4* A Stairway To Danger by Ben Woodard @BensWoodard #ReviewShare #YA #Mystery

A Stairway To Danger (A Shakertown Adventure)A Stairway To Danger by Ben Woodard
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

My first impression was - This is an enjoyable mystery book that reminds me a lot of the Hardy Boys and Enid Blyton's Famous Five or Secret Seven. The mystery starts quickly and the author's effort at keeping the setting consistent with the time period made the mystery even better.

As I got to the middle, I felt - The author did a good job with character development. The dialogue was also well suited for each character. The plot kept me guessing and I wasn't sure if I wanted the mystery to be solved because then the book would be over.

As I neared the end, I thought - This is a good clean mystery, suspense any teenager would enjoy. I started reading adventure books when I was 10 so in my opinion, children who have stronger vocabulary will definitely be able to keep up with the story.

My final impression and recommendations - Plot is well thought out. Characters are interesting most of the time. The ending although predictable was able to tie up the rest of the story. Highly recommended.
