The Curse of Borage Doone

**** Kid's Meal
Although I enjoyed the first of the Merryweather Mysteries, I have to tell you that The Curse of Borage Doone is a far, far better tale. Sam Jones is once again with his grandmother, Gwladys  Merryweather while his parents pursue their passion for hiking vacations. Sam has matured and his magical abilities have grown. His wise grandmother acts foolishly in this tale, agreeing to go to Edinburgh as a guest on a cooking show - a prize given to her online for a contest she never entered. Sam, who is far more computer savvy, recognizes that this is quite odd but cannot convince her not to go, especially since her dearest classmate at witches' school, Lottie Borage-Doone and her husband live in Edinburgh, too.  Sadly, Lottie's health is fading quickly and painfully and Mother Merryweather's prize is a set up to imprison her by an enemy witch. Sam has been practicing his magic but does he have enough power to rescue his Grandmother, much less break the curse of Borage Doone? Read this delightful tale to find out!
