more school murder
Jolly Foul Play: A Murder Most Unladylike Mystery - Robin Stevens

The girls are back at Deepdean for a new term and the new Head Girl, Elizabeth Hurst who is a well known bully, fond of secrets and good at using them to get her own way. None of the girls are surprised when she ends up dead and now the school is in chassis and Daisy and Hazel have to find the culprit and try to ensure that they don't get away with it.

The story is getting a bit stretched in school but it's entertaining.

Murder Most Unladylike - Robin Stevens

I particularly liked the dynamic between Hazel and Daisy. I was nervous about Hazel's character but don't remember anything offensive about the way she was written. A good girl detective series. Would pair with Friday Barnes (for the boarding school aspect).

interwar mystery for kids
First Class Murder - Robin Stevens

This is a nice reflection of Murder on the Orient Express which is referenced a few times in the text. Daisy Wells and Hazel Wong are taking a holiday with Hazel's father on the Orient Express and of course there's a murder. Officailly there's no-one there to investigate but the two girls use their wits to resolve the mystery.

Entertaining and I like how Hazel is developing as a character.

Young detectives
Arsenic For Tea - Robin Stevens

In this second book we're in Daisy Well's family home, Fallingford, for the holidays.  Hazel wong and two other of their classmates are also there to celebrate Daisy's birthday.  When one of the guests, who has proven themselves generally unpopular dies from poisoning Daisy and Hazel get caught up on the investigation.  


It's very much a Country House mystery, with bonus isolation due to a rain storm flooding access and the girls have to use their smarts to investigate.  They don't like some of the conclusions they have to come too but they do try to be as neutral as possible.


It's a good read with some great characters and it all falls together well.


Using it for the Country House Square and it would be perfectly viable for the Baker Street Irregulars as well.

Arsenic For Tea - Robin Stevens

This was going to be for Baker Street Irregulars but it's also a Country House story, I think I'll assign this one to Country House and read the sequel for Baker Street.
