The Lucy Wilson Mysteries are a series of YA novels featuring Brigadier Alistair Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart’s granddaughter Lucy Wilson and her best friend Hobo Kostinen. The Brigadier & the Bledoe Cadets was the fifth novel in the Lucy Wilson series published in 2019.
The novel finds the Brigadier lost in time and body hopping into Lucy’s friend Hobo. The two of them end up using Lucy’s time ring to go back to 1937 and investigate an occurrence and mystery at a stone circle. We get some interesting back story to the Brig’s childhood with his older brother James. The book is well written and fast paced and it is always nice to see Lucy interact with her late grandfather. I miss Hobo as for most of the novel the Brig was inhabiting his body. 7 out of 10.
