Love being back at Nocturne Falls. Okay, this story was a real surprise. I’ve seen the old show Gargoyles (not everything) and this take on gargoyles and their history with the fae is a great take. It was a good read and seeing characters from the first books appearing is awesome. I wondered how the story would go when I realized the main heroes and I wasn’t disappointed.

Love being back at Nocturne Falls. Such a fun place to be. I read the first book maybe seven times. It was great getting to know the Sheriff and his match plus a ton of surprises. I would love to live in a town that is Halloween all year round with real monsters.

Rating: 4 Dragon Paws 4

This book is perfect for teens and who are into popular songs, teenage talk, horses, and growing up. This one is one long ride so get ready to read for a couple of nights for sure. It makes you feel young and you learn lots of new words.

I recommend this book to teens who think are they are invisible. There’s a great lesson to be learned from the characters – when you find your right crowd, things fall into place. Good luck to teens!

That is my favorite line from the book. It’s a slow read but really engaging. The author is a wiz when it comes to descriptions of places. Even though I guessed about the bad guy, it was a thrill to see how it all came together. If I say any more about the characters, I may give some spoilers so I’ll close my mouth. The title is perfect and connects to both main characters on a real level. A great read and totally worth the time.

Nutmeg Street: Egyptian Secrets Cover Reveal @MysteryAuthor7 @RRBookTours1 #Mystery #MG #MiddleGrade


A fantastic cover for an exciting upcoming debut novel by author, Sherrill Joseph! Read more about Nutmeg Street: Egyptian Secrets below! Such a cool cover. Love it!


Nutmeg Street: Egyptian Secrets (A Botanic Hill Detectives Mysteries #1)

Expected Publication Date: February 1st, 2020

Genre: MG/ Middle Grade/ Mystery (Ages 9 – 12)

World-famous Egyptologist Dr. Winston Thornsley died suddenly two months ago in disgrace. His widow, Ida Thornsley, remains convinced her husband was falsely accused of stealing an ancient burial urn he discovered in Egypt last summer, but local and federal law enforcement officers are stumped.

Mrs. Thornsley, desperate for answers, calls in her thirteen-year-old neighbors, the Botanic Hill Detectives—twins Lanny and Lexi Wyatt, Moki Kalani, and Rani Kumar. Their exciting mission? To find the urn and its real thief, bring the criminal to justice, and exonerate Dr. Thornsley so his spotless reputation can be restored.

A roomful of venomous snakes, the poisoned Egyptian pond, and Dragon Pit Man are just a few of the tests awaiting the four tech-savvy teenagers. As the detectives begin to unravel the sinister plot, the mystery takes a dangerous turn. Answers are at their fingertips—if they can only convince their parents to let them solve the case.

Sneak Peek

“Here we go again. An aftershock! I’ve been afraid this would happen,” said Dr. Kurtz. She rapidly surveyed the room full of terrariums. “And one of my assistants just called to say he’s found a somewhat hidden but large crack from this morning’s tremor on one of our venomous snake enclosure’s glass panes. It’s a major emergency. Come out with me quickly boys—now! I have to attend to this immediately,” she shouted behind her, as she grabbed her tool bag, yanked open the heavy door, and fled outside and down the breezeway to the enclosure.

Unfortunately, Moki and Lanny weren’t as fast as Dr. Kurtz. The door banged shut in their surprised faces and locked. They were trapped in a windowless room.

As if that weren’t bad enough, the power failed simultaneously, and the room went pitch black. Both boys froze, helplessly surrounded by three walls of venomous snakes they could still hear but no longer see.

Egyptian Secrets, in paperback and eBook, will be available for purchase on Amazon, February 1, 2020!


About the Author


Sherrill Joseph’s debut novel, Nutmeg Street: Egyptian Secrets, had been inside her head for decades. The mystery genre took hold of her as a fifth grader when she discovered Nancy Drew and Phyllis A. Whitney mysteries. Years later, it still hasn’t let go.

After graduating Phi Beta Kappa and summa cum laude with a bachelor’s degree in English literature and a master’s in education, Sherrill spent the next thirty-five years as a K-12 literacy teacher. When she retired from teaching in 2013, the Botanic Hill Detectives and their mysteries finally sprang to life.

Forever inspired by her beautiful students in the San Diego public schools, the author has peopled and themed the Botanic Hill Detectives mysteries with children of various abilities, cultures, and interests. She strongly believes that embracing diversity is the key to a better world.

Sherrill is a native San Diegan where she lives in a ninety-year-old house in a historic neighborhood with her bichon frisé-poodle mix, Jimmy Lambchop. In addition to her dog, the city of San Diego, reading and writing, the author loves her daughter, son-in-law, and granddaughter. She must also include dark chocolate, popcorn, old movies, staircases, the color purple, and daisies. She is a member of SCBWI and the Authors’ Guild and promises many more adventures with the squad to come.

Rating: 5 Dragon Paws 5-paws

This is the 2nd book about the Heath Cousins which falls under light middle grade fiction genre, where we meet old and new characters. It was great to see that the cousins kept their new friendships and were able to go on another magical adventure. I really want to have Addie’s powers. ^_^ Very useful. It’s a quick read and I recommend it to kids. I bet they would want to read about the many more adventures that the cousins get into. My favorite character is the wolf. The author has great imagination and the necessary language to share the adventures.

Rating: 5 Dragon Paws 5-paws

“Because you’re free.” Are very powerful words and make one think about their life.

Steamy chapter with the biggest cliffhanger yet. Evil author that she is.

I’d say this series will be good for 18+.
