Right after 13-year-old sleuth Skylar Robbins solved The Mystery of the Hidden Jewels, a new mystery tapped her on the shoulder. Three years ago, wealthy heiress Xandra Collins disappeared without a trace, leaving her Santa Monica mansion abandoned. Three years later, Skylar’s parents bought it. Xandra had left just one mind-bending clue to her disappearance behind: a secret message written in code.

Once Skylar finally decoded that message, she was in for a world of danger. Teaming up with the smartest, cutest boy in middle school, Skylar and Daniel follow Xandra Collins’s clues, trying to determine what had become of the missing heiress. They ultimately discover a hidden box containing the key to the whole mystery.

Here’s what a mom said last week on Amazon, after reading Shadow Hills to her five children: 5.0 out of 5 stars. A Book that assists in lessons, communication, and building memories for our family! November 25, 2013
Just finished reading Skylar Robbins: The Mystery of Shadow Hills to my 5 children, by Carrie Cross. I love that there was inspiration to do activities with the family. We took the time to make amulets – or necklaces from rocks we searched for. We are planning some fun art projects too. I also love that the book took a turn into a positive lesson that I would want to teach my kids anyway. We were able to stop after reading the book and discuss what we learned about friendship and deciphering what a true friend is or is not. My children learned something about following fads as well. All wonderful lessons that I as a mother often wonder how I will be able to reach my children and teach in a way that they would “get”. This way we were able to do it together as a family all while building our own communications skills.
This book is rated 5 stars by me and the kids 🙂 Thank you Carrie! We are looking forward to reading your future adventures!!!
