Synopsis :
When a storm damages the roof of their clubhouse, the Bobwhites are desperate to raise the money to repair it.  Brian offers the money he had saved to buy a car, but Trixie and Honey come up with a plan to get the money and keep Brian's car.  A diamond ring, a strangely dressed man, a unicycle and a dead deer become elements of a strange mystery that in the end isn't so mysterious.

Points of Interest:
The weirdest thing about this book is there wasn't any mystery, just a whole lot of miscommunication and misunderstandings!

The best thing about this book would have to be those subtle hints of jealousy and confusion Jim suffers from when Trixie pretends to be in love with Honey's cousin, Ben.
