Mystery on Church Hill

The Virginia Mysteries Book 2

Brothers Sam and Derek have a knack for uncovering mystery and adventure. When they visit Richmond’s St. John’s Church for a reenactment of Patrick Henry’s famous liberty speech, they stumble upon a hidden piece of history. As the boys and their friends dig deeper, they find clues from America’s founding fathers and a secret plot to steal a treasure from our nation’s past. Join in the mystery as the search races from the cemeteries of Richmond to the streets of Colonial Williamsburg.

Available in hardcover, paperback, Kindle, and audio versions

My 3rd grader just finished Mystery on Church Hill & loved it! He wants to go see St. John’s Church & head to Williamsburg to sight see there too!  I had planned on donating the books to our school library, but he didn’t want to – his reply was ‘I want to save these for my kids to read!’

Where Mr. Smith shines is when he involves us in actual historic events…the places and people and the skullduggery that beleaguered the famous and infamous of the 18th Century grounds the book…the book is a terrific portal to introduce history to young readers in a captivating way.
