to the address they emailed me from, and my return emails did not go through. Some schools, home computers, and libraries have blocks on their computers and can not receive incoming emails. This is for the students’ safety and I respect this!

Skylar responds to every Secret Agent request and fan letter. If you don’t get a response, it is because of your computer’s settings. Please ask your mom or dad to email me from an address I can reply to.

Happy sleuthing!

Love,
Skylar
