Not much to figure out  Apr 27, 2008
My daughter is a Felicity fan, she's asked me to read the main series three times! We finished "Traitor in Williamsburg," which she enjoyed. We expected this book by the same author to be of similar quality but were disappointed.

Relative to "Traitor," there's much less action, and the villain was easy to spot, even for a five year old. The author seemed lazy, filling many paragraphs with irrelevant details which slowed the story significantly.
An enjoyable mystery for fans of the Felicity stories.  Mar 5, 2008
Eleven-year-old Felicity Merriman, her mother, and her younger siblings are spending the summer of 1776 at King's Creek, the plantation the family inherited from Felicity's grandfather. Felicity enjoys riding her beloved horse, Penny, exploring the woods with her siblings, and remembering the happy days spent there before Grandfather's death. She is also enjoying learning about the plants of the area from Mr. Haskall, a visitor at a neighboring plantation who is studying the plants of Virginia. However, Felicity fears the peace of King's Creek Plantation may be interrupted. There are rumors of British soldiers raiding Patriot plantations and stealing horses. And soon, Felicity begins to notice that Mr. Haskall's behavior is very suspicious. Could her new friend be a British spy?

This was an enjoyable historical mystery for young readers that will be most enjoyed by fans of the Felicity stories. The book is slightly longer then the regular American Girls books as well, which means it's perfect for readers beginning to outgrow those books but who sitll love the characters. However, the story also works as a stand alone book for those readers who haven't read other Felicity books but enjoy historical fiction set in Colonial times.
One of the most enjoyable additions to the 'American Girl' mysteries, that provides a lesson in history, as well as politics!  Feb 8, 2007
The year is 1776. Felicity "Lissie" Merriman is ecstatic to be spending the summer on her family's plantation in King's Creek, where she has the opportunity to ride her cherished horse, Penny, most everyday. However, the stifling June heat instantly leaves Felicity in discomfort, and wanting nothing more than to wade along the river to keep cool. But, alas, Felicity is a young lady, and is expected to accompany her mother to various dinners and teas, all of which leave her bored, and searching for excitement. When Felicity is introduced to a most interesting visitor of the Wentworth family, known as Mr. Haskall, however, her boredom at fancy dinners quickly diminishes. Mr. Haskall is unlike any adult that Felicity has ever met before. He is interested in answering Felicity's many questions, and loves to hear her opinions regarding a large amount of subjects. As a naturalist, and a nature lover, to boot, Mr. Haskall asks permission to search various plantation owners properties, in an attempt to record his findings, and make new discoveries. However, as Mr. Haskall's behavior becomes slightly strange, she begins to question his motives. After all, Felicity has been hearing a lot of news regarding British soldiers, and their penchant for burning down Patriot farms, and stealing the animals of Patriot's to teach these traitors a lesson. Felicity's family are Patriots, and she begins to wonder if something harsh will fall upon her own family. Something that could leave her without a home, and without Penny by her side. With this in mind, Felicity resolves to do a little snooping to learn the truth about the curious Mr. Haskall, and becomes determined to halt any destructive activity that may befall King's Creek or Penny. But when you're a young girl on your own, sometimes trying to stop something as lethal as the British can be more complicated than expected; and Felicity may not have the strength, or the know-how, to protect her family from danger before it's too late.

I remember reading the FELICITY series when I was much younger, and enjoying the tales very much. However, that enjoyment came back to me quickly, as I turned the pages in PERIL AT KING'S CREEK. The spirited nature Felicity always showcased in her previous tales comes alive in this latest addition to her life, illustrating just how fond of her family, home, friends, and animals she truly is. Her newfound friendship with her younger sister Nan is delightful to read about, as their constant bickering has stopped, showing just how much each of the girls has matured over the years. The character of Mr. Haskall was enjoyable to learn more about. His pleasure in nature really makes the reader feel a fondness for his character. However, his penchant for taking advantage of the people around him, by perusing their property whenever he'd like makes him a slightly sketchy character. The two sides of his personality really create a pleasant confusion for the reader, that makes it almost impossible to determine the truth regarding his motives. My only complaint is that Ben was hardly featured in this Felicity tale. However, it was not meant to be, as he is working in Williamsburg over the summer. Luckily, the few times he does appear are quite enjoyable, and the conversation between him and Felicity flows like water. One of the most enjoyable additions to the AMERICAN GIRL mysteries, that provides a lesson in history, as well as politics!

The Great Felicity Mystery!  Dec 2, 2006
Felicity is my favorite character in the American Girl Series. A story filled with suspense that gives you chills. I was thrilled to be able to read another Felicity book because I have read her first 6 books many, many times. It is set at the plantation rather than in Williamsburg and Penny, Felicity's favorite horse is in danger. A great book for girls who love reading about history and horses! The American Girl Mystery books are the first mystery books I have read and now I love that genre - Nancy Drew here I come!
