Changing Tides: A Gates Family Mystery by Catherine Hapka

In very similar fashion to the other Gates family mystery book, we follow the Gates family as they chase a historical mystery set in early America. This time, we are traveling back to the roots of America to the Jamestown colony. I am oddly fascinated with the Roanoke story and this book promised some allusions to it. Briefly mentioned as one of the clues, we focused much more on Jamestown than anything else. The clues were more easily solved in this book than in the second one, but still not something you could totally on your own.

Continuing to be enjoyable, I think these books will be great for my young history buffs. Maybe not the most meaty of books, but more educational than some of the other things they might pick up!
