Two if by Tea in Boston
Two if by Tea in Boston is Mary Morgan’s seventh mystery book for children. “Scavenger hunt. What’s a scavenger hunt?” asked Ben and Bekka when their father told them they had an assignment to walk The Freedom Trail in Boston National Historical Park as undercover detectives. Join the twins as they hunt for mysterious clues, uncover a plot hanging in the stairway of an old brick church, and encounter danger like they never have before.
