Felicity is spending the summer at Kings Creak Plantation, her grandfather's plantation. She meets a strange man named Mr. Haskall. Felicity soon finds out about a British attack, being planed against patriot plantations. Felicity is a patriot, which means bad news for her and her family. What will happen to Felicity and her family?

I think that Peril At King's Creek is a very good, suspenseful mystery. Mr Haskall is a very interesting character. Sometimes he seems like Felicity's friend, other times he doesn't. You will be on the edge of your seat up until the mystery is discovered. Felicity listens to her inner voice when something doesn't seem right.… (mais)

The mystery stories are a longer and more mature spinoff from the original books and feature the heroines solving mysteries in historical settings. Felicity is experiencing the beginnings of the American Revolution while staying at her family's plantation, and finds out that British soldiers are burning down nearby farms and stealing livestock. The story does a good job of showing the confusion of the time, with neighbors and family members on opposite sides of the conflict and loyalties pulled in both directions. This gives the characters a more realistic depth than a good vs. evil story with the British portrayed purely as villians, and presents a more accurate picture of the American Revolution. The text is slightly larger and widely spaced, which is a good transition for readers who are used to the shorter illustrated books, and the vocabulary is mostly faithful to the time setting, but more natural and intelligible for the age of its audience.… (mais)

A review by Blake: A very good book. The mystery was very exciting, I just couldn't put it down until it was finished. It was too suspenseful.

A review by Blake: This mystery really stumped me. It was really good though. At one point I thought they had the culprit cornered but they didn't. It was a big stumper because it had too many suspects. Overall it was a good book.
