A delightful story about a girl who was found as a baby on a makeshift raft after a hurricane and raised by a man, who crashed his car and lost him memory during that same storm, and his friend/girlfriend/partner. The three of them run the only cafe in their tiny southern town, and Mo (the girl) is determined to find the mother who lost her all those years ago. But when a murder turns the tiny town upside down, she and her best friend, Dale, turn their detective skills toward solving mysteries other than parental ones.

This one's an absolute hoot. Great characters, excellent atmosphere and setting, and a great little mystery with nice twists along the way. Fantastic middle grade read. ( )

Children's mystery/middlegrade (some violence/scariness; harshest language used is "crud"). Murder mystery shakes up charming small Southern town. Quirky, layered, recommended! ( )

My son started reading this book at school. After reading a chapter or two, he told me I needed to read it, too. I'm glad I did! Three Times Lucky is a fun, heart-warming story about a girl searching for her long-lost mother and finding love, friendship, and family in the process.

Moses "Mo'' LoBeau lives in Tupelo Landing, NC. Her life has been an 11-year adventure. She was found as an infant in the middle of a hurricane by a man known only as The Colonel, who has been suffering from amnesia since that fateful storm. Mo has no idea who her mother is, and The Colonel has no memories of his life before the hurricane. Trying to find her "upstream'' mother who lost her during the storm, she puts notes in bottles and sends them floating down the river, hoping that someday her mother will answer.

Mo and her friend Dale decide to form a detective agency. When a local man is murdered, Dale and Mo are on the case, despite the real detectives getting testy about their "help.'' A hurricane hits the coast just as The Colonel's girlfriend is kidnapped by the murderer. The cast of characters from Tupelo Landing have to band together and brave the storm to save Miss Lana and solve the case.

This was such a fun book to read! It is book 1 in the Tupelo Landing series. The other two books are The Ghosts of Tupelo Landing and The Odds of Getting Even. My son and I both agree that we will be reading the other two books in this series! We definitely want to read about the further exploits of Mo and Dale!

Delightful original kids' story with Southern charm and quirky characters. Mo (short for Moses) drifted downstream in a hurricane when she was a baby. She was adopted by some newcomers to the town of Tupelo who also were displaced by the storm. When one of the small town residents is murdered, the investigation starts to unravel what little stability Mo has gained over the past 10 years. Her friendship with Dale (Earnhardt III -- named for the famous race car driver) is reminiscent of Scout and Dill in To Kill A Mockingbird and so is the kids' perspective of grown-up drama. ( )

This is a very fun middle-grade read. Turnage's writing is very skillful in making you feel right at home with the characters and the setting. In some ways, this is more enjoyable than the plot but I found myself going along with the plot because of the characters. And there's a nice life lesson woven in about learning to accept who you are and the family you have. Worth reading. ( )
