Review: Sir Alexander Jr is taking his American motor vehicle up to the top of the mountain to advertise it. He knows people are angry and don’t want him to do it, so when things get sabotaged it’s a good thing that Christie and Agatha managed to get there and help him solve who is doing all the sabotaging.
I loved that Christie really got to shine in this book, from figuring out who was causing all the damage to the vehicle, to getting to be in the car and sharing her love an knowledge with Sir Alexander about the vehicle. It was really adorable just how much she loved all of this adventure.
It was really fun, they had a long journey getting the car to the top of the mountain and no one believed it was going to happen. Some also didn’t want it to happen, getting in the way constantly. As a team again they managed to solve the crimes that were going on around them and have fun too.
I really love this series, Agatha and Christie are seriously adorable and so incredibly smart. They are so different to each other which helps them notice different things in each case. I really adore reading this series.
If you are looking for a fun historical mystery I highly highly recommend this series, they are so easy and exciting and fun to read. The illustrations throughout are absolutely stunning. You’ll have so much fun with Agatha and Christie.
