I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for my honest review.

Amanda in England: The Missing Novel is book three of the Amanda series by Darlene Foster. Written for middle grade readers it is a quick-paced easy read. 

Amanda is a curious adventurous twelve-year-old whose friend in England invited her to come for a visit. Having a love of travel she happily accepted Leah’s invitation.

From the time Amanda arrives things begin happening. One thing leads to another, and she finds herself involved in the mystery of a missing valuable book. Young readers will enjoy the antics and escapades of Amanda, Leah and two local kids they meet as they encounter a strange acting lady, run into trouble when two men chase them, and try to keep all the trouble they’re in from Leah’s parents. While following Amanda readers will also be learning a little about some of the sites and sights of England.

Darlene Foster has written four books in the Amanda series so far. If you want to read my review of her first book in the series, go to Amanda in Arabia: The Perfume Flask.

Thanks for reading, and … Creative Musings!  🙂

  1. Thanks for the wonderful review. I’m pleased you enjoyed Amanda’s adventure in England. Perhaps it made you wish to visit one day!


    • You’re welcome, Darlene. England does seem to be an interesting place to visit. I think I would especially enjoy visiting castles, museums, and – of course – old bookstores, but then I would have to also buy an extra suitcase or how would I ever get all my book purchases home? 🙂

  3. I loved Amanda in Arabia and need to read the other series. I have a great granddaughter who is just beginning to read on her own, so I’m going to introduce her to the first book. This one sounds like a fun adventure.
