Box in the Woods
Box in the Woods | Maureen Johnson
After solving the case of Truly Devious, Stevie Bell investigates her first mystery outside of Ellingham Academy in this spine-chilling and hilarious stand-alone mystery from New York Times bestselling author Maureen Johnson.Amateur sleuth Stevie Bell needs a good murder. After catching a killer at her high school, she's back at home for a normal (that means boring) summer.But then she gets a message from the owner of Sunny Pines, formerly known as Camp Wonder Falls--the site of the notorious unsolved case, the Box in the Woods Murders. Back in 1978, four camp counselors were killed in the woods outside of the town of Barlow Corners, their bodies left in a gruesome display. The new owner offers Stevie an invitation: Come to the camp and help him work on a true crime podcast about the case.Stevie agrees, as long as she can bring along her friends from Ellingham Academy. Nothing sounds better than a summer spent together, investigating old murders. But something evil still lurks in Barlow Corners. When Stevie opens the lid on this long-dormant case, she gets much more than she bargained for. The Box in the Woods will make room for more victims. This time, Stevie may not make it out alive.

I‘m sure there will come a time when I get tired of this YA mystery series, but that time is not with this fourth book. I found the stand-alone incredibly satisfying taking the teenage detective Stevie digging into a 1970s murder at a summer camp. It‘s just a fun read all around! Plus it had me listening to Stevie Nicks and researching the fascinating, macabre work of Francis Glessner Lee.

everfree7 Yeah, I love this series, too! 2w

Today‘s Kashmiri recipe is noon chai, or pink salty tea. Mine didn‘t come out remotely pink, but it IS salty. Tasty, too.

Today‘s novel is THE BOX IN THE WOODS, Maureen Johnson‘s fourth Stevie Bell mystery. I like it as of 73%, but not as much as I liked the first three. Still, I‘m glad Johnson returned to these characters and I hope there‘ll be a fifth book.

A good story but I didn‘t love this one as much as the rest of the series sadly, still intriguing though. 3.75/5 Read for the #Bookoplathon

I enjoyed listening to The Box in the Woods by Maureen Johnson. I was able to guess the individual who was responsible for certain events that happen within this audiobook, yet the reason why they did it was unexpected.

Teen mystery. Book 4 in the Truly Devious series. Completely new and different mystery than the 1st 3 books. Stevie solves the 1978 murder of 4 teens at a summer camp.

Linsy I liked that she was able to give us a continuation that completely stands on its own! 1y
Amie @Linsy yes I was happy that it continued beyond the initial trilogy. I think there might be a 5th book coming, but I'm not sure. 1y
