Trixie Belden and the Gatehouse Mystery - Julie Campbell

So after all my big talk about reading foreign language books this summer, this is the first book I review in June? I'm even shaking my head at myself over this one.

Evidently summer 2016 is going to be a bit more tiresome than usual for some reason known only to the heat and humidity. I found myself needing a quicker, easier read, and this book has been on my TBR pile for a while now, so I decided to just read it. It's a vintage copy I found on my beloved Library Sale shelves, in perfect condition, as if it had been preserved especially for me to add to my small vintage children's book collection.

As usual, the story is simple and straightforward, the "mystery" is just enough to keep one guessing a little, and the setting is an idealized smaller city/town with idealized families and etc. It fit the bill for me when I needed something light. I'm hoping I can now turn to other books and recharge my summer reading.
