Against their wishes, cousins Jacie Masters, (Punkin), and Hannah Roberts, (Boo), are thrown together for the summer at their grandparents’ Ghost Dancer Ranch. What starts as a very boring summer turns dangerous when they find themselves in the middle of an insidious plot to steal the ranch and turn it into a Casino. By clinging to their faith, and with the help of a guardian angel and Jack Wilson, a young Native American man who hopes to lead his people back to prosperity and power through the resurrection of the Ghost Dancer Religion, Punkin and Boo overcome all obstacles to solve the mystery and save the ranch. 

In the best tradition of Franklin W. Dixon's Hardy Boy Mysteries and Carolyn Keene's Nancy Drew Mystery Stories, comes The Adventures of Punkin and Boo, an exciting series of adventure/mystery stories for young children, tweens, and teens (adults will also enjoy them.) Featuring Hannah Roberts (Boo) and Jacie Masters (Punkin), these are the adventures of two teenage cousins who meet for the first time on a summer vacation and fall right into an on-going series of action-packed, page turning, "can't-put-em-down" books that will delight young readers and have them asking for more of The Adventures of Punkin and Boo.


I received a copy of this book from Patrick in exchange for an honest review He's also in progress with a sequel to The Amish Heiress so we have that to look forward to reading it. 
The Mystery of Ghost Dancer Ranch is the gripping story of two teenage cousins who are thrown together for the summer at their Grandparents' ranch in California. While exploring the old ranch, the girls stumble on a mystery that involves desperate crooks, the ghost of a long-dead Sioux War Chief, a young Native American man on a mission to save his tribe, and secret tunnels and caves left over from an old Spanish Mission. Throw in a guardian angel who protects the girls from some evil spirits that want to bring the story to a bad end, and you have The Mystery of Ghost Dancer Ranch, the first in a series of faith-filled mystery adventures for kids, featuring Punkin and Boo.
 I enjoyed reading and waiting to see what the girls would uncover and I also enjoyed learning about the Indians as well.
I thought that Patrick did a wonderful job in weaving his characters together and making them into a family who loves the Lord just as much as I do.
Patrick tells us that God loves everyone no matter the nationality you are.
I gave this a 5 star because I enjoyed a different read than what I'm used to.
Thank you Patrick for another wonderful read!
