The most boring of the stories so far. Not sure if I'll continue to read the series. ( )

More of Aunt Jane's Nieces, here spending the summer at a country farm and sussing out a mystery. Once again, the plot isn't very complex but it is mostly carried along by enjoyment of the main characters. I was somewhat mystified by the watermelon incident near the end, which was both mean-spirited and odd, and the wrap up lacked a bit of something but I will definitely find the rest of the series.

Aunt Jane's Nieces is the title of a juvenile novel first published in 1906, written by L. Frank Baum under the pseudonym Edith Van Dyne. Since the book was the first in a series of novels designed for adolescent girls, its title was applied to the entire series of ten books, published between 1906 and 1918. The book and the series were designed to appeal to the same audience as Louisa May Alcott's Little Women and Little Men. This was expressly stipulated in Baum's contract with his publishers. The ten titles are: Aunt Jane's Nieces (1906), Aunt Jane's Nieces Abroad (1907), Aunt Jane's Nieces at Millville (1908), Aunt Jane's Nieces at Work (1909), Aunt Jane's Nieces in Society (1910), Aunt Jane's Nieces and Uncle John (1911), Aunt Jane's Nieces on Vacation (1912), Aunt Jane's Nieces on the Ranch (1913), Aunt Jane's Nieces Out West (1914) and Aunt Jane's Nieces in the Red Cross (1915).… (more)
