Princess Caroline of Basset Hound Kingdom is left in charge when her parents leave for a conference. She had hoped things would be simple, but an unexpected disturbance, an unsettling one, threatens to ruin her growing excitement about the upcoming ball. Strange things are happening all over the kingdom, things are going missing, and it’s all happening to people close to the princess. Is she the ultimate target? Has someone from her past resurfaced to wreak havoc in her life? Accompanied by her best friends, twins Willow and Daisy, the three make an awesome sleuthing team. But is there someone close to the princess at the palace who is leaking valuable information to the enemy? Who can the princess trust?
Anne Fifield’s early chapter book, Princess Caroline's Adventures Book 5: A Case of Unfinished Business, continues in the series of Princess Caroline and her sleuthing adventures in the Basset Hound Kingdom. Told in simple language so early readers can enjoy using their growing reading skills, and accompanied by black and white sketches, the plot follows Princess Caroline’s first exposure to addressing the community members. She is presented with growing concern over these unexplained happenings and the need to take action before things escalate. The princess and her two friends have solved mysteries before and, although the community members are seeking advice and direction as to what they should do, the princess takes matters into her own hands to solve the mystery, all while preparing for the upcoming formal ball. There are a lot of mysteries swirling around the palace, mysteries that even cast doubt on her friends – can she still trust them? With building tension, good descriptive narrative, and compelling dialogue, this fast-paced doggy mystery is a thrill to read. I especially enjoyed the dog-friendly remarks like Willow’s comment to Princess Caroline: “You’re a pawsome speaker.” Another great Princess Caroline read.
