    1. 5/28/16: A reread from 2008, I read a couple of friends' reviews and wondered if maybe I was too generous giving this one four stars. But I don't want to downgrade it to three. More like 3.5. I think I like it more than I thought, and more than most of my friends do. Yes, Trixie is pretty obnoxious in this one, but hey, she's 14. Yes, Miss Trask is a pod person in this one, but hey, she never gets any chance at romance in the series. She was probably just off her head. ;) I read this one because [...]

    2. The Bob-Whites are off againis time to England! I enjoy this book and getting to visit England vicariously through my favorite characters and friends. This book is rare in that only 4 of the Bob-Whites fly to England with Miss Trask, Honey's former governor and current manager of the Wheeler Estate. Typically, Jim, Mart, Honey, Brian, and Trixie are involved in every mystery.but in England their numbers are greatly reducedbut the adventures are still high stakes as the kids set out to solve Hone [...]

    3. I thought this Trixie book was fun, exciting, and kept you on the edge of your seat the whole time. Sure, it was kind of predictable, but seeing the Bob-Whites in London and exploring England was fun. I have to say it was VERY unrealistic, and the author got lazy when he/she only put four of the Bob-Whites on the trip, but I loved hearing all about England, and there were very rarely infodumps. Four stars out of five!

    4. First off, I want to know which ghost writer thought it would be a good idea to Miss Track intowhatever that was. Not cool. Also, at this point, why do the BWotG always doubt Trixie? C'mon guys. We all know she's right.This was interesting because Trixie, Honey, Jim, and Mart got to explore in England and we got to see the Jim/Mart friend dynamic that isn't really in Sleepyside.Recommended 9/10+ for scary situations.

    5. a HUGE and most dedicated fan of Trixie and her crew. This is odd, of course, because they were MEANT for teen and pre-teen girls, but I was a young boy that read everything he could get his hands on and when I first stumbled on my first TRIXIE BELDON book I was instantly hooked! I immediately sat about reading them all, as quickly as I could get my greedy little paws on them. Trixie is the star, or "lead" character, followed by Jim and Honey (who quickly became the love of my young life, I had [...]

    6. It's been a long time since I've read this, but picked it for a re-read because I'll be visiting the areas of England where this book is set. I do recall delving into Romeo and Juliet after reading it the first time around.Likes: The setting, some of the minor characters, supportive Mart - yes, still teasing but a lot more supportive of Trixie than some later books.Dislikes: The "Nobody likes us because we're American tourists" spiel. Suck it up because it's not always about you. When it is abou [...]

    7. A childhood favorite re-visited.Is the story as good as I remember? – YesWhat ages would I recommend it too? – Ten and up.Length? – Most of a day’s read.Characters? – Memorable, several characters.Setting? – Real world, pre - computer pre - air conditioning, pre - cell phone.Written approximately? – 1979.Does the story leave questions in the readers mind? – Ready to read more.Any issues the author (or a more recent publisher) should cover? Yes. A slight mention of the time frame [...]

    8. Trixie and part of the gang travel to England to trace Honey's family tree and learn about her recent inheritance. So why is Trixie seeing the same pickpocket everywhere they go? And is their guide trust worthy?I was never a big fan of this one, but rereading it as an adult has made me realize just how bad it is. The characters aren't themselves, especially Trixie. And the plot is weak with a very rushed climax. Still, some of the new supporting characters are fun and a few scenes make this one [...]

    9. For Christmas one year, my parents grabbed me the entire Trixie Belden set and I couldn't put them down. After I finished with them, they continued to purchase them as quickly as I could read them. Even with a learning disability, I devoured the books. I look back now and I find that Trixie Belden was much more age related to young girls, particularly to me, reading the books than Nancy Drew. There was something in these books that I found to be a greater escape than I did ND, too. I found that [...]

    10. In contrast to most Trixie's, this is one of my least favorites. When they go off somewhere, it always seems more like a history lesson. This one wasn't as much, but still some. The mystery was good, but disliked everything with Miss Trask. The end she reveals why she was like that, but it was quite annoying. She talked down to Trixie and it just didn't fit her character at all. Plus, only Trixie & Honey going made it for a time of missing the Bobwhites!

    11. This along with the Mystery in Arizona were my favorites in the series. Read this as a tween and i still remember them clearly!(Looks like my love of travel started early! ;)

    12. Trixie, Honey, Jim and Mart are in England researching Honey's mother's family history and the history of a family heirloom.

    13. This is my favorite of all the Trixie Belden books. Getting the gang out of their normal setting and into something a little more "exotic" makes for a fresh take on a long-running series.

    14. The stereotypical portrayal of British people in this book is hilarious, as is the use of the word "bloody" in a series where the kids are careful to say "gleeps!" or "cripes!" or "jeepers!".

    15. As a tween I lived vicariously through Trixie Belden and her many travels and adventures. I never seemed to be able to find any exciting mysteries in my school or suburban neighborhood.

    16. The story, for what it is, is well written; and it's got plenty of action. Despite being a "loud American" the four Bob Whites still make British friends. Miss Trask makes a friend, too.
