GET A CLUE WITH THE CAMP CLUB GIRLS! Join Bailey and the Camp Club Girls as they embark on a series of clue-filled adventures and crack the case in this entertaining and action-packed 4-in-1 mystery collection.  

What's the meaning of the mysterious messages beneath shaggy sheep coats at the Curly Q ranch? 
The Camp Club Girls are determined to uncover the clues as they investigate a strange string of events. Will the girls discover the whereabouts of eccentric millionaire Marshall Gonzalez?

Why are wild elk running amok in Estes Park?
 During a stay at the historic Stanley Hotel, Bailey and Kate encounter out-of-control stampedes that put the townsfolk and tourists in danger. Will the Camp Club Girls uncover the reason behind the unusual elk behavior before someone gets hurt?

Are the rumors surrounding a valuable turquoise mine true?
When Bailey and Elizabeth travel to a Native American village in New Mexico to help out a distant cousin and her children in their pottery shop during the busy tourist season, mysterious rumors begin to stir. The Camp Club Girls have their suspicions about rightful ownership of the mine, but will they be able to prove it?

Who's responsible for the peril at Mermaid Park?
 When Bailey and Sydney are invited to spend part of the summer with Bailey’s grandmother in Florida, both girls are fascinated by the local attraction—Mermaid Park. When curious and frightening events begin to take place, will the Camp Club Girls solve the mystery and save the park before time runs out?

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the Author/NetGalley, Barbour Publishing and was under no obligation to post a review, positive or negative.

I am loving reading these collections of mystery stories for young readers! These books are so full of fun and adventure and page turning events. This particular volume of the Camp Club Girls series is by a new-to-me author, Linda Carlblom, and let me tell you that she did a terrific job! I loved every minute of this book.

This collection is Bailey’s adventures. I loved that Carlblom featured The Stanley Hotel in one of Bailey’s stories. As a long time fan of all things Ghost-y, my son and I loved watching the Ghost Hunters episode of The Stanley Hotel. Bailey’s adventure there brought back the memories of that for sure. I loved watching Bailey, Kate and Biscuit search for clues, and try to solve the mystery.

That’s just one of the four stories in this collection. Each one features Bailey and one of her camp friends, and they all seek to solve the mystery. Each story is filled with fun for readers of all ages, but are geared toward the ages of 8-14. These stories are beautifully written, and help to teach the rights and wrongs of growing up, along with messages from God.

If you have a young reader in your life, this is perfect for them. They will be captivated and taken on the adventurous fun that these girls have, and will likely want to be just like them. Once again, another modern day Nancy Drew collection for today’s kids. Definitely worthy of 4 stars and high recommendations from this fan!
