[BLOG TOUR] The Riddles of Hillgate (Z & C Mysteries #1) by Zoey & Claire Kane

Title: The Riddles of Hillgate
Author: Zoey Kane & Claire Kane
Series: Z & C Mysteries #1
Source: *Received in exchange for an honest review*

Zoey Kane is known around Riverside for making risky purchases. When her daughter Claire learns a most recent investment is eighty acres on the haunted side of town, she is simply flabbergasted. Amazement takes over the whole community, however, when an old mansion is discovered deep within trees. After the estate is turned into a popular hotel, no one could have expected just how risky this purchase would be.


The Hillgate mansion is full of mystery, history and wonder! As you trek across the eight acres of land, you will come across a wonder locked away from prying eyes and hidden under weeds and unwanted parasites, to reveal a lost antique that will change the community forever. I love the cover, how the mother and daughter are silhouetted adds great mystery and the moonlight showing how a lot of the dangers... begin at night!

Zo is known in the community for making risking purchases and most of the time, not selling them. Now, her purchases are something to laugh about with in the community, especially when she buys eight acres of muddy land, right next to a landfill site. But, who knew that beyond the hills there would be a lost mystery. As Zo and Claire attempt to bring this lost treasure back to life and reveal its secrets to all... there is something stopping them and a mystery to stop them in their tracks.

This is a quick read of which will have you wracking your brain to solve the mysteriously imprinted riddles into priceless treasures. I loved the way in which they transformed the mansion, and the way that when one crowd is scared away an opposite crowd comes bounding through the doors. But also the pure creeiness of the house and then in the attic... AHH! How could they have lived there after that. This just made it even more tragic concerning the early family, but also the motive of it! LOVED IT!

This book is full of mystery and suspense, but also shows how money can drive people apart and the wrong people in. You also get to see a strong and loving relationship between a mother and daughter, and their shared passion for history and the hidden mysteries.

I highly enjoyed this book and look forward to reading the next one in the series: Cruise to Murder.
And if you have a old, haunted house with an attic... please check it, NOW!

Dead Jed is Shaun of the Dead meets Diary of a Wimpy Kid. Jed's not your typical junior high geek. He is, to use the politically-correct term, cardiovascularly-challenged. And while his parents have attempted to shield him from the implications of being 'different' for as long as they could (Jed was 8 and at a friend's sister's birthday party when he blew his lips off onto the cake in front of everyone, finally prompting the “Big Talk” from his parents and an emergency SuperGlue repair by his dad), 7th grade at Pine Hollow Middle School as a target of Robbie the supreme school bully and his pack of moronic toadies is rapidly becoming unbearable.
From being stuffed in a filled trash can as “dead meat” and into a trophy case as the bully's “prize,” to literally having his hand pulled off in the boys' room (Jed's always l…

When Gia Montgomery's boyfriend, Bradley, dumps her in the parking lot of her high school prom, she has to think fast. After all, she'd been telling her friends about him for months now. This was supposed to be the night she proved he existed. So when she sees a cute guy waiting to pick up his sister, she enlists his help. The task is simple: be her fill-in boyfriend—two hours, zero commitment, a few white lies. After that, she can win back the real Bradley.
The problem is that days after prom, it's not the real Bradley she's thinking about, but the stand-in. The one whose name she doesn't even know. But tracking him down doesn't mean they're done faking a relationship. Gia owes him a favor and his sister intends to see that he collects: his ex-girlfriend's graduation party—three hours, zero commitment, a few white lies.
Just when Gia begins to wonder if she could turn h…
