Disappearance at Hangman’s Bluff: A Felony Bay Mystery
Abbey Force and her best friend Bea are relieved that Abbey’s father has awakened, and when a friend’s prized hunting dog is kidnapped, they seize the chance to solve a new mystery. The dog is not the only thing that has gone missing; an armored car and a truck carrying gas have also been stolen. Abbey and Bea realize the people who stole the truck are the same people who stole the dog, but they have no idea what their motives could be. Then they uncover a murder, and the plot thickens. As a tropical storm approaches and the situation intensifies, Bea and Abbey must use their wits and their spunk to save the dog, the money, and the day.
As with the first book, I enjoyed the pluck and frankness of the girls and how they can save themselves and others. They can do things, like change tires, shoot guns, and ride ponies, or lock down a barn for a storm, or kayak, or kill a snake – all things that they do. I liked the way the author presented the issue of slavery between the two friends, and how it affected them. This book was light, bouncy, and fun.
