Ever since their family’s amulet disappeared, lots of bad luck has come the way of Nong May’s family. Jess and her family arrive for a visit and get lost in the Mystery of the Golden Temple – maybe they can bring some good luck back to the lovely orchid house.

Hott Review:

What I liked: “Mystery of the Golden Temple” is awesome! I loved how much I learned about the Thai language and people. There are tons of amazing facts and stories included while not feeling preachy or taking away from the mystery.
I can’t imagine anyone not enjoying this book, it’s so completely filled with amazingly vivid imagery that you feel like you’re in Thailand with the girls.
What I didn’t like: It ended a bit quickly.
