About the book series
Set in Switzerland in the 1930’s, the T. S. Livingston book series follows American twins Maddie and Jo Livingston as they solve mysteries, make friends, and find adventure throughout Europe.
In the first book, T. S. Livingston and the Mystery at Madame Molineaux’s, the Livingstons’ archaeological work takes them on a mysterious year-long excavation in Siberia, much too dangerous for two twelve-year-old girls. Maddie and Jo are whisked off to a castle in Switzerland, where they find themselves piecing together a mystery of their own! Madame Molineaux’s School for Girls is filled with interesting students and professors from all over Europe, but it doesn’t take long for the girls to figure out that this is no ordinary boarding school: bizarre animals, hidden tapestries, secret tunnels, and a long list of unanswered questions keep Maddie, Jo, and their new friends searching for clues around every corner. Where is that snotty Mary Spivey going when she sneaks out of her dormitory at night? What secret is their beloved headmistress is trying to protect? Who is concealing treasures in the unlikeliest of hiding places? The girls must put all these strange pieces together to discover the staggering truth—and to save their school before Madame Molineaux’s closes its doors—for good!
