5 Star Review From Theodocia McLean (Book Marketing Global Network):

Annie Tillery Mysteries book two Girl with Pencil, Drawing is a spectacular read for students and young adults of all ages. Each book in the Annie Tiller Mystery Series is unique and stands alone with no need to read in a particular sequence.

The story line in ‘Girl with Pencil, Drawing’ by Author Linda Maria Frank draws the young reader into an adventure where young Annie Tillery goes for her first art lesson at a prestigious Art Gallery. With youthful exuberance and an eagerness to advance her drawing skills Annie arrives early. When she enters the studio, she overhears a heated argument between two people who turn out to be her Art Instructor Francesca Gabrielli and the Art Gallery Director John DiCristiani.

Annie’s empathy for others and her sleuth personally draws her into a murder mystery when John DiCristiani turns up dead and Francesca Gabrielli is the prime suspect, Annie enlists the help of her Aunt Jill who is a NYPD Detective to help clear her new-found friend and art mentor’s name.

With strong characters, flowing dialog and layers of mystery, soon everyone is caught up in a real who-dun-it that involves a long list of suspects and hidden clues. Twists and turns with all the dangers that come into play when an International Art Fraud has been perpetrated.

I invite you to go beyond this headline: “Manhattan Business-Man Found Slain in Chelsea. John DiCristiani, a wealthy business man, whose financial interests reached as far as Hong Kong and Istanbul, was found shot to death in his posh apartment overlooking the Hudson River. Mr. DiCristiani’s body was found by an employee from his Soho gallery. The police questioned the employee, Ms. Francesca Gabrielli, at headquarters, but subsequently released her. Police would only confide that the murder weapon was found at the scene and that all other leads were being investigated. Mr. DiCristiani is survived by a son, Mark, twenty-five, a law student at New York University.”

Learn the ins and out of the art world that include how scientists’ tests for authenticity in original paintings by world renown artist like Renoir and the lucrative forgeries that make this underworld as treacherous as any international mob association.

Follow the clues, wait for the DNA evidence and sift through the ashes left by an arsonist. Inspire a young reader to discover the innate detective skills of Annie Tillery who is fast becoming the next Nancy Drew. This series should be placed on our schools’ summer reading list.

Secrets In The Fairy Chimneys (Book Three)
by Linda Maria Frank

Amateur sleuth Annie Tillery has been warned to stay away from Nevshehir, Turkey, where she is heading to meet her boyfriend, Ty Egan, and Cedric Zeeks, Ty’s best friend. Intent on helping the two excavate an archeological site where they hope to link human remains to the first African ancestors, Annie does her best to shakes her foreboding feelings as her plane lands in Istanbul and she prepares to embark on her next adventure.

But when a stranger claims he is there to pick her up and then disappears once he sees Ty, Annie is immediately thrown back into worry mode—especially after Ty tells her there is unexplained tension surrounding the dig and she receives a threatening note at the hotel. Still, as the three head to Nevshehir, Annie is buoyed by the excitement surrounding ancient Turkey and the possibility of uncovering secrets. The dig is plagued by accidents and theft, however, and the three friends, assisted by the head archeologist’s twins, must search the ancient city of Istanbul and the caves of fantastic Cappadocia to find who is sabotaging their work.

In this young adult thriller, detective Annie Tillery must once again walk on a dangerous path in an attempt to unravel a complicated mystery and solve the secrets in the fairy chimneys.

5 Star Review From Theodocia McLean (Book Marketing Global Network):

Indiana Jones meets Nancy Drew with the skills and precision of CSI.

Annie Tillery Mysteries book three ‘Secrets In The Fairy Chimneys’ can be summed up as Indiana Jones meets Nancy Drew with the skills and precision of CSI. A mystery unfolds amidst a mix of ancient history and modern innovation, in an ageless Eastern country where time moves at a camel’s pace.

Dedicated research by author Linda Maria Frank leaves no stone unturned while great description text transports the reader to the streets of Turkey with it mosques and minarets, towers and modern buildings. One of my favorite quotes from the book is “Water droplets plunked into the pool from the vaulted ceiling. After the heat of the bazaar and the street chase, it was deliciously cool. Ornate columns with carved capitals supported the ceiling. The bases were decorated with animal and human figures. There were a few visitors, but the enormity of the space muffled their conversations.”

Strong characters with great dialog bring us to dusty archeological site in one of the oldest towns in human history called Catalhoyuk. Nothing can explain it better than this quote: “We were in a valley of shapes I couldn’t believe were not made by humans, humans with a fabulous imagination. Conical formations called fairy chimneys in various sizes spread away from us in every direction. The color of bleached bones, they sat majestically among the gray-green brush and white clay-like soil. The air shimmered from the heat. I could smell the odor of clay mixed with a faint herbal scent that must have come from the brush.”

Cosponsors from Vermont University are looking for a DNA connection between residents of Catalhoyuk and our original nomadic ancestors in Africa. Annie Tillery and her team go to work excavating this archeological site, with all the inherit dangers and a mystery brings out the detective in Annie.

From the spell of a Ouija board to a magical balloon ride in the sky nothing is lost as this time and space makes all their senses come alive with amazing black and white graphics that bring the main characters to life.

Students and young adults of all ages will enjoy Annie Tillery Mysteries. Although a series each book is unique and stands alone with no need to read in a particular sequence.

The Mystery Of The Lost Avenger (Book Four)
by Linda Maria Frank

The wreckage of a World War II plane is found in the mountains of Appalachia. It mysteriously crashed in 1943 on its way to a naval base. Inside the plane is a note, written by Annie Tillery’s great-grandmother, Charlotte, who was in love with a fighter pilot. Young Charlotte tested the planes and flew them to naval bases; her fiancé flew the planes in battle.

While investigating the crash site, NCIS finds the note in the plane, which they trace to Charlotte and then to her surviving family members, Annie and her mother Carol. The mystery begins. Why did the plane crash, and what does Charlotte’s note mean? Annie and her mother decide to dig into Great-Grandmothers past by way of the aged family attic.

There, they find love letters written by Charlotte and her Navy pilot fiancé. There is a code to be broken in those letters and The Mystery of the Lost Avenger to be solved. As they explore, Annie suspects Charlotte’s ghost is reaching out to tell her something, but what? She enlists the help of her boyfriend, newly licensed pilot Ty Egan, but Annie feels she may be the key to her great-grandmothers top-secret life.

5 Star Review From Theodocia McLean (Book Marketing Global Network):

Good news for all Annie Tillery Mystery Followers. The Mystery Of The Lost Avenger (book 4) is finally here. This book educates young minds using this fictional mystery that involves NCIS investigating the crash site of a World War II plane.

Turns out the pilot was Annie Tillery’s great-grandmother Charlotte who was a test pilot for Grumman and actually flew in battle. Annie, her mother Carol are intrigued by Charlotte’s note and decide to dig through the old family attic to see what they can find out about this mysterious family member. What they discover in the attic only adds to the mystery and soon Annie suspects that Charlotte’s ghost is reaching out to them from beyond the grave with an important message.

Annie’s decides to get her boyfriend Ty Egan who happens to be a pilot involved. Here is their conversation.

“Ty, you won’t believe what Mom has been telling me about a mystery concerning my great-grandmother. Mom, this is your story, and maybe Ty can see something we don’t. Can you fill him in on the details, so far? I’m just hearing this story for the first time, too.”

“Well, let me start with . . .” She shuffled the papers in her lap. “Here’s the letter we received from the Department of the Navy. And here’s a copy of a note we found in the plane. The note is written on some sort of a company form with and identification number on it. The number belonged to Charlotte, my grandmother.”

“I also have a letter from the Naval Crime Investigation Service about the condition of the plane where they found the note, and the pilot they found in the wreckage. There are skeletonized remains of a person whose identity they are trying to confirm. They know who flew the plane when it went missing, but they must confirm that it is that person. It is a woman.”

Mom added a new thought, “You know, it’s ironic. Charlotte did die in a plane crash many years later. She continued to fly recreationally after the war. When I went to Maryland to see if there was any record of her time at Grumman, I found these letters in the house where Charlotte spent her last years.”

Students and young adults of all ages will enjoy The Mystery Of The Lost Avenger. Although a series each book is unique and stands alone with no need to read in a particular sequence.

Review by Julie Petitbon: For The Mystery of the Lost Avenger (February 27, 2020). Rating: 4 Out Of 4 Stars

The Mystery of the Lost Avenger is the fourth book in Linda Frank’s Annie Tillery Mystery series. The story begins when Annie’s mother receives a letter from the military about her deceased grandmother, Charlotte Wheeler, who was a WASP (Women’s Airforce Service Pilot) during World War II. When they recently recovered a plane that crashed in 1943, the military also found a note penned by Charlotte.

Annie and her mother are instantly intrigued. They know that Charlotte built and flew military planes during the war, but they don’t know much else. Annie and her mother slowly unravel Charlotte’s story with the help of Annie’s boyfriend. However, the more they learn, the more questions they have.

What caused the plane to crash, and how did Charlotte’s letter end up on it? Was Charlotte involved in the crash? Did Charlotte uncover a nefarious scheme at the base? A bundle of old letters, a Latin book, a secret code, and a helpful attic ghost are the keys to solving the case.

The story switches between Annie in the present and Charlotte in 1943. I like the way that the author transitions from the present to the past. It is as though, the more Annie uncovers of her great-grandmother’s courageous story, the more she learns about herself and her similarities to her ancestor.

I also like that these two strong, smart, and independent women are the focus of the story. Annie is a well-developed protagonist. Curious and optimistic, she is preparing to move away to college. She has a good relationship with her father and aunt but not with her mother. Annie wrestles with feelings of abandonment but still tries to mend her relationship with her mother. Throughout the book, she is inquisitive and determined to find the truth, much like her great-grandmother. Charlotte risks her life to uncover a deadly saboteur. She sends coded letters to her boyfriend at great risk to herself. Even after a brutal assault, Charlotte continues her investigation. She and Annie show perseverance and resilience and are great role models for younger readers.

The Mystery of the Lost Avenger is a quick-paced story with a generally optimistic and tight tone. However, the novel also addresses heavy topics like, addiction, feelings of abandonment, and healing. Annie’s mother is a recovering alcoholic who was absent for much of Annie’s childhood. Their relationship realistically fluctuates between awkward tolerance and enthusiastic acceptance. Including this element to the story adds meaningful depth and dimension to the plot and the characters.

I rate this book 4 out of 4 stars. It is a wonderful mystery with dynamic characters and an interesting plot. It also includes a sweet and supportive romance. The story is void of vulgarity and sexuality and is appropriate for all readers who like chapter books. Though the target audience is tweens and young teens, I think older teens and adults will also appreciate the story, the historical references, and the underlying themes.

Review by Emily-Jane Hills Orford: Rating: 4 Stars

Annie and her mother, Carol, are looking into a family mystery. Annie’s great-grandmother, Charlotte, was a WASP during the Second World War. Charlotte was also a bit of an amateur sleuth, just like her great-granddaughter, and it was her sleuthing into a potential saboteur that interwove into the present-day mystery when NCIS starts researching a recently discovered wreck from a plane that went missing in 1943. A mysterious note discovered in the wreckage is believed to have been written by Charlotte. With an old house and an attic full of trunks containing precious letters, diaries, photographs, newspaper clippings, and a secret code, there’s a lot of material to go through to solve the mystery behind the note and Charlotte herself. And, then there’s the ghost.

Linda Maria Frank’s young adult mystery novel, The Mystery of the Lost Avenger, is the fourth book in the Annie Tillery Mystery series. Full of clues and codes and ghosts, with a little touch of romance, the novel follows a compelling plot of sleuthing not unlike the popular Nancy Drew series. The story is told mostly through dialogue, which is well used to give the reader a sense of place, events and, of course, the characters themselves which are well developed. The mystery is well laid out to entice the reader to want to learn more not just about the mystery, but also about the WASP (Women Airforce Service Pilots) and other little-known details about World War II on the home front. The story is an exciting combination of mystery, history, romance, and a ghost.

Review by Liz Konkel: Rating: 5 Stars

The Mystery of the Lost Avenger by Linda Maria Frank is a delightful adventure in the Annie Tillery Mystery series. A World War II wreckage unearths the discovery of love letters between a test pilot named Charlotte and her fiancé, which pulls Annie Tillery into uncovering her family history. Charlotte is Annie’s great-grandmother and once Annie discovers the letters are coded, she can’t resist diving into the mystery of Charlotte’s life. With the help of her mother Carol and her boyfriend, they unravel a shocking secret that shines a light on the exciting life of her great-grandmother and allows her to learn about the women of World War II that worked on and test flew planes.

The mystery is centered on World War II and Annie’s family history. Linda Maria Frank brings to life an intriguing mystery that is lighthearted, emotional, and connects Annie with her family’s past. Annie’s relationships provide different elements to the story as she was primarily raised by her former NYPD detective aunt, who filled the void of mom and dad while also acting as the inspiration for her sleuthing. Her relationship with her parents is more background in her life with her father working out of the country and her mother a recovering addict. Woven throughout are flashbacks that unveil Charlotte’s experiences with the planes and show the events that led to the wreck and the coded letters. The letters are the biggest mystery to solve as Charlotte and her fiancé wrote to each other using code, which gives it a fun Nancy Drew flair. The story has a ghostly presence throughout that’s subtle and gives a physical connection directly to the past. The Mystery of the Lost Avenger is a charming mystery that is great for all ages and for those that love the classics of Nancy Drew and Trixie Belden.

Review By K.C. Finn: The Mystery of the Lost Avenger is a work of mystery fiction written for young adult readers by author Linda Maria Frank. Written as the fourth short novel in the Annie Tillery Mystery series, this book is intended for readers at the younger end of the teen spectrum as well as middle-grade readers. Combining elements of historical mystery, ghost stories, romance, and family drama, this engaging novel sees protagonist Annie discover the truth of her great-grandmother Charlotte, who served as a WASP during the Second World War. So begins an intriguing mystery of missing planes and repairing family ties along the way.

Author Linda Maria Frank has pitched this story at just the right level of detail and involvement so as not to overwhelm her target audience but has also left all of the juicy clues and historical flavor in place to give her mystery novel a deep intrigue to explore. Annie is a charming protagonist with lots of pep, and one whom younger readers can aspire to as she navigates not only the adventure of the tale but a new romance with boyfriend Ty and the effects of dealing with her mother’s newfound sobriety. What results is a deeply heartfelt tale that celebrates women and their inner strength from many different time periods and perspectives. Overall, I would definitely recommend The Mystery of the Lost Avenger for MG and YA readers, and indeed any reader seeking a new young investigative hero to follow.

A young detective volunteering at an archeological dig in turkey embarks on another adventure where she must unravel an ancient mystery and solve the secrets in the fairy chimneys. Amateur sleuth Annie Tillery has been warned to stay away from Nevshehir, Turkey, where she is heading to meet her boyfriend, Ty Egan, and Cedric Zeeks, Ty’s best friend.

Intent on helping the two excavate an archeological site where they hope to link human remains to the first African ancestors, Annie does her best to shake her foreboding feelings as her plane lands in Istanbul and she prepares to embark on her next adventure .But when a stranger claims he is there to pick her up and then disappears once he sees Ty, Annie is immediately thrown back into worry mode—especially after Ty tells her there is unexplained tension surrounding the dig and she receives a threatening note at the hotel.

Message From Linda Maria Frank: Hello, fellow mystery lovers. As a teacher of forensic science for almost 20 years, I decided to create mysteries around the science I found most interesting. I also wanted to create a smart, edgy, young female detective to solve my cases. The result was Annie Tillery. I like to call my books “Nancy Drew meets CSI”. My books capture, not only my love of mystery and science, but those things I found most exciting in life; sailing, falling in love, and my fascination with New York City.

Currently, I am living on Long Island and working hard to promote my books.

The third Annie Tillery mystery, Secrets in the Fairy Chimneys, revolves around another topic I find fascinating, and that is archaeology. It takes place in Turkey. This story is packed with heart stopping page turning drama.

The latest book, The Mystery of the Lost Avenger, investigates a cold case involving Annie’s great grandmother who was a test pilot for Grumman Aviation during WWII. Go back in time to solve an unexplained plane crash involving sabotage and great grandma, Charlotte Wheeler and her fighter pilot fiancé.

Stay tuned for more thrilling and dangerous adventures for Annie and that oh-so-sexy Ty.
