Review: THE DOLLHOUSE MURDERS by Betty Ren Wright

It was just an old dollhouse. Hidden away in the attic-collecting dust. Amy didn't know that the dollhouse held a secret. A deadly secret that hadn't been talked about in years. And now, the dolls have decided that Amy should be the one to know the truth. The truth about the night of the murder...

My thoughts: Amy is a 12-year old girl going on 13, who has to constantly watch over her little sister everywhere she goes. Her little sister is this bratty, whiny child, and Amy hates having to drag her along. As an older sibling, I KNOW THE FEELING. The author did a great job rendering the tense problems between the two sisters.

In an attempt to get away from her sister, Amy runs off to her Aunt Clare’s, where she finds this dollhouse, an entity that intrigues and excites her. But then something strange is happening in the dollhouse. The pieces are….MOVING!

Suddenly, it’s up to Amy to solve the mystery being the dollhouse murder in this creepy and chilling tale. It’s a cute children’s mystery.
My rating: 4 stars
