Review: The Mystery of the Gold Coins (Cam Jansen Mysteries #5)

User Review  - Melissa Namba - Goodreads

Another predictable one but at least the pictures are helpful for a reader to try to solve the crime on his or her own. Characters are consistent through the series. Luckily, no missing wallets in this one. Read full review
