Welcome to book tour for Walnut Street: Phantom Rider by Sherrill Joseph. Read on for more info and a chance to enter a fantastic giveaway!
Objects of value have been disappearing from the Mayfield family’s rural California horse ranch. The Botanic Hill Detectives—Moki Kalani, Rani Kumar, and twins Lanny and Lexi Wyatt—are hired to come for a week to investigate.
Legend has it somewhere on the Mayfields’ forty-acre property is a long-lost gold mine. It was supposedly staked by thirteen-year-old Ben Mayfield’s five-time great-grandfather, “Papa” Mayfield, in 1875.
Adding to the excitement, a nervous Ben reveals a frightening secret to the detectives. At the ranch, he alone has seen a threatening black-clad figure on horseback whom he calls the Phantom Rider. Who is this mysterious person? Is he responsible for the thefts? Where is the lost gold mine? And what’s going on in the nearby, snake-infested ghost town of Rainbow Flats? The four intrepid detectives aim to find out.

Walnut Street: Phantom Rider by Sherrill Joseph is another great addition to this middle grade detective series. Now that I’ve read these books, I’m going to introduce my niece and nephew to them. They are the perfect age for this endearing, clean, and fun mystery!
But this isn’t just for kids! As an adult, I absolutely enjoyed this. There’s historical facts to allow the reader to learn something new while enjoying the adventure of this story as well.
The theme of getting back up when you fall down is an important lessen for everyone. I love the positivity and life lessons. The characters are excellent and I really enjoyed the mystery plot as well. Overall, great read! Check it out!
