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.

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 older bullies and find the hidden jewels before they do? Or will the perils of middle school–like battling ruthless Emelyn Peters for the attention of class hottie Dustin Coles–get in her way?

As soon as Skylar gets to Malibu, mysterious things begin to happen. She discovers a hidden garden behind a rusted gate in Gwendolyn’s huge back yard. Her new friend Kat, who claims to be a witch, recognizes magical elements throughout the garden and declares it the perfect place to perform spells.

“We are going to grow gems.”

“Grow what?” There was no way I heard her right.

Kat’s eyes gleamed. “Gems. You know, rubies, emeralds, sapphires? Gems!”

Ignoring the rising tide, they sneak down to the beach at midnight and search three caves for magic seeds to plant in the abandoned garden. Practical Skylar didn’t believe in magic. Until their spells appear to be working.

Skylar Robbins: The Mystery of the Island Idol (Skylar Robbins mysteries Book 5)
by Carrie Cross
4.8 Stars (25 Reviews)
Genre: Children’s eBooks

I opened the slam book and started to read.
Bastiian is having a party next Friday night. Anyone welcome at 3 Palms at 10 is invited. Free food, no parents, and we’re playing My Secret Kiss. Who’s going?
And there was a list of names. Daniel Gannon’s was on it.
My Assistant Detective Alexa pointed at a spot three-quarters down the page. “Sky. A boy-girl party and Daniel’s going. Brendan and Dustin signed the list too. We have to go.”
“Alexa, what’s My Secret Kiss?”
She lowered her voice. “Everyone secretly draws names picking who they have to kiss. Then everyone rates the person they kissed. The bad kissers with the least points get eliminated.”
“No way.” My mind was racing. The disgusting possibilities were endless. Would I be forced to make out with boys I didn’t like, or guys I didn’t even know, just to act normal at a party? Was I crazy for even considering going?
My brain started to tick. I’d paid for some new gadgets with chores money, and I’d gotten others for Christmas. These filled out my detective kit nicely. My night vision goggles might come in handy. The Soundtrap would let us eavesdrop on conversations. Best of all was a canister of Invisi-powder. When you dusted it on your face and hands and wore black clothing, the non-metallic, gray-black powder let you blend into the shadows, so you were completely invisible.
“There is a way,” I said, smiling confidently. “We are going to go to that party. But nobody’s even going to know we’re there.”
Sneaking into the party sounded risky, and pretty scary. But it wasn’t until after it was over and the field trip began, that I really found out the true meaning of terror and danger.

Gwendolyn’s Revenge: A Skylar Robbins Fantasy Novella (Skylar Robbins mysteries Book 4)
by Carrie Cross
4.3 Stars (20 Reviews)
Genre: Children’s eBooks

An eighth-grade bully named Gwendolyn opened her witchcraft box and looked at the nest of hair she had stolen from her cousin Skylar Robbins’s brush. She planned to use the teen sleuth’s locks in a revenge spell: Maybe giving Skylar a giant patch of hairy warts. A year of horrendous dog breath. And loud, unstoppable farts whenever Skylar was around a cute boy! Unfortunately, Gwendolyn had skimmed the instructions, and missed a very important step.

With the help of a friendly wizard, Gwendolyn also performed a beautifying spell on herself. But she ignored the old wizard’s warning: “Don’t let your ego turn you nasty. Or the spell will slowly reverse. Or worse.”

By the time school started, Gwendolyn had turned pretty — on the outside. In English, a classmate began his presentation and his nerves got the best of him. After the first paragraph, he stumbled, stopped, and went silent. “I lost my place,” Rudy admitted, fumbling with his notes, and Gwendolyn laughed loudly.

The boy sitting next to her and one row up turned around and gaped at her. “Wow. Nasty,” he mumbled.

“And?” Gwendolyn snapped. Then she shouted, “Ouch!” grabbing her thigh as a splotch of hairy warts exploded painfully onto her skin. A stinky mist burst into the room.

“Ugh!” Ken King exclaimed suddenly, staring at Gwendolyn. “No way — are those turd farts coming out of you?”

“What are you talking about?” she retorted. “I’m not farting,” she said weakly. Gwendolyn did, in fact, feel particularly gassy.

“Or is that your breath?” Rock asked. He covered his nose and mouth and gagged. “It smells like — horrendous dog breath!”

What?! Gwen cupped her hand over her mouth, hoped no one was looking, and huffed hotly into her palm. Sniffed it and almost fell off her chair in disgust. OMG. She gasped. That smells disgusting. It does smell like horrendous dog breath!

Oh, no, she thought. This can’t be happening.

Gwendolyn’s Revenge is a fantasy novella that is a standalone read, and a mini-sequel to Skylar Robbins: The Mystery of Shadow Hills.

Grrrr Hot Sauce

I have a few regrets about my cleaning extravaganza yesterday. Besides the bad back right now, there is something that is occurring that is VERY annoying. I cleaned out the shelves in the refrigerator door. I ran them under hot water and got all the crusty gunk off. Now, every time I open the doors the stuff on the shelves slides all over the place, knocking each other around. I almost broke a hot sauce when I opened the door too fast. It’s stupid just how annoyed I am with this. Every time someones goes into the fridge I watch in silence as the threat of hot sauce crashing to the floor looms over me. Erg. Maybe I should tell them. Maybe I should move the hot sauce. But I like the hot sauce where it is in the fridge. If I move it, it will look out of place. I have thought about throwing the hot sauce out to solve the problem, but hubby really likes the hot sauce. Oh hot sauce! How you torment me.

Gobbelino London & a Scourge of Pleasantries (Gobbelino London, PI Book 1)
by Kim M. Watt
4.3 Stars (661 Reviews)
Genre: Fantasy | Humor & Satire

FREE for a limited time

“What’ve we got?”

“Tigers. Snakes. Alligators. Tears in the skin of the universe.” Susan shrugged. “I think I saw a kraken in the sink, too.”

Find a missing book. That was the job the woman in the Doc Martens gave us.

Easy money, right?

Only now it seems she’s actually an ancient, powerful sorcerer, and the book is a Book of Power that doesn’t want to be found.

It wants to tear reality apart at the seams, and it’ll use anyone it can to do it.

So now we’ve got one spectacularly displeased sorcerer, a hungry, still-missing book, a dentist with bad hygiene, and a neighbourhood having some reality issues to deal with.

Plus about a day before the book turns our world – and us – inside out.

We’ve totally got this.

I hope.

This is the first book in the Gobbelino London, PI urban fantasy series, centred around the adventures of a mercenary feline PI and his human sidekick. It contains snarky cats and other gods, many bad jokes and terrible puns, plus a large serving of mythological and real creatures behaving badly. It will appeal to anyone who likes their fantasy funny, modern, and filled with friendship rather than romance – and also to those who suspect their cat may be living a great and secret life when they’re not looking.

A Scourge of Pleasantries contains some violence, particularly toward furniture, but none of it is graphic. It contains no sex and only mild language. It does, however, contain blasphemy.
