In this one, Trixie and her friends discover an old woman who lives near a marsh. They befriend her and try to help her - she's destitute and frail. Eventually they discover that one of the old lady's antiques is worth a lot of money and will help save her from going to the old folk's home.There weren't too many interesting elements in this story; they tried to add a side plot about a spoiled violinist visiting Honey's family, but it basically went nowhere. She was kind of creepy though - she had a dog and she'd get mad if the kids didn't say hi to the dog. There's a weird side plot about a journalist with a vendetta against Trixie that never gets resolved. Maybe he'll show up in later books.

A trip to the nearby marsh leads to a chance encounter with the old woman who lives there. Can Trixie and her friends help Miss Rachel? The characters are still wonderful, but I really struggle with this book because there is no real mystery.

Trixe Belden and the Marshland Mystery is a good heart stopping book. All of the Trixe Belden series are really, really good!!
