Summer of Suspense

Baker Family Adventures Series, Book 1

The silvery moonlight shone through the small window as Abby pushed the makeshift key into the lock and turned it. There was a sliding sound as the lock slowly slid back, and a quiet thud as it hit home. Abby, her heart beating wildly, gently pushed the heavy door and it swung open. The two girls stepped gingerly out of the inky blackness and into the silvery light of the world outside.

When Phil, Abby, Andy, and Tom Baker hear that their cousin Millie will visit their farm for the summer, little do they imagine what a dreary time they will have with the snobbish girl. But when Millie disappears, life quickly becomes anything but dreary.

The silvery moonlight shone through the small window as Abby pushed the makeshift key into the lock and turned it. There was a sliding sound as the lock slowly slid back, and a quiet thud as it hit home. Abby, her heart beating wildly, gently pushed the heavy door and it swung open. The two girls stepped gingerly out of the inky blackness and into the silvery light of the world outside.

What starts out as a summer of chores and horse-riding on the farm turns into a cross-country adventure, as the Bakers find themselves matching wits with a notorious jewelry thief who pulls them into her web. Aided by a seasoned detective, the Bakers confront numerous dangers in their search for Millie, all while attempting to foil the plot of a major crime ring — making it a summer of suspense that they will never forget.
