Book Review:

25820644Once again Frankie Dupont is on the case. His dad has been put on a security case on a cruse ship. Frankie and his assistants are there to provide a cover story. There is an expensive chocolate sculpture and its recipe at risk and Mr. Dupont is set to guard against international thieves who have already stolen some of the world’s best chocolate recipes. In addition Frankie finds himself on the hunt for a missing person. He has to solve the mystery before the sculpture goes missing.

This is second adventure with 11 year old Frankie for me. I enjoyed this one a bit more than the last. Frankie and the girls make a great investigative team. They are up to their usual hi-jinks with fun detective gadgets and pure sleuthing power, all set on a luxury cruise liner headed to Antarctica. It is fun to connect with old friends, the wonderful quirky characters of Frankie’s world. Plus, we get to meet a few more. Not even the villains are boring in this series. Middle grade mystery lovers are sure to enjoy this book.

5 stars

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Goodreads Summary: Frankie Dupont seems to catch odd-ball cases in the most unlikely places. You would think he would be used to it by now.

When his next case lands him on a luxury cruise liner full of devious chocolatiers with ulterior motives, Frankie will be expected to solve the crime, even before it’s committed.

Although his mind is certainly up for the challenge, Frankie realises his stomach is yet to find its sea legs.
