Publisher's Summary

Five orphans. Two sword-wielding vigilantes. One mansion. No rules.

April thought she had her happy ending. After all, she has her new house and new friends and new guardian. But she also has a very big new secret.

The kids of Winterborne House are the only ones who know that Gabriel Winterborne - famous billionaire and terrible cook - is really a sword-wielding vigilante.

What they don’t know is that he’s not the only one.

When a masked figure breaks in, looking for something - or someone - it’s clear that Gabriel has met his match, and now no one is safe. April and her friends will have to solve a decades-old mystery in order to hang on to the most important thing in the world: each other.

Perfect for kids and adults

This is an action-packed, emotional book geared toward readers aged 8-12, but it’s perfect for both children and adults. I absolutely loved it. There’s hidden passages, secret islands, sword-fights, mystery, teamwork, hope, and utter mayhem. It’s the second book of a series, and while I definitely recommend reading the first book, Winterborne Home for Vengeance and Valor, it’s not a requirement.

April is one of five orphans taken under the guardianship of the Winterborne Foundation and moved into the legendary mansion grounds by the sea. With a butler running the house and a caregiver managing the children’s educations and the finances, everything is perfect. Until the long lost heir returns and takes over.

The children love him, but Gabriel Winterborne has no idea how to run a household, educate children, or do any of the other things required by the department of child services. He also disappears, leaving five children unattended when their case manager shows up. April’s new family may be torn apart right when she’s finally find a real home. Can they evade child services, locate Gabriel, and contain the chaos before they lose everything they love?

Winterborne Home for Mayhem and Mystery is a delightful book, just like the first book of the series, and I’d love to see it turned into a movie or tv series. I hope there are more books to come.
