Magnin, Joyce. Harriet Beamer Strikes Gold. Grand Rapids, MI: Zondervan. 2013.
Harriet Beamer recently moved across the country to live with her son and daughter-in-law. Harriet’s son eagerly suggested she find friends in the area to help her become comfortable; however, Harriet found more than friends. Harriet befriends a young girl and her father – yet, she also takes on so much more than she ever bargained for. Suddenly, Harriet is swept away in an unforgettable journey that all starts with a gold mine…
A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS:
Harriet Beamer is such an adorable character, the readers will be left wishing they could meet her in person. Of course, Harriet’s trusty side-kick, the Basset Hound Humphrey, seals the deal (just check out the darling cover). When taken as a fast, light read, the novel is filled with humor, adventure and just a touch of mystery; however, it can become choppy at times within the dialogs exchanged. Overall, the novel will leave the reader hoping for another book in the series. (This particular novel is not the first in the series.) Definitely a story to enjoy this summer yet.
