Tiernay West, Professional Adventurer by Janni Lee Simner
Tiernay West's father writes books about a female adventurer who has fantastic experiences. He travels everywhere to bring his stories to life with facts about the area he's setting the story in. Tiernay would like to go with him but it's dangerous and she has school. So she decides to be an adventurer at home!
Cholla Bear Press and Net Galley allowed me to read this book for review (thank you). It has been published, so check with your local bookstore for a copy.
This is a middle grade read with lots of mystery and history in it. Who would have believed Tiernay's own ancestors had a treasure? Or that they would be traitors?
A civil war sword is stolen and then stolen back. A treasure waits to be discovered and another one is lost forever. Can Tierney figure out where the treasure is buried and what is the one that is lost forever?
The story includes some detective work, some spying, and some real danger. It's a good thing Teirnay isn't alone in her quest, she needs some help and moral support. She learns a few other things about life as she completes her quest. You don't need to go far away to find mystery and crime. Also, things that happened during the civil war might not be what they seem. There were two sides to the war and each camp did what they needed to for their cause...
