Book Review- Rescuing Seneca Crane

I finally read Rescuing Seneca Crane by Susan Runholt.

From Goodreads:

When Kari and Lucas first see Seneca Crane up on stage, playing the piano in front of hundreds of people, they are in awe. She is beautiful. She is amazingly talented. And she is only thirteen! But then they get to know her at the Edinburgh Arts Festival and realize that she envies them. Soon the three are becoming friends . . .until Seneca disappears. There’s no stopping Kari and Lucas from jumping on the trail and tracking her down. Even when it leads to the heart of the Scottish highlands!

Following in the spine-tingling tracks of The Mystery of the Third Lucretia, Susan Runholt’s second book featuring super sleuths Kari and Lucas is just as smart and fast-paced as the first!

This was another great book in the Kari & Lucas Mystery series.  Once again, I think Kari and Lucas are great and strong female young adult characters and would be good role models for tweens.

I liked this story better than the first book, The Mystery of the Third Lucretia.  I liked having Seneca as a character.  She felt real and is another great female character.  I think this book would be more interesting to tweens since it deals with a kidnapping and a celebrity instead of a piece of art work.  And there were more great facts in the story, this one about Scotland.

I would definitely reccommend these books for tween girls who are looking for a good mystery.

I gave this book a rating of 3.5/5.
