REVIEW: Three Times Lucky

Three Times Lucky
Author: Sheila Turnage

My son started reading this book at school. After reading a chapter or two, he told me I needed to read it, too. I'm glad I did! Three Times Lucky is a fun, heart-warming story about a girl searching for her long-lost mother and finding love, friendship, and family in the process.

Moses "Mo'' LoBeau lives in Tupelo Landing, NC. Her life has been an 11-year adventure. She was found as an infant in the middle of a hurricane by a man known only as The Colonel, who has been suffering from amnesia since that fateful storm. Mo has no idea who her mother is, and The Colonel has no memories of his life before the hurricane. Trying to find her "upstream'' mother who lost her during the storm, she puts notes in bottles and sends them floating down the river, hoping that someday her mother will answer.

Mo and her friend Dale decide to form a detective agency. When a local man is murdered, Dale and Mo are on the case, despite the real detectives getting testy about their "help.'' A hurricane hits the coast just as The Colonel's girlfriend is kidnapped by the murderer. The cast of characters from Tupelo Landing have to band together and brave the storm to save Miss Lana and solve the case.

This was such a fun book to read! It is book 1 in the Tupelo Landing series. The other two books are The Ghosts of Tupelo Landing and The Odds of Getting Even. My son and I both agree that we will be reading the other two books in this series! We definitely want to read about the further exploits of Mo and Dale!
