Publisher's Summary

Hannah and Tamar are looking forward to spending Thanksgiving break with their grandparents. On the long ride to Vermont, the sisters are quick to offer assistance when a fellow passenger - a girl in her late teens - is hassled by a rough-looking young man. Grateful as she may be for their help, Gwen is in no hurry to make friends, not even as she thrusts a mysterious package into Tamar’s hand and disappears in the Rutland train station. Puzzled by her behavior, Hannah and Tamar set out to locate Gwen and unravel the secret of the mysterious package.

Fans of Nancy Drew will enjoy this mystery.

For a short story, it's nice.

My reading preferences include massive, multi-book series. That said, this story was nice and short. It has a young adult vibe, and it's well written and well narrated. The characters are likeable and relatable. It's certainly something a parent wouldn't mind their young teenager reading. It's nice to not be assaulted by F-bombs all the time.

Fun mystery story!

The Mysterious Package is a nice short mystery story and start of a new series by Christa Nardi and Cassidy Salem - both of whom are accomplished writers on their own. Teen sisters on a train trip encounter a girl being harassed. She thrusts a package at the sisters and disappears. They work to solve the mystery of the girl and the package. I enjoyed the story, the characters and their interactions with each other and their grandparents. Julie McCarthy did a great job with the narration and in creating the voices for the younger and older characters. I received a free copy of the audiobook and this is my unbiased review.

What's in the package?!

My daughters and I love listening to audiobooks on our long drive to and from school, and we had a blast with this story. It's entertaining, mysterious, and made us giggle more than once (especially the grandparents, haha!). Definitely recommend - don't miss out :-)

Very Enjoyable!

If you enjoy a good cozy Mystery, then this one won't let you down! This book was a pleasure to listen to. The story was very well written & kept me interested & wanting to know what was in the package! The narrator, Julie McCarthy did a superb job. I would like to thank the author, Christa Nardi for allowing me the pleasure of listening to her audiobook at no cost in exchange for my unbiased review. I look forward to listening to more books written by Christa as well as books narrated by Julie.

Interesting Cozy Mystery!

This is the first novella in the Hannah and Tamar Mystery series. The characters are great, and I love to follow them in this adventure. This short story is well written and interesting. The plot is well-crafted. I like the family ties in this story. Julie McCarthy did a good job with the narration. I enjoyed it. I am looking forward to listening to the second book in the series.

Whose the package owner?

The Mystery Package. A Hannh and Tamara Mystery, Book 1 by Christa Nardi and Cassidy Salem.

Hanna and Tamara were on the traing going to their grandparents house for a family reunion when a girl they helped to get out from a young man shoved a package in Tamaras hands and left the train. So when they got home to their grand parents home, they spent the days looking for the girl to give her back the package.

This has been a really fun book to listen to. I liked the way this book developed, how the characters were presented and the easy going vibe it gives.

I think this audiobook is going to be interesting to young teens and can be considered a cozy book for them.

Who owns the package?

The Mysterious Package is Book 1 in A Hannah and Tamar Mystery by Christa Nardi and Cassidy Salem. I thought this mystery was so enjoyable. Hannah and Tamar are going by train to visit their grandparents. Gwen pushes a package into Tamra's hands and runs away. The sisters try to discover what is in the package and who does it belong too? I thought the characters were good and I enjoyed the mystery. I was able to listen to the audio book in one setting. I think that this story will be interesting to younger teens and adults. I am looking forward to book 2. Julie McCarthy does an amazing job as narrator. She was able to express the teen girls in a younger voice while aging her voice for the adults.

Decent, quick mystery for younger listeners

While I did enjoy the Mysterious Package to some extent, I think it's more suitable for younger listeners (think younger teens). It's a very lighthearted mystery about a package that is thrust into Tamar's hands but the girls are puzzled as to who it is for, what are the contents etc.
I actually kind of like that it's a light mystery - not everything has to be about violence, after all - so it's definitely suitable for young and emerging detectives, puzzle solvers or mystery lovers.

A Delightful Mystery

This mystery was charming and as the blurb stated very reminiscent of the Nancy Drew mysteries that I read in my youth. I enjoyed it and I recommend it to others who enjoy this genre. Julie McCarthy's narration was good and fit the story well. I was given a free copy of the audiobook and I have voluntarily left this review.

Excellent Light Read.

This is a very entertaining short listen, 2 girl amateur sleuths, ably assisted by their grandfather investigate a mysterious package handed to one of them by a stranger on a train while they are travelling home for Thanksgiving. It is well written and well paced, the characters are mostly likeable and well defined. The story is interesting enough to keep you listening in one sitting to the very end. Julie McCarthy is a very good narrator bringing each character to life. I look forward to listening to more of Christa Nardi's work in the future.
I was kindly given a promo copy of this book by the author and leave this voluntary and honest review.

Good light YA mystery

A good YA mystery with echoes of Nancy Drew. Well written and narrated. The story follows Hannah and Tamara as they investigate a package. The story is written for a young adult audience but can be enjoyed by all ages. I liked it and I am 57. I liked then characters and their relationships to each other. The narration is excellent. I received a complimentary copy from the author and am leaving a honest voluntary review
