Pauline Jones is confused why her boyfriend took off without telling a soul where he was going. But that isn’t all. Sam Whitaker is accused of stealing a valuable porcelain doll from the museum. His disappearance makes him look guilty, but Pauline is convinced he is innocent. When Amelia finds Sam, she realizes they need to prove his innocence. Where is the antique doll and who has taken it?

REVIEW:
A quick read!
And a fun whodunit!
Amelia always gets the most interesting cases, that take her all over the world. I was actually surprised that her and Rick didn't go to Germany in this book, but still, they traveled. I liked that the good guys were also bad guys in this one too. Most clean reads don't go there, so I was pleasantly surprised.
I was trying to guess who stole the doll and why, and turned out wrong. I like that though, I didn't see it coming, or rather, get the notion, while reading. I did feel the end a little rushed through. Almost like the resolution came from nowhere and was wrapped up just as fast. Still, there was enough mystery and intrigue that I really enjoyed this story. At least as much as the others in this series.
What a fun series this is. I like watching Amelia and Rick figure out cases while figuring out each other. Makes for great reading. I look forward to reading, Her Lost Love.

How Reading Helps Your Brain

The brain is one of the most complex biological structures that scientists and doctors have ever encountered. It is like a machine that runs non-stop that has the computing power to be able to make very complex decisions and experience unexplainable phenomena like emotions. The brain controls every other organ in the body so it is arguably the most important one. Unfortunately, probably due to its brilliance, it is a fairly vulnerable structure that can and does degrade over time.
Many experts agree that one of the best ways to maintain the health of the brain is to keep it active, just as you would with your muscles to keep them strong. There are also a number of nutrients that are very important to maintaining a healthy brain and preventing its decline. Reviewy is a website that contains information on a number of different supplements that can be used to boost brain power and protect it from degradation.
