Murder Most Unladylike
Synopsis: Schoolgirl detectives Daisy Wells and Hazel Wong are at Daisy’s home, Fallingford, for the holidays. Daisy’s glamorous mother is throwing a tea party for Daisy’s birthday, and the whole family is invited, from eccentric Aunt Saskia to dashing Uncle Felix. But it soon becomes clear that this party isn’t really about Daisy at all. Naturally, Daisy is furious.
Then one of their party falls seriously, mysteriously ill – and everything points to poison.
With wild storms preventing anyone from leaving, or the police from arriving, Fallingford suddenly feels like a very dangerous place to be. Not a single person present is what they seem – and everyone has a secret or two. And when someone very close to Daisy looks suspicious, the Detective Society must do everything they can to reveal the truth . . . no matter the consequences
200words (or less) review: Hazel and Daisy are back and I am most definitely utterly and extremely delighted about this! Even more so because there will be a third book published later on this year!!! Robin Stevens thank you SO much!
I shall try and tone down the exclamation marks now.
As previously Hazel is our narrator and does a marvellous job but in this book we do see a slightly more emotional side of Daisy. It is her family that ends up filling most of the murder suspect list after all. I was pleased that the Detective Agency gained a couple of members for this case and how Hazel took charge.
Love the setting, the writing, the mystery and most of all Hazel and Daisy. Arsenic for Tea ticks all the boxes and I can’t wait to get my hands on the next book in the series.
