    This book has been in my collection since 4th grade. Finally read it, and since I am way older now, the plot was predictable. But, this is def a great middle aged read!

    Definitely not my favorite book, but still a great easy read. I read majority of the book in one sitting! I will definitely read the others in the series!

    Hannah West in the bell town towerLinda Johns Iexile 5 star 176 pagesI liked reading the book because its easy to read so anyone can read it if they want. It's fun and easy to read so time goes by faster. At the same time it keeps the reader guessing about the mystery. I like the part when Hannah and her mom finds out that their friend Dorothy gets robbed; its where the mystery starts. In most conversations, it lacks humor. For example, the conversation between Hannah and her friend Jenna were talking about the mystery and I thought it was too serious. Fourth and fifth graders are able to read this book as it is appropriate level for them.

    Found my fun summer series; I already have these in the library, but haven't read them yet. Kid detective novels set in Seattle.Update: I read all four while visiting in Portland. None of the mystery plots were great, but they were fun, quick reads and she makes excellent use of her Seattle settings. (Hannah and her mother are professional housesitters and each book takes place in a new home in a different Seattle neighborhood, including one on Capitol Hill just a couple of blocks from my apartment.) Recommended for 3rd-6th graders.

    Hannah West and her mother would be homeless except for their job as house-sitters. In this book they're sitting and living in Belltown Towers, one of Seattle's posh addresses. Someone is stealing paintings but they all seem to have been done by the same woman. Hannah goes into overdrive to solve the crime. A cute mid-grade mystery that is well-written.

    Very cute tween mystery set in Seattle. Hannah, an adopted Chinese gal is temporarily house-sitting a place in the Belltown Towers with her single mom, Maggie. When art heists start happening all over the city, Hannah tries to fit the pieces together. Kind of a mix of Lulu Dark and Chasing Vermeer, great for girls who are on the cusp of teen lit.

    A fun middle grade/middle school mystery title and a good contemporary choice for Nancy Drew fans. Love that is set in Seattle. Note that in 2016 this title has been re-issued along with another Hannah West title as Hannah West: Sleuth in Training.

    A fairly decent tween book dealing with an art mystery in Seattle. I loved the references to places you walk by every day downtown (and was truly ecstatic when Kells (the most fabulous bar ever) was mentioned).

    Not deep or thought-provoking, but a nice read!

    Pretty good. The local angle helps propel this mystery, along with the convincingly realistic details of pre-teen life in the 2000 and somethings.

    My friend Linda wrote this series. Great young female character. A hip Nancy Drew who lives in Seattle.

    Fun who-done-it for younger middle-grade readers. Hannah is spunky and the setting around Seattle is especially fun to me.

    The character is very funny and independent. This was a detective story set in Seattle. I know Seattle well and it was fun to read about the places the main characters visits in Seattle.
