    This is the second My Mystery Party that I have hosted. Both were huge hits with our friends! The downloads are easy to understand and the stories and characters are great! This Album Release party was for my daughter and her friends - as soon as they were done they asked if they can do another one next month! I also appreciated that it was age appropriate as described (13 and up).
