Amelia Moore, the founder of the Moore Detective Agency, specializes in missing persons. Her cases have taken her to some very interesting places and put her in some dangerous situations, but she always solves the case. With the help of her partner, Rick Bonito, the business is flourishing. Dell Murphy has passed on and left a fortune to his nephew. He wants his nephew to continue his work at the orphanage in Mexico, but there is one problem. Neal Woods is missing! If Amelia and Rick can't find him soon, the fortune will be turned over to Dell's brother and sister who intend to close down "Uncle Dell's Orphanage." If that happens, where will the children go?
My Review: There are a couple of things that I really enjoy about this series. First of all, I love watching Amelia learn and grow, both as an individual and as a professional. Secondly, I love how each story takes us and immerses the reader in a new and unique setting. The locations are so vivid in my mind. Last of all, the mysteries and story lines are gentle, yet entertaining. There's nothing complicated or graphic about these situations, which is very refreshing.
Amelia and her partner, Rick, are off to Mexico to track down an heir who is missing. Events happen that lead them to believe that someone doesn't want this heir found. I love the way that Amelia and Rick go about finding clues and trying to solve things--it's so normal and natural, which makes it easy to visualize. I hope there are more adventures yet to come!
Content: moments of peril, but as mentioned, it's a very gentle read. Clean!
