Judy has a lovely “rainbow” wedding only briefly marred by a bomb going off at the reception. It could have been the end of the Judy Bolton series, but luckily Judy’s little orphan flower girl, Roberta, who we met in the previous book saves the day. Coincidences abound and there is danger around every corner, along with some nice romance between Judy and Peter. A careful reader will find a number of aspects that strain credulity, but I’m gonna put them in the context of the original target audience.
So far I’m not a Roberta fan, but she is going to be around for a few more books, so I’ll try to keep an open mind. She did almost get herself blown up to save Judy so I’m willing to give her a pass for now.
