Book Description

Hot off cracking his first official case, Frankie Dupont is on the scene when his new teacher takes ill. The pint-sized detective suspects a classic case of sour grapes, but the evidence leads him to the one place he wouldn’t mind avoiding for the rest of his natural life.

Enderby Manor has a few more secrets up her sleeve, and as Frankie begins to unravel them, he uncovers a plot stinkier than a sardine sandwich.

In Book 2 of the Frankie Dupont Mysteries, Frankie will make some new friends, upset some old ones, and of course, there will be lemon meringue pie.


I received a free ecopy of this book for an honest review.

Frankie Dupont and the Lemon Festival Fiasco is the second Frankie Dupont book. These books are fun mysteries for children that are easy to read, and it is easy to follow the clues to solving the mysteries.

In Frankie Dupont and the Lemon Festival Fiasco, Frankie has to find out who poisoned a lemon pie and why. By following the clues, he uncovers so much more than just one poisoned pie!

There are some unique characters in this book but there aren’t quite as many as there were in Frankie Dupont and the Mystery in Enderby Manor. There are a few characters from Enderby Manor who return, such as Gerome the Gnome and the chef, Simon. Of course, Frankie is just as smart as ever and his cousin, Kat is helpful in solving the mystery, as is Amy, A friend of Kat’s who obviously has a crush on Frankie.

Children who like a mystery will definitely enjoy this book. It’s a fun read!
