The Adventure Continues!

by Love this series!

This is the 5th book in the Harwood Mysteries, and I do believe it is my favorite. This book continues the story of Xan, Lucy, and many other memorable characters that readers have grown to adore. This book has more historical elements than the previous books making it all the more fascinating. And the tensions in Xan’s life, as he ages, are quite interesting. This series is a fan favorite for young Catholic readers. But I’m pretty sure I’m not the only adult who loves these books as well.
