Booklist Reviews 2018 January #1

Eleven-year-old Elizabeth isn't surprised to learn that her aunt and uncle are going on Christmas vacation without her, but she's shocked that they're sending her to a fancy resort while they're away. Solitary and bookish, Elizabeth sets off for Winterhouse for what turns out to be a holiday filled with intrigue, magic, surprise, and—perhaps best of all—friendship. She is quickly made to feel at home in the grand old hotel by the warm welcome of Norbridge Falls (Winterhouse's eccentric proprietor), Miss Leona (resident librarian), and her new friend Freddy. A creepy couple and a legend of a hidden book attract Elizabeth's attention, fueling her desire to solve the Winterhouse's long-standing mystery. Guterson's debut is a natural fit for readers with a penchant for puzzles and wordplay in the vein of the Mr. Lemoncello's Library series and Pseudonymous Bosch. Characterization is light, but the dual mysteries of the hidden book and Elizabeth's family history will keep the pages turning. Though it doesn't break new ground, this is a solid choice for middle-grade gumshoes. Copyright 2018 Booklist Reviews.

Spending Christmas away from her dour aunt and uncle at a Catskills-style grand hotel, eleven-year-old Elizabeth makes a new friend, Freddy, who is a fellow puzzle fanatic. But Elizabeth and Freddy's puzzle-solving attempts uncover a mystery that may threaten the entire hotel. Word ladders and codes abound in this magic-tinged winter holiday mind-boggler, which ends with a possible new family for Elizabeth. Copyright 2018 Horn Book Guide Reviews.
