Item description for Mandie and the Long Goodbye (Mandie, Book 30) by Lois Gladys Leppard...
"Mandie books sometimes get a little scary, but they are the best books I have ever read!" writes a young reader from Saskatchewan, Canada.
With only a few days left of her Christmas holidays with Joe, Sallie, Jonathan, and Polly at the Shaw house, Mandie is shocked to hear that a turkey has been stolen from Aunt Lou's oven in broad daylight. Whoever would do such a thing, and where have they taken it? Might is still be hidden in the house?
Mandie and her friends begin the search for the missing turkey, but instead of solving the mystery, they uncover another mystery, and then another, and another. No matter how hard they try, they can't see, to solve any of them. But when Dr. Woodard disappears, things get very serious-and dangerous!
Still nothing can chase away the pain that Mandie knows is coming!

This is a very good book!!!!!!!!!
#30 is ssooo sad!!!! and good Oct 11, 2004
The plot is about a missing turkey, which didn't really appeal to me, but otherwise the book was good. The end made me hungry for the next book!!!! If the mystery weren't so boring, this would be one of the best Mandie books ever.
This is SSSOOOO good!!! Oct 9, 2004
Mandie and the Long Good-Bye is probably the best Mandie book I've read. Joe is going off to college, but Mandie tries to put it off for as long as possible. A turkey is missing from the kitchen oven, so Mandie, Joe, Jonathan and Sallie search for it (along with the annoying neighbor Polly). Suddenly Dr.Woodard, Joe's dad, disappears, and things get more serious. No matter what Mandie does, she knows that soon Joe is really leaving. The ending leaves you DIEING for the next book and an answer to a question!
Should have been called 'Mandie and the Turkey Theft' Dec 5, 2003
Joe will be leaving for collage soon, and Mandie tries to put off the parting as much as she can. But things start looking even darker when Dr. Woodard disappears along with the Thanksgiving turkey. This time Joe puts no restrictions on her, seeing as the missing person is his father. All their wanderings lead to a very surprising-and scary-discovery.
This book could have been better. I was puzzled that Lois Gladys Leppard titled the book 'The Long Goodbye' when the goodbye doesn't come until the end, and takes up about 2 or 3 pages, that's it. It should have been called 'Mandie and the Turkey Theft' or something like that.
Awesome! Aug 5, 2003
This book is absolutely so wonderful! It is a must-read!
