National Parks Mysteries #12 Buried Alive and #13 Night of the Black Bear
National Geographic is mentioned on page 40.
This is a very suspenseful book. I greatly enjoyed it.
In National Parks Mysteries #13, Night of the Black Bear, the Landons visit Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Olivia has been asked to investigate several bear attacks. Normally bears do not attack park visitors, so Olivia must find out what has gone wrong.
This is the only book in the series in which the Landons do not have a foster child. Instead, Jack and Ashley's new acquaintances, Yonah and Merle, provide the conflict that usually occurs with the foster children.
This is a very good book.
This series is very consistent from beginning to end. All books were written by the same writing team, and all feature the same premise. I found that the national park settings enhanced the stories. The bits of history included in each book were always interesting and never dragged down the plot. All around, this is a very enjoyable series.
