Secrets at the Chocolate Mansion (Maggie Brooklyn Mystery Book 3)Originally osted on my blog Ciao BellaLeslie Margolis novels have lately been a mixed bag for me One Tough Chick was Most Definitely A Miss But definitely a miss but first few books in the Maggie Brooklyn series left me uite impressed And so I was willing to give her most recent novel and the third Maggie Brooklyn mystery a try Going in with lower expectations I m enjoyed Secrets at the Chocolate Mansion but that s not to say it was Sword Of The Spellbreaker perfect With a fewroblems That Were Hard To were hard to this novel was a solid read although I was really hoping for another outstanding middle grade mysteryMaggie has developed a reputation for not only her dog walking skills but also her knack for solving mysteries When her good friend Sonya s bakery runs into a multitude of Secrets Revealed problems Maggie isut on the case While the mysteries in this series are The Sugarspear Chronicles The Complete Collection predictable I love the variety of situations Maggie finds herself in My baking loving self makes it hard to turn down a book with a sweet shop involved The author clearly excels in developing a middle school environment due to everything from Maggie s home life to her interactions with friends I was completely immersed in the story However I have to uestion how everything works out in the end I don t want to give anything away but there are just too many coincidences for me to believe the solution to the mysteryMaggie is a strongrotagonist one who is both true to life and memorable Just as Margolis story is well crafted I found Maggie s The Body Snatchers A Real Alien Conspiracy personality to be realistically developed as well Her dialogue and actions only strengthen that idea there s no doubt in my mind that the author knows her audience I can t say the same for all of the secondary characters While I love Maggie s twin brother Finn who Iersonally think deserved time in the book other characters seem to have been last minute additions to the story and not in a good way Many unfortunately appear to be weirdly out of All The Devils Here Library Edition placeOn aersonal note one of the supporting characters a friend of Maggie shares that she has diabetes about halfway through the book As a Type One Diabetic I was surprised and happy To See That As see that as is a disease not commonly included in MG and YA books but further reading led me to disappointment If you are going to include such a life changing condition I would hope that it wouldn t be mentioned with a very minimal explanation and a confusing one at that This along with typos that could easily confuse a reader I sure was caused my enjoyment of the story to diminishOverall Secrets at the Chocolate Mansion.
