{My thoughts} – Hilde and her sister Izzy pick up right where they’d left off in the previous book. They’d heard fire sirens and decided to follow them. The fire was an antique store that was well known in their area. The building was a loss and they were trying to figure out what started the fire.

The girls did some investigating and took many pictures. However, it wasn’t until they were looking at older pictures of the store, that they were able to figure out just what had caused the fire.

A lot of stuff takes place in case of an emergency such as a fire like is described within the pages of this book. I enjoyed reading this book and the lessons in which it teaches children. It shows children that you can make a difference while being safe at the same time. It also shows children that good investigating will lead you to the right answer and that it isn’t safe to assume you know what happened.

I think this is a great book and series for any child that is a fan of mystery. It’s also a great book and series for any child that likes to write stories about things going on in their lives.

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
