Reviews of Amanda Lester and the Pink Sugar Conspiracy by Paula Berinstein

Amanda Lester and the Pink Sugar Conspiracy

The first volume in a delightful series of detective stories that are part Tom Swift (or Robert Heinlein) and part Nancy Drew (Hardy Boys)

Amanda Lester lives in California and is an aspiring young filmmaker; however, her parents have a different idea. Her Father (a lawyer) and her Mother (a successful mystery author) have decided to send her to the Legatum Continuatum, a school for the descendants of great detectives. Amanda is horrified because her “famous” ancestor is the G. Lastrade of Sherlock Holmes fame. Lastrade was not a great detective and owed most of his success to Holmes’ allowing him to take the credit for solving crimes.

Amanda is moved to the public (private in the US) school, begins to make friends, and discovers that she has a nack for investigation. As the students begin observing things around them, they notice something is not as it should be. Can they discover the source of the pink sugar conspiracy?

As many of the classic detective characters are still under copyright the author has created a bunch of new “old” detectives for her cast of characters ancestral lines. The book is a fun adventure for the readers.
